Conversations for a Life Economy

Conversations for a Life Economy is a programme of talks, carried out in partnership between Reboot the Future and the Institute for Ecological Civilization (EcoCiv). 90 business leaders and 22 young changemakers engaged in transformational conversations to shift to a system that works towards the wellbeing of all life on our planet – a life economy.

Reboot led 6 private conversations exploring 2 themes, aiming to forge understanding, connection and inspire action

  • ‘Wild Love’ - examines a Golden Rule approach to nature, and what it means to accord the natural world with the same respect as we wish for ourselves.
  • 'Deep Time’ - questions how we as a culture relate to time and what this means for life on earth and our own well-being.

EcoCiv then enabled leaders to share their experience in the public realm. This featured in 4 panel conversations at COP26 in Glasgow, 4 live panel conversations recorded on YouTube, a podcast series and toolkit. See links below to find out more. 

The podcast series features significant leaders working towards the goal of a Life Economy. It deep dives into the values and experiences that drive their work, the transformations they are working towards and the ways that listeners can succeed in their own initiatives in their own life.
