Join us for a two-hour pressure-cooker session with philosopher and social entrepreneur Thieu Besselink of FreedomLab, a research lab and think tank investigating social change. Besselink will facilitate an active open-space session on how the global can be embedded in the local, and whether this will lead to multiple modernities. Have you been struggling with urban complexities, authority, embedded technology, shifting values, and new design agendas for new social ecologies … or not? Join us as we discuss new “teleologenic” learning models and how to develop an integral change approach that combines personal, social, and global systems.
