A few words from Adina,
Today, more than ever before, the future is unknown. This is why we need to focus on what we do know. Our social nature has enabled us to accumulate experience and wisdom, if only we decide to deploy it skilfully and adaptively, going forward.
The future of the fourth technological revolution is a future where ambiguity, ambivalence, concurrent options, volatile truths and permanent change are indeed calling for a new way of relating to the world that is much more flexible and adaptive. But we also need to stay centered whilst embracing tensions, uncertainty and contradiction. To this end dialectic and complexity thinking informed by our purpose and ethics, will enable us to make sense of a shifting reality, prime our resources, identify and use opportunities as they arise and build resilience and self-belief, which will keep us hopeful, alert, effective and cognitively, emotionally and pragmatically agile.
In the new age of digital technology, the new agile must be about a strong human core of relevant aspirations and purpose that illuminates the path forward, in line with an individual and collective agenda that we need to set for ourselves.
Shared value innovation and socially friendly businesses will empower us to navigate a shifting and unravelling reality, discover and realise our potential and manifest it in the world, through a meaningful existence.
The path ahead is likely to be meandering and challenging, but our humanity may be our greatest asset, and with thousands of years of accumulated civilisation behind us, we will once again adapt to change, pursue the course we set for ourselves and collectively build a better future society for us all.
Technology will not impact our world in the same way everywhere, at once; but impact it will! and it is just a matter of when and how.
