Enhancing resilience through creativity and collaboration

In my recent lectures, interviews and presentations, I’ve been talking about the inevitable transition to “The Butterfly Economy.” I define this roughly as an economy that does not require continuous overall growth in output and consumption, that maximizes the use-value obtained from each unit of resources, and which  is both more equitable and provides a better quality of life for all.

The challenge now is to develop strategies and behaviors that move things in the right direction. In my view, this must include the stimulation of creativity, better methods of decision making, and new structures for collaboration.

This video by Andrea Saveri provides some insights and examples that may be helpful.
