    Sustainable jobs in sustainable communities

    When: Saturday 22 October at 11:15AM

    Where: Elder Hall

    Speakers: Heather Smith, Prof John Spoehr, Sean Williams

    A sustainable future means more than renewable energy and environmentally sound food production. How will citizens earn a living? Hi-tech jobs in a global digital work space? Looking after yourself in a local organic co-operative? Who will build the houses, fix the taps, keep track of the accounts? Will it be you? Will the robots take over? Will the value we place on time, money and possessions change?

    Shifting from an extractive value regime to a (re-)generative value regime

    When: Sunday 23 October at 10am

    Where: Open State Hub

    Speakers: Heather Smith, Prof John Spoehr, Sean Williams, Mark Pesce, Dr Fiona Kerr, Michel Bauwens

    We are in the final decades of a value regime based on unsustainable extraction of rare global resources. This is an unprecedented challenge in the history of our world, since previous crises were limited in geographic scope. Many question whether we can pull it off. But hundreds of thousands of productive communities are experimenting with the new ‘generative’ value regime. This report from the trenches may well represent the building blocks of a new sustainable world civilization.
