Gathering ’11 was an event that brought together leading thinkers, change-makers and collaborators from across Australia and around the world to explore and develop ideas on how to solve today’s most pressing social and environmental challenges, together.
In this series of podcasts I interview the attendees about their personal experiences of Gathering ’11, as a way of exploring these topics further, and of continuing the conversation.
In this episode I interview David Week. David is an architect, and Director of community development consultancy, Assai. He blogs about international development assistance on his blog: Architecture for Development. He lives with his family in Melbourne, Australia.
We talk about structure versus self-organisation; the narrative of a new economy; moving from ideas to ‘putting rubber on the road’, social entrepreneurship and the opportunities presented by generational change.
