Imagining the Ecocivilisation: Communities
We kindly invite you to join us at the second part of the Circular Business Academy webinar series of Ecocivilisation Talks, titled:
Communities in the Ecocivilisation, with the first part on Wednesday, 21st October and the second part on Wednesday, 4th November at 15.00 CET.
In the first part of the Communities session we will explore the concept of the Ecocivilisation with a focus on communities and societies as one of the most important factors of evolving our society to the next level. We will talk about what could be the right financial, legal and socio-cultural framework for the Ecocivilisation. How could the communities bring people together in the future and how could technology influence our relationships and the feeling of belonging? How can shifting values best be reflected in how money is distributed in society? These and many more questions will be discussed by our honourable speakers.
