About this Event
A one-hour session in which participants sign up to play the game, Flourish!
Flourish! Is a new game that allows participants to explore a different kind of local economy. One in which economic decisions support a post-growth society in which people can lead healthy, fulfilling lives – in which they can flourish.
This board game for 6 players and a host is designed to explore how players can develop ‘Sharetown’ to be a more equitable and participatory place. To do so they move away from purely financial measures of success to focus instead on how rich our communities are in 5 specific factors; agency, connection, trust, security and meaning. Players step out of their everyday roles, and into the character of decision-makers in a community to push for the projects that boost the values that their character cares most about.
We’ve designed Flourish! to encourage decision-makers to think about what the economy is for. To make it possible to see that the economy and economic decisions don’t exist as stand-alone elements, that instead they are formed by, and from, the factors in a community which build a community’s wellbeing.
Come along on 14th February and see what it takes to make your own Sharetown to Flourish!
