    For some of us home is a physical shelter, an asset, a source of comfort, identity and belonging. For others the scene of a crime, of nightmares and a point of no return. In changing times, with people on the move, displaced and disenfranchised, we ask the poets, the travellers, the story tellers to examine what home means to them and perhaps understand what it means for us all.

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

    When: Sunday 23 October at 10am

    Where: Open State Hub

    Speakers: Erin Brockovich, Phillip Adams, Dr Ali Alizadeh, Nick Drake, Ali Cobby Eckermann, Michael Mills, Karl Winda Telfer, Manal Younus, 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.
