3 HOURS TO FORESIGHT HIVEMIND LAUNCH:
SEEKING LONG-TERM FUTURES IN TIMES OF CRISIS
If a catastrophe is an event which causes the loss of most expected value, a eucatastrophe is an event which causes there to be much more expected value after the event than before (source).
Currently, there may be a few unique opportunities to steer the COVID-19 crisis away from catastrophe toward eucatastrophe.
Some demand urgency given the speed with which the crisis is changing and the likely short time-window in which it will be possible to push for those ideas.
The earlier we start exploring options, the better.
On April 25, 11 am PDT / 8 pm CEST we’re starting the Foresight Hivemind, a three-week global online workshop to develop promising opportunities into action.
