SMART-G0V – How can we, the people, govern our world?

Discussion workshop
Aug 12 2016  16:00 - 18:00

In the film “The World Is My Country” (see separate activity) World Citizen #1 Garry Davis says : “We humans are an incredibly ingenious species,” “Why squander our genius on inventing smart bombs ? Why not invent ‘smart-gov’ – a way we can all interactively and intelligently and heart-fully govern our communities, our regions… and our world.”
Garry engaged Buckminster Fuller disciple Stafford Beer to help him develop a model for a global self-governing system in which each of us can participate – “Not mob rule, but true collaboration” as Garry says.
Garry passed away in 2013 but Arthur Kanegis, his video-biographer and mentee, invites collaborators to workshop the development of the architecture for a People Powered Planet, a new system of interactive governance that brings to the top the highest and best wisdom of each individual and amalgamates it into the wisdom of the whole – Smart-Gov !
