Cultures of Sustainability


Just back from the Cultures of Sustainability event in Camden where staff and guess teachers from Schumacher College gathered at Cecil Sharp House to discuss issues relating to sustainable living.

This photo shows Satish Kumar, who chaired the afternoon, guests Gustavo Esteva and David Orr, and lecturer Brian Goodwin. Also participating were Karen Blincoe the college’s director, and Vandana Shiva.

Satish chaired with tremendous authority: “Can you get to your question, please?”.

I was going to write up some of my notes here but my mind is skipping all over the place and there is an organic cabbage in the kitchen that needs some imaginative attention. So I’ll jus mention the stool with which Satish summed up the day; it has three legs:

  • Ecology
  • Economy
  • Equity
