DON’T TRY TO CHANGE THE EXISTING MODEL.
BUILDING A NEW ONE THAT MAKES THE EXISTING ONE OBSOLETE.
The role of social entrepreneurs as the change makers towards a world that works for everyone.
COMMON MEMBER, CHRISTINE MCDOUGALL
ABOUT THIS COMMONAR
We are either rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic or we are building a new boat. The problem is we may think we are building a new boat when we are actually rearranging deck chairs.
In this Commionar we will look at the structures that underpin our current operating system, many of which we do not question. Our systems of governance, legal entities, finance mechanisms, economic models, how we co-ordinate human activities, hire people, educate.
If we want a world that works for Earth and all its creatures we must know the current system. We can then make sovereign choices about how we may or may not participate in it.
What is required to build a new boat? What will be the costs of doing this? Of not doing this? How do we do this elegantly? Where does the true power lie? In knowing the game that is being played on us a world of possibilities open to us. We can be the change.
