Do you believe in the importance of leisure, play and rest at this time of multiple crises? Do you think our collective devotion to work is misplaced and long for an alternative?

Launching on the 27th October as a weekly 'Huddle', the aim is to create "a peer group experiment in leisure, play and rest as the source of personal and societal transformation."

"Leisure is often reduced to the down-time we must have for the purpose of further work, whereas work is seen as the real point of existence. In this learning journey we will question and challenge that, through doing more of what brings us joy and makes us feel alive. We will discover the potential that lies in a society of more leisure. Together we will prototype ‘the good life’."
