One of the main streams of activity for the REconomy Business Network this year has been focused on trying to educate ourselves and creating opportunities to spread knowledge throughout the town. This past July, we turned Totnes into an open university, hosting a series of lectures designed to improve our level of economic literacy. It began with the film the Four Horsemen, screened at the Barn and with an appearance by the film makers. The next week we hosted Jonathan Dawson, co-chair of Schumacher's Economics for Transition programme, for his lecture Beyond Growth. Then we hosted an inspirational evening with Charles Eisenstein who developed the philosophical underpinnings of his Sacred Economics. Closing the series, Jonathan Dawson returned for a talk on Enterprises of the Future exploring new business models for a new economy.
