Gathering ’11: To Build Better Futures, 11-13 June 2011, Melbourne Australia

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” ~ Bucky Fuller

Gathering ’11 brings together leading thinkers, change-makers and collaborators from across Australia and around the world to explore what’s possible, and develop ideas on how we can best solve today’s most pressing social and environmental challenges, together.

Exploring big questions and bigger opportunities

How might we tap into the potential of emerging technologies, networks, and systems to co-create a thrivable new world?

Where are the opportunities – and what do we need – to lay the foundations for a new economy, a cleaner environment, resilient communities, and a happier planet?

What can we all do to build better futures?

Co-creating socially innovative solutions

Gathering ’11 will provide a space and experience that supports the emergence of socially innovative and transformative ideas. Using the World Café process, Open Space Technology and drawing from the methodology of Improv, Presencing and Theory U,  we have collaboratively developed a program to transform inspiration into action with positive social impact.

At Gathering ’11 you will:

  • experience new approaches to idea generation and problem solving;
  • learn how to engage and mobilise your friends, your community and your organisation around a cause;
  • discover models for business that are having a positive social impact and thriving in challenging economic times;
  • find out how you can use technology and social media to make a real difference;
  • hear how small moves, smartly made, can set big things in motion; and
  • develop ideas and cocreate opportunities for world-changing projects and game-changing enterprises.

Why you should join us…

If you’re wanting to live a life, or start a business, or bring people together in ways that make a real difference, than you should join us at Gathering ‘11.

We’ve created a program to support the emergence of radical innovation and creativity with the intention to inspire implementable ideas that can effect real change and build foundations for better futures. Come to Gathering ‘11 to learn how you can do things like:

  • Bring your community together to address climate change and ensure low-carbon, secure energy futures.
  • Start your own enterprise that has a positive social impact and helps those in need.
  • Build your own business that thrives from providing goods and services with real meaning.
  • Develop your own systems that enable a shift in the way that people buy, consume and lessen their impact on our precious planet.
  • Help your organisation shift from being just a service provider, to one that connects people who want help with people that need it.
  • Design your own online platform for open participation to facilitate creative problem solving for today’s big challenges.
  • Make a living and a difference by being creative and sharing your passion.

Join us at Gathering ’11 to share, learn, grow and build. Come plant the seeds for a community of practice with other visionaries, though-leaders and change-makers from across Australia and around the world – taking steps toward better futures for all, together.

Bring your imagination, creativity, passion and insights and be prepared for something amazing!

Connected: The Film – Melbourne sneak preview, 8 September 2011

What does it mean to be living in a hyperconnected world? How is it changing the way we communicate, relate, work and consume – and what impact is this having on our wellbeing, and that of the planet around us? These are the questions asked and explored in one of 2011′s most eagerly awaited films – Connected.

Join us, and our three special guest panelists – leading thinkers in communications, technology, community and the environment - for this exciting Gathering event. It is a sneak preview of the film described by James Greenberg as,

A personal yet universal story about the Internet Age…Connected is a highly energized romp through a myriad of ideas about where the human race is headed.

Afterward, connect with other Melbourne change-makers and discover what great projects and initiatives are laying foundations for us to build better futures for all, together.

We’re also planning to have drinks and snacks available on the night from a couple of top Melbourne food and beverage social entreprises – which may include popcorn. ;)

Presented by Gathering ’11 host David Hood, with thanks to the AMPlify Festival and RMIT SEEDS, this event is a fundraiser for Gathering ’11 and future Gathering events and programs.

With wonderful heart and an impressive sense of scale, Tiffany Shlain’s vibrant and insightful documentary, Connected, explores the visible and invisible connections linking major issues of our time—the environment, consumption, population growth, technology, human rights, the global economy—while searching for her place in the world during a transformative time in her life.

