Hi, I’m Jason. I live in London, UK, and work in digital technology. I helped to develop this website and I am a moderator on the forum. My hope is that it will serve to connect people interested in the Participatory Economy economic vision.
I was first introduced to a Participatory Economy and Participatory Society theory through the independent media website ZNet over 15 years ago. A long time ago! I’ve found it to be the most convincing and comprehensive systemic alternative to capitalism I’ve come across, and believe that popularising vision and developing long-term strategy are important ingredients for informing our activism today.
Over the years, I’ve been involved in various past advocacy projects around the vision, including Project for a Participatory Society UK and the International Organisation for a Participatory Society, through which I’ve given talks and organised speaking events for Michael Albert and Robin Hahnel, the creators of the model. I’m also involved with environmental activism, worker co-operatives and a member of the Labour Party.
Get in touch with me if you are also interested in developing ideas for games and tools that use technology to promote the Participatory Economy model. I’m currently working on an idea for a participatory planning app.
