“What NOW?” !!! Meetings
An idea whose time has come . . .
“Problems are never solved at the same level in which they were created.” Albert Einstein
‘What Now?’ is a community discussion and “Inquiry” conversation.
In these rapidly changing times we have never been where we are today.
Technology, jobs, banks, housing market, education, community and personal & family concerns have never been where they are today.
The social climate we are facing seems to be ‘DEMANDING’ and ‘CALLING FORWARD’ new thought, new services, new businesses, NEW SOLTUIONS! for succeeding in our everyday life and in our communities.
“What gets us in trouble is not we don’t know, it’s what we know for sure that just ain’t so.” Mark Twain
There is a vast reservoir of wisdom, which only comes from life experience, held in generations ‘40 something’ and over. And, this is the first time in history ‘30 something’ and under generations, have more access to more ‘information’ due to technology becoming a natural extension of every day life starting when you are two! This calls for new ways of relating and communicating in our current environment of rapidly moving technology. It poses a unique and demanding new way of thinking for all generations to actively engage in co-creating a world that works for everyone.
“What Now?” meetings will pose a topic and questions for ‘inquiry discussion’ at each meeting. The purpose of ‘What Now?’ is to engage, explore and discuss current issues and challenges we face in our everyday life and exchange ideas, new thoughts and solutions being called forward in these rapidly changing times. This is a forum intended to include a broad spectrum of age group’s to add to the richness of conversation and exchange in a discussion about ‘What Now’! Ages 6 to 160 are encouraged to attend.
Join us and bring a friend or family member to have a spirited, engaging and insightful discussion about “What Now?” and co-creating new solutions.
What Now meetings are strictly based on volunteer and donation in the spirit of co-creating ??? What? now.
