Accountants have an immense possibility to save the world, if they begin to change their language from one of ac’count’ing to one of accountability. This workshop aims to explore the social constructivist nature of accounting and the pervasive role its language plays in our everyday lives. We will begin to interactively reimagine our interaction with money, exploring alternative ways for individuals to participate in the economy. Permaculture ethics and design principles will guide this exploration to practical solutions that can act as forces for change within local economies. The third permaculture ethic – fair share – facilitates the satisfaction of a fundamental human need – that of security. We will embark on a journey of self-discovery by drawing on prior experience of money, accounting, economics, banking and finance in order to make explicit working ideas which can facilitate a shift from a false sense of security based on money to a more resilient, genuine form of security that is based on social relations and interactions.
