How will we create the "Better Normal" globally? / How will we create the "Better Normal" globally?

起業家や起業を志す人、投資家、研究者等、多様なイノベーター達が集い、繋がり、これまでにないイノベーションを社会に対して生み出すコミュニティ「Venture Café Tokyo」が毎週木曜日に実施するイベント「Thursday Gathering」。
8月6日のThursday Gatheringは世界6ヵ国(日・米・豪・蘭・波・西)10都市のVenture Caféが協力して、史上”はじめて”の取り組みとしてGlobal Thursday Gatheringを行います。

世界的な感染症(コロナウィルス)の拡がり、活発な市民運動など、世界は今グローバルスケールでそのあり方を問われる時代にあります。また、感染症の拡がりによるヒト・モノの移動が制限される状況の中、Venture Café Global Communityは今だからこそ人々、そして地域間を「繋げる」ミッションを果たすべきだと強く信じています。

その上で、8月6日のThursday Gatheringは世界6ヵ国(日・米・豪・蘭・波・西)10都市のVenture Caféが協力して、史上”はじめて”の取り組みとしてGlobal Thursday Gatheringを行います。当日は各地のリレー方式で18時間に渡って30以上のセッションを行う予定です。

Global Gathering全体のテーマは、”Better Normal(より良い正常)”。技術変化や気候変動・感染症への対応、活発化する市民運動など多様なトピックを通じて、単なる”New Normal(新しい正常)”ではなく、未来に向けた希望と共に”Better Normal”について議論を深めたいと考えています。

On Thursday August 6th, join 10 Venture Café locations for the first ever collective Global Thursday Gathering – The Happening! Featuring nearly 30 sessions over 18 hours, we will explore ideas and innovative actions around crafting a better future. (FREE to join)
In the midst of a global pandemic, we believe it is still important to produce quality content, facilitate meaningful connections, and build an engaged community.
Everyone wants to know what the “New Normal” will be after this transformational year, and as a convener of innovators, we want to shift the conversation to ask: How will we create the “Better Normal”?
How will innovators be inspired to action by a devastating global pandemic, the rapid effects of climate change, and a growing civil rights movement? From educational outcomes to equitable housing, corporate culture to climate action, racial equity to pandemic response – so many facets of the world we live in can and will be reimagined. Let’s connect to make a “Better Normal” happen!
