These days I invited people across the world to three different zoom sessions in three different languages. With this action I kick off the first two year process of globalization of Sustainocracy through a challenging support programme with the School of Talents & Wellness. Such session will be repeated for others who are showing interest in the cocreation programme of a wellness driven sustainable human world.
Participants in the introduction talks joined in from places across the globe, such as Southern California, Washington DC, New York, Mexico, Venezuela Portugal and Gambia. Also people from Ireland, Germany, Benin, India, etc wanted to join but were otherwise engaged at the time of these sessions, had language issues or local problems such as a general power failure, no internet, etc. Also in the Netherlands the position and way of working of the Sustainocrat received increasing interest and participation.
It is of course not the first time that Sustainocracy receives attention from abroad. A letter of intent was signed even with a Chinees province in 2012. Nothing further happened with it but it was a step in the world of recognition. India invited me for a top level conference involving the political and economic hierarchy of the country. Universities and global thinktanks asked me for papers and presentations. I shared podium in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Spain, Hungary, etc…Large global organizations such as Vinci issued awards of recognition. Thousands of students from countries like Turkey, Italy, Belgium, etc visited and were successfully challenged to do something with the core values and cocreation method. Busloads of public officers from Belgium cities come to get inspired in my “city of tomorrow” in Eindhoven for inspiration…
This time the invitation was not just to get the feeling of the impact of societal reasoning from a human resilience and evolutionary progress point of view. It also was an invitation to apply the cocreative way of working and join the School of Talent and Wellness programme of two years that helps those who go for the challenge to reenforce their decision and processes with extra knowledge from many different angles.
These first steps were heartwarming as people were showing their own initiation already in health or awareness driven activities. These could already fit into the programme and further anchor themselves by engaging them as mission within the context of the core human values and togetherness of Sustainocracy. For instance personal yoga efforts can be connected to an overall regional proactive commitment for “care for health” (as opposed to the reactive healthcare). All kinds of initiatives for health development and engagement could for a community and even a “health valley” to unwind people from their stress from work and consumer lifestyles. Gamefullness can be deployed to award people to move around and discover themselves, the history and gain awareness through playful activities. New instruments can be introduced to trigger these engagements and even special award systems can be implemented to make it attractive for people to join. These issues already came along during the introductions and only need to be reenforced and put into practice….
Others who participated represented instruments that could help organizations and institutions transform to become succesful productive and values driven partners in Sustainocratic environments. Such institutional changes based on redefining their positioning in a values driven society require leadership and determination. The day that a local government best practice transforms from cost oriented and money dependent to “who participates?” and shares values created is a step to be made.
