Who we are
We are an independent group of citizens from different parts of the world with different cultural and professional backgrounds. We are artists, philosopers, designers, web specialists and economists.

Why we are doing this
What unites us is that we are concerned about the state and development of our beautiful planet. The aim of this project is to collect and expose ideas that can contribute to find opportunities and solutions for the common good.

Age of Economics
In 2020 we started a web based project and asked 8 fundamental questions about economics and the capitalist civilization to a group of diverse global thinkers. 53 weeks, 53 interviews. In the second season we continue this project with a new series of interviews focused on economics and ecology.
