The Goal

Session 1 of The Great Re-Think

with Colin Tudge and special guest Andrew Fellows

Saturday April 17
10:00am BST  |  11:00am CEST

All sessions are live, recordings will be available for any sessions you can not attend.

First we need to decide what we want to achieve—which Colin suggests should be to create:

 Convivial societies—with personal fulfilment! —within a flourishing biosphere

Governments rarely spell out properly what they are actually trying to achieve. They rely on slogansas in ‘Make America Great Again’ or ‘Take Back Control.’

We need to achieve the necessary turn-around not merely by Reform, or by out-and-out Revolutionbut by Renaissancere-birth: creating the world we want to see in situ, and leaving what we don’t need to wither on the vine.

But powers-that-bean oligarchy of governments, corporates, financiers, and their selected intellectual advisersare not going to do what’s needed. In large part they are leading us in the opposite direction. So we—people at largeneed to make the Renaissance happen for ourselves.

Always we need to be guided by the twin principles of morality (what is it right to do?) and of ecology (what is necessary and what is possible?). Both are rooted in the much neglected discipline of metaphysics. Good science is vital but commensurately we need to restore the sense of the sacred. ‘Re-enchantment’ is required.

** All is ripe for discussion. Most basically: does everyone agree with the stated goal? And is it really possible to take care of humanity and our fellow creatures? (Yes, is the answer, but only with truly radical change—brought about by people at large.)

Andrew Fellows is a Jungian Analyst, Program Director and Training Analyst at ISAP Zurich, independent researcher and author, and deep ecologist. He holds a Doctorate in Applied Physics, and enjoyed two decades of international engagement with renewable energy, sustainable development and environmental policy before moving to Switzerland.

He is currently extending Jungian Psychology with Gaia theory, dual-aspect monism and deep ecology to address global environmental problems.

His first book, Gaia, Psyche and Deep Ecology: Navigating Climate Change in the Anthropocene was joint winner of the Scientific & Medical Network 2019 Book Prize. Andrew lives over three thousand feet above sea level in rural Switzerland without a car.
