“To ensure the best possible future for society, one thing we must do or consider is…”

Dear Friend,

Like everyone, we are aware of the many major issues in our societies and cultures right now. Over 25 years, we have practiced the Group Concept Mapping approach that allows people to build a picture, through maps, of what something can be, beyond what it is. When we think about our future, we see GCM as an ideal way for us to come together and actually co-author our hopes for a vibrant and sustainable society.

We are inviting you to join the project. We are eager to see what our friends, colleagues, and partners around the world believe and value, to help describe our collective vision.

How do I participate?

We’ve collected many insightful ideas to our prompt “To ensure the best possible future for society, one thing we must do or consider is…”.  These have been synthesized into a group of statements. Now we ask for your help in rating these statements based on:

  • relative importance to society
  • personal relevance

The steps for rating are listed below. For your participation, you will be entered into a raffle for free project design assistance!

Why are we doing this?

Because in our 25 years of experience, we’ve learned from others that GCM is uniquely capable of creating a shared vision and solutions that are greater than the sum of their parts. No matter where you live, this project will value your perspective along with others’, and perhaps lead to new insights.

What are we going to do with it?

We’ll share the results with all the participants and publish them on our website. We hope to develop papers in target areas that can help each of us advocate for what matters!

Don’t worry if you have not used our new platform yet: groupwisdomTM will guide you!
