Minnesota Rising

"The future is not out there in front of us, but inside of us." -Macy in Feinstein & Krippner

In studying demographic trends and technological shifts, and crowd-sourcing visions of what's to come for Minnesota, the rising generation could surmise that the future is out there somewhere waiting to happen to us. And yet, seeing signs that our generation has already begun to impact and alter business as usual, we recognize the potential we have to bring about a future that is truly borne of us, our imaginations, and our ongoing commitment to Minnesota.

Our approach honors that the only constant is change, which calls for an emergent style of learning and leadership. Rather than built to last, young Minnesotans now see value in being built to adapt. To be at the ready to leverage what comes our way, we consider it critical to recognize that the future is how:

-how we stay open to learning and welcome new ways of doing things over the course of a lifetime
-how we are kind to and forgive ourselves and others as we trip up along the way
-how we arm ourselves to make wise decisions for the benefit of all
-how we can cultivate satisfaction with less in a culture that increasingly demands more
-how we seek opportunities to include and invest in voices and perspectives that are distinct from our own experiences
-how we shed the belief that we know what leadership looks like (and if you don’t bear a resemblance, you’re not a leader) to allow ever more people and more expansive ways of contributing and giving to flourish

The future is in us, individually and collectively, and is slowly being uncovered in the questions asked, processes undertaken, and relationships formed across the rising generation. Join us in exploring how!


The Collaborative Competence Learning Labs Series is one way that Minnesota Rising supports emerging leaders to be in a state of how. Leveraging competencies of failure, story, and imagination, we provide space for exploring, practicing, and grappling with the skills that will allow our generation lead collaboratively into the future. Join us at the 2014 Un/Conference to participate in the brand-new "Minnesota Rising Inquiry Lab: The Future In the Forum in A Question!"
