New society, new claims, new perspectives

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.

This claim cuts us loose from dependence of financial, political and material dominance, motivating us to work freely with our natural environment directly for our health, safety and basic needs.
This claim introduces our own responsability for our own sustainable wellness and progress

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…..

A new positioning of institutions including government makes such entities not financially focused but recognized expertise oriented.

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…

Dominant are the core human values, not financial investors. Return on involvement is in terms of shared values and recognised expertise, not money. A totally new economy arises.

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.

The metamorphose from our global capitalist reality, that provided us with great instruments once placed in the sustainocratic context, demands a great leadership effort at all levels of society. The reward is a new balanced relationship with ourselves, our institutions and our planetary resources, as well as sustainable human resilience and wellness for all.

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.

Robotlove and Sustainocracy

Robotlove opens today as a 10 week event that questions our relationship with robots in general and opens up the dialogue on our dependence on technology. Are we being run by robots or are they there to helps us live a better life?

This is a fundamental discussion that also concerns us at City of Tomorrow while we consider our integral human resilience or lack thereof as we use systems to serve and destroy us. In essence our transformative initiatives hook on well with this. For instance the issue of food and our dependence of the economic system to access our primary needs. FRE2SH is our city farm initiative that unites about 30 different companies, production, food innovation, research, food processing, restaurants, etc into one food resilience circular eco-system. It is not a surprise that RobotLove decided to work with us for the catering of 400 volunteers as crew and 90.000 expected visitors.

We prepared salades, wraps, mexican tortillas, sweets and even city brewed special beers for the event. We also registered volunteers through our COS3I social inclusion activities. Sustainocracy is not just a theory,  it is put into practice as well. We are one big new world family!

 

 

Robot love

In Eindhoven, between september 15th 2018 and december 2nd, we expect up to 50.000 visitors to the exposition and open debat about robots in our human lives.

STIR Foundation (City of Tomorrow) has partnered with the Robot Love organisation with a variety of objectives:

  • Contribute to the discussion from the Sustainocratic perspective of core natural and human values as well as the human complexity model,
  • Use the impact of such a big event in the regional development plans of the local population,
  • Assist with the food supply and catering through our FRE2SH city food production and partnership organization,
  • Develop together the social inclusion and innovation potential of the event for people in process of re-integration, migration, expats and other COS3I target groups,
  • Offer open podium to our School of Talents and international partners for participative learning activities and the organization of events of our own within the context of this platform
