Whole System Solutions for Sustainable Development

World Café

How can our diversity & difference lead to common ground and common good?  What will it take to get the whole system participating in sustainable development?

150 people gathered in the first Bridges to the Future sessions at the ExCel Center during a sunny, spring day in London. James Syvitski and Eduardo Brondizio welcomed the group to a conversation around whole system solutions for sustainable development. What will it take?

The room was set in a café-style offering an inviting environment for people to engage in collaborative dialogue around meaningful questions.

Engage in your own conversations starting from where you are, enjoying this fine World Café’s harvest on: How can we become more collectively intelligent about what needs to happen? [PDF doc]
