Co-Creative Emergence: World Building
This month on REFRAME Magazine, we tackled the Wicked Problem known as Analysis Paralysis and reframe it as the Wicked Opportunity of Co-Creative Emergence.
Co-Creative Emergence, a Wicked Opportunity that would empower humanity with the agency to both observe and manifest regenerative landscapes. Rather than attempting to control our world through data-centric models, this approach leads us to relearn that we are a part of nature. As such, we have the ability to join the collective dance of co-creation, living in the epic tension of both humbly yielding to the changing nature of the future while also actively giving birth to adaptive, resilient and transformational realities.
CONTENT 1: WICKED OPPORTUNITY PODCAST
Emergence is a property of exponential complexity in which the unfolding nature of reality can look very different from today’s parts, pieces and expected pathways. However, this does not mean that we lack agency when it comes to charting the future. Humanity is not separate from nature – we are a part of nature – and as such, we play a co-creative role in recognizing, understanding, embracing and cultivating transformational realities. Join Yvette and Frank as they use the Point of Impact questions to map out how we think, frame, connect, produce and use in a world of increasing emergence. (And don’t forget, this month’s graphic map is now available. Mercator would be proud!)
CONTENT 2: INFOGRAPHIC
Visualize the movement from today’s Wicked Problem – Analysis Paralysis – toward the transformational Wicked Opportunity – Co-Creative Emergence. The map tells a story of the data points we’ve uncovered during this month’s thought leadership, including root causes, trend connections, and point of impact responses. View the full map to see what we discuss in this week’s podcast, the Point of Impact questions, to envision a world impacted by Co-Creative Emergence!
