For industry, academe and government worldwide

Our human family has always been 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. What we need is wider excellence in perception by every country, every university and college and every corporation on Earth.

Through reflective intensity in small group discussion, we can prototype space-based responses to the brutal universe in which we all live. The new 3×3 Global Drills process enables six people or less at a time to approach such threats in 45-minute periods of deliberation. Through serendipity by design, participants learn from their mistakes through 15-minute debriefings, followed by individual writing of nine-part strategies. 3×3 Global Drills integrates 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 can be customized based on input prior to facilitation.
