Emergent Future: Rethinking our world together


28th January - 1st February 2023

Asia Plateau, Panchgani, India

"Emergent Future: Rethinking our world together" - is an invitation to hear from you, social and thought leaders,  as we try to make sense of our ever-increasing complex world. We hope to learn about our current urgent needs and together explore the collective unknown. It is a space for questions, introspection, grieving, dialogue, connection, and  inspiration – in order to seek what is emerging within, between, and around us. 

In our 5 days together we will engage with each other through panel discussions, keynote speakers, ample spaces for discourse, collective and personal reflection and envision directions for the future.

The gathering is at Asia Plateau, the education centre for Initiatives of Change India. Asia Plateau, for decades, has  been a refuge for spirituality, inner listening and transformation, an incubator for envisioning inspired, collective and inclusive actions for self, community and the world.

Why 'Emergent' in 'Emergent Future'?  

The team designing the programme are looking at the meaning of the word emergent in 3 ways:

  1. Emergent as an idea that is already inside us and finding space through reflection/introspection/inspiration in the 5 days to allow it to blossom.
  2. Emergent as a place where we might find ourselves, stuck, at the edge, at place with despair and to share in that grieving and mourning with others but also with building our hope that something will emerge.
  3. Emergent as a new idea that emerges in community and through dialogue that is far bigger than the sum of the people talking could ever hope to generate.
