Image of the Future Episode One: Curiosity > Consumption

The Institute for Everyday Democracy is a place to exchange ideas, join in discussions, and generate a body of thought about how we participate in our democracy. Through our Image of the Future podcast, we host conversations that collectively explore ideas that prepare us for the future. Such a collective exercise is not about what we like or don’t like, nor is it about the “me” or “mine.” It is a much deeper and courageous exploration of what ought to happen.

Our first podcast is with Mark Okasaki, the Executive Director of Neighborhood House. In his conversation with Milenko, Mark draws upon his work with refugees and immigrant populations to look toward a more open and hopeful future, a society where we waste less resources and ask more questions. Listen in and find out just what it is that Mark believes will save us.
