Abstract: 
In this talk, I address the big crisis of our time – climate change and the mass extinction event we are living through – by making three suggestions: 1) We are still learning what we are as a species and what we are capable of. 2) We have the means to meet in new relations with ensuing opportunities for cultural change and growth. 3) Our digital technologies have need to follow these lines of enquiry for all our sakes. My title, Framing Wonder, refers to the conclusion I draw, that whether we save or lose the finer points of living, designing so that we give our attention to them can only benefit us.
