Designing the Future - The Science of Intentional Change

October 11-12, 2019

Catalyst HTI

Denver, Colorado

Change is happening all the time. But we are often overwhelmed by its unintended consequences. Can we get better at creating positive change intentionally, as individuals, organizations, communities, institutions, and countries, through mindful attention to the consequences of our actions? How can we embrace unintended consequences that add value, and better anticipate those that destroy value? To do so is likely to require approaches - such as human-centered design, systems thinking, collective action, and relational coordination - that are inclusive and mindful of interdependence.