Employing a splendidly imaginative combination of animation and archival footage, plus several surprises, Shlain constructs a chronological tour of Western modernization through the work of her late father, Leonard Shlain, a surgeon and best-selling author of Art and Physics and The Alphabet Versus the Goddess. With humor and irony, the Shlain family life merges with philosophy to create both a personal portrait and a proposal for ways we can move forward as a civilization.

Connected illuminates the beauty and tragedy of human endeavor while boldly championing the importance of personal connectedness for understanding and coping with today’s global conditions.

“Tiffany Shlain demonstrates, with lyrical simplicity, our interdependence on one another and the interconnectedness of humanity with all life on earth. With a tightly synchronized dance between her powerful images and insightful words — with humor, and with a creativity all her own, Tiffany illuminates the issues that affect us all — including environmental degradation, dizzying technological innovation and population growth — and helps us to understand our inter-relationship with the world in a way that is both freeing and inspiring. Throughout, she also presents and honors the deep wisdom of her late father, Leonard Shlain, reminding us of the deepest connections that breathe meaning into life.” – Al Gore

“A personal yet universal story about the Internet Age…Connected is a highly energized romp through a myriad of ideas about where the human race is headed.” – James Greenberg, The Hollywood Reporter

Collecting and sharing: your #Gathering11 posts, tweets, pics and more

Dear Gathering ’11 friends,

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there were a collaborative crowdsourced web 2.0 Gathering ’11 scrapbook we can all contribute to?

Fear not, plans are underway! It will be an easy and fun reference for everything that is Gathering ’11 including preparations, the event itself, reflections, effects, and next steps.

The content will be pulled from the comment section of this blog post.

*** Please make a contribution by mid-September in order to be SURE to be included. ***

Share any and all of the following (directly, with a link, or with embed code):

  • Reflections large and small, notes, lessons learned, connections made – basically, text of any kind
  • Pictures & artwork
  • Videos & audio recordings
  • Anything else you can think of!

The process for creating this resource is coming together in real-time. This blog post is being updated as that process is defined and as the project moves forward. For example, it will likely be helpful to tag related online content with “Gathering11″ (please do, along with any other tags that come to mind). And it may also be helpful to propose additional tags to help with the sorting process. Don’t hesitate to use the comment section to ask questions or share suggestions about those or any other aspect of this project.

On behalf of everyone who will learn from your contributions (and that’s a whole lot of people), thank you. There’s a great deal of listening and learning ahead, so let the collecting continue!

* If you’d like to join the team putting this together, go to http://bit.ly/Gatherings11, reach the “How to use this document” section, and add your name to the “Anthology Team” section.

At #Gathering11 a Thrivable World Emerges

Launched at Gathering ’11, featuring Jean Russell: Thrivable from alan rosenblith.

Transcript

Introduction

Jean Russell, Founder of Thrivable

There’s all this talk about breakdown when actually there’s also a breakthrough happening at the same time. It’s a thrivable world that emerges even as this old industrial order collapses. We’re making a world that works; that promises for more people better opportunities; and creates better futures for individuals, communities, organizations, and our whole collective. That old order? It’s destabilizing and there’s more and more uncertainty. We don’t really know what to do. All this stuff is happening at faster and faster rates but it’s also connecting people, ideas, and actions. We play in new possibilities, and that makes room for serendipity. Something else is emerging: a thrivable world.

From Stories to Action

The story that we’re telling ourselves? It’s really crucial. What we tell, the stories that we tell about ourselves, they determine the actions that we think work, what we think is possible. If we tell ourselves stories about breakdown, we start to limit what we think might be possible. What happens when we say, “What’s the future that we want to create? How can we co-create that?” and then open our possibilities to make that happen? The stories of collapse aren’t making this new world. We have to speak our thriving into being and create stories of this emerging world.

