I think the overall story is: our crisis is a birth, and that we are emerging as—potentially—a co-creative, universal humanity. And everyone is needed. And everybody’s creativity is needed.

Barbara Marx Hubbard was an American futurist, author and public speaker. She is credited with the concepts of “The Synergy Engine” and the “birthing” of humanity. She helped introduce the worldview of conscious evolution, calling this an epic evolutionary shift from Homo sapiens sapiens toward Homo universalis, a new human and a new world.

She founded and co-founded various organizations, such as The Center for Integral Wisdom, the Foundation for Conscious Evolution, the World Future Society, the Association for Global New Thought, The Club of Budapest, and Evolutionary Leaders.

Her name was placed in nomination for the United States Vice Presidency on the Democratic ticket in 1984, proposing an Office for the Future to map, track, connect and communicate what is working, and a Peace Room as sophisticated as a war room in the office of the vice presidency.
