Transition Network conference 2012 preview: No:1 – Shane Hughes on the REconomy Day
Today we start a series of short posts to preview different aspects of the 2012 Transition Network conference (tickets now on sale!). We’ll be talking to different people who will be presenting workshops and other aspects of the conference, and hearing in their own words their plans and hopes for what they’ll be bringing to the event. Today it’s Shane Hughes of the REconomy Project, who talks about the REconomy Day and about the workshop that he and Fiona Ward will be presenting on the first day of the main conference (just click to play).
“We want to present these trigger points, these tipping points, that we’re coming close to in terms of the economic evolution that we are going through, the evolving new economy, and we want to get people excited about the fact that there are these oncoming tipping points that if we work towards these new features of a new economy could start to become, in the same light as climate change has runaway unstoppable tipping points, we believe the positive new economy has these runaway tipping points and we want to highlight them and discuss them”.
