ABOUT THE EVENT
The focus of this event will be business and the global economic system: from growth to regeneration. Specifically, we will consider:
- What role does business have in a regenerative system?
- Is 'growth' an outdated economic concept?
- What is our responsibility and role as individuals in a potential economic transition (into a regenerative economy)?
The event is a Zoom session in an 'open space' context. To learn more about how open space gatherings are done, please see one or more of the following:

The session will open with centering in group presence and check-in. The agenda will then be defined by session attendees collectively. The cohosts will facilitate this process, including scheduling the agenda items for discussion. Centering, check-in, and setting the agenda should take about 30-minutes, followed by two 30-minute discussions about the items on the agenda. The number of attendees will guide how that will be done, e.g., using breakout rooms or not. A short break will follow the opening centering and check-in, and another will be taken between the two discussion sessions.
Attendees are not required or expected to have any professional, academic, or other experience or expertise in business or finance in general..
The day before the event (on 9 February 2021), the Zoom link will be sent to all who select "Going" or "Interested."
