Yes! - to new definitions and questioning the old economic models.

‘The reigning economics is concerned with settings and incentives that activate the “me” side of human nature. The next economics will study the activation of this “we” side as well.’

We are so saddened by the horrific fire in London. As the ash begins to settle, and the body count rises, we find ourselves asking questions. Were the flames fed by rising inequality, de-regulation and an economy skewed to globalised, corporate profit? Did indoctrinated obedience contribute to the deadly consequences of following directives to 'sit tight and wait for rescue'?

A timely reminder about what is possible when local communities come together in participatory democracy- as we watch the events of the UK election unfold!

‘By rebuilding society from the bottom up, it will eventually force parties and governments to fall into line with what people want. We can do this. And we don’t need anyone’s permission to begin.’

"At least 100 different pesticides are known to cause adverse neurological effects in adults, and all of these substances must therefore be suspected of being capable of damaging developing brains as well".

Less fear, More hope - what a wonderful initiative!

‘Democracy was born at local level, and that’s where we can win it back.’

‘Now is the time to demonstrate the potential of towns and cities to resist hate and to spur democratic transformation across the world. In the face of hate, walls and borders, we will build global networks of solidarity and hope among city halls and citizens.’
