intro’d to Daniel here.. when he shared this link in p2p fb group:
beyond sustainable to restorative.. ie; reforesting.. still mindset of man over nature
next.. reconciliatory.. reconcile w nature..
beyond that.. regenerative.. creating cultures that are able to work creatively w disruptions rather than avoid them.. to be resilient to change because change is the only constant we have on this planet..
so moving beyond sustainable to regenerative is key
and key to that.. holmgren indigenous law

We need to initiate culturally creative conversations about what kind of changes to our current economic system are more likely to deliver a thriving and desirable future for our communities and all of humanity
need convers. stop.
if insisting/suggesting abouts.. won’t be for all

“Beyond Sustainability? — We are living in the Century of Regeneration.” by @DrDCWahl https://t.co/uSitlCmhpc(http://twitter.com/RestoreCAL/status/1031595530630049792?s=17)
Regenerative development reveals the latent potential of a place by connecting the system to itself and the scale-linking context it is nested in.
Regenerating the biosphere is an urgent necessity and could turn into a shared vision big enough to bring humanity together in all its diversity
In short, regenerative development aims to optimize the whole system for all its participants rather than maximize individual parameters for a few to the detriment of many.
via daniel fb share.. post from march 11 2018 – the art of common ing
What is held in a ‘commons’ is not to be owned but to be cared for and regenerated so it can be passed on to the next generation in equal or better conditions than the current generation received it in.
The practice of commoning is about relationships and belonging. It is a practice of relating to “others” from within the narrative of interbeing rather than separation. Holding things in ‘common’ invites people to collaborate and share the abundance provided by a particular place and culture, while excessive private (or corporate) ownership creates artificial scarcity and separation, driving us to compete.
These principles (elinor’s 8) basically encourage collaboration and discourage competition by creating a common interest community.
2\ have/need ness
3\ has to be all
5\ assume good
6\ your own song et al
In recent years there has been an upsurge of interest in exploring what a commons-based collaborative economy would look like. Online resources include On the Commons, David Bollier’s News and Perspectives on the Commonsand the P2P Foundation.
We need to learn the art of commoning.
rather.. be quiet enough to hear it.. already in us.. ie: holmgren indigenous law

“Building on Christensen’s work, the International Futures Forum distinguishes a third type of innovation that describes the long-term innovation process of fundamental changes in culture and identity. In the context of sustainability and the transition towards a restorative culture, it is this kind of ‘transformative innovation’ that is particularly of interest to us.
How do we keep the lights on, avoid revolution and turmoil, keep children in school and people in work, yet still manage to fundamentally transform the human presence on planet Earth before ‘business as usual’ leads to run-away climate change, a drastically impoverished biosphere, and the early demise of our species?
Metaphorically speaking we are challenged to redesign the plane we are on in mid-flight. How do we keep the basic needs met while we are preparing and experimenting with the kind of transformational change that will make ‘business as usual’ obsolete and offer a qualitatively different alternative?“
by making sure the basic needs are true basic needs.. then use them as the infrastructure

I just published “‘What if?’ — Scaling-out regenerative development glocally” https://t.co/5OpDX4eAtC
What if we were suddenly enabled to convene conversations, planning and implementation locally and bioregionally to engage in the scale-linking redesign of the human presence and impact on Earth?..t
What if we were challenged to scale-out a glocal (global-local) capacity building and education programme that enables people to learn the needed skills and knowledge while already being an active part of the regeneration rising?..t
imagine everything needed coming from cure ios city
We will have to find those answers and solutions together. And to do so we need a shared overall vision and start to respond so we can learn along the way…t
As I mentioned before, maybe questions rather than answers are the appropriate cultural guidance system — or ‘deep code’ ;-) — in this situation?..t
We need to find this higher ground to see our diversity as a source of vitality, resilience and creativity, rather than a reason to argue, go to war, dismiss and compete..t
So what if the money was suddenly available to engage everyone..t
begs a mech where that money/measure soon becomes irrelevant.. if we want this to be forever and for everybody
Imagine conventing a series of meetings that would explore what needs to be done to skill-up and build capacity for ecosystems restoration and regenerative development everywhere.
why not have the new mech be that we have those gatherings in spaces that matter .. everyday
equity: everyone getting a go everyday
Can we create a list of skilled agroforestry, regenerative agriculture, permaculture design and holistic land management professionals, of analogue foresters and biodiversity experts for every locality, region and biome? So we know who to call on as trainers..t
Can we build the appropriate platforms to enable knowledge exchange, skill sharing, and capacity building through local, regional and global collaboration? So we can co-create a more regenerative and thriving future for all of humanity and the whole community of life (as a planetary process)..t

