The Greater Good Gathering: Technology, Community, and the Greater Good

The mechanisms by which societies govern themselves—how they define, create, promote, and defend the “Greater Good”—will be increasingly refashioned and dispersed, and increasingly “multi-polar,” in the 21st Century. Technological advances are changing the ways that people can aggregate with or separate from others, thus changing the nature of “society” and “government.” The Greater Good Gathering explored the future of public policy and how best to advance the greater good in the 21st century in light of technological innovation, economic disruption, ideological polarization, and governance challenges.
