Update: The future governance system prototypes have been unveiled, and can be viewed at reconcon.govfutures.org.
The Governance Futures Lab's ReConstitutional Convention is an experiment in re-thinking and re-making our systems of governance for an age of civilizational- and planetary-level challenges. And we need a new generation of Social Inventors to meet the challenge of governance in the Anthropocene Epoch. We need YOU!
Join us on Saturday, April 27 in Palo Alto for a governance design workshop. Bring your skills (whether as an artist, scholar, engineer, entrepreneur, performer, coder, creative, etc) and put them together with other social inventors here, and in 10 global nodes around the world. Simultaneously, in locations ranging from Burma to Birmingham, other social inventors will be taking design briefs and creating new systems, visions, or representations of new ways to govern people and the planet(s).
Interested in participating?
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in joining us here in Palo Alto, or any of the following satellite nodes:
