How come, that we look at the same world - "data" and make so different conclusions?

The Vision of Galileo - Part 2

As coaching leaders, we are looking through different eyes and listening through different distinctions than those we coach.

We have direct experience of the greatness of people.

The Vision of Galileo - Part 1

What does it mean to look into something long-term, with passion and care, and then move past the rigid orthodoxies of your day? This was the challenge that Galileo faced, also similar to our time. What does it mean to affirm your inner and outer truths and bring them together into clarity of action? What does it mean to share truthfully your discoveries and vision with those around you when it is not politically correct? It may mean to rebuild the life of your society so it can survive!

World Game Antalya 2019 
Why should I come?

First let's look at the world around us. Most people by now would agree that we have a serious situation around us with a host of global issues. So we might agree on the importance of topics like global warming, deforestation, depletion of global resources especially in the seas, extinction of various life forms, soil erosion, deposits of plastics in the seas etc. However, traditional problem solving methods do not work any more, because our world has become increasingly complex and interconnected. Such complex systems do not have well defined cause and effect structure. Hence, there are no well defined solutions either and on top of it the systems are changing rapidly. If traditional problem solving is attempted, unintended consequences start creeping in resulting in even bigger problems replacing the original problem which got solved.

Four Quadrant view on sustainable growth

Let us start by looking into the conditions for sustainable growth first. As I mentioned in the previous article on World Game we humans use more resources of our planer Earth than are regenerated on an ongoing basis (see: https://www.overshootday.org/ ). This simple statement means that our situation on Earth is not sustainable in long term and unwanted consequences start popping up in avery area of our existence. Next we need to realize that mainstream economic theory is based on our material growth as measured by Gross Domestic Product (GDP: "GDP measures the monetary value of final goods and services—that are bought by the final user—produced in a country in a given period of time (say a quarter or a year)." see:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gross_domestic_product ). This definition of GDP cuts through the appearances and makes complicated things simple. It implicitly means that ultimately there needs to be more and more goods and services consumed by one consumer and more and more consumers in the given economy for that economy to keep growing.

Who do we want to "Save" here?

Environmental awareness is picking up at present worldwide. The effects of global warming, global pollution and extinction of species are becoming undeniable to almost anyone. 
Hmm, maybe except of some politicians. However, the topic is often presented as calls to "Save the World". 
I realized that I feel uneasy about such phrase so let me have a closer look at it from a larger perspective in time and space. The word: "World" by Merriam Webster relevant entries means: - the earthly state of human existence - the earth with its inhabitants and all things upon it - the inhabitants of the earth: the human race. Which one do we refer to when we call for: "Save the World" initiatives?
