The UNDP Innovation Facility invites you to a brown bag lunch on Transforming Capitalism: Acupuncture Points and Mindset Shifts with Dr. Otto Scharmer of MIT.
We see emerging changes in several sub-systems of economies such as cradle-to-cradle design and circular economy concepts; basic rights for natural resources or complementary measurement framework for sustainability and human well-being. But what is missing is a systematic connection between the emerging concepts.

Join this talk with Dr. Otto Scharmer, Senior Lecturer in the MIT Sloan School of Management and founding chair of the Presencing Institute, to learn more about:

  • Which acupuncture points provide us with opportunities to redefine economic paradigms?

  • What global platforms are emerging to connect different emerging threads and movements?

  • Why is a shift in our collective mindsets key and what is Theory U?

Dr. Otto Scharmer will provide an overview of the essentials of Theory U and share reflections on transformative innovation for sustainability and human development.
