Goteo #285: "The goal is not to imagine the future, the goal is to make better decisions."

💭 The revolutionaries bequeathed to us the idea that dreaming is essential, but only if we believe in those dreams and are committed to making them come true. However, when we talk about the future, action is often relegated to the background, waiting for that future to arrive on its own. That is why, instead of talking about a single, immovable future, we propose to sow desirable futures 🌱, recognising the plurality of possibilities that are open to us.

🤝 There are possible, plausible, probable... and desirable futures. The latter are the ones that really matter to us, those that each community chooses as desirable and appropriate, taking into account its specific needs and objectives.

✊🏽 The projects presented in this bulletin are framed in the construction of desirable futures for all. Their value lies in the fact that they not only imagine them, but also make the best decision for them to grow and become the now.

Reviu. Flat review portal

🤩 Can you imagine an online platform where you could share flat reviews? It's already happening! Reviu is a project that aims to tackle the opacity of the real estate market, promoting transparency and offering detailed information about the quality of the property, the treatment received by the real estate agency or the owner, and the conditions of the community of neighbours.

😡 We are tired of real estate speculation and abuses in rented housing, that is why Reviu is developed by the Urban Research Institute of Barcelona (IDRA), with a multidisciplinary team committed to research, intervention in the field of housing and software development.

⚖️ If you also believe in fair and equal access to housing, don't hesitate to participate in the project, you can see all the rewards they offer here:

Let's consolidate the Foodcoop!

🤗 Since its opening in 2022, Foodcoop has established itself as the first cooperative and participatory supermarket in Barcelona, with a clear commitment to more sustainable food consumption, focusing on product quality, waste reduction and respect for the land and those who work it.

🎯 With this campaign, Foodcoop seeks to guarantee the economic viability of the project, incorporating new actions to improve the supermarket, such as opening it to the general public, implementing the online shop and home delivery.

👉🏼 To achieve all these objectives, it is necessary to cover at least four months of expenses for the premises and supplies. You can collaborate directly here:

Let's protect our forests

🧐 Who pays the consequences of evading environmental regulations? The Arabako Mendiak Aske campaign aims to pay the legal costs after the rejection of the allegations presented against the construction of two wind power plant projects in areas of high ecological value.

🌱 The objectives of the campaign include promoting the defence of the environment and biodiversity, raising awareness of the importance of the transition to more sustainable energy sources, and raising awareness of the need for a radical change in Europe's energy system.

🗣 That is why they are asking for your help, as well as all the groups related to the environment and those people with sensitivity and concern for nature. To collaborate in the conservation of this area in the Basque mountains of enormous environmental value, you can do so through
