Resilient Wednesday – Rethinking our Purpose in an Age of Shock

Resilient Wednesdays are co-created by the League of Intrapreneurs and the BMW Foundation Responsible Leaders Network.

Rethinking our purpose in an age of shocks

Rethinking our purpose is people from all walks of life coming together to decide what comes next in our collective journey.
Together we address the big questions of our time.
What is society for? What do we do in a world where major powers like Russia can wage war against other countries? How do we address the extremes of populism? Whose needs come first in a health crisis? What matters most? Can we refuse vaccines? Who knows best? Why is our world still one of the haves and the have-nots? How do we stop climate catastrophe? And everything else we are grappling with.
We meet in the spaces we love in our private lives (our homes, cafes, community spaces, the public square). We talk about our experiences, our shared hopes and how we will make them reality, together. We commit to hear and understand perspectives that challenge our notions. With the aid of a simple dialogue method, we move from “me” to “us”, and from despair to hope and action.

The event is finished.

    Andreea Petre-Goncalves
    President + Co-Founder, Flare Governance

    Andreea Petre-Goncalves is lucky to have spent the last two decades in the pursuit of justice, a good society and lives that are worth living. Her career has taken her from social enterprises to NGOs and the EU institutions. She’s worked on poverty, hunger, sustainability, health and human rights. Her advocacy helped put little-understood problems on the policy agenda of the EU, UN and other international bodies.

    In 2019, with Brexit looming, she had a profound loss-of-faith moment. She began questioning the prevailing approaches to change, and their ability to withstand threats to liberal democracy and to inclusive cultural norms. She moved from London to Brussels and set up Flare, a “think-and-do tank” that makes future visioning possible in real-life spaces, for people from all walks of life. She now dedicates her energy to bringing to life a new societal narrative for our post-COVID future. Andreea is a member of the BMW Foundation’s Responsible Leaders Network, as well as a member of the Global Diplomacy Lab.
