Opening for witnesses to interact with the Living University
4 Morning Deep-Dives Tuesday 24th through Friday 27th
3 Evening Dinner Jams Tuesday 24th to Thursday 26th
Next Sunday, in just a week, the participants to the Living University of the Blue Economy will arrive in Rotterdam and convene for a get together late afternoon/evening in Blue City…
They are coming from all over the World. The diversity of the group is staggering: ages (from 17 to 87 years old), education, past and actual professions and civic activities, position in society, experience, engagement (from very local and micro to geopolitical)…
One thing in common though: a willingness to contribute to the necessary but still invisible and inconceivable metamorphosis happening in the World
What I want to highlight today is the opportunity for everyone to participate to the deep-dives and dinner jams
Can you imagine the power of a core group of participants interacting with the more than 1000 witnesses – most of the in their own way entrepreneurs for the common good. They will be offered the opportunity to attend one (or more) of the 4 different morning Deep dives on Tuesday thru Friday or one (or more) of the 3 dinner jams on Tuesday through Thursday.
These witnesses – most to emerge as entrepreneurs for the common good – will get the opportunity to share their passion for their own initiative with the core group. What will come out of these learning interactions can be truly staggering.
And it will create relations beyond all boundaries – it will link together the immense diversity of initiatives, that so often remain struck far from their highest potential because not related to a nourishing whole
Edgar Morin said it so well:
On every continent, in every nation, a whirlwind of creative activities, a multitude of local initiatives is happening. It’s is directed towards economic, or social, or political, or cognitive; or educational, or ethical, or live enforcing regeneration. (What should be connected is still isolated, separate, scattered). These initiatives don’t know about each other, no administration count them, no political party takes account of them. They represent however the breeding ground of the future. Salvation will originate from the ground. They should be acknowledged, identified, registered, collected and combined into a variety of reformation paths. In each and in all, it is required to relate, improve, stimulate. When jointly evolving these multiple path-ways may combine to chart a new course, to alter and dissolve the one we are following, leading us to the yet still invisible and inconceivable Metamorphosis.
Edgar Morin in “La Voie” 2011, Freely translated from French
