BCSSS President Alexander Laszlo and Managing Director Stefan Blachfellner contributed to the Ecocivilisation talk series with their valuable insights from a systems perspective. “The Roots of Civilisations” talk discusses learnings from the past, exploring:

  • the basic definition of what the civilisation is, its roots of the concept
  • what has contributed to their rise, glory and fall
  • how can we sense their emergence
  • which are potentially the leverage points that could help us imagine what comes next
