About the Session

Eco-Dharma Talk Series session one.

Join this exploration of the ways in which we can reframe and understand the crises that we currently face and how we can live our way rather than know our way into the future. How is it possible to stop chasing the mirage of certainty and control in a complex and unpredictable world and instead collaborate in the creation of diverse regenerative cultures adapted to the unique biocultural conditions of place? 

Daniel Wahl makes the case for the importance of creating biomaterials-based circular economies that are conducive to life. He highlights the destructive nature of our economic system, where environmental and social costs are not adequately priced and regenerative activity is not incentivised. Daniel warns that conventional education systems based on competition are anachronistic, and that skills of collaboration must be nurtured to deliver regenerative economies that benefit all.