The Human Mind: Our Social Wiring

There are several key aspects of this emerging world. The first one I want to talk about is: how do our brains really work? Who are we? There’s a whole bunch of brain science showing up to tell us what we’re motivated by, what makes us happy. It turns out we’re actually predictably irrational instead of that rational, self-interested actor that economics tells us we are. And we’re easily nudged and swayed to do different things. This is really self-empowering for us because it brings an element of self-awareness to how humans work that enables something new to emerge. We need to think of ourselves as not so much wired for self-interest – which is true, we are that – but we are also wired to connect and share.

Marcia Shenk, Business Anthropologist: A neuroscientist would say to you, “The human brain is wired, organized, completely triggered for sociality.” What they mean by that is that a little force we call emotions keeps us oriented to other people and what we are doing with other people. As the research gets richer and deeper – it’s happening right now as we’re speaking – they’re discovering, for example, that one of the major pleasure centers in the brain (as powerful as sex and chocolate) is the pleasure that comes from contributing to another human being.

Network Organisms: The Me/We Dynamic

Another key aspect of the thrivable world that is emerging right now is the shift in group dynamics, or our social structures. We’ve come through a period where we’ve treated those things in a very mechanistic fashion. There are pyramidal structures. Leaders are dictating orders to the people below. We’re shifting to an open network or an open culture in which people organically come together. They serve each others’ needs and their own. They produce things together. This is really exciting. We see things like Wikipedia, and we have new group processes like wikis. I call this the great rebalancing of the “me/we dynamic.” The way that we handle this is really crucial to being able to increase network health and individual health in a way that’s going to open up more and more possibilities for a thrivable world.

Rachel Botsman, Author and Social Innovator: I actually think this is driven by self-interest, and that sharing is the new self-interest. What’s happening is we’re actually finding this common ground where self-interest can meet collective-interest. It’s utopian to believe that most of the world are going to put collective-interest before self-interest. It’s just not the way we’re wired. It’s ok if people go into these things because they’re better – they’re more convenient, they’re offering more choice, they can make money, they can save money — but it benefits the whole. That actually becomes a sustainable economy.

Ward Cunningham, Inventor of the Wiki: A collaboration among possibly strangers that, self organized, produces something of surprising value… Some people might say, “We’re going to have a meeting in real space. This is going to be a wiki-style meeting. We’re going to plan what we’re going to do on the day we meet with the people that we have.” And they turn out to be very good. What they’re really saying is, “We bring something and we know we do. We’re willing to share. We’ll dynamically organize. We’ll organize our efforts by paying attention to each others’ needs, and [by] bringing hope but not necessarily too many preconceived notions about where this is heading. And at the end of the day we’ll have something we can be proud of.

Metrics Matter: Feedback for Behavior Change

So the next key aspect of creating this thrivable world is about seeing ourselves: how do we get the information that we need in order to adjust the behaviors that we’ve got? We’ve got to be able to know where we are. There are all of these breakthroughs in data visualization, and metrics and feedback loops, that allow us to know what we’re doing. We’ve moved away from GDP and measures of the economy towards Gross National Happiness. And we’re even creating games that give us immediate feedback so that we can adjust our behaviors. That opens up room for us to change our course and create the thrivable world we want.

Kevin Kelly, Founding Editor, Wired Magazine: The main event happening is that we’re becoming more pluralistic in how money is made. There’s no longer a single business model for whatever industry. There are multiple business models. Mom and pop stores will never go away – they’ll remain as a way to make money – but every other possible way of running a business is still out there. We’re inventing newer and newer ways of having a business. When we look to the future, what we want to imagine is not that there’s a single way of doing it but that we’re going to continue to increase the variety of ways of having and doing a business. Increasing the variety of ways in which the economy is organized. Increasing the variety of ways in which things are monetized. Increasing  the variety of ways in which things are demonetized. All those things are happening. I think that gives us great hope and we should look forward to that, because its means there are more possibilities for more choice and freedom for all of us.

