Alt Orgs - Sustaining the Human
WINNER OF CHANNEL 4 / BRIT DOC'S CREATIVE CATALYST AWARD
GREEDY CORPORATIONS AND SELFISH POLITICIANS HAVE FAILED US. BUT WHAT ARE THE ALTERNATIVES?
With capitalism in crisis and the existential threat of catastrophic climate change, "Alt Orgs – Sustaining the Human" is part of PLANET CHANGE, an ongoing cross-platform media project and documentary in development about creating a sustainable future. Could innovative pioneers and alternative organisations such as co-ops and employee owned companies hold the key to a more sustainable planet? Are they flawed models that only work in some circumstances? Or do we need a whole new eco-system of innovation to faces the challenges that lie ahead?
Can we imagine compelling futures and initiative interventions to save our planet and create a paradigm shift for a more sustainable tomorrow? With scientists saying we already have 90% of the technologies to tackle climate change and a breakdown in post war democratic consensus, the need to understand how change happens takes on a new urgency. We need to engage with the challenge of building consensus and learning from best practice.
To quote William Gibson, "The future is already here - it's just not very evenly distributed."
