Creating Tomorrow Together: Systems Change & the Next Economy/World Café
Our fundamental systems of governance and economics are changing, and the seeds of the next systems are emerging. What does that look like in your community, work, and life? How are we nourishing those seeds of possibility and growing this movement for a just transition regionally, nationally and globally? Come to an engaging World Café conversation about what we have learned this weekend, what unique contributions we are making, and how we can support one another in taking the next steps towards right livelihoods, new economies, and a system that benefits all life. With: Gar Alperovitz, the Democracy Collaborative & Next Systems Project. Hosted by: David Shaw, Santa Cruz Permaculture & UCSC Common Ground Center; Amy Lenzo, weDialogue & The World Cafe Community Foundation and Della Duncan, “deep economist” and co-producer of the Upstream Podcast.
