We live in turbulent times where confusion, fake news, mass manipulation, invasion of privacy, wildly unstable economies and rogue states with pantomime villains for leaders have become normal. Chronic anxiety, fear and uncertainty have created extremes of disconnection in our society and in ourselves. For many, even a telephone conversation with a friend seems too intimate, the distance and safety of messaging and posting is another new normal.
In the age of the algorithm and artificial intelligence, the mechanised thinking that began in the 17th century and has dominated human society for the last three hundred years, is being automated at a rate and on a scale that is beyond our imagination and potentially beyond our control. Our already fragile connection to ourselves, each other and the world continues to be strained by the separation and sorting of the world that technology imposes.
The complexity of modern systems cannot be understood by separating issues into neat boxes and diagrams. We need a different worldview to guide us in this new world of continuous change and intimately connected systems that reach around the globe.
Martin Kalungu-Banda and Gelong Thupten together with a panel of experts will share their insights and methods for shifting from a sense of disconnection to a place of reconnection and guide us in belonging to a world of continuous change and intimately connected systems that reach around the globe.
