Are our supposedly 'smart' tools actually enslaving us? Justus Schütze takes us on a journey of how our relationship with energy has evolved, from the pyramids of Egypt to caretaker robots. He argues that humans have become hyper-consumers who need to return to a group-based energy system. Relying on 3 main convivial tools, he believes we can shake off our 'consumer' labels and return to being 'makers' once again. Justus Schütze is one of the founders of ‘BUZZN - People Power’ and has been fighting for a new energy culture since 2007. BUZZN’s mission: enable people to purchase electricity produced by their friends and neighbors.
