Conversation on a New Economy for One Planet Region
Monday, March 20 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
What kind of an economy do we need for a One Planet Region? A conversation with Guy Dauncey, author of Journey to the Future: A Better World is Possible.
There are as many as 25 different forces and factors that combined to drag western civilization out of the feudal age. From private business to central banking, from the scientific method to public heathcare, they combined to bring us the world we have today, and the end of the Holocene Era.
Which of these 25 forces are responsibile for the mess we are in? And how do we change these key components of the economy, locally and globally so that they guide us to the economy twe need for a One Planet Region?
The purpose of the conversation is to facilitate community discussion of the concept of a One Planet Region with a high quality of life, engaging as many community sectors and groups as possible in as many ways as possible.
AND… to facilitate the development of a tangible vison of what a One Planet Region would look and feel like, what it would mean for me in my daily life; and the formal adoption of a One Planet Region Plan for the Greater Victoria Region and mechanisms for tracking and reporting on our progress.
The Conversations are focused on the complex interconnected set of changes that are need to become a One Planet Region: from values to technology, the arts to engineering, the economy to faith communities.
The Conversations seek to connect citizens, community groups and sectors that share this common purpose, or want to learn more about it, but that may not ordinarily connect with each other or identify their shared interests and common purpose.
