How is the current situation in the Nordic countries? How do we organize our work on Vision 2030 in relation to the pandemic we are on the way out of / are in? What transformative forces are important to consider? What opportunities do we see for adult learning?
In these times of transitional confusion, the greatest asset anyone can have is the ability to see and respond to the complexity of our times. “People Need People” is a Warm Data based project that builds on 150 years of Batsonian complexity thinking that shows up as a profound increased capacity to go beyond roles and artificial separations: borders, races, classes, ages.
People Need People is a conversational process that invites groups of online participants to explore the ways in which they are making sense of the rapid changes currently unfolding. These changes are taking place across and through multiple contexts of life.
