Welcome to Enlivening Edge Magazine Highlights, April 2018!

Are you building a movement? Are you an Ally of Evolution? If you said No, are you sure you’re not?

Many of these articles from March and April are personal stories, possibly a lot like your own, of people who are truly changing the way people live and work. Enough people, with enough connections and enough synergies, become a movement that can become the mainstream.

Welcome to this 17th issue of Enlivening Edge's bi-monthly Magazine Highlights. Our January and February focus was on movement-building. This time we again focus on movement building, now through the lens of Allies of Evolution, the theme of the Integral European Conference in May in Hungary. The Teal Organizations Track there, curated by Enlivening Edge with Next-Stage World, will offer the experience of movements that add up to a Movement, through personal stories of people making a difference.

Dive into a personal interview with one of the track’s curators, to give you the inside story.

The world is aflame with movements toward conscious society; be ignited by this small intrepid group, sharing their story about teaching values to teachers in Venezuela, to reinvent an entire country. Then marvel at such interconnected stories, viewed from a social 36,000 feet, forming the pattern of a movement awakening to its own empowerment for social innovation. 

Meanwhile, the Reinventing Organizations movement enters a new era with author Frederic Laloux’s launch of a new video series of “Insights for the Journey.” You won’t want to miss those.

Below we highlight about 2/3 of the useful and inspiring articles from this Magazine cycle. Be sure to browse the rest

As always, we encourage you to help someone learn from you, by commenting on an article that sparks your interest or curiosity. Even better, begin or enter a conversation that moves the needle.

Looking ahead to our next magazine cycle, we invite you to answer our global call for 300-word personal stories from people in organizations that represent the future, here now. Will you show up as an author, to inspire others like you, who are movement-builders even as they do their daily work? Let us be inspired by unsung stories and heroes, and see ourselves as them.
