Change the Conversation; Making a Qualitatively Different Future“>http://

Though this interview of Peter Block is focused on citizen engagement and city managers, the same principles hold true in any group of people that have a purpose.

As scientists gather together to hack the future of science, to create policy recommendations, to choose our path going into the future, the recommendation of Peter Block to hold off problem solving and solution sets as long as possible would be a key input to process.

To paraphrase, if you want to create a much stronger, visionary, future – one where science is connected deeply to society and participating in ‘turning the ship around’ for ecosystem health, human health, and innovations that truly serve, you have to change the conversation.
