Social media risks for our teenagers

In March this year a group of 29 youth workers from 9 different countries joined us in the Netherlands to discuss this valuable topic. The project is called Techrouters and is funded by the Erasmus+ program of Europe. This idea was to create a toolbox that could help youth workers to address this with the young people, youth organizations and schools in their home country. During on entire week the participants did roll plays, workshops and openly discussed their own experiences.

The toolbox that has been created, with an introduction by STIR about the development phases of our youngsters, can be downloaded here. We would appreciate it if you could add your own experiences and methods to it and share this with us.

Law of Nature manifesto

Worldwide discussions for various years have preceded to get to this video, a first manifest about the Law of Nature. The video elaborates on tipping points, the frontiers between different states of the same matter, the voluntarily of forced (by nature) overcoming of our status quo when circumstances change. You may recognize some statements from Sustainocracy, such as the essence of health. The initiative was taken by Eugen Oetringer, who appears in the video himself as narrator.

Introducing the STIR Learning Academy

Learning through participation we call it. We are all, young and old, people and institutions, challenged to recognized and develop the essential values for our existence as human beings. In the STIR learning academy we formulate this challenge and get people to work on it from their different personal background perspectives. In the Academy we address all fields of attention even though some developed spontaneously as priorities over time within STIR.

The program can be found under the Academy tab of this blog. We don´t want to be yet another educational institution and prefer to be a valuable partner to provide learning contexts to existing educational infrastructures. We also work gladly with learning partners from all over the world in order to contribute to people´s development of skills but also awareness about the broader dimensions of life. Many of our programs are not executed in a classroom. They are performed in open dialogues, open air experiences, health valley services, etc.

We are not interested in just transferring some knowledge. We want to make a difference in people´s lives by developing changes in perspective, understanding authenticity, life essentials and shared responsibilities. People who join our learning programs gradually become part of our Sustainocratic society, not through any kind of indoctrination, by mere opening up to themselves as valuable human centered change makers, entrepreneurs and contributors to the common good.

The STIR learning academy has already existed for over a decade. In fact before STIR was announced in 2009 we already worked on the 4 x WIN entrepreneurship of the 21st century. This is the first time that we bring together all the accumulated knowledge for people to join and put into practice in their home countries.

The living lab of Sustainocracy has been the region of Eindhoven in the Netherlands. Many of the learning offers are therefor conducted in this town. But we also use the network of our partners in the world to do training on specific subjects. In reality, everything is possible as long as one is willing to open up to the mindset of the essential human values and shared responsibility.
