January Week 2: Co-Creating And Culture Overview
Overview And Objectives
When we think of culture, we generally think of it as being something fixed. Sure there are conflicts and ups and downs but because culture builds and maintains institutions and they have longevity, we can think of culture as having permanence.
In reality, cultures have changed many times over the centuries and are a part of the development of the co-creating skill in humans. The process of developing these co-creating skills through time has been a laborious process and one we benefit from. Our cultural history may require that we forgive many things but it can also serve as a resource as we continue to develop our co-creating capabilities.
This week we are going to take at the relationship between co-creating and culture.
