Collaborating beyond our comfort zones

According to Helga Nowotny, “No human group can survive, let alone effectively cooperate, without being able to develop a shared outlook on the world which is the precondition for acting together.” We are all part of dynamic complex systems that are open, evolving  and unpredictable.
