We assume human wants are unlimited, that people prefer to gratify their desires sooner rather than later, that human needs (and indeed everything real) are quantifiable. These assumptions extend their influence far beyond economics. Charles will explore where they came from, and what the world might look like when they shift.
Charles Eisenstein is a teacher, speaker, and writer focusing on themes of civilization, consciousness, money, and human cultural evolution. David Korten says Eisenstein is “one of the up-and-coming great minds of our time.”
Charles will be joined by Jacqueline McGlade, who at the end of May will have completed an incredible ten years as director of the European Environment Agency, based in Copenhagen. Jacquie will discuss what she sees as a knowledge revolution. To succeed in the future we will have to create new ways of networking knowledge in a radically different way. We will need to tap into new forms of social power, learning how to co-operate with people who we do not know and may not even like.
This event is a double bill with ‘Business Innovation with Richard Branson’ – you can buy a special discounted ticket for both events.
