An Unprecedented Team-Building Approach to Social Sustainability
Our global civilization is dangerously unstable, not only because of dire environmental threats, but because our social institutions are unsustainable at every scale—from family life to national politics to global governance. But a new mode of living is rising in the ashes of the old, one that regards the social aspect of sustainability as the crucial factor. Healing a Broken World introduces an unprecedented method for creating social sustainability, one that offers new hope for building a world that survives and thrives into the distant future.
This book is for far-seeing ordinary citizens who are ready to accept the thrilling challenge of designing functional institutions for this new era. It introduces for the first time methods of invoking celestial guidance to support this vital work, along with novel techniques of building cocreative teams whose work can be validated cross-culturally.
With this manual, you will learn how to assemble and organize a social sustainability design team, and then begin to use the three core values of social sustainability to reinvent new designs of any human institution of any size and type. Remarkably, those solutions that lead to our sustainable future will begin with each of us at the local level—that is, in every local community, anywhere in the world, that chooses to participate in the grand mission of building a socially sustainable world.
