Question: “How do we create the natural conditions for abundant energy flow that empower, strengthen and enable myself and those in my community?"
Functions and Experiences: Within the Marketplace, participants learn the history of transacting valuable goods and services in symbolic and literal ways. The story is about evolution, growth, energy and power. Learners who spend time in The Marketplace understand how solar (and other forms) energy help users transition from fossil fuels and other non-renewable resources.Participants also journey through the history of money, from its roots in barter and indigenous trade.
The Marketplace in Ma-I will be located in the Warrior's Temple located in between the Orange and Yellow Zone. We will be building a set of small shops which children and parents can visit to conduct trades that happen in the Village Game processes.
