Event description


Do you want to help save the world?

Do the world's systemic problems feel overwhelmingly big & complicated?

Has it been hard to find a way to invest your existing interests and skillsets to contribute to solving those systemic problems with your available resources?

Are you tired of oppression?

Facilitating Thriving is a group of everyday people who want to create an independent, cooperative ecosystem & Solidarity Economy that can support & empower Philadelphia's collective liberation from capitalist oppression.

Save the World Sundays is our year-long Unconference to define our collective needs to be liberated from exploitation, addressing the realities of the systemic problems we face in liberating ourselves, & researching practical solutions with the existing resources in our own communities. We define success as a core group of participants developing solidarity among existing organizations & individuals, envisioning practical alternatives to our current systems of oppresion & planning an equitable, ethical solidarity economy that can provide:

  • Thriving livelihoods

  • Universal Basic Provisions

  • Sovereign autonomy

Skills of all natures & from every discipline are needed in this collective effort & all participants are given the opportunity to develop and invest their existing skills and passions in community with others. Each session will be held in an community space accessible to registered participants, with remote participation being an integral component of each one.

Come & Go as you need, participate silently from home through collaborative document development, or add your thoughts after the sessions!
