The Hague Center for Global Governance, Innovation and Emergence (THC) is co-creating UP convergence (Sep 11-21, 2020) leading to Peace weekend in partnership with Unity Earth and SINE (Synergized Impact Network Exchange). We are initiating, designing, convening and facilitating in several ‘convergence rooms’ which are themed groupings of events running throughout the week.

THC Rooms:

UP&Go Convergence Room
How can we improve large scale collaboration to become a globally self-organized civilization in harmony with Life and Love?
This room is for big thinkers on global systems shifts to connect and take a journey together through the levels of social architecture and come out the other end ready to integrate in more intentional ways … moving towards a meshwork that would be supported by THC.

Meshworking Cities and Eco-regions convergence room
Calling all voices of Cities and Ecoregions – Young and old, Experienced and Novice, rational and heart centered, body and spirit. Join us to co-create a community of practice in service of the places we inhabit.

The Hague Center for Global Governance, Innovation & Emergence exists to help align necessary resources for the current human and planetary transition. This transition is, in its essence, about moving from separation and polarisation, towards coherence and complementarily. This same transition is playing itself out across all sectors — ecology, economy, and governance, to name a few key ones.

We focus on international societal challenges whose complexity requires collaboration between multiple stakeholders. We provide insight into the current condition, and co-design and facilitate transition processes towards better futures.

The Hague Center operates on a global scale, including a network of small centers (in Europe, Egypt, Canada) and partnering with global-scale organizations. THC serves the global community through large-scale projects and local communities through projects designed to meet local challenges.


THC offers consulting services, project manifestation and trainings to guide organizations, cities, countries and groups in new ways of governing and making decisions.

THC offers many social technologies (The World Café, Spiral Dynamics, Systemic Constellation Work, Open Space, Theory U, Appreciative Inquiry, Generative dialogue, Holacracy and Meshworking and others) in order to enable large groups of people to efficiently interact and gain access to their collective intelligence, wisdom and consciousness. Through meaningful constructive dialogue, pattern revelation, and co-creative activities, THC develops new ways that honour the differences and strengthen our interconnectedness are developed.

THC offers: Co-creative processes to experience knowledge, patterns and insights, emerging as new solutions to complex problems.


Don Beck of Spiral Dynamics felt very strongly that the Netherlands was a focal point for emergence, and inspired several Dutch people to start the Center for Human Emergence, NL. THC was a project of CHE/NL and two years ago became its own organizational entity.

Anne-Marie Voorhoeve, Anita Floris, Pieter Wackers, Marianne de Jager and Natascha van den Ban in the Netherlands, Mona Rabie and Aansan Yeh in Egypt, Diana Claire Douglas in Canada, Kara Stonehouse in France and Adrian Iacobus in Romania.


Meshworking is used by both Integral City and THC; Marilyn Hamilton of Integral City describes: “Meshworking intelligence creates a “meshwork” by weaving together the best of two operating systems — one that self-organizes, and one that replicates hierarchical structures. The resulting meshwork creates and aligns complex responsive structures and systems that flex and flow.”
