Voices from 2020, Vol. 3, Published October 7, 2006. In this the third podcast in our “Voices from 2020” series, our intrepid time travelers FireHawk and Bill Veltrop once again visit an ideal year 2020, this time to interview Tom Atlee, who for many years has been one of this planet’s most articulate champions of our potential to turn our social and environmental challenges into positive developments for our society. Tom is a founder of the Co-Intelligence Institute. His 2003 book, The Tao of Democracy: using Co-Intelligence to Create a World that Works for All, introduced us to what it takes to tap into our capacity for wise democracy. In this interview Tom reveals how, in 2020, we have collectively begun to awaken, not only to face up to our various global challenges, but also to learn how to use the energy of global crises to fuel our conscious evolution as a people. His stories reinforced the importance of societal feedback loops as advanced by Gil Friend and Jeff Saperstein in our second Voices from 2020 podcast. He also highlighted the role played by some pioneering corporations in actively supporting our moving toward social and environmental wholeness.
