Future Based Thinking: Celebrating our 2020 Prototypes

Future thinking (or foresight)

What is foresight & future thinking keeping it short & simple have a look at this resource ( 3 benefits of Future thinking).

Why “Learning”..

I have been working with teachers all this year and it has been absolutely amazing work. My focus has been for at least 6 years if not all my life on learning: how does it happen, how do I feel so great when I am learning, what is the social mechanism ( technology) behind that makes this action so natural & needed for humans ( and actually more than human. 

Learning is like breathing we do it and not realise 🙂 ( sometimes). If you want to follow up on this process learning as a human value, you can consider this article Bohm with Krishnamurti.

Model & framing

When it comes to Future Based Thinking or Foresight Thinking, we can build our own model for doing the work “ our muscles” – it is a mindset, as any mindset needs to be “owned” ( you make it yours) and practiced ( build routines). I actually propose with this article & webinars a model based on 2 models. One is Action Based Learning- model from Kolb ‘87 with the adaptations of Peter Hawkins and Theory U from MIT Otto Scharmer & Presencing Institute.

Action webinar

With this article we are proposing webinars in different languages with communities of “you”s. How do you know if you are a “you”s and this practice/webinar could be a good time allocated? Let’s see: do you like trying different things (doesn’t really matter if you act on them just trying), do you appreciate presence and discovering new things about you ( although you might think I have known me all my life :)), do you read & get interested about small/big innovations around you (your life, work) then I invite you in Future Based Thinking – Celebrating 2020 Prototypes webinar. 

First webinar will be on 28th December , duration ~120min & proposed times 11 am or 5 pm EET.
