    Speaking on How can digitisation benefit democracy and equality, Adam and the other speakers will be exploring 

    The advent of new digital platforms that have the capacity to increase the interaction between citizens and their representatives are expanding as the potential of peer communication, and crowd evaluation is explored.

    With the right design, this has huge potential to broaden the depth of political dialogue and extend and equalise democratic expression. 

    How could digitisation encourage deliberation, spread power and bolster knowledge to enhance democracy?


  • What Now - A momentous leap

    What NOW is a four day year-end conference in Broomfield, Colorado that will help you navigate and explore the era of massive worldwide disruption we now find ourselves in.

    This year Adam Jacoby, Chief Steward of MiVote and founder will be exploring the topic 'innovation in politics'. 

    What is What Now

    When we came together at the What Next conference nearly five years ago, we offered our own bold visions for the future of consciousness, culture, and technology, embracing the notion that we were on the precipice of a major global transition, preparing to take a “momentous leap” forward as a new stage of human development was beginning to emerge around the world.

    Well, the transition has certainly begun. We can all see that we are now heading into one of the most disruptive periods of human history the world has ever known — better and better, worse and worse, faster and faster — and we completely stand by all the hopes and visions that were expressed back in 2012 about our shared future. But few of us could have anticipated just how disruptive and potentially dangerous this transition would turn out to be.

    We still have some pretty strong ideas about what’s next for human evolution, of course, which we will continue to explore. But today, the more urgent question is no longer “what next?”

    It’s “what NOW?”

    In other words, how can we navigate the staggering uncertainty each new day brings, while actively and consciously participating with our own evolutionary unfolding? What can we do to develop the inner resilience and adaptability we need to thrive in this period of disruptive transformation?

    Whether you see our current transition as chaotically spiraling out of control, or laying the groundwork for the next momentous leap in understanding, we thought it was the perfect time to gather the Integral community again to engage with these very same questions, and to find new ways to bring the wisdom of our crowd to a world that so dearly needs it,.
