Building Witness This space was formerly called “Worldbuilding Academy”. It hosts the meta-level discussion about the project of building Witness: how we should organize and so on. There is another category, Witnesspedia, that contains the Witnesspedia entries themselves and the discussions around individual entries. Use it to propose organizational changes, meetups, readings, funding opportunities and so on. Autarky Lab A place to develop and learn about autarky solutions: technologies, organization techniques and best practices that enable self-sufficient living on the long term. Here, autarky is comprehensive self-supply and self-governance in small social units. It’s the maker’s way of making a living, a solution for political problems with non-political means. It’s how we fix precarious living, excessive consumption, bullshit jobs and politics alike. Solutions documented here are esp. relevant for...

Scifi Economics Economists, politicians and business leaders, it seems, have given up on trying to imagine completely different economic systems. But we have not. And neither has a small group of brainy, visionary science fiction authors. We organize a meeting of minds where we can learn from each other what future economies might look like. And maybe even how we can help them being born. Authors discussed include Cory Doctorow (peer production and abundance in Walkaway), Bruce Sterling (nomads + cheap open... Climate Work For everyone: Post here stories of climate change prevention / adaptation, ecosystem restoration etc… This would be also the place for low-impact living, mobility and infrastructure: airships, houseboats, and so on. Tell us about yourself and your work and ideas, and let’s see what we can do together. For Edgeryders: This is also the public space for the climate change related projects in our company, including: Climate Positive. EIT Climate-KIC started a project called Climate Positive, in...
