[Executive Director, The Centre for the Future – www.cftf.global]
What elements of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic are being hushed up? How will the Biden/Harris years be different from those of Trump? What is the developing situation between US-China trade? Why are students protesting in Hong Kong? Is the Glasgow COP26 going to lead to decisive action on the climate crisis? Why are a variety of zoonotic diseases likely to become more prevalent? Is Bitcoin the future of currency? What is the future of work?
These questions, and others like them, will be for the basis for The Deeper News, a series of monthly interactive inquiries in which we take a ‘deep dive’ into global affairs – within the context of the emerging societal transition from the age of industrial economism to an era of regenerative enterprise.
Extracting issues from social, economic, technological and geopolitical matters, we examine what is actually going on under the surface of our perceptions from multiple perspectives.
After a brief framing of each month’s topic, Dr. Hames will curate an hour-long strategic inquiry into aspects of the topic the corporate press are not addressing. Distinguished guests and topic experts will join the conversation from time to time.
During each program we use principles from systems thinking, together with a variety of other sense-making technologies, to surface patterns, make connections, define unseen dynamics, sort propaganda from the truth, and look for qualities that help us to make better sense of the unfolding narrative.
- Each episode will be a deep dive into one or more world headlines – covering economics, geopolitics, social development, current affairs, cultural narratives – and issues like sovereignty and ideology, for example.
- Prior to each session you will receive a special communication from Richard regarding the content that will be discussed and a framework for the deeper discussion
- Each session will introduce one or more aspects of systemic thought and practice including proprietary tools for you to use between sessions to expand your consciousness
- Certain sessions will feature special guest appearances
