Countless studies have shown that a sense of community is one of the most important factors leading to happiness, fulfillment and the sense of a life well lived, no matter what the culture.

But what do we mean by community? It seems that we’ve completely lost its meaning, for nowadays we’re constantly hearing of absurdities such as the banking community, the sporting community and the international community?!!

Karl Williams, our presenter, thinks he knows quite a bit about fostering community – he’s downshifted years ago from chartered accounting to humble but satisfying work in local community and neighbourhood houses. He’s also stayed and worked on around 30 “intentional communities” around the world.

Strange as it may appear, there’s a strong connection between the type of economic system in place and our personal sense of community. Karl is also a past president of Prosper Australia and a former editor of Progress.

All welcome, gold coin donation, light supper provided.
