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 chat with Jean Russell. Jean is a facilitator, social ecosystem designer, and founder of the thrivability movement. She is currently writing a book: Breakthroughs for a World that Works. Jean lives in Bloomington, Illinois.
We talk about ‘thrivability’ and moving beyond sustainability; breakdown and breakthroughs, social ecosystem design, themes from Gathering ’11 and messy moments.
