Every person has authentic talents that make a difference within our sustainocratic movements in the “City of Tomorrow”. It is remarkable how people florish when they get the opportunity to engage and deploy their skills in freedom and equality with everyone else. We realize that every person is unique, with his or her unique contribution to the eco-system that we live in.
When we formulated our 5 core conditions for sustainable progress as guiding principle we automatically abolished the need for hierarchical structures. We introduced the dynamic human clustering around priorities through engagement. Anyone can participate. Any newcomer brings in his or her specific energy and habilities affecting the group(s) as a whole. Each cluster contains numerous entities, from citizen’s to government officials, innovative entrepreneurs, scientists, etc. All primarily get involved as human being, skills and institutions are instruments. No one is more important than the other. Every one is valued for their unique contribution and added value to the process.
The result is impressive. A new human eco-system appears that functions as a powerful contrast to the political economic hierarchy that we got used to for many millennia. Many thousands of individuals engage within the different clusters and create their own abundance to share. The awareness rises in the groups that our cocreative reality is much more powerful and resilient than the structured dependences we created or subdued to before. And it is a choice we can all make.
In the twilight between two different realities it is at first difficult for people (and institutions) to make the choice. On the one hand there is the powerful presence still of the old dominant system that imposes itself. On the other hand there are the guts, determination and trust needed to let go and embrase a new way of life initially full of uncertainties and challenges. As time evolves the choice becomes easier because of the precedents, good example and existing platforms that show the way. People say when they encounter us “it exists, we want this too”. This awareness is the first step. Then two other steps appear:
- The abstract phase to define something concrete: People agree with the Sustainocratic core values, they identify with the level 4 cocreation process but find it difficult to apply it to their own country or region or circumstances. “Can you make it small for me” we often hear. Then we reply “If we do then you’ll be doing the work for us. If you do it then you do it for yourselves”. Once people get the hang of determining their own priorities, step out of the wheel of dependencies and into the arena of shared responsibilities, then the flow really starts. In such stage we can become partners and share best practice, consultancy, networks, instruments, etc while learning from each other.
- When people make up their mind, determine their priorities and come up with a powerful, high impact innovative change program, they tend to come with the question “is this okay?”. We then needed to explain that if it feels right, it contributes to the higher purpose and they stand behind their own choices…. than why ask anyone for permission? Go for it! Flow….
Once people get acquainted with the flow than they cannot be stopped. The new reality is then irreversible.
