21st of september: the power of citizens networks

If we want Peace and Sustainability we have to take our responsibility together. Citizens networks are standing up to take action. Action for the environment, our climate, our health and social cohesion, for justice, for peace, for our core human values. These initiatives unite crossborder and have become a powerful force that can not be neglected anymore. During this event we will present three examples.


Evaluation after one year of weekly sustainocratic zoom sessions.

Pandamic based lockdowns worldwide motivated us to go online. Every Tuesday at 16.00 CET we opened the dialogue with any one who wished to join. The framework of the sessions were the core natural human values of Sustainocracy and the invitation to take responsability together to achieve them. Either by creating initiatives together or supporting those of others that fit the 4 x WIN (human, society, planet and financial continuity) ideology.

Today was evaluation time. Just like in all other occasions we can refer to the words of the late Prof. Paul de Blot (Business Spirituality): “everything I planned did not come true”. And we add “because something better happened”.

The general agreement was about continuity. The dialogues were always refreshing and with a great diversity of participants for many cultural backgrounds. We managed to achieve various things together, such as the World Happiness Bird, the Earthday 2021 event, the world radio initiative (still to be developed), 400M+1 revolutions biking for COP26, engagement with Planetary Balance, Earth Odyssey and other global events or initiatives. We reached out to over 20 countries through our open dialogue and positive invitation to participation.

Having said this, september 21st is again an equinox day. It is also the United Nation’s Peace Day. And it is a Tuesday! We will therefore use our 16.00 CET usual time slot to create an online Peace event. It was prefered to do this on zoom.

It was also suggested:

  • to invite more people to the weekly sessions, including young people and people from institutions,
  • to maybe create extra thematic sessions or ones dedicated to particular countries or situations
  • to better use the blogs, videos and publications. Also participate through guest blogging within the Sustainocratic context
  • in general to keep a stable platform for weekly meetings and make it known to more people
  • make use of the actions such as the COP26 biking event and create communication, webinars, etc around it ourselves

The next Tuesday zoom at 16:00 CET (Amsterdam time) for worldwide participation is on September 21st. It is to be seen as the kickoff of a new weekly season and therefor special due to its focus on Peace. Contributions are of course welcome in terms of insights, songs, music, etc.

Join us on September 21st at 16:00 CET

The new age interpretation of a line

A simple line placed in context makes a huge difference.

World Happiness Bird

Last night I had a dream. Lately I dream about mindblowing explanations I do to myself in those dreams. Really nice wake ups follow with interesting revelations to recall. In this particular dream I explained to myself the two interpretations of a line, as a separation or a connection.

The line as a separation

Or diverging spaces. Think of two cultures or countries that border with each other. The border can be seen as a seperation between the two. The relationship can be hostile, separatist, focused on differences. There may be diplomatic relationships but both are self centered and self protective. Cross border trade may develop among the regions even though both maintain a competitive attitude towards each other.

Diverging spaces

In a financially based ecosystem such as our world economy and goverance, the entire institutionalized world consists of such diverging lines. The divergence gets more and more aggressive when…
