Nature's principles—kinship, cooperation, diversity, symbiosis and cycles of continuous creation absent of waste—can also serve as metaphoric guideposts for organizing an equitable, compassionate and democratic society.

Creative Alternatives to Capitalism Conference

Much store is now put upon the idea that capitalism can recover its elan and exit the grumbling crisis that now besets it through the construction of a cognitive, creative and ethical capitalism that rests on the activities of so-called creative classes. We dispute this thesis and aim to show how an alternative to capitalism is not only possible but necessary if a better, more democratic and more socially just future is to be procured for all. To this end, we bring together creative thinkers and practitioners from around the world who are exploring alternatives outside the imprisoning box of conventional capitalist thinking. An anti-capitalist alternative is already in the making. Our aim is to mark and celebrate its creative possibilities.
