Global SoL 4.0 Gathering
SoL members and friends around the world will meet this time to reflect and dialogue on our world as we see it today – with her vulnerabilities, strengths and resilience – as a living system.
- To explore together the following calling question: As a living system, how do we reflect on the world as it is and respond to what is wanted and needed now?
- To inquire in how we see ourselves as a living system (Global SoL 4.0, network of networks, etc.).
- To learn together, evolve and build a proactive network of aligned and committed people.
- By making good use of our systemic inquiry tools, we would bring to the surface our core beliefs and assumptions.
- See how our rich heritage, including the five disciplines, may still offer a direction for our Global Communities in cooperation for the benefit of all.
- Of course, we will follow SoL framework:
- We are together to self creating and co-creating.
- We work on a learning perspective..
- We care about each other as we would like everyone to feel safe.
- We respect and value every contribution.
- We keep parity in our conversations, each individual and each opinion is valuable.
- We listen.
- We are not in a problem solving approach but a wicked or complex situation approach.
- We cannot correct the living system, but only redesign the learning process.
- We create conditions for self, team and large system opening up, meaning and co-create conditions for learning and transforming.
