Publications about the introduction of Sustainocracy and our experiences after 13 years of developing this society model based on core human values

In an attempt to write a book about Sustainocracy and our experiences over the years I found it difficult to not fall into the repetition of arguments that have already been covered in other publications. These arguments are however important to understand the context in which Sustainocracy arose as a new mindset and societal approach. On the other hand I understand that there are plenty of people that have already been made acquainted with these details. For them it may be more interesting to see why particular communities were born our of the STIR development and what process they encountered to deploy themselves. Instead of a book I decided to write articles on the different topics that each had their own very special development. When one introduces and overarching mindset, a way of developing shared responsibilities that differ from the mainstream where we come from, one gets in touch with literally everything in society. I have divided the articles into five different groups sofar:

1. General (our core human values, shared responsibility, 4 x WIN entrepreneurial spirit and Sustainocracy)

The core natural human values

Entrepreneurship of the 21st century

Smart cities are healthy cities, healthy cities are smart

2. AiREAS (air quality and health)

AiREAS phase 1 – http://link.springer.com/book/10.1007/978-3-319-26940-5

AiREAS phase 3 – http://link.springer.com/book/10.1007%2F978-3-319-45620-1

3. FRE2SH (food self sufficiency)

FRE2SH experiences of developing regional food self sufficiency

4. COS3i (social inclusion)

COS3i, social inclusion into our core human values

5. School of Talents & Wellness (Participatory learning)

Experiences with a new learning system

More publications are to follow, also coming from the research students that get engaged through the different topics. I will try to include them in the diversity of topics that all hang under the umbrella of STIR and Sustainocracy. The publications will be on Springer, Researchgate.net and Academy.edu. They will also be added to the list of publications on this blog. If you wish to comment on any of the publications please feel free to do that either to me through jp@stadvanmorgen.com , via de academic sites or via this blog. We also organize open dialogues in town (Eindhoven) and online if of interest.

Masterclasses are available in 2023 on AiREAS, FRE2SH, Sustainocracy, 4 x WIN Entrepreneurship and COS3i.

Sustainable city and business development, inspired by a tree

Living nature has been taking care of the regenerative sustainability of life for over 4 billion years. It is a source of unlimited inspiration on how to deal with our resources, entrepreneurship and sustainable regional development. In our worldwide online discussion on August 25th 2022, we take a tree as source of inspiration. The discussion is part of our online training course about regional self sufficiency and food resilience. This FRE2SH training consists of 10 modules that are being deployed one per month.

Dr. Francesca Zampollo, director of our Online School of Food Design, partner of FRE2SH

Our current cities are black holes of consumption, competing among each other for the limited resources that are needed for themselves and their populations. City management is often tunnelvisioned in the political financial model of dependencies. We take city councils on the path of local regenerative, non competitive resilience, by looking at the functioning of a tree.

For the 25th of August at 16:00 CET, we have invited three experts with totally different backgrounds. If you wish to join the online Safari please register here for free.

Multidimensional Entrepreneurship

In 2011 I published a book about modern 21st century entrepreneurship, called Multidimensional Entrepreneurship (MDE). It deals with the five key principles of entrepreneurship and many other things that I addressed as coach and consultant between 2004 and 2009. Due to all my effort in establsihing my own MDE with the City of Tomorrow I kept delaying the promotion of the book until it was forgotten all together. Until today!!

It is more current than ever and maybe that is why it has been collecting dust for over a decade. Today many new age entrepreneurs may benefit from the steps and insights brought forward in the book. It is available a Ebook through Lulu.com:

ISBN: 978-1-4476-0356-6 – Author: Jean-Paul Close

Feedback is always welcome if you decide to read it. The little royalties go into the STIR Foundation to further develop Sustainocracy.
