Alvis Brigis on Acclerating Social Change

We’re asking each of the participants in The World Transformed to give us their thoughts on one major coming transformation. Here  Alvis Brigis shares some ideas.

If you were to pick just one current or coming transformation (does not have to be the one we discussed) that you would advise people to focus on, which one would that be?

The social side of accelerating change.

What should we be doing about it?

Studying it. Pooling knowledge as fast as we can. Developing big science.

What’s in it for us if we get it right?

Surfing the curve. Humanity coping with extreme pressure.

What are the risks if we don’t?

Mega disruption. Perhaps war.
