    Might your speakers and/or individual members of your division care to have a warm up session a day earlier in our live Caucus to discuss how to design and introduce "Education for Managing Existential Risks of Humanity. This will require a circular economy based on the insights of Elinor Ostrom and system scientists.

    However we no of no institution that teaches how to introduce self-managing polycentric self-governing organizations required for a circular economy. This introduces a reputational challenge for scholars who have made their reputations in researching intrinsically toxic centralized command and control hierarchies favoured by political dictators that dominate modern society.

    As stated in our approved proposal we need to force interdisciplinary cross-fertilization. We would welcome your division forming during our Caucus a breakout group to report back to others how best to achieve our mutual complementary objectives. My co-organisor Sharam Alijani based in Paris and myself based in Sydney Australia would welcome having a zoom chat to discuss how we may best collaborate? The time zones are identified in our attached Caucus description. The first two pages are posted in the program at
