Inhabit

Humanity is more than ever threatened by its own actions; we hear a lot about the need to minimize footprints and to reduce our impact. But what if our footprints were beneficial? What if we could meet human needs while increasing the health and well-being of our planet? This is the premise behind permaculture: a design process based on the replication of patterns found in nature. INHABIT explores the many environmental issues facing us today and examines solutions that are being applied using the ecological design lens of permaculture. Focused mostly on the Northeastern and Midwestern regions of the United States, Inhabit provides an intimate look at permaculture peoples and practices ranging from rural, suburban, and urban landscapes.

A River Changes Course

“We’ve worked so hard on this land,” says Sav Samourn. “And now they’ve come to destroy it all. Sooner or later it will all be gone.“ In her directorial debut, award-winning filmmaker Kalyanee Mam returns to her homeland to capture the stories of three young Cambodians struggling to maintain their traditional way of life while the modern world closes in around them.

Deep in the jungle, Sav Samourn struggles as large companies encroach and “progress” claims the life-giving forests. She discovers there’s little room for wild animals, ghosts – and the home she has always known.

In a fishing hamlet, Sari Math must quit school to help support his family. But as the fish catch dwindles, Sari and his family find their livelihood threatened.

In a village, Khieu Mok must leave to seek work in a Phnom Penh factory to help pay her family’s debts. But city life proves no better, and Khieu struggles between her need to send money home and her duty to be with her loved ones.

From Cambodia’s forests to its rivers, from its idyllic rice fields to the capital’s pulsing heart, forces of radical change are transforming the landscape of the country – and the dreams of its people.

a)    Requests for Emergency expenditures from other Workgroups to be approved immediately without consensus of the Finance Workgroup as a whole. Emergency expenditures can be taken to mean, including but not limited to: expenditures that are necessary for maintaining the health of the campers on the square and/or expenditures that are necessary for maintaining the occupation of the square.

b)    Requests for Non-Emergency expenditures from other Workgroups to be reviewed by the Finance Workgroup. If more then three members of the Finance Workgroup agree to and no member of the Finance Workgroup blocks the proposal within a 24 (twenty-four) hour period after having received the proposal by email, the Finance Workgroup as a whole assumes to have reached consensus.
