The Economic Design dimension will be facilitated by two experts, Jorge Koho and Naresh Giangrande.
Shifting the Global Economy Towards Sustainability and Regeneration
“Transformative innovation applied to redesigning the human presence on Earth requires global cooperation in the process of building circular and regionally focused economies in support of resilient communities and the regeneration of their ecosystems. Thriving regional economies, supported by scale-linking collaboration and global solidarity, are the basis for collaborative abundance for all.”
Community Banks and Currencies
“Thirty plus years of research and analysis have convinced me that true political democracy cannot prevail until economic democracy has been achieved, and economic democracy cannot be achieved without transcending the global, central-banking, interest-based, debt-money regime and the debt-growth imperative that is built into it.” Thomas H. Greco, Jr

“A simple story lies at the heart of our current economic system. It is a story of separation between humanity and nature. This story creates alienation, lack of belonging, fear and the need to control. Living this story ultimately makes us see through a lens of scarcity and competition for limited resources. Instead of living well within planetary boundaries and in collaborative abundance shared between all of humanity and life as a whole, we have chosen a path of trying to predict, control, manipulate and exploit nature as if we were somehow separate from life’s life-sustaining cycles that maintain this planet in habitable conditions for complex organisms like us.”
