While most people are unhappy with the way the world is going, we’ve been told there is no alternative and for the most part we’ve believed it. But deep down we all know things don't have to be this way, and as Charles Eisenstein would say, there is a more beautiful world out there our hearts know is possible.
There are far more beautiful, fair, sustainable, peaceful and joyful ways of living and organising societies. Knowing some more of the detail about historical and existing utopian examples can make us more determined and better able to change the world and our own lives for the better.
We'll also discuss theories of change and how we can each best work towards changing the world.
Hopelessness is good for the system, but there are ways to change things, and knowing this stuff can be really empowering.
