If you could make a change—any change you wanted—what would it be? Would it be something in your organization or your industry? Maybe something it’s in your community or throughout society as a whole? Creating true change is never easy. Most startups don’t survive. Most community groups never get beyond small local actions. Even when a spark catches fire and protesters swarm the streets, it often seems to fizzle out almost as fast as it started. The status quo is, almost by definition, well entrenched and never gives up without a fight. I was MC at the fifteen seconds festival in Graz, Austria and I was joined on stage by my friend and bestselling Author, Keynote Speaker and Innovation Advisor Greg Satell. Greg suggested the topic: How to Save the World From AI. This is that conversation. After the panel, Phaedra asked about using humour to lower resistance to change. Greg suggested laughtivism.
Here is a video about laughtivism with Srdja Popovic: https://youtu.be/dAiDviKqWZI
