  • 4. Three parts Interaction 17 Reflection sessions report A version of our keynote talk Group reflection and discussion
  • 5. We believe in reflection fitassociates.com/getting-still
  • 6. Morning reflection sessions at Interaction 17 An invitation to step back and notice what you we are learning
  • 8. Reflect in pairs  small groups
  • 10. Day 1: You Why is it important for you to be here? What do you plan to get at this conference? What do you hope to give at this conference? What really matters to you at this conference, what stands in the way of having an experience that matters? Day 2: The conference conversation “I’m tired of …” “I’m grateful for ...“ “I’m missing ...” Day 3: Our industry and future
  • 11. We stand in a difficult moment in history. We have inherited a world that works for some at the expense of others. We are disconnected from the consequences of our actions. It is alluring to participate unconsciously and believe that “everything is ok.” It is therefore important to step outside the comfort of our industry and our time, and ask critical questions.
  • 12. What might future generations ask of us? What might those outside of, but affected by our industry, ask of us? So we asked…
  • 13. Do we consider the unintended consequences of designing only for ourselves? Why don’t we take the opportunity to change consumption habits rather than feed technological addiction? Why don’t we take leadership to shift the moral and ethical compass of our design community? Why don’t we refuse to do work that is against our moral commitments? Why aren’t we talking about designing jobs away? Why so many fucking photo apps? Some of the answers we heard
  • 14. “Business as usual” ain’t working, it’s hurting.
  • 15. “Hope locates itself in the premises that we don’t know what will happen and that in the spaciousness of uncertainty is room to act. When you recognize uncertainty, you recognize that you may be able to influence the outcomes–you alone or you in concert with a few dozen or several million others. Hope is an embrace of the unknown and knowable, a alternative to the certainty of both optimists and pessimists. Optimists think it will all be fine without our involvement; pessimists take the opposite position; both excuse themselves from acting. It’s the belief that what we do matters even though how and when it may matter, who and what is may impact, are not things we can know….” Rebecca Solnit Possibilities everywhere
  • 16. Two points about that… “Business as usual” ain’t working, it’s hurting. 1. At the same time, a lot of good things are happening, and they add up to something big. 2. We’re finding methods, strategies and approaches that help us all participate in those things.
  • 17. 1. At the same time, a lot of good things are happening, and they add up to something big. (My job for the next four minutes is to overwhelm you with just how many good things are going on.)
  • 19. Look at one lab: the South Africa Lab

  • 28. “These aren’t the last guttering candles before we slip into total darkness. These are the symptoms, flowers, and seedlings of the future. This is exactly what you would expect for the early stage of an ecological transformation.” John Thackara

  • 30. We affect the grand shift by shifting the way we participate in our own contexts, and by creating contexts that afford shifts in others’ participation.

  • 31. 2. We’re finding methods, strategies and approaches that help us all participate in those things. Methods: room-of-people scale Strategies: wisely connecting room-scale activities in sequence 1. A lot of good things are happening, and they add up to something big.
  • 32. We see an exciting blossoming of methods for doing this work at roomful-of-people scale.
  • 36. Methods in practice: The “treat-animals-well society”
  • 37. Gather from many departments (“gather diversity and power”
  • 38. Shift: from think-by-talking to think-by-making

  • 43. Reflect (take a walk), Reframe
  • 44. We can connect these methods in series to make STRATEGIES for participatory, systemic, emergent acts of co-creation. Here’s another story… Methods: room-of-people scale Strategies: wisely connecting room-scale activities in sequence Approaches: engaging with bigger scales and longer horizons
  • 45. Sam Kaner www.communityatwork.com | Source of this story (recommended!): vimeo.com/32178909
  • 46. A visual language for participation strategies Sam Kaner
  • 47. Sam Kaner Convene diversity and power, engage authority
  • 48. Sam Kaner Support participation with process expertise
  • 49. Sam Kaner Create good conditions, then give emergence its time
  • 50. Sam Kaner Stabilize, amplify, and perhaps spread what takes root
  • 51. The people who curated this process are fluent in the work of social emergence: convening and hosting conversations, participatory decision-making, the dance between acting or intervening and stepping back to trust the creative forces of community. We can also gain that fluency.
  • 52. 1. At the same time as all the bad things, a lot of good things are happening, and they add up to something big. 2. We’re finding methods, strategies and approaches that help us all participate in those things. We can know how to do this stuff! And that’s my two points.
  • 53. Shifting the way we participate in our own contexts (and working with the conditions for others’ participation) requires awareness, courage, support and practice. A third point
  • 54. Practicing open dialogue during a meeting
  • 55. Practicing acceptance and conversations Photographs: Stephanie Sun
  • 58. Never before have the possibilities for action been so abundant. Never before has the potential to interconnect all these actions been so great. Therefore the time for putting the blame to those in power lies behind us and the time for kick-starting small but massive action lies in front. In a networked society the transition to a more sustainable living environment will not only be realized by a handful of large-scale projects that are orchestrated by a few. It will mostly be shaped by a billion tiny interrelated actions that are initiated by all of us. In a networked society we, as citizens, have power. We can influence decision making by posting, forwarding, grouping, choosing and approving. We can reshape our living environment by initiating, exchanging, sharing, improving and building upon what was developed by those who came before us. It’s now simply up to us to be aware of these new opportunities in order to exploit them to the fullest. Thomas Lommee www.intrastructures.net/Intrastructures/Actions_-_The_next_big_thing_2.html
