Sustainocracy was born ideologically in phases. First (in 1996 and 2005) out of frustration around the lack of humanitarian focus of the ruling system. Placing human wellness in terms of core natural human values at the kernel of societal development opened up a totally new way of thinking and handling. New claims were introduced for societal framing.
When we claim our natural freedom as human being we also need to accept the responsability that goes with it. No one will fullfill our needs but ourselves. No one can do this alone, hence we need to cocreate. With the current state of scientific and technological development we can become selfsufficient in abundance in even the most harsh environments. Sharing abundance among sustainocratic communities can overcome regional shortages. This also introduces a new way of dealing with our institutions…..
So secondly Sustainocracy became a positive invitation to join. Institutions that develop authority in servant partnership with sustainocratic communities created a core values driven identity and related importance for the community in terms of available knowledge, technological innovation, etc. They become expert instruments in the hands of result driven projects…
Money, talents, expertise, involvement, commitment, etc are means that are gathered on common project tables. Noone has more authority than others as the development of the core human values is leading. Equality and trust reigns. Result driven multidisciplinary action unites all into permanent values driven innovation.
In the third phase Sustainocracy became a genuin practical choice, not just an ideology. To go for Sustainocracy we need no permision from anyone. It is a simple choice, as was demonstrated since 2009 with the efforts of the STIR Foundation in the Netherlands. After formulating the option the population and institutions were invited to join. When they did they started their own metamorphose and eventually consolidate the Sustainocratic communities that arise through the authority each brings into the process.
In 2015 the Sustainocratic way of working received public recognition after receiving a European Award and the analytical review in a paper. Now it is subject to PhD research in all fields, mentioned in scientific papers and published in general review papers. Sustainocracy is a new reality that grows in acceptance as an evolutionary step in the evolution of human societal participation structures for sustainable human resilience, progress and wellness.
