Our names are Adam Dzienis and Weronika Bloch. We met a few years ago. Each of us had a story and found ourselves in a certain punk life in which you feel you have to change something or something in you will die. When at one of the foreign workshops in Thessaloniki I heard about people trying to create independent communities by investing in small installations and producing so-called “clean energy”, I thought: – why couldn’t this be possible here in Poland? I told Adam about it and there was some hope. If we reached out to these initiatives and showed how they do it, maybe others would follow their example. Or maybe it is just a utopia and dream of a better world that will never change? We will not know if we do not try. We have decided to put everything on one scales. Nothing ventured nothing gained.
We want to reach places where local people establish and run energy cooperatives. The film will talk about the political and economic reality that makes these cooperatives possible. We also want to ask about the challenges facing those involved in such projects, including corporate lobbying, legal and administrative obstacles to investing in renewable energy sources, as well as efforts to move away from traditionally badly known cooperatives in some parts of Europe.
