From climate change to diseases to societal inequity, the challenges facing humanity today can only be solved by a paradigm shift. While considerable progress has been made solving these pressing problems through the current tools and methods, we have put little regard into the long-term negative effects and thus created a set of new, interconnected, and complex problems. Joi Ito argues that solving these problems will require bringing about a fundamental change in practice or thinking by using the Internet and advances in science and technology. In this program, Joi shares his insights into the new theories and methods to tackle these problems, and explores real-world examples of implementing change.
