increasing complexity of our times makes people uncomfortable. People react to
uncertainty by seeking ‘facts’ that corroborate their views and joining others with
similar opinions, creating comfortable spaces or ‘bubbles’. This search
increasingly takes place on-line on social media, which is fuelled by algorithms
and dominant political and commercial parties. This results in strong, self-perpetuating
bubbles that isolates and polarizes groups of populations.
We need to re-connect and re-assess how we and others view the world and learn how to build bridges instead of bubbles. Read more about this in our book Wicked World International edition.
