We are in the process of putting together a series of presentations on values-based approaches to living, working and relating. Watch this space as more are added.

Videos/RSA Animates:

  • Chaos Theory -- Values' Systems are the strange attractor that shape all human behaviour. A 60 minute documentary from BBC4 and a 10 minute video explanation from U-tube will help you understand chaos theory.

  • Who's Counting? -- Marilyn Waring on Sex, Lies and Global Economics. In this feature-length documentary, Marilyn Waring demystifies the language of economics by defining it as a value system in which all goods and activities are related only to their monetary value. As a result, unpaid work is unrecognized while activities that may be environmentally and socially detrimental are deemed productive. Waring maps out an alternative vision using a new currency.

  • The PostGrowth Economy -- Two videos and one animate which, in approximately 5 minutes each, put a strong case for why we must URGENTLY find a way to recreate the world's economies so they provide us with Properity Without Growth.

  • Prosperity Without Growth --  Tim Jackson, a professor of Sustainable Development and author of the book, "Prosperity Without Growth", argues it's time to re-think the very notion of growth and what it means to be genuinely prosperous.

  • David Suzuki's Legacy -- A lecture from David Suzuki which nicely complements the above lecture from Tim Jackson.

  • Susan Greenfield: The Future of the Brain - Baroness Susan Greenfield shows how modern technology is affecting the development of the human brain.

  • Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi: Creativity, fulfillment and flow  - Mihaly Czikszentmihalyi asks, "What makes a life worth living?" Noting that money cannot make us happy, he looks to those who find pleasure and lasting satisfaction in activities that bring about a state of "flow."

  • Sugata Mitra: Can kids teach themselves?  - Speaking at LIFT 2007, Sugata Mitra talks about his Hole in the Wall project. Young kids in this project figured out how to use a PC on their own -- and then taught other kids. He asks, what else can children teach themselves? This is a great demonstration of the principle of self-organising systems: when given the right resources and support of their values, magic happens.

  • We are educating people out of their creativity  - Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity. Why don't we get the best out of people?

  • Sir Ken Robinson: Bring on the revolution! | Video on  - In this poignant, funny follow-up to his fabled 2006 talk, Sir Ken Robinson makes the case for a radical shift from standardized schools to personalized learning -- creating conditions where kids' natural talents can flourish.

  • RSA Animate: Sir Ken Robinson - Creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson asks, "How do we make change happen in education and how do we make it last?"
