Help us get UBUNTU farm Ireland started
We have established our first community project with our 54 acre farm in Tipperary. The farm will be returned to a working state over the course of the next few months with the ultimate goal to open a restaurant on site. Our volunteers are due to start work on the farm end of January. If you have suitable skills and are interested in participating, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
One Small Town Manifesto
We can change our society, one small town at a time. Let's get started in 2017 by finding one mayor and council who want to make their small town an exceptional place to live.
We can transform this town by following the concrete business plan outlined in the "UBUNTU - one small town manifesto". If you have a place in mind, please send us your nomination including your contact details and the reason for your nomination and we will be in touch shortly.
UBUNTU Music & Arts Festival
Join us for our first UBUNTU Music & Arts festival in Ireland. Dates to be announced soon!
We will host a gathering of musicians and artists that will share their talents and gifts with us. This festival will be hosted in celebration of the launch of UBUNTU Ireland. As special treat we will have Michael Tellinger opening the festival for us and providing a workshop for those interested.
Education that really matters
How much of what you learned in school do you consider to count as actual life skills? Being honest, the % is likely very small. The things that really matter are not taught in school, in fact a lot of these are actively discouraged - like critical thinking for example. Instead, we are drilled to follow orders, to subordinate ourselves to authority, to ask for permission and wait for "breaks" to answer our body's needs and so on.
Most young adults have no idea what to do with their lives when they finish school. They have not learned about themselves, how to be good people or how to contribute to society in a meaningful way - at least not in school. This does not make sense! This precious time of childhood should be a time of exploration, of inclusion into society (rather than exclusion), a time of growing into responsibilities and a time of observing role models.
