We are seeing the emergence of new ways of thinking about wealth and money, of doing business, of exchanging with each other and with the earth, that reflect the age-old world views of connectedness held by indigenous peoples throughout the world.  

The first session of a new series on Economies that Work - For All of Us

Session 1 - Idle No More as a love story

The life support systems of our planet are being destroyed by the growth imperative of capitalism and the stolen commons, making it harder to live in peace with the Earth. The First Peoples of this land can no longer tolerate the destruction of their Mother. Nor can we as allies sit idly by.

What might an economic system based on the traditional teachings of balance and harmony look like in a modern urban context?

How best can we indigenous and non-indigenous city dwellers learn to bring about the necessary changes in governance and economic relationships that will enhance the quality of life for all of us?

Join us for a session with special guests Philip Cote (OCADU and widely known artist and Aboriginal arts advocate) and Kevin Guest (Land and Mining Activist) for a dialogue on restorative economics in 2015 in this our first session of the series.
