If we are to enjoy a socially and environmentally sustainable future, our current economic system needs to change. But to what? What could a thriving economy with the wellbeing of people and the planet at its core look like? And how would it work?
We don’t need a crystal ball or to travel far to find out, as there are already so many examples of this new economy right here on our door step!
In partnership with The Goodness Inc, the Centre for Social Change is organising a day-long tour to visit a range of enterprises that provide us with clues and insights to a fairer and more sustainable economy. These enterprises are tackling some of the most important issues we face, including food production, waste management, social inclusion and energy production.
The tour will begin at the Centre for Social Change in the Valley with an overview of some of the innovative economic systems already operating around South East Queensland and then followed with visits to a range of enterprises leading the way in building a new economy including:
- An urban agriculture initiative
- A sustainable industrial park
- An innovative waste management organisation
- A renewable energy provider right here in the city
The bus tour is part of the Change Makers Festival 1st to 10th of November 2013 and is being crowd-funded to raise enough funds to bring it to life. A pledge of $30 towards this event will earn a seat on the bus and a delicious local lunch.
