Communities for Future
Our Response to the Climate Emergency
February 1-10, 2020
Margaret Wheatley's message brings humility and pragmatism to our hopes and ideals. What if the possibility we need to open up to is one of civilisational collapse? She compares the reality of what we are facing in our world today with civilisations in the past that did collapse and draws some painful parallels. Instead of hoping for systemic change, she believes that we are better off, focussing on local action in community, where we can create islands of sanity and kindness within larger seas of collapse.

From these deep and varied experiences, she has developed the unshakable conviction that leaders must learn how to evoke people’s inherent generosity, creativity, and need for community.
