About

Transform the System is a new project intended to support a global-scale movement.

We are concentrating on holistic and "integral" projects and are particularly interested in organizations concerned with "well-being" and the new economy.

CRITERIA FOR INCLUSION

What are we looking for?

  • Is this organization holistic?
  • Does this organization have a global or broadly inclusive perspective?
  • Is this organization co-creative?
  • Does or can this organization work with groups outside their main sector?
  • Does this organization follow an ethic guided by wholeness or well-being?

INTERACTION OF SECTORS

How do sectors influence one another and work together?

  • Economy (well-being for all people)
  • Religious / spiritual / ethical (support a common or global ethic regardless of tradition)
  • Ecological/environmental (follow a balanced view for protecting the environment)

DEVELOP A COMMON MULTI-SECTOR ALLIANCE

What do these organizations share?

  • Similar guiding ethic of the whole
  • Guiding value of "well-being for all"
  • Share overlapping interrelated motivations -- covering all sectors

DIMENSIONS OF TRANSFORMATION

What changes do these organizations and this alliance hope to accomplish?

  • Political activism -- changing law -- exerting influence on legislation
  • Organizational transformation -- changing organization practices
  • Personal transformation -- encouraing more holistic practices in individuals

Defining common ground and "shared purpose"

We are experimenting with concepts of "shared purpose", where organizations can go through a substantial list of motivations, purposes, goals and values, and itemize their particular perspective and interests in fairly fine-grained detail.

That same list of options is available to all participating groups, which makes it possible to define the common ground among participating groups with a fair degree of precision.

Transform the System is connected with some related "sister" projects developing related themes and running on the same database.