In Sum

Together, we can create a great world that works. First we have to tell ourselves stories about a  world that we want. Stories of possibility. Then we have to have faith in how people are connected. We’re wired to be empathic and altruistic. We want to care and share. Next, give people an opportunity to be a contribution to something larger than themselves. Form network organisms of purpose. Lastly, design data visualization and metrics and feedback loops so we can see themselves. Have fun in that process. Invite play. Make games. Together, we can co-create a world that works.

John Hagel – Gathering ’11: an opportunity to make meaningful change

Jean Russell interviews opening speaker, John Hagel, on “the power of pull” and the opportunity to make meaningful change at Gathering ’11.

Jean: Hi John, Thank you for sharing with me today. I know we are both excited about Gathering ’11, but I am curious what is the attraction for you? What do you think is powerful about this event?

John: Gathering ’11 is a promising opportunity to mobilize people for meaningful change. The people attending are from a variety of edges. That in itself makes it very promising. Any of the people attending individually are incredibly talented and interesting. But the power is in the cocktail – the mixture of experiences, skill sets and perspectives coming together. It ensures that we will have some very creative ideas emerging regarding both what can be done and how to do it.

Jean: So part of the lure is the mixture of different people? I certainly agree the cocktail is interesting. I wrote about that in my gathering people post. Is that enough? What will  take the different edges gathered here and make something larger than the sum of the parts?

John: The challenge is not diversity, but convergence. We will be meeting only for a short time. If the meeting is to become a catalyst for sustained engagement, rather than just an interesting set of conversations that will quickly blur in our memories, we will need to make progress on two fronts while we are together:

  • A shared definition of the problem and long-term view of the opportunity
  • Agreement on 2-3 short-term initiatives that have the greatest potential to accelerate our movement towards the opportunity and that we can mobilize around with measurable milestones

Jean: Time is such an interesting function of the story we are telling ourselves John. If we think too short term, we won’t steer our collective toward a long term horizon that matters. And our time together is short. What can we do to make the most of it? And what do you think the potential is here?

John: I am a big believer that small moves smartly made can set big things in motion.  A small gathering in Melbourne, Australia has the potential to change the world. The trick is to find the smart moves that have the potential to build rapidly and amplify impact. From my work, I would offer these suggestions regarding “smartness”:

  • Rather than confronting the problems head on, find promising edges – peripheral areas that are likely to be more risk taking and receptive to fundamentally different ways of doing things
  • Proceed along two horizons simultaneously – fleshing out a longer-term view of the opportunity and pursuing a limited number of high potential short-term initiatives on the targeted edges
  • Aggressively seek leverage by reaching out to others through scalable platforms and draw them to the relevant edges
  • Start with relatively low investment initiatives that can quickly generate impact – this helps to build credibility and conviction, as well as generating greater insight about both the long-term problem and opportunity
  • Foster productive friction – identify problems that require novel approaches to solve and then encourage debate and confrontation of opposing ideas in an effort to draw out creative new ideas
  • Set aside time to regularly review and reflect on the impact achieved and to recognize those who made the highest impact contributions

Over the years, I have developed an instinct and intuition about initiatives that have the potential for impact. I have a strong sense that Gathering ’11 could be one of those platforms for change that people look back on and marvel about how such a small group made such a big difference.

Jean: Thank you John!

John: Thank you Jean!

 

The Living WE… Accelerating Emergence…

In my dreams I see a Living WE, a matrix, a womb, where WE, each of us and all of us, the Willing, inspired, enabled and empowered, give birth to a caring, meaningful and purposeful future. Where WE coalesce to co-construct new rules, reproducible ventures, and concrete positive outcomes. Where WE converse, tell stories, exchange experience, examine possibilities, learn, research, evaluate, create, invent, modelize, experiment, adopt, practice… Where WE initiate and LIVE the change we want to see…

The Living WE is a global laboratory of thought and actions, taking multiple paths. Where WE, each of us and all of us, have a role to play, each with our diverse talents, sensitivities, passions and energies to achieve better futures… It gives us a voice, stimulates our choice and transforms our activity into achievements…

