How to act on time?
On this Friday we will feel the emergency to find an international agreement… This emergency is calling other questions : how to develop a resilient economy and society on time? What is time and how to develop a long term vision? Shall we use backcasting approaches?

If we are to act collective on time, how and where do we begin?  Is an increase in the complexity of the problem a way to begin?  Should we be thinking about systems rather than isolated solutions?  What is the role of NGO’s, non-profits, and private foundations?  Are they perhaps more a part of the problem than the solution by  focusing too narrowly on targeted problems?  What would be the result if we instead focused upon what we want over what we don’t want?

This day is dedicated to kids. We want to work with them and educate them in a very innovative way (games, workshops, movies, etc.).
