“Throughout history, problems have arisen when the language used to represent reality fails to meet the needs and aspirations of people.”
David Bollier & Silke Helfrich – Free, Fair and Alive
Words, terms and categories of thought isolate and emphasise certain points of view. They determine what we notice and think about things – they shape our reality. So, if we want to create a new reality, we are going to need new language!
In this session we will introduce – and define – some of the basic terms which are used in discussions of the ‘regenerative economy’. No prior knowledge is needed – the whole point is to make our vocabulary as accessible as possible, to help communication between everyone on these topics.
If you have ever felt frustrated because people aren’t explaining their terms, or someone doesn’t understand you as well as they could, come and ‘feed two birds with one scone’ – taste our tentative terminological attempts, and collectively clarify our co-creative commons!
Registration is required so please book your tickets now and come ready to collaborate.
This is our chance to co-create the future we want, together!
Where: Online, Video conference, The Open Co-op
