Creating Our Future: Improvisation for a Catastrophe (APA2301.02)

Susan Sgorbati

This class will look at how we are all responsible to co-create the world that we want to live in, particularly right now during this global pandemic. What are the skills and capacities we need to learn and practice in improvisation, complex systems analysis, emergent structuring, conflict transformation and collaboration? We will hear from professional practitioners either on-line or in person on public health and social emergency medicine, regenerative food and agriculture, local and state governance, new curriculums in education and current practices in ecological economics and politics. How can we see opportunities in a crisis and become resilient? How do we source our creative energies to impact our futures on a local, regional, national and global level?
This course will include guests, discussions and a commitment to serious thought and action.
