Event description
Warm Data Labs are ideal for raising the level of questions about and understanding of a complex issue.

About this Event

WARM DATA LAB: WHAT IS REGENERATION IN A CHANGING WORLD?

The problems the world is facing now, including climate change, poverty, species loss, political upheaval, and even health epidemics, can all be described as complex, that is, they are being driven by multiple causes and those causes are interrelated. This complexity vexes the traditional problem-solving model of separating the problems into pieces and solving for the symptoms.

The very nature of complexity undermines the familiar mandate to define goals and strategies to achieve envisioned solutions. Climate Change is not a stand-alone issue, nor is the refugee crisis, or the ecological degradation of the soil. These issues are wrapped in contextual interdependencies that require an entirely different approach in assessment and action. If we do not shift our level of thinking these problems will continue to escalate, causing suffering and extinction of living systems, possibly including humanity.

Join us on February 23rd to experience a way to think our way through our assorted messes to a thriving future.

Rather than focus on solutions, Warm Data Labs encourage a group to make better sense of complexity by exploring different perspectives and contexts. Through this understanding participants develop new perspectives, questions and insights on the issue. The labs are very simple to attend, even though they’re underpinned by deep theory, and as a participant you don’t need previous exposure to systems theory. During the lab you’ll move through a living kaleidoscope of conversations which will generate cross-contextual knowing.

WHAT IS WARM DATA?

The majority of current scientific research tools and methodologies pull "subjects" from their contexts in order to derive detailed, specialized, quantifiable information. The cultural habit of decontextualizing information, or reductionism, is the standardized, authorized, and empirical norm.

By contrast, "Warm Data" is a specific kind of information about the way parts of a complex system (e.g. members of a family, organisms in the oceans, institutions in a society or departments of an organization) come together to give vitality to that system. Rather than describing only the parts, warm data describes their interplay in context. For example, to understand a family it is not enough to understand each family member, the relationships among them must also be understood - these relationships are part of the warm data.

REGENERATIVE CULTURE CATALYSTS

We are a community of practitioners supporting each other to do the inner and outer work that allows us to inspire, manifest, accelerate, nurture, facilitate, stand for, midwife and dream a future of alive, healthy and regenerative organisations, communities and societies.
