Playing for Team Human today, designer, activist, academic, and author of Lo-Tek, Design by Radical Indigenism, Julia Watson.
Watson discusses how we can respond to climate change by utilizing millennia-old knowledge about how we can live in symbiosis with nature through lo-tek radical design. What are the cultural preconditions required to implement a living bridge and other indigenous technologies ? How can western society better create technology through the elements in our surrounding environment?
In his opening monologue, Rushkoff explains how progress became associated with colonialism and advocates for us to retrieve circular and advanced mechanisms for human and interspecies flourishing.
