KV helped organise and participated in the Alternative Economies Vikalp Sangam (AEVS, 2-5 January 2020), primarily put together by a group based in Auroville, Tamil Nadu. Nearly 100 people participated in this 4 day gathering, with plenty of discussion, group exercises, a public mela, and other methods, to share economic initiatives that put people and environment at the core rather than destroying them as the currently dominant ‘developmentalist’ economy does. This gathering was part of the ongoing series of Vikalp Sangams (alternative confluences) that KV is helping to coordinate (see www.vikalpsangam.org). Reports and photos from the AEVS will be posted shortly
