2021 Year of Emergence

We approach 2021 standing in the distinction Emergence. Rather than viewing the world as rigid or fixed, emergence relates to the world as a complex set of interdependent living systems. As such, we are challenged to evolve with ever-changing and unpredictable conditions and circumstances. We focus not on a final destination but on the direction we are heading. We know unexpected developments, opportunities, and challenges will come as we continue our work and face new transitions. So we trust in our ability to learn and adapt as we move forward, keeping in mind the advice of futurist Paul Saffo, "Never mistake a clear view for a short distance."
