About Caroline Whyte
Seán Ó Conláin and Caroline Whyte exchange some initial impressions of the European Parliament's recent seminal 'Beyond Growth' conference.
Caroline Whyte speaks with Sarah McKinley of the Democracy Collaborative, who explains what Community Wealth Building and social enterprise are, and how they can help us to visualise and plan towards a more regenerative economic system.
Along with our partners in this Hub, we're working to achieve an economy in Ireland which is no longer focussed on economic growth as a goal, but rather on societal and ecological wellbeing.
Caroline Whyte and Seán Ó Conláin speak with Anne Barrington of the Ó Cualann Cohousing Alliance and Uuriintuya Batsaikhan of Positive Money Europe.
'A big theme of this book is how science can get blocked out by fear - the kind of fear that can lead people to vote for racist, misogynist, anti-environmental demagogues,' writes Caroline Whyte.
High levels of enthusiasm and readiness for change were expressed in the course of this participatory event, with emphasis placed on a need for fundamental economic transformation to bring about greater community empowerment and increase overall societal wellbeing.
