128. Elin Bergman - Circular economy, where we are in this moment. A hopeful outlook.
Elin Bergman was called the circularity queen of Sweden in a podcast a title that stuck. Elin and I get to lean in to the challenging questions of how we become Circular. This is a conversation of different perspectives and starting points and Elins view and optimism is inspiring. We speak of plastics as a tool in our toolbox, the Ellen MacArthur foundation work on technical and organic cycles in circularity and how we can think about solutions in different spheres, we speak of course about the connection between the inner and outer - when we need something, how do we know what we need? And the importance of role models where Elin is most certainly one of the more inspirational and forceful examples of this. Here are some links and resources mentioned in the episode: Cradlenet, Nordic circular hotspot, Nordic circular arena, Ellen MacArthur Foundation's Youtube. We also talk about the Circular Gap report that had not yet come out at the time of the recording for this episode... Elin was right we are between Norway and the Netherlands with 3.4 % circularity - significantly less than we hoped for. The Netherlands are up to >22% in this final report - there are ways to go!

124. Elizabeth Debold and Thomas Steininger: Emergent Dialogue and its potential for the meaning crisis
Elizabeth is a developmental psychologist and Thomas is a philosopher who have been engaged in and developed the Bohmian dialogue and developed the practice of Emergent Dialogue over the past 25+ years. The practice is one of speaking when spoken through, it aspires to let us connect to the inter subjective field or that which is bigger than us. I have personally been in their courses and can attest to the power and felt meaningfulness of this practise. The conversation hovers around the topic of Emergent Dialogue and what it is, as well as the potential it holds to address the meaning crisis which some argue is a core root to our current global predicament. If you want to connect with Thomas and Elizabeth you can visit: One world in dialogue to find out more about Emergent Dialogue and engage.

116. RCO: What is the Regenerative Community Organism?
This is the start of a mini-series of shorter episodes we will post on the channel. They detail the organisational structure called the RCO. It is an exploration into more regenerative organisational forms. It is the result of some 18 months of thinking. The structure is purpose first, it is communal and it has a focus on value distribution and building agency for those participating in the company. The RCO fundamentally sees the limited company as a useful tool for building business and take into account that the company progress through its lifecycle with different needs. What might initially be well served by being strongly driven by a few individuals will over time, if it's successful, be better served if thought about as a commons that is governed by all its stake holders. This recording is from a webinar that Nils and Amit gave on the RCO. The presentation given during the webinar is available here. If you want to get in touch directly because of curiosity, ideas, to start your own or join in reach out to Amit or Nils.
