GODCW: “What Was OD Made For? How OD Can Help Lead the Net-Positive Earthshot” with Dr. David Cooperrider

May 22 @ 11:00 am - 12:15 pm EDT

Here is a truth that could change the life of every person in the field of OD: You are alive at just the right moment to help human systems at every level change everything.

It’s been called the largest change project in human history…It involves mobilizing human change capacity at scales and speeds we have never seen. It requires the re-design of the entire material basis of our civilization. Ending the climate crises in less than a generation, reaching the science-based targets of net zero climate emissions by 2050, and doing so in ways that inclusively, equitably, and collaboratively creates a better world for all—e.g., our UN global goals of gender and racial equality; zero hunger; quality education; health and wellbeing for all; dignified work and a nature-positive economy in the service of life; and more—requires a fundamental transformation of the global economy. Moreover, failure—at a planetary scale with the clock ticking–is not an option. What’s the magnitude of this transformation, change opportunity, and call of our times for the field of OD? Think every industry. Think of a 90 trillion-dollar economy. Think of 300 million businesses, many of them larger than nation-states. Think of the vast numbers of NGOs and public organizations aspiring to contribute to the world’s mission. Think of every city. Every community. Think every professional association, school, university and more.

This is an EARTHSHOT MOMENT for OD and for everyone and every organization on the planet. Come help us explore not just the challenges but the vast new vistas for a life-centric OD, a field crucial for mobilizing the collaborative change capacities required for building a world of “full spectrum flourishing.”
