TOWARDS A SUSTAINABLE LOCAL ECONOMY

Recently, we have seen the demise of the outsourcing mogul Carillion under a £1.5bn debt pile with a possible loss of up to 20,000 jobs in the UK. This was followed 2 weeks later by profit warnings of another outsourcing giant, Capita, whose share value plummeted by nearly 50%, wiping £1.5bn of its stock market value. The process of outsourcing public services started under the Thatcher years, but accelerated under the Blair-Brown years with the private/public financing initiatives. It received…See More

Visual Communication to influence behavioral change towards sustainability is my thing.

I believe in building systemic change to the current paradigm through bottom-up change, at a grassroots level as well as top down. I believing in reinventing not what we do, but how we do it is fundamental, and educating effectively through collective participation and skill sharing is key to securing a future for generations to come.

I think that London or Hackney has a fantastic opportunity right now to be a leader of change, by setting a new narrative of how we want to do business in the world along with everything else...
