Joyful Change

Joyful Anticipation: Converging Trends Toward a Changing Future (and what we can do to get there)

We’re obviously in a period of great change–social changes, economic system changes, climate changes, changes in resources–and most of us feel this isn’t like any ordinary period of change in the last few hundred years.   These articles examine the forces of change that are building to a climax and allow us to peek at–and quite literally participate in–the outcomes.   I hope you’ll enjoy this four-part series.

These articles are based on a March 2009 Lecture to the Austin IONS group on future trends, what to expect, and how to get there.   Each part is listed below.   PICTURES ARE BACK!   Part four has lovely illustrations which have now been uploaded.
