Where do the cards come from?

The cards are based on the book Going Horizontal: Creating a Non-hierarchical Organization One Practice at a Time.

Each storytelling card is one of the key domains of living, working and organising: autonomy, purpose, meetings, transparency, decision making, learning and development, relationships and conflict.

The listening lenses are in fact key elements of healthy and conscious collaboration. They can help reveal some subtleties that are going on that we might not notice.

The purpose of the game is to strengthen our consciousness of our social practices of togetherness. This is how we might create a more equitable and sustainable world.
