Global unrest, rapid climate change, mass unemployment, outdated governance structures.Everyone at the centre says they want innovation, but after reviewing thousands of pages of ethnographic data, first hand accounts of HOW people are realising these innovative responses tosystemic crises and instability, we found that the actors you would expect to be there, arenowhere to be seen. Why is that? We’ll get to that later. But first, a microscope on some of thenodes in the Edgeryders community.
