Regenerating Democracy in the USA with Josh Silver

The 2020 Election and the January 6th capitol insurgency has forced us all to recognize the fragile state of democracy in the USA and ask what it needs to be regenerated and restored. However, for Josh Silver, Founder and Director of RepresentUs, none of this was a surprise. It is a result of 50 years of deepening system failure that fosters extremism, corruption and gridlock. In this Design Sprint we will explore regenerating democracy in the USA from a post-partisan, long-game, complex systems perspective.

What are Design Sprints?

At nRhythm we recognize that the complex issues that we face today — inequity, climate change, food security, drought, desertification — are design issues. It’s time for a re-design. 

 

Using living systems as inspiration and nRhythm's Regenerative Framework, we talk to leaders across a variety of industries about re-imagining the systems we are a part of and what shifts need to take place in order to inspire and ignite systems change locally and globally.
