Wild work: connecting the social and ecological by design.
An explosion of new economy models is surfacing all around the world: Sharing. Peer to Peer. Commons’ ownership. Mobility as a service. Bioregions. Local money. Transition Towns. Something is happening -- but is there a pattern?
For John Thackara the answer is yes --a "joyful new story about what an economy is actually for.”
His new book How to Thrive in the Next Economy celebrates the power of small actions to transform the bigger picture -- especially in the ways projects are connecting together as social and ecological systems: food commons, social farming, fibersheds, and care cooperatives.
For Thackara, these arrangements add up to a new kind of social infrastructure for the next economy.
