Calling All Explorers

Making brave spaces to do new thinking together since 2018

In 2018, we rented an event site in Toronto and invited anyone who felt the world needed new thinking to come together at "Basecamp". We called it Basecamp because "the summit is something very different and very far away."


Over 100 people from over 25 countries showed up. We're still hearing new consequences of what people began there, together: a new book on the future of cities; a new global movement to transform higher education; a new partnership in financial literacy.

The next year, we did it again outside London, England. Same number of people, only this time we took over a castle for two days. It sparked a new movement in public health; a campaign to improve digital well-being; a new venture capital fund.

Then the global pandemic hit, and we hosted dozens of free conversation-events online for members of this growing Society.

Calling All Doers

The new world is complex and uncertain.

We can’t be sure in advance what will work to achieve our purpose. We need to learn more about this new world and try brave new ways.

Our own perspective is partial.

We need to bring people together to gain from each other’s view and build a richer understanding.

What worked yesterday might not work tomorrow.

We need to keep exploring.

Calling All Thinkers

We need to explore more.

To explore means:

  • To prefer ambiguous questions over straight-and-simple answers.
  • To prefer emergent possibilities over pre-set destinations.
  • To prefer surprising consequences over intended results.
  • To prioritize making good beginnings over getting things done.

To explore means to think in a way that contradicts much of modern work and life.

To explore also means finding others to think with us — and open ourselves to be changed by the exchange. We all have gaps on our maps that only other people can help us fill.

Calling All Poets

Do you hear the call to explore?

We hear it from within.

We are imbued with the need to seek meaning and purpose. We are born with the yearning and capacity to expand what we understand. We retain an ancient affinity for awe and wonder.

To live happy and fulfilling lives,
We need to act on these impulses.

‍We hear it from without.

The world stumbles from crisis to crisis. The unintended consequences have become the main result. Solving problems of our own making has become society's primary job. This much is clear: our ways aren’t working.

To survive and thrive in a complex world,
We need to brave new ways.

We hear it from the past.

Attitudes and behaviors that reliably led to success not long ago can now cause failure. Older, ancient wisdom is proving more enduring – and suggests that modern minds are missing something big.

To renew our understanding of a fast-changing world,
We need to rethink, reimagine and relearn what we think we know.

‍We hear it from the future.

Everywhere we see horizons that might lead to better worlds. The tension we feel between the way things are and the way things could be is becoming unbearable.

To arrive to a future where we’re actually living better,
We need to challenge those horizons.
