Thanks to Arie , next Thursday officials from Tel Aviv Muni sustainability dept will visit TAMI.
The purpose is to obtain financial support as an independent hub where there is substantial sustainability and community activity. Basically ask them to help us do what we already do .
50,000 NIS per year would help a lot ( but not all of it has to come out of their budget)
While there’s an off chance they’ll write us a cheque on the spot, it’s likely they’ll tell us about the official ways they can support us, and perhaps themselves come up with new ideas for the future, or point us to additional support.
There is already one relevant call קול קורא לתמיכה ביוזמות סביבתיות (also thanks to Arie for pointing it out)
relevant with up to 15,000 NIS per proposal.
Perhaps it is possible to submit as 2-3 separate initiatives from within TAMI.
So if you’ve done any such activities or have ideas for new ones please come! (see list below for some ideas) ( up to 1person per 7sqm of tami )
Guidelines: During the visit please focus on positive relevant activity that’s been going on (see list below) and avoid negative talk i.e. arnona whinges are a big nono (unless they ask explicitly).
Can also leverage stories of non-independent hubs than have/are being set up by or with municipalities in Yahud and Ramat Gan with x10 the money and 1/2 the impact of an organic community.
Examples of such past projects / events / initiatives:
- Bike repair workshop
- give/take market
- repair cafe
- reuse of x:
** upscaling used rubber
** recycling plastic for 3d printing
** anything done with scrap wood or metal
** salvaging and re-use of food scraps
** arts from scraps
** refurbishing or re-use of computers, tv screens
- urban agriculture
- any project using renewable energy or re-using energy
- small-scale / personal / independent manufacturing workshops
- GHG science
etc etc the list is long
