What a nice thing to read in a UN report:
There needs to be a shift away from economic models that value growth for growth’s sake, toward a new mindset that respects planetary boundaries, recognizes the economy as a subset of nature, and supports the concept of living in harmony with nature (reflected in SDG targets 8.4, 12.2 and 12.8, in particular)
@nicksellen The economy that is destroying our planet, serves a 1% minority of very rich people. The question is: why do we need a 1% minority of very rich people?
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
