In response to the existential crisis we are facing, 3rd Space offers a diversity of new perspectives. New ideas for critical times. We believe the metacrisis of today cannot be solved by a form of thinking that reduces life to a mechanical process.
3rd Space focuses on alternatives. Different ways of thinking, being, and doing. Innovations and ancient wisdom that disrupt the status quo, challenge our assumptions, and nourish our souls. Our aim is to provide a space for thinking, relating and creating beyond ideologies.
We do this through articles, interviews, videos and podcasts with thinkers, visionaries, activists, and culture hackers from around the world. We highlight non-western philosophy and indigenous thinking for the unitive perspective they offer.
We host intercultural communication and offer ‘immersive journeys’ – an opportunity to spend time interning in projects in Asia and Africa, discovering other civilisations from the inside.
The urgency of current global realities is prompting emergent voices: new ways of thinking that seek to transform our global culture and systems.

3rd Space explores different forms of sensemaking in the world – both contemporary and ancient. We see voices from the global south, such as those from India, Africa and South America, as critical to the conversation. The understanding of ‘being-based’ existential principles embedded in non-western cultures; their fluency in the symbiotic nature of living systems; their traditions of decentralisation and communitarianism; their knowledge of the ‘interbeingness’ of all life, are essential contributions in addressing the current challenges we are facing.
For a systemic change to take place in our societies, we believe a radical shift in mainstream consciousness is required. This means a shift from our fragmented and mechanistic perception of the world, to one that recognises the interdependent and participatory nature of the Universe itself.
