The wake-up call
We live in a time of massive institutional failure, in which we collectively create results that nobody wants. The list is well known: Inequalities, Climate change, Hunger, Poverty, Terrorism, Violence, Destruction of communities, nature, life—the foundations of our social, economic, ecological, and spiritual well-being. These times call for a new consciousness, collaboration and collective leadership capacity to meet these challenges in a more conscious, intentional, and strategic way.
The development of such a capacity would allow us to create a future of greater possibilities.
As Africa emerges, rises, and begins to forge a more positive outlook ahead, a concerted efforts to rethink the future and come up with relevant and sustainable ideas for the future is fundamental. Co-creation or collaborations through iterations and reflections by combinations of the diverse actors or stakeholders is today the core process for any sustainable development or change
