hank you to all that came out to see and hear Lawrence Paul Luxweluptun last week. He made us cry, he made us angry, he made us uncomfortable. But he didn't leave anyone untouched.

 

Our economy needs urgent transformative change to end the impulses that are creating poverty and inequality, while accelerating the climate crisis and the worldwide collapse in biodiversity. Our businesses too need deep transformative change, which has already begun.

He is busy researching his next book, titled The Economics of Kindness: The Birth of a New Cooperative Economy. He is co-founder of the Victoria Car Share Cooperative, an Honorary member of the Planning Institute of BC, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts.
