59: Eivind Hoff-Elimari – Politics and Policy for the Good Life

What if we don’t manage to stop a collapse of biodiversity? Then a windmill electric car will be of no value to, I guess, hurricanes against mass migration and so on. But if we’re doing what we know is a flourishing democracy, with equality and trust amongst people, that’ll mean everything for our ability to continue civilisation, as we know it under such conditions.

On this week’s episode Julian talks to Eivind Hoff-Elimari, local politician for the municipality of Nesodden in Norway. Eivind ‘s take on what politics is for is simple – it is for creating a good life. Not in the sense that we culturally understand a good life, but one that is good for everyone, people, places, plants, pets alike.
