Human Systems is a research network for innovation in human systems (organizational policies, political institutions, economic mechanisms, social technologies, group practices, etc). We look for new human systems which better support participants' agency and life meanings.
During COVID-19, we are mapping the social innovations now emerging. We are gathering new social formats which—even after the crisis—can be used to build a more sustainable and meaning-oriented society. As part of this work, we are finding the most innovative fb/telegram/slack groups sprouting up and running surveys in those communities. We will highlight innovations which drive meaning and agency, and spread them. We are mapping innovations in these areas: First: local volunteer & workforce coordination; Next: scientific collaboration, trustworthy media, online spirituality & play, and talent discovery; Finally: workplaces, social & entertainment venues, and housing communities.
