Call for Applications – Lead, Global Events

About Societal Thinking

Social problems grow and mutate rapidly. For a long time, we have been slowly and incrementally chipping away at them. But if we want to solve these problems in our lifetime, we need to think exponential, i.e., how can one change inspire more and rapid change?

Societal Thinking is a way to imagine and realise exponential change.
