REVISION is catalyzing systemic change from the perspective of a successful future.
Modernity has failed us. A financial system hostile to life became an end in itself. New technologies are emerging faster than our ideological capacity to understand their systemic implications. Extinction looms from all sides, while we are losing sight of what it means to be human in the increasingly complex social organization of today. How to constructively think beyond the limitations of immediacy and find narratives that mobilize us from the perspective of a successful future?
We urgently need new systems for transitioning into a present that is free from the threats of a dystopian future. REVISION merges social innovation with emerging technologies and catalyzes rapid systemic transitions▶▷► through federating individual change-agents, institutional representatives, and organizations.

SPECULATION ➫ ACTION
The NETWORK is a growing body of the best systems thinkers, entrepreneurs, designers, researchers, developers, artists, scientists and policy-makers. The members of the global network organize under specific domains or around specific projects, form CIRCLES, participate in domain specific workshops IRL and URL and are invited to contribute to the open repository of systemic change methodologies, a publicly available commons-based knowledge base.
REVISION enables individuals and organizations to achieve their greatest aspirations through fostering collaboration and turning speculation into action.

CIRCLES are domain-specific research groups that foster collaboration between independent change-agents and organizational representatives through year-round research and shorter design sprints.
REVISION provides infrastructure for facilitating design sprints and CIRCLES (think-and-do tanks) through offline and online platforms. Our international network consists of over 1500 experts and organizational representatives.
There's no common ground
The REVISION SUMMIT is an annual offline event that provides a platform for the REVISION NETWORK members to engage in public debates and initiate transformative action.
We are doomed. Change is possible.
REVISION exists to enable collaborative action and produce future narratives where we all collectively thrive.
