A continuous drop-in debate and discussion session about holistic sustainability on a systemic level. How do we arrange our society to achieve a sustainable balance that incorporates a holistic understanding of the interdependencies between all the areas of our society. We can’t save the environment if we only serve our own needs and we can’t save ourselves, if we only focus on the environment. Holistic sustainability is about incorporating all of it into a unified balance – so let’s explore the possibilities and challenges together.

Program for debate

14:30 - 14:55: Basic necessities

This is about fundamental necessities in modern life – what do we need to lead a more fulfilling life. Is it water, electricity, public transport, healthcare and education, telephony, internet, basic banking and healthy basic food?

15:00 - 15:25: Housing & homes

This is about our homes and the conditions of the housing market. Is having a home a privilege – or a right? Should everyone own their own home or is it ok, that a minority owns most of them. How can we recreate a balance that serves more of us?

15:30 - 16:00: Taxes

This is about how to finance a coherent and sustainable society. Are deductions for the rich – and taxes for the poor. Should taxes be based on transactions, and perhaps even automated entirely? How do we create a fair and easily manageable taxation system?

16:00 - 16:30: Break

This is about taking a break. We won't be able to push through if we forget to take breaks.

16:30 - 16:55: Education

This is about education and how we nurture the full potential of future generations. What are the most important things to learn? How do we create a foundation for lifelong learning, that respects our individuality, natural creativity and joy?

17:00 - 18:00: IT & Infrastructure

This is about what we need to make life easier and increase collaboration and creativity. Is innovation driven by competition – or by curiosity? Would technology work better if it was open? How do we create a better support system for our lives?
