Gitta Peyn, systems researcher and cyberneticist, co-developer of FORMWELT and WELTFORM, founder of the FORMWELTen Institute for Renewing Systems Research and the Larnaca Conferences.Since 1988 she has been working with her husband on systemic and sustainable models, concepts and tools for communication, social and cognitive design and systemic complexity-conscious education and language. With FORMWELT team, she is in the process of building a global platform that empowers all people to systemic communication and education for understanding oriented global collaboration, superintelligent problem solving and human multiresilience.In 2020 she presented what FORMWELT can do for intersectionality and collective intelligence in times of metacrises at the conference "Strategies for transformative global Leadership" organized by the United Nations and the World Academy of Art and Science.With over 30 years of experience as one of the few women in the world, intensively involved in systems and cybernetics research, Gitta has access to a wealth of knowledge concerning multiresilience that is certainly unique in this form.It is therefore particularly important to her to set educational priorities in the direction of "navigation in emergence and metacrises" and to encourage women in particular to free themselves from the usual, patriarchally oriented, concentration on social issues, empathy, therapy and teaching, also in humanities work and systems research, and to courageously dare to take the step of testing one's own intellect at the limits of social tolerability.
