New HEAD Talks video release: Speed, Pace and Acceleration

Submitted by robertgnewell on 9 September 2013

We have just released a new video on HEAD Talks.

Created through a partnership between the Community Research Connections program and students of Royal Roads University's Professional Communications program, Speed, Pace and Acceleration examines how modern technologies have affected the speed and pace of our lifestyles. The video complements CRC's research on the concept of 'de-growth', i.e., exploring alternatives to traditional paradigm of constant economic growth, as it spurs us to think about the meanings of progress and growth in the context of modern day society. Our societies continually experience technological and economic growth, but what does this mean in terms of our well-being as people and communities? What does it truly mean to 'progress' and to 'grow'?
