In this keynote address, Integral Life CEO Robb Smith puts the tumult of 2017 into historical perspective and looks ahead at the “momentous leap into the transformation age” that he believes is underway right now. Taking a long view of history, evolutionary dynamics, culture and economics, Robb argues that we’re at the peak of a Green, pluralistic global operating system, with Orange modernism slipping into our rearview mirror, and Teal integralism just beginning to emerge, holding all the promise of overcoming the evolutionary contradictions that gave rise to populism and leaders like Donald Trump.

Robb’s keynote video is available above for free, but you will want to become a member of Integral Life to watch the Q&A with Jeff Salzman.

In the follow-up Q&A to his keynote (available to Integral Life members) Robb Smith sits down with Jeff Salzman to respond to various questions posed by his view of a momentous leap into the transformation age. Though only enough time for brief discussions on the broad scope of topics–from climate change to the American dream to countering populism–in the discussion you’ll hear Robb’s reminder that it’s very easy to get stuck in a certain kind of present-oriented myopia: one that both forgets the progress of the past and ignores the amazing progress to come if we take seriously the challenge of building a resilient society.
