We call our task the nine “explorations” – exploring the edges of what our societies need now:

The Edge of Gathering

Designing ways for people to be in true dialogue with each other and creating space for them to address hard topics

The Edge of Learning

Scaling creativity to the sectors and places where it is most needed

The Edge of Humanity

Exploring the evolving features of human experience, from aging and death to transhumanism

The Edge of Things

Suffusing the complex products and systems of everyday experience with humanity

The Edge of Philanthropy

Activating 21st century generosity and developing new forms of giving and social participation

The Edge of Science

Collaborating with the scientific disciplines of our new age to help people, and the planet, flourish
