It was really great developing an interview series on time and community development as part of the Temporal Belongings project, and so when Alex Buchanan and I were applying for the Sustaining Time project we decided to keep the series going with a new set of interviews focusing on the role of time and sustainable economies. Seven interviews were conducted with a range of people involved in thinking economies differently, including Katherine Gibson (Community Economies Collective), Anna Coote (nef), Sam Alexander (Simplicity Institute) and more.
As usual it's taken me a quite to getting around to editing and publishing them, but I'm happy to say that the first interview in the series is now hot off the inDesign press. I talk with Andy Goldring, the CEO of the Permaculture Association about the link between permaculture, sustainable economies and time. He makes the case for why permaculture practitioners should move towards becoming economists. He also gives a inspiring account of how to work for the long term, developing more poetic ways of living, valuing play and why we need to take back the calendar.
