FADA Newbridge

  • Print

FADA is a network set up by volunteers, mostly from Co Kildare, preparing communities for peak oil by focusing on the localisation of the economy. It was formed after the Energy Forum, an event discussing peak oil organised in April 2006 by the Newbridge Integral Philosophy Group.

FADA’s objective is to help create and maintain a vibrant, diverse, secure and sustainable community by fostering ingenuity through local projects and positive action.

As a start, FADA Newbridge has been set up as a pilot branch in Newbridge to work towards the group’s objectives in the local area. It is envisaged that similar groups will be set up in other parts of Co Kildare and will be able to utilise the experience gained from FADA Newbridge.

Thursday 10th April 2008
Screening of 'The Power Of Community'
7.30 Riverbank Arts Centre, Newbridge

Admission Free

As part of FADA’s ongoing work in the local community we are screening "The Power of Community – How Cuba survived peak oil", an inspiring documentary on how the people of Cuba worked together to build a sustainable community.

With oil price increases and climate change, communities everywhere will have to be less dependent on oil and more self sufficient. This is a very inspiring example on how this challenge has been met in other communities.

The screening will be followed by discussion and refreshments.
