IN AN INTERCONNECTED WORLD
We believe in a world where redefining growth
should be at the forefront of discussion.
Through lectures, discussions and workshops,
we hope to open a space where new understanding can grow.
We have created an Initiative Forum to do just that,
but we can’t do it alone. We’d love to see you there!

How has our current definition of growth brought us to this planetary crisis?
How can I imagine my role in a world strangled by its own growth?
How can we become active in growing together?
Initiative Forum 12 seeks to question what ‘growth’ could be today.
We believe that all things in this world reside
in a much deeper connection than they appear at a glance.
We see them existing as one complex living system,
always interacting with each other, and always interconnected.
It stands to reason then, that our economy, environment
and social well-being also exists as part of this complex living system.
They are never free from interacting with each other.
With this in mind, it seems today’s growth only benefits a minority group of people.
Social inequality still dominates the global community.
Contrary to the ‘infinite riches’ on the earth,
we are becoming cripplingly poor in its resources.
Our relationship to the planet, to each other, and to ourselves
is shrinking, not growing.
WHAT ARE WE DOING?
We believe that a crisis in an interconnected world
requires an interconnected response.
We invite you to ask questions, imagine
and to challenge yourself to step into action.
Together we will re-imagine what growth can be.
The fruits of our ideas may well nourish us tomorrow,
but we cannot grow them alone. We need your help.
Think creatively. Act collectively. Grow Individually.
