Alex Evans – Politics, Meet Psychology: An Exploration of the Places our Inner and Outer Worlds Collide


 
How do we navigate through breakdown to breakthrough?

 

The quest for a better future begins in the places where our states of mind and the state of the world meet. 

 

We’re poised between two futures. One: a breakdown future of chaos, conflict, and collapse. The other: a breakthrough future of safety, restoration, and flourishing. The choice between them starts in our minds – whether we’re able to manage our mental states, at a moment of extraordinary turbulence. Whether we react to people who disagree with us with empathy or enmity. Whether we see ourselves as part of a polarised them-and-us – or an inclusive Larger Us.  

In this talk, Larger Us founder Alex Evans will explore how the interplay between our states of mind and the state of the world is shaping our future and what we can do about it – through work on ourselves, work with each other in our relationships and communities.

About the speaker:

 

 

Alex Evans has previously worked as a special adviser to two UK cabinet ministers, a climate expert in the UN Secretary-General’s office, and campaign director for  Avaaz, the 65 million member global citizen network. He is the author of  ’The Myth Gap’  (Penguin, 2017), an exploration of the importance of collective stories for politics and the future. 

Larger Us is a new network that works for a breakthrough from a them-and-us to a Larger Us world: one in which the ‘us’ we identify with includes 7.8 billion people, other species, and future generations of both. It does this by working to imagine and co-create new forms of citizenship and leadership, above all at the places where our states of mind and the state of the world intersect.
