World-Making: Imagining a Well Cared for Planet


World-Making: Imagining a Well Cared for Planet, presentation, Infrastructures of Care, Hekler, Oct. 14, 2021. 

What are the common principles, ideas, and visions that we take for granted are shared universally? What motivations other than self-interest and short-term profit can be encouraged, designed into a system, and used to produce better outcomes? In this workshop we will examine processes, principles, and visions for the planetary as an exercise of writing a constitution, in the effort to begin bringing about a legally binding global community that can preserve and protect life, not just of humanity, but of billions of other species with which we share space.
