Recording: Inhabiting the Story of Our Future, Mar 16, 2023

We are storydwellers. Humans orient themselves through stories. Families, nation states, and religions have distinct stories that bind groups together, but those stories can keep us separated. We are the first global civilization that does not have a shared story of who we are, what we are doing here, and how we can flourish together. But we can change that. We can change our stories to adapt, to grow, to flourish. We think it’s possible that developing a shared story may be more foundational than any political or technological solution to our largest problems.

Join Doug Abrams, Pamela Ayo Yetunde, Gordon Wheeler, and Bill Vendley in conversation about how our stories, both personal and collective, can help us to reimagine and repair our world to create a shared future.