The commons are about relationships and belonging, about interbeing rather than separation. ..t
She reviewed a number of successful and unsuccessful cases of communities governing a common resource; and identified a set of ‘design principles’ leading to successful collective management of the commons:
- define the community of people sharing the commons
- adapt rules of use to the type of commons and its users
- commoners themselves have to set the rules
- the state of the commons has to be monitored in an accountable way
- abuse by individuals needs to be curbed in a gradual way
— Elinor Ostrom (1990: 185–186)
These principles basically encourage collaboration and discourage competition by creating a common interest community.
yeah.. i don’t think so..
We need to learn the art of commoning..t
indeed.. but commoning begs we go beyond ostrom
As we are aiming to create regenerative cultures locally, regionally, nationally and globally we have to safeguard the remaining commons and re-establish commons-based resource management at various scales. We have to collectively ‘live into’ the important question:
How can the practice of ‘commoning’ offer a scale-linking way to manage the gifts of nature and culture collectively?
David Bollier suggests: “to actualize the commons and deter market enclosures, we need innovations in law, public policy, commons-based governance, social practice and culture..t All of these will manifest a very different worldview than now prevails in established governance systems, particularly those of the State and Market” (ibid).
Would we not create a healthier culture if our economic system was structurally designed in such a way that it incentivised collaborative behaviour and created conditions that made competition unnecessary?..t
Kostakis and Bauwens do not pretend to have definitive answers, rather they explore a number of questions and pathways that might help us build a collaborative economy.
only definitive answer is that what the world needs most is the energy of 7bn alive people.. which begs we focus on augmenting interconnectedness.. via tech/mech that listens to every voice.. everyday.. as it could be..
via daniel fb share (article from 2017): From the ‘crisis of perception’ to the ‘systems view of life’
… The understanding that the common root cause of the multiple crises we are facing is in fact a crisis of perception offers us hope that we will be able to respond before it is too late. It suggests that if we were to employ a different way of thinking to the one that got us into this mess in the first place, we might realize how many interconnected problems can be combined in ways that point us towards a series of interconnected opportunities and systemic win-win-win solutions by addressing root-causes rather than symptoms.
Taking a systems view of life is an important step towards addressing the crisis of perception. Realizing our intimate kinship and communion with the process of life as a whole will trigger a shift in consciousness that will enable us to radically improve the quality of our lives and the health of the ecosystems and planet we inhabit. It will change the ways we relate to each other and the rest of the natural world and allow for the emergence of health as a systemic property linking human and planetary health. …
We might prefer definitive answers and solutions, but what if they simply cannot be given?
Are we chasing a mirage of certainty in a profoundly ambiguous and unpredictable world?..Is the best we can ever do to live the questions more deeply?.. How will the questions we choose to guide us affect the world we will end up experiencing and co-creating in the process?..t
if we were to employ a different way of thinking to the one that got us into this mess in the first place, we might realize how many interconnected problems can be combined in ways that point us towards a series of interconnected opportunities and systemic win-win-win solutions by addressing root-causes rather than symptoms…t
The qualitative emergent properties that make life worth living and sustain life as a whole are not located within one or many organisms, they are distributed across all of these scales as systemic properties of a living and transforming whole in which every participant counts and we all co-create the future.
If we aim to sustain humanity’s common future, we need to learn how humanity can become a positive live-sustaining influence on ecosystems everywhere and the planet as a whole..t.. This is the essence of creating a sustainable and regenerative human culture. By designing our technological, social and economic solutions around the principles of ecology and biology and informed by a systems view of life, we can transform culture so it becomes a restorative and regenerative force.

What is Life? — A Regenerative Community – nov 2019 – 2 min read
Regenerative practice is about unleashing the potential of people in place by listening deeply into the story the land and its people want to tell. It is about finding ways to manifest the unique bio-cultural essence of each locality in ways that meet human needs while enriching and healing the wider biological community we are embedded in.
That is my commitment to the future. That is my practice of repatterining the future in the now: to mindfully practice living as an expression of life as a planetary process; to bring daily awareness to conscious participation in life’s regenerative community.
