<-- Earlybird registration open"What happens when a virtual network of change-makers collide in physical space?"
This inagural festival/summit/retreat should be of interest to many of us here. In fact, it was fellow CICW members that conceived of this event and made it happen. (+kevin jones +Seb Paquet
) Many of our members have already registered to attend, which now includes me!
In reading through some of the "Co-Creator" profiles, it is clear that the festival will have a collective intelligence theme. (Whether it is made explicit or not)
Profiles that currently directly refer to "Collective Intelligence" belong to:+Connor Turland +Flemming Funch +George Pór +Helene Finidori

I am definitely excited to be going! Here is some more information taken from the website: (Or just head there)"Over the past four years, a root network of pioneers, future-hunters and visionaries has been quietly growing underground. From a small initial seed, the Next Edge has blossomed to a diverse global community that is now thousands strong and thinking every day about the challenges of our time.""Collectively, we hold an impressive amount of wisdom and a wide diversity of perspectives and understandings of the systems that make the world go - and of what makes them fall short of what’s needed in these times of accelerating change. Now, many of us sense the time has come to go beyond sensemaking and into doing together. How can we invest more deeply in each other? How might we become much more than the sum of our parts? This is the challenge we are taking on with this Festival."THEMES
