To Change Everything.
We Need Everyone.
The Center for Emergent Diplomacy is a social-profit think tank exploring radical diplomatic processes from the frontier of whole systems theory and practice. Using unique problem solving and negotiation processes drawn from Complexity science, we convene and facilitate groups of thought leaders and activists from all sectors of society in support of mass collective action to create systemic change. Concentrating on what works and what needs to be tried, our projects, workshops, and conferences weave together cutting-edge ideas, goals, and campaigns to create collaborative global impact.
We embrace psychologist Dorothy Stoneman's challenge: "It is imperative that we select as our goals the most far-reaching, deep, uplifting, revolutionary goals that will produce the most universal benefits for humanity:
"It is imperative that we select as our goals the most far-reaching, deep, uplifting, revolutionary goals that will produce the most universal benefits for humanity,the planet Earth and the universe. There is no point in choosing partial goals, because we will limit our success precisely to the extent that we limit our goals."
Our social systems, and the natural systems of which we are a part, are undergoing accelerated change, and in many cases are disintegrating. Climate change and cancerous growth resulting from unfettered global capitalism compromise our survival. We leave to others the essential work of triage on human and natural ecologies caught up in system failure. We focus a laser beam on the underlying causes of failure and negotiate direct actions that lead to a more equitable, productive, and happier future for all.
