Inquiry Group: Creating The Story of EDA
October 29, 2018 to June 24, 2019
Weekly on Mondays 8pm Eastern, 5pm Pacific, on Zoom

Join us for a highly informative and engaging discussion. Even if you haven’t participated from the beginning, you are welcome anytime.

Growing numbers of people don’t want capitalism anymore, but can’t articulate or even imagine an alternative. In the meantime, rising global temperatures are making it necessary to create a much more decentralized economic system.

In late October 2018, we began an organization-wide discussion into the dynamics of the global economic crisis and how we plan to respond through our Advocacy Program. As we share our understanding, perceptions, opinions of economic democracy, we are also developing EDA’s unique identity and message.

Here are a few topics we’ve covered so far:
Why is Economic Democracy so critical today?
What is the new cultural story of human need?
Why is the old story of individualism failing?
What happens as world resources and energy declines?

Here are some upcoming topics:
How will people increase social and ecological value?
How do we develop food, water and energy policy?
How do we engage with our elected representatives?

Looking forward to seeing you on the call. High marks for creativity!

I want to participate in the Inquiry Group!
