Everyone Is Crew
HoriZone is a zone of resistance to the G8, self-organisation, horizontal decision making, ecology and autonomy in action. It is based upon organising in an open and participatory way, inviting all to take part in the creation of their own futures. The whole site has been set up by volunteers and everyone on site should help out with its. Different groups of people (collectives) will be coordinating different aspects of the site. Information on how to get involved will be announced in meetings. The gate tent will also be coordinating jobs. It should be an inspiring example of self-organisation so get involved!

Camping
The site is organised into a series of neighbourhoods (barrios) which you are encouraged to camp in and contribute to. Each neighbourhood will strive for self-sufficiency but will also contribute to the running and well being of the entire site.

Food
Vegan meals, breakfast and hot drinks are being provided by a collection of kitchens that are not-for-profit and from within the movement. Vouchers will need to be brought for each meal and will cost roughly 1.50 a meal. They rely on volunteers to help chop vegetables and wash up and if you have any food donations bring them along.

Much more information will be in our welcome pack, available as you arrive at the site.
