The Gift Economy and a new Sustainability Trail for the Blue Mountains
This month’s networking gathering will bring sustainability to life with two fascinating speakers and an opportunity to get involved. There will also be time for discussion and the sharing of ideas.
Phil Spears is coordinating a new Sustainability Trail and accompanying events on the 8th and 9th of December as the new headline event for the Festival of Resilience. The two day event will include a trail highlighting sustainable Blue Mountains businesses and a sustainable fashion show, plus popular speakers presenting on sustainable living. Phil will share this exciting vision with us and invite people to volunteer to help make the festival happen.
Sid Parissi will talk on Beyond the Circular Economy: The Gift economy. Sid will discuss how the Circular Economy or, Going Circular, is a step in the right direction, but needs to progress towards a society based on a Gift Economy. He will be challenging the current economic system and arguing that if we want to create a humane, sustainable, environmentally safe society on the only, and finite, living space we have, planet Earth, then we need to put an alternative in place. Sid is on the Board of Lyttletons Coop, he is a member of Action for Community and Environment, Blue Mountains, and lectures at Charles Sturt University.
The meeting will be held at the Grand View Hotel, 174 Great Western Hwy, Wentworth Falls NSW 2782.
