Mission, Plans and Programs

Creating the Future is a collection of people around the world, supporting each other in a 10 year experiment in systems change.

The experiment: To determine how much more humane the world could be if the questions embedded in all systems, everywhere, were bringing out the best in each other.

Our Mission: Teach people how to change the systems they find themselves in, to aim those systems at bringing out the best in people, all by changing the questions they ask.

Our Plan:

Creating the Future is a grand experiment, answering this question: “If people everywhere were asking the kinds of questions that bring out the best in themselves and those around them, how much more humane could the world be?”

To make it easy to share the kinds of questions that can change the world, our work is rooted in a set of practices called Catalytic Thinking.

Our plan is therefore simple (and to see more detail, click here):

Create as many ripples-in-the-pond as possible in 10 years, so that everyone, everywhere, knows how to bring out the best in themselves and the people around them through the questions they ask every day, in every situation they encounter.

Keep learning, keep pushing the boundaries, keep sharing what we learn and support others in their learning, so that others will experiment and share what they are learning, creating more ripples in the pond.

Through those ripples, create as much kindness, health and resilience as possible in the world – a world that works for everyone.

If that sounds good to you, let’s explore and experiment together!
