What would it take to bring about a world that weaves modernity and ancient wisdoms?
In this episode, I speak with Joe Brewer. Joe is the co-founder of the Design School for Regenerating Earth. He has a background in physics, math, philosophy, atmospheric science, complexity research, and cognitive linguistics. Joe was the co-founder and research director of Culture2 Inc., a culture design lab for social good. He is a former fellow of the Rockridge Institute, a think tank founded by George Lakoff. We discuss:
🥥 The indigenous notion of Third World, which brings together the best of Western science and indigenous knowledge;
🥥 How everything happens somewhere, and that somewhere is connected to somewhere else, creating a fabric of time and space and opening up spaces for bringing about the futures we imagine;
🥥 How composting the current dominant system allows for new life and new ways of being to emerge and grow.
