Unschooling the School System

Posted on Actualizado enn

As it has been becoming more evident in recent years that the school system is failing to provide children with a sound education, an increasing number of people are starting to look for alternatives to the traditional school system. Self-directed learning, homeschooling, open source education and unschooling are becoming more popular as both parents and educators are realizing that education is about so much more than memorizing redundant information. In this hangout we are speaking with Anna Brix Thomsen, a teacher who is implementing unschooling principles in her work.
You are welcome to post comments and questions for Anna in the comment section.

Basic Income as Basic Resources

Posted on Actualizado enn

How have we come to accept the division between access to income and access to resources? What have we taken for granted within not guaranteeing an income for every person? How is a basic income in fact a natural extension and conclusion to the application and safeguarding of Basic Human Rights?
Join us today to discuss these topics with Scott Santens, Freelance writer and Basic Income advocate based in the United States

Hidden Charges Exposed

Posted on

Most people think of “hidden charges” as the sneaky little fees hidden on a phone bill, or the extra service charges that a bank will bill out to a customer, or the inflated price of a vehicle after the dealership adds all of the additional items that were not part of the base price of the vehicle. Seldom, if ever, do we consider that there is more to “hidden charges” than the price we pay at the time of purchase. Let’s discuss more about that with Joe Kou in our Live Hangout today – you’re welcome to place any comments or questions throughout our live transmission.

Land Grabs and the Manufacturing of Poverty

Posted on

In this hangout we discuss some of the adverse effects of FDI (Foreign Direct Investment) when this is aimed at economic growth and disregards the well being of people. One of these phenomena is Land Grabbing, which disempowers the local population. With food security reaching an all time low and Food production an all time high – how is hunger manufactured and what are the solutions we can implement towards human oriented development? We’ll be discussing Land Grabbing around the world with Eleonora Gozzini.

Sustainability Notes from: http://threaddocumentary.com/
In 2009, the world used 3 trillion gallons of FRESH WATER to produce 60 billion kgs of fabric; it takes 700 gallons of FRESH WATER to make 1 cotton T-shirt.

20% of industrial fresh WATER POLLUTION comes from textile treatment and dyeing.

The loss, in dollars of materials, due to failure of companies and individuals in the US to RECYCLE, has been estimated at $30 billion per year.

1 trillion kilowatt hours are used every year by the global textile industry = 10% of total CARBON IMPACT.

TEXTILE WASTE occupies nearly 5% of all landfill space; The ave US citizen throws away 68 ins of clothing/yr — 1 million tons of textiles are thrown out every year