The Living WE is purpose centered and allows the purpose of each of us to be a center of organization and action, while converging towards an overarching purpose. It creates an appreciative connection between each of us and our environment, between all of us and our ecosystem…

The Living WE is based on our shared idea of why change must occur, on a shared direction towards our converging purposes with a compass to guide us along the way, a few virtues and philosophical principles as the stars and planets of our expanded horizon that we use to navigate…

The Living WE gathers human trust and harnesses commitment. It absorbs, channels, aggregates, debates, integrates, enriches, acts upon and renews an ever-evolving flow of tacit knowledge and experience. It provides the substance, tools, and practical examples that enable us to bridge our macro and our micro perspectives and dynamics, to transform our big ideas into small local actions and combine our small actions into large outcomes. It inserts our local independence in a global interdependence, and bridges our virtual and physical worlds…

The Living WE encourages self-organization and evolves organically. It grows by contagion, through interaction and influence, P2P. It snowballs ideas, innovations and practices and expands consciousness. All in ways that enable us to see evolution in the making and the transformative impact of each of us and all of us…

The Living WE adds up the small power and influence of each of us to move mountains. It is a legitimate counter and balancing power against any new world or national order or superpower. It keeps us safe from accelerating pace of life and protects us against collapse & singularity…

The Living WE is humanity as custodian of our ecosystem…

The Living WE is US. It is the framework, the platform I dream to build at Gathering 11…

Many thanks to Ulrike Reinhard who inspired me to put a name on my dream! Hope you will succeed in crowdfunding the launch of WE Australia!

Navigating the Unknown: 7 Reflection Tools


This is a re-post of an article that Gathering ’11 co-host Michelle James wrote a few years ago. I thought it was relevant to share here as we enter the unknown to co-create a better future. ~ David

Navigating the Unknown: 7 Reflection Tools

1. Change the lens you use for seeing the unknown. Do you see the unknown something to be feared, challenged, dealt with, managed or overcome? Or is it something to be navigated, explored, embraced, cultivated, or expressed? If you think of facing the unknown in your work what thoughts and emotions come to mind? What metaphor? A beast to be tamed, a wave to be surfed, a game to be played? How we perceive the concept of this unfolding future we call the unknown determines how easily we navigate it.

2. Consciously engage uncertainty. Whether we like it or not the unknown has now become our working partner. By actively engaging the unknown in small ways at first – such as with a low-risk/high-ambiguity project – you develop the essential skills to work with it in larger high-risk/high-ambiguity arenas. What would it take for you to go deeper into situations, pushing past what you currently know, before going forward? It feels counterproductive in our fast-paced culture, but by taking the up front time to go deep and explore multiple dimensions, next-level solutions begin to reveal themselves.

3. Allow the process to be messy. When we start consciously exploring unknown, there is a period of time where logic, order, and organization are put on hold as we get into the unearthing of new information. It can seem illogical, nonsensical, and even foreign-sounding as it emerges. Like all births, new directions are not necessarily tidied up and pretty as they enter the world. Similar to a baby being born, the ideas, structures and systems that emerge from the unknown space can look unrecognizable at first. The task it to continue to draw whatever shows up forth, amidst it messiness, until the new order emerges. There is a natural, self-organizing system at play in every emergent situation. How much time and space do you give to ideas to go formulate?

4. Actively leave the familiar. Just because something worked for one group in one situation doesn’t mean it is necessarily repeatable. Look back to the past for what is relevant to the new situation and bring it with you. Leave the rest behind. It is in our nature to seek the shelter of the familiar even if we know it is no longer serving us. Leaving what is comfortable and not working to dip into the “empty space” to draw forth the new is challenging. Do you have compassion for yourself (or others) when you are frustrated, overwhelmed and feel like you hit a wall?

