Slow An Adaptive Response To Fast says
enkel in collaboration with Centre for Australian Foresight and Perth Oz Foresight Café continue to explore multi-disciplinary themes with a futures / foresight lens. After Transition, Simplicity and Liminality we'll now look at Slow. A presentation by Slow Movement aficionado and proponent Claire Vanderplank, will be followed by a discussion about this concept (and way of life!).

Claire is now looking at the Slow Movement as an adaptive response to a 'Fast' culture and time-compressed society. She's interested in it because the principles Slow encourages us to live by, hold a promise of something incredibly profound. We are in a time of transition between a worldview of separation to one of interconnectedness.

The meta-narrative of separation has lost its ideological core. Slow appears to be one of the complex of responses arising from the gap between stories, helping to steward us to living from worldview of interconnectedness.

In the talk Claire will make all this big picture stuff practical - She will describe her framework of Slow principles and conclude with some implications/ recommendations for changemakers.

Claire is currently undertaking PhD research with the thesis title 'The Slow Movement and the Rediscovery of the Ecological Self'.
