Dream big with Rohit Talwar

Dream big with Rohit Talwar

(#22 of the Together-Ensemble series)

In this session of ‘Together-Ensemble’, we continued to write the dream.

And this time, we invited Rohit Talwar to a debate on “Aftershocks and Opportunities – Riding the Waves of Change”, one of his latest books.

Furthermore, we looked at the necessary transitions for individuals, society, employers, and governments.

Finally, this conversation led to a conversation on cryptoeconomy and the potential impacts on individuals, society, businesses, and nations as well as how its assets can help navigate future economic disruptions and protect individual citizens.

OPENING CONVERSATION

Rohit Talwar is a global futurist and strategic advisor.

MAIN RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THE WORKSHOP:

This talk inspired about 140 colleagues (among the 180 registered) to identify solutions to some
current complex problems.

In particular:

  • Forums for continuous citizen dialogue with EU institutions and leaders to be involved in decisions, that would not be imposed by Governments/EU. Basically, be educated on matters and exercise their right to what they think is better. Policy testing with citizen councils. Citizen voting on policy priorities and budget allocations
  • More agile processes to keep up with the fast-paced changes.
  • Support for continuous learning – Today’s educational system is preparing our youth for this type of work market and working conditions – General basic IT & financial literacy for everyone (mandatory curriculum from primary school) for all EU countries & citizens. Teaching how important is to protect Democracy to young and not so young people.
  • Safety net at social, educational, and cultural level in order to feel included in uncertain times
  • Intergenerational collaboration and open communication channels with citizens, use social networking to promote co-work & co-generation of ideas
  • Make all EU processes transparent with the blockchain – blockchain for confirmation of information among information sharing peers and “sealed” by peers who arise as trusted partners (since people put their trust into them).
  • Ease the decision making process at Council/Commission level
  • Use the days in the office to get rid of the silos work and collaborate with “”non-usual suspects””
  • If we consider less the “history” of our institutions, we will probably be less risk-averse into designing a future
  • More agile transitions between the public and private organisations. Less rigid divide between both

Tomorrow, I will share the outcomes of our open session to citizens, “facing the planetary emergency”. Definitely one of the most exciting sessions of Together-Ensemble, when we know that energy for the change comes from the periphery (i.e. citizens and other partner organisations).
