Sun, May 3 at 1 p.m. | 75 minutes
Clubs: Member-led conversations around books, films, etc.
The public discourse around the Covid-19 in the mainstream media has been narrowly focused on statistics, whether of economic devastation, infection rate or death toll. Eisenstein invites us to zoom out from this myopic view and critically analyze the political, social, economic and cultural conditions that allowed a public health and economic crisis like this to flourish. What stories, systems and structures contributed to creating this global crisis? What is it teaching us about how we can organize people and resources?
This conversation will be an opportunity for self-inquiry and examination of our own beliefs and assumptions about our society, our political and socioeconomic systems, the coronavirus pandemic and what kind of world might be possible as a result. Let us come together to discover: what kind of “normal” is desirable? What world do we want to collectively create?
We will be exchanging ideas and experiences in the spirit of dialogue, an experience of “listening deeply enough to be changed by what you learn”.
This event is member-led.
Zoom link will be sent upon signup.
