Through reflective intensity, small groups prototype space-based responses to a brutal universe. The human family is vulnerable to natural forces from within, across and beyond Earth. These include but are not limited to super volcanoes, pandemics of disease and potentially hazardous asteroids on Earth-crossing orbits. 3×3 Global Drills™ allow six people or less at a time to approach such threats in 45-minute periods of deliberation. Participants learn from their mistakes through 15-minute debriefings, followed by individual writing assignments. 3×3 Global Drills™ integrate three broad disciplinary perspectives – cosmic, individual/societal and environmental, with three broad regional perspectives – those of the Asia-Pacific, the Americas and Africa-Europe. The content and number of 3×3 Global Drills™ are customized based on input prior to facilitation.
