World Summary

In our world today, we find ourselves engaged in a battle of imagination. The Collaborative Writers’ Room will be a safe place to explore our wildest dreams of what is possible. We begin with the question, “What if our favorite leaders of the regeneration movement were suddenly given unlimited financial, governmental, and military support? What would they do first? What will happen in 20-100 years?”

Then, we will explore the social-emotional level using the IDGs as a framework. Who did we have to become to live into this future? What internal transformation was required of our leaders and citizens? What rituals and practices would facilitate the integration of these sweeping changes into the mainstream? What beauty might emerge? What might become potentially disastrous?

In this world we will focus more on what we are for than what we are against. The IDGs will be used as narrative guides— ie. How is long-term thinking embodied by people and place in this world? What technologies exist to help us connect to our inner compass in this future? What is the leadership style of our neurodivergent leaders? What art is being made out of grief? How is empathy shared and experienced in the ways humans and non-humans are moving about?
