Change, connection, language and your brain

How can we create positive change in the polycrisis? How can we cut through noise, fear, disconnection and uncertainty to orientate people towards positive change, together?

For guidance we can look to the emerging field of Social Cognitive Neuroscience; a cross-domain discipline that explores how our brains influence, and are influenced by, social thinking and behaviour.


We'll explore the fundamentals of change, connection, language and your brain. You'll learn how responses to uncertainty, stress and disruption are deeply ingrained in our evolutionary psychology and how current parallel crises in disconnection and uncertainty are impacting our individual and collective capacities to imagine and create positive futures.

From this perspective, we'll explore why fear and anger-based campaigns further entrench isolation and disconnection and how we can apply language-based strategies to activate compassionate values and re-engage creative thinking, planning and action for positive change.
