Coming Together for Joyful Impact in a World of Extremes

Uncategorized Nov 03, 2021

In a world of increasing extremes, communities really count. 

Communities can give us a sense of purpose and meaning.  They can help us tackle challenges that are bigger and more complex than anything we can take on by ourselves.  But communities can also break under stress, or lure us into further polarization and extremes.  So how can all of us who have a calling to make the world a better place harness the power of communities to be a positive force for change in a world of increasingly existential challenges?    

This video explores this question, building on the ideas about anti-fragility we explored in a previous post.   Anti-fragility goes beyond resilience--it's about getting even better, even stronger in the face of challenges.  The more unstable the world around us seems, the more important it is for all of us with a calling to make the world a better place to lean into our own anti-fragility as individuals, and in the communities of practice where we gather to do our work.

 Check out the video for more on these ideas, including how we are trying to incorporate anti-fragility into what we are building with the  "Joyful Impact" community through our accelerator programs for social entrepreneurs, philanthropic staff and advisors as well as our work with individual donors and aspiring change agents of all kinds