5. Use multidimensional creative approaches. By using a variety of creativity tools, techniques and approaches you can engage more of your brain and more of your senses. The human habit is to approach uncertain situations with the same set of analytical tools each time. No matter how focused and capable your thought process, unless you do something different to activate new parts of the brain, the information will still travel down your same neural pathways in the same way and you will come up with the same types of solutions. If you purposefully integrate alternative methods, whole brain thinking and multi-sensory stimulation, awareness is heightened and you become more responsive and resilient. What are some ways you can intentionally do this?

6. Be the Beginner. Probably the most significant, yet challenging aspect of navigating the unknown is the willingness to enter the beginner mind. We live in a knowledge based society. We are educated to have the right answers. The more we know, the more intelligent, capable, and competent we are considered. We are rewarded and recognized for that which we know, not for that which we don’t know. Yet, in a world where the word innovation is showing up in exponentially more mission and vision statements, this is often exactly what is needed to move forward. It’s not about abandoning what you know, but bringing it to the table to sit side by side with what you do not know.

7. Accept the human paradox. Within the paradox of human nature, being what it is, the unknown is both dangerous and exciting, a threat to be feared and a mystery to be revealed. We are mystery seekers. There is a multi-billion dollar mystery industry–books, movies, adventure tours, Internet games, and haunted houses. There is something about walking around the corner and not knowing what will pop out that is inherently exciting and alive to us. Uncovering and discovering are in our nature–just look at a child exploring the environment, looking behind every crack and crevice for what’s next.
While a part of us may love the mystery, we have another part of us, in our reptilian primal brain, that has been hard wired to fear what is around the corner. Our ancestors knew well knowledge of our surroundings gave us control of a dangerous world. There was a real danger in leaving the safety of the cave. This is still true today. When we perceive threats to survival, we like to know what is next. Ironically, the same world that makes people want to retreat to their caves to hide from the “predators” is this same world that is requiring new levels of innovation to adapt and thrive. When is change exciting and when is it threatening to you?

The more you work with the unknown as a co-creative partner, the easier it is to stay grounded in the winds of change. It takes more than just deciding to embrace uncertainty to be able to do it. It takes understanding where you are in relationship to the unknown now, and then consciously choosing to be with the discomfort, and perhaps excitement, of exploring new territory. Underneath business buzz words, mission statements and strategic goals, there is an unsure human facing a new world. It takes practice. As with mastering any new skill, navigating the unknown is an ongoing process.  ~ Michelle James

 

Using the power of we to share and inspire

UPDATE: We managed to raise almost $1500 for Ulrike which was enough to get her to Australia. She has since collected “almost two WE_Magazines worth or content” in Australia! See Ulrike’s latest blog post here.

Ulrike is the co-founder and editor-in-chief of WE Magazine. WE shares the stories of social innovators and entrepreneurs making a positive impact on the world through the use of web and emerging platforms and technologies. WE stands for a community of believers, high profile visionaries and innovators, who, in their work and studies, are showing us that the internet is shaping and transforming society, education, politics and economics.

Ulrike is inspired by the stories she is hearing, and what she is seeing emerge with the growth of social innovation and social enterprise in Australia. She wants to meet Australians who share in the vision of WE,  and share their stories – your stories – with the rest of the world.

Let’s use the power of WE, and get Ulrike to Melbourne for Gathering ’11. Let’s help her meet inspiring people from around Australia who can share their stories of innovation and creativity in an edition of WE Magazine Down Under. Let’s help Ulrike discover how we are all taking action to build better futures, and give fellow Aussie change-makers the opportunity to share their stories for WE_The_Movie – being produced by award winning film-maker Maartje Nevejan. Ulrike is filming for the web launch of the movie.

Ulrike only needs $3000 to cover airfare to get to Gathering ’11 and accommodation for two weeks as she travels around Australia interviewing people for WE Magazine, WE The Movie and her television series. Thank you for helping make this happen. :)
