Beautiful Solutions: Call for Submissions
The collective that brought you Beautiful Trouble: A Toolbox for Revolution is teaming up with Rachel Plattus and Eli Feghali of the New Economy Coalition to assemble a toolbox for building a just and livable future. Beautiful Solutions: A Toolbox for the Future will adapt the modular, interconnected structure of Beautiful Trouble, as well as its successful model of movement-wide collaboration. If you’re involved in building alternatives anywhere in the world, we want to hear from you.
We are seeking pitches for short, focused entries (ranging from 200 to 1000 words) on the following:
- successful and instructive case studies (Boulder, CO energy municipalization, Belo Horizonte participatory budgeting, etc.)
- solutions-focused tactics (worker co-ops, social wage, Tobin tax, full employment programs, open-source design, etc), and
- key theoretical concepts for guiding the construction of alternatives (the Commons, solidarity economics, usufruct, etc.).
Sounds very interesting!
