    How can we actively imagine and work towards a more liveable ‘post-Covid’ future, even as we confront the scale of global challenges and navigate an increasingly accelerated and commodified higher education (HE) system? This chapter sets out how the ten co-authors and a group of twelve students/alumni explored this question together over a period of about twelve months at Manchester Metropolitan University Business School in the UK. Via a loosely structured, experimental, emergent and creative process of cooperative inquiry, we came together to develop a shared understanding of what matters to us and how, in turn, these matters of concern (Sayer, 2011) help guide our engagement with the natural and social worlds around us. The chapter focuses on two aspects of this shared experience.
