'Re-thinking Progress' explores how through a change in perspective we can re-design the way our economy works. It suggest that we move from our current liner economic structure based on take, make, and dispose to a cirular economy where we build resource capital so that today's goods become tomorrow's resources and we licence rather than own goods. Such a system would be modelled on the natural world in which the concept of waste is foreign.
Re-Thinking Progress introduces a big idea - buildiong a restorative economy in which the biological cycle becomes a model for our technical cycle. The video serves to introduce students to the concept but they and the teacher must then examine its implications at the socio-economic level. Such an examination touches upon a number of curriculum areas.
