Across the world, millions of people are working to create a better place by looking to design a post-pandemic new normal. A new book titled ‘Changing The World We Create’, offers a bit of this, and has been called a “how-to reference guide for change agents, leaders and activists everywhere.” The book is a synthesis of a 10-year research project led by Tomas Björkman. On this episode, Tomas explains how we can collectively change the narrative of what it is to be a human and to set a new course for humanity – beyond climate crises, polarized societies, and failed leadership.
