Facilitating Breakthrough Strategies to Address the Global Climate Crisis 

Climate change is an example of one of the existential threats to human civilization as global warming and species extinction continue to accelerate rapidly. Increasing carbon in the atmosphere out-paces present global security and the climate models calculating the risks to our living systems. The Deep Dialogue offered by the TAP (Adjacent Possible) process also addresses the need to minimize human suffering caused by the “multiplier” effects of extreme weather on food and health insecurity.

Combining mini-lectures, suggested readings, participatory exercises, and opportunities for practicing together on Zoom, we will dialogue deeply about the consequences for international stability from new trade wars, resource wars, mass migration, and if there is interest, the heightened possibility of nuclear war resulting from the new arms race tied to climate-related events.

After this workshop, participants will:

Continue to expand their knowledge and use of complex systems thinking

Expand their knowledge of the major risks to a peaceful and sustainable planet

Recognize the difference between systemic interventions and band-aid solutions 

Embrace new leadership skills to successfully facilitate meetings that imagine novel approaches and policies needed to secure a peaceful transition to living on future Earth

Internalize hope for the possibility of a flourishing future for all species living on Earth
