The Peacebuildings Yurt
A Journey of Peace
From a dream to CAD to reality. By the grace of Christian (whose head I am happily squeezing in the picture above) we have the yurt and the trailer both ready to go on this journey.
Christian offered to pay for all the materials for the yurt, including the canvas cover and felt insulation commissioned from Yurtewerkstat, and then offered his labour and use of his workshop for free to work alongside me to build the Yurt and then bought the trailer all on the understanding that I would finally crowdfund to repay him.
So finally is now.... as it is time to take it on the road.... it is time for action.
The yurt is a traveling epicenter of change. Its Reciprocal Frame roof combined with the work we do touches people in many different ways. For some the interconnected beams mirror our natural world and express how we humans can live in peace with ourselves, each other and all life on earth in a sustainable peaceful way. For some it is a very personal pathway to the knowing of peace, happiness and freedom.
I need you help to bring this project quickly into being.
As I have said we have the yurt but have to pay for the materials (€26,000) and the huge trailer which has been properly racked out to secure all the different elements securely as we travel (€8000). We now need a vehicle to pull to total weight of 3200Kg (€12000 for something old but strong) We need food, fuel and accommodation for the team for the duration
Our initial target is €75000 and the more we raise the longer and further we go. The will be a further crowdfunding to create an online support program for those who have spent time in the yurt and want more...
All names of contributors and contributions go on the list unless anonymity is requested. The project will be audited to show where your money has gone... Every contribution is welcome no matter how small or large,
and is more than money....
I will keep everyone up to date in the newsletter so Please subscribe if you
Money is the fuel but I need more.
Without your help to open doors to people and places the penetration that this project can achieve will be less than possible
I am willing to walk into any room, anywhere, to meet and sit with anyone, no matter how high or how low...
but I need your help to get me there.
This project is not just about talking and meeting with the converted. Help me to know where there might be a gap, a potential, a steeping stone on the pathway of global change to peace and sustainability.
