Greg Watson delivered one of the 39th Annual E. F. Schumacher Lectures on Sunday October 27, 2019. Greg Watson is Director of Policy and Systems Design at the Schumacher Center for a New Economics. His work currently focuses on community food systems and the dynamics between local and geo-economic systems.
As a young man of color, Greg Watson faced rebuke by his peers for championing environmental issues, broadly seen as the purview of privilege. Watson understood that clean air, fresh water, healthy soil, and good food are a necessary right for all. He went on to work in both the public and private spheres to create community food systems, renewable energy initiatives, and citizen-designed development programs. Influenced by the work of R. Buckminster Fuller, his lecture focuses on Fuller’s World GameTM and the Game’s potential to inform a fair allocation of Earth’s resources in a time of climate crisis.
The talks took place at Saint James Place in Great Barrington, Massachusetts
