A New Community is Born
The world is fundamentally changing – it is transforming in front of our eyes and it is doing so faster than most people realize.
This is an exciting time that presents both challenges and opportunities for people. Even though the pace of change is now exponential, people have been taught to think linearly, so there is a huge disconnect and it is hard for us to fathom the scope and scale of the impact exponential change will have on every aspect of the lifestyles we love, and on society as a whole.
This is an exciting time because we literally have in our hands technologies that are enabling four drivers of transforming our world:
1. People Helping People: People coming together around a shared vision as we’ve seen in the women’s movement, the Arab Spring and Black Lives Matter movement. The enabler of these global movements is the power of the internet making global communications instantaneous, and social media channels that simplify and amplify the exchange of information among like-minded individuals.
2. People Enhanced by Technology: People enhanced by AI to make life easier and make us more effective as in: Alexa and Siri helping us get whatever we want auto-magically, helping us auto-magically remove spam from our emails, and helping power robotics in industry.
3. People Tapping More of our Full Potential: People using AI to power MRI and other tools diagnose diseases sooner, using CRISPER Cas 9 to edit our DNA and prevent disease altogether, and enabling. imaging allowing us to understand neuroplasticity and how can learn and grow more effectively.
4. People Choosing Abundance Over Scarcity: A trend has developed that fundamentally shifts the way. we see the world and choose to operate within it. Organizations and even cities are using a model call exponential organizations (ExO) to grow ten times (10X) as effective as others and improve the lives of billions of people: examples are Google that has billions of users, Uber and Lyft that have transformed the taxi business even though they own no cars, Airbnb transforming the way we vacation even though they own no hotels nor properties of any kind.
We are now able to shape the future as never before. We are now able to influence evolution and the next generation of our species for the betterment of humankind. Two thought leaders put it this way, “we have no idea of our ability to create the world anew,” and “society is totally unprepared for this.”
THIS IS THE WORK OF C 2.0: PREPARING PEOPLE AND SOCIETY TO MAKE OUR TRANSITION TO AN EXPONENTIAL FUTURE POSITIVE AND EQUITABLE FOR ALL PEOPLE, RESTORING OUR ENVIRONMENT AND OUR PLANET, AND LEADING THE WAY TO A THRIVING AND SUSTAINABLE FUTURE.
We have a short ten-year window in which this is possible. These six concepts frame the work of Community 2.0 and explain its purpose: Building exponential communities.
Exponential communities are ones that proactively embrace a future that will be, and have to be, very different than the past because our old ways of living have our planet on the brink of environmental disaster. We may soon destroy Earth’s ability to sustain human life and our species will vanish, even as the planet continues on without people.
The other major difference, and arguably our best means of overcoming climate emergency challenges, is the advent of several exponential technologies and their ability to connect humans more effectively so we can work together as one. People working more effectively with people – locally and globally – in communities where they have shared concerns. People working more impactfully because their talents are greatly enhanced by technologies such as artificial intelligence, and several others.
We invite you to explore with us and join the movement to learn how C 2.0 will mobilize large organizations and local governments to take action together, how we will convene and leverage the work of environmental and other nonprofits, and how we will engage and mobilize people in large numbers around the cause to save the planet, create a more equitable society, and empower each of us and all of us to reach our full potential.
Join us today in this exciting and important endeavor! The world needs all of us to be engaged!
