Session Details

Young people bring a new way of looking at the world, at a time when the world itself may be facing the 6th mass extinction. How can we bring their adapted intelligence into the heart of power relations, to give Planet Earth – and human beings – the best chance of survival? This session will consist of four stages of inquiry into the distinctions between old and new ways of thinking and being: (1) What is a whole human being? (What is I?) (2) What kinds of structures can enable human potential? (What are We?) (3) How can we regenerate the planet (How can I impact the World?) (4) Imagining a new political system that links I-We-World. The session will be a mix of: - reflection, including what makes the old system dysfunctional - immersive, creative participation - sharing recent innovations in the field of reimagining democracy - practical steps from here.
