Join us in answering this question:  What will it take to release large amounts of sustained human energy towards significant social (economic, political and cultural) change over the rest of this century?  and, of course, the companion question:   What are the practical implications for our personal, family, professional, movemental and community lives?


A bit of context:  The coming half century is destined to be full of shifts and changes.  The “world” that we and future generations will inhabit looks to be quite different than what we have seen around us in the last half century.  This is not news. Many social change initiatives have been and are working to prepare for our coming future, and much work lies ahead.  Many would say our collective human response so far has been agonizingly slow.  Hence the question:  What will it take . . .???  Each of us, I would wager, has our own answer(s) to this question floating around in our heads.  We use it as a filter for what is going on, what to welcome, what to be wary of both in ourselves and in the responses of others.


We asked this question of a group of 33 people on May 11, 2020.  They came up with good answers.   The 3 of us came up with our own answers in September.  Now we want to extend the conversation both because this seems an important question to talk about and because some good answers might help us to get beyond this nagging sense of anxiety and worry about our longer term future and see more clearly our path forward.
Now we are asking you to join us.  We are still in the pilot stage figuring out the best wording and the technology and all, and still wanting to get some broader participation — globally, age wise, and … and … 


We are going to focus on the first question in October, then turn to the question of implications in November.  
Can you join us?
