At our July DwD session we explored ways of framing the concerns we sometimes call “problems.” Impelled by the urgent and messy mix of issues we saw emerging following the G20 security event in Toronto, we inquired into the framing of the situation. What are the opportunities inherent in the problem as constructed? How do we establish and pierce through a problem frame so that the true concerns we share in common might emerge?
We then broke out into groups for a scanning and scenarios mapping exercise that explored the tension between entrenched and emergent systems. What kind of trends are we seeing today and how might those vector to become plausible future cultural norms?
