Systems Thinking and Designing Desirable Futures

from HATCH Global Living Room with Fritjof Capra and Terry Irwin

Groups and individuals who visit 1440 experience time differently, exploring important global issues that matter to the greater good while surrounded by mountain air and towering ancient redwoods. 1440 Multiversity meticulously curates experiences that connect people while allowing them to discover new approaches for how to live, lead, love, work, and wonder.

The HATCH Global Living Room is converting curated conversations to collaborations and action. It is times like these that remind us why we build communities and networks. The Covid Pandemic, and social distancing have inspired innovators from across the globe to reinvent digital spaces and how we engage with them. HATCH is excited to create a space where the inspired can come together to connect, collaborate, and work towards accelerating solutions for good.

Join Hatch Global living room for a discussion featuring Physicist, systems theorist, deep ecologist, and author Fritjof Capra and Terry Irwin, Director of the Transition Design Institute at Carnegie Mellon regarding Systems Thinking and Designing Desirable Futures.

The weekly Global Living Room sessions are a medley of diverse insights by astronauts, scientists, technologists, CEOs, artists, poets, and extraordinary humans from multiple countries around the world. It’s a time of collective sense-making, working to understand inflection points, reframe challenges, and identify opportunities to create real solutions.


Fritjof Capra

In 1995, he became a founding director of the Center for Ecoliteracy in Berkeley and is on the faculty of Schumacher College. Fritof is the author of The Tao of Physics, The Web of Life, Hidden Connections, and co-author of The Systems View of Life: A Unifying Vision.


Terry Irwin
Irwin’s research is in transition design, a study, practice and framework for a societal transition toward more sustainable futures. Terry was also on faculty at Schumacher College, an international center for ecological studies, and is convinced that large, complex problems can only be solved by transdisciplinary, collaborative teams and that design has a powerful role to play as a catalyst for positive social and environmental change.
