The current global crisis is creating amazing possibilities to help us address the following critical questions:
What do you need to survive and thrive both now and in the coming decades? Personally, in your profession, business, family and community?
How can you co-create that with other like-minded people?
What first steps can we take together on that journey?
Renaissance2 Great Shift Partner Gathering, June 22nd and 23rd, Perpignan, France
At the Renaissance2 Great Shift Partner Gathering you will join leaders who have had deep experience in creating the next wave of social, business and technological innovation. We invite you to become a part of this exclusive group of social innovators to share your insights and celebrate each other's success by registering now as an Renaissance2 member and booking through the R2 website.
Between being inspired by the keynote speaker panels at the Great Shift Partner Event, you’ll gain even more taking part in one or more of the working groups centred around four innovation crucibles vital to our future. Your contributions will help catalyze their success and develop your own practical insights and valuable connections.
We now have all the tools and technologies we need to co-catalyze a new Renaissance. At this event we use them to take the next step in accelerating open source innovation between business people, social entrepreneurs, innovators, cultural and spiritual leaders, civil society and governments, to address the most challenging issues facing human civilization today.
Work together with the partner organizations and leading members of Renaissance2, a not-for profit foundation whose mission is to catalyze world-centric social innovation, on the four innovation crucibles we need to make this dream a reality:
7 Key R2 Innovation Crucibles
The R2 events will deliver real outcomes by interweaving the 7 Key R2 Innovation Crucibles. The first four innovation crucibles, Renewable energy, Resilient Environments, Enlightened Enterprise and Integral Governance are inspired and fueled by the accelerated evolution of human consciousness. The three “soft” crucibles Conscious Evolution, Human Wellbeing and Wise Culture measure the individual and organizational stages of human development.
There are already 12 great speakers lined up for the Great Shift Partner Event in June including David Woolfson who is President of the Club of Budapest in Canada and Mark Henderson CEO of Ecoliving.
The event also has an exciting partnership with “Worldshift 2012” which includes Green Cross president Michael Gorbachev and musician Peter Gabriel.
R2 Global Meshwork
The Renaissance2 meshwork, R2 Global Meshwork, has proven to be a great success and now has over 100 members including experienced professionals and sparkling young talent. On the meshwork you can join discussion forums and explore the R2 innovation crucibles which interest you most.
To get involved in this flourishing meshwork sign up on the Renaissance2 website and follow the meshwork links.
Imagine yourself living in a world …
… powered by renewable energy...where people live and work in well designed, resilient environments…in which enlightened enterprises deliver excellent, sustainable products and services…one where integral governance is provided by foresightful, healthy organizations and systems…and conscious evolution powers a thriving global civilization in which a wise culture and human wellbeing are paramount.
Come join us at Renaissance2 to catalyze this Great Shift.
