Civil Society Australia

Faith, Community and the New Economy: Jewish, Christian and Muslim Collaboration in Communal Enterprise and MutualitySlide2

Multi-faith collaborative venture in constructing communal enterprise and mutuality as alternative to dominant paradigm of liberal individualism

National in scope, with faith communities, entrepreneurs, community leadersA plethora of forms of mutuality and enterprises generated by these faith traditions, past & present

Civil Society AustraliaSlide3

Key concepts:

Communal life and enterprise as more organic and holistic than ‘community’ in secular contextsMutuality as interdependence in living and working, relational rather than transactionalJewish, Christian and Muslim traditions as derivatives of common Abrahamic faith, communal life & mutuality integral to each

Civil Society AustraliaSlide4

Two key questions:

Is a faith context or sense of the transcendent necessary for deep communal life and mutuality? (esp in societies ravaged by liberal individualism and secular materialism)Does the New Economy require a vibrant faith-based communal life and mutuality?

Civil Society AustraliaSlide5

Only two options for a deep communal life and mutuality:

Eco-spirituality and expectation of climate-driven apocalypseFaith traditions of Judaism, Christianity and IslamBoth are necessary, recognition and collaboration

Civil Society AustraliaSlide6

Vision for faith-based ecosystem:

10% market share of Aus popn (2.5m)Face-to-face hubs (participating synagogues, churches, mosques)Online collaborative platform (1m participants)45-45-10 Rule (45% mutuality, 45% business, 10% politics)
