Yesterday in Ahohabar was the “get together” before that the official start on the Third Living University can begins today October 23, 2017…
Today will be about uniting the Core Group (participants attending the full 5 days) to learn to know each other in order and start co-organising, co-creating and co-realizing their interactive learning process – learning by doing together and from each other.
This time though, there is an innovation. Sure, the University is still organized as a LIVING one (of course – by definition – see my former announcements and updates). But for the first time we are also opening up to allow a number of interactions with and from outside.
We call it an additional breathing feature.
Indeed the program is designed as a succession, over 5 days, of 5 closed and 8 open sessions. Plenty of opportunities thus to bring fresh air inside the core group. Also plenty of opportunities to allow outside innovators for the common Good – mainly coming from Rotterdam, its province Zuid-Holland but from further away, beyond even the Netherlands to come and interact with the CORE GROUP
This OPEN feature could NOT be organised in the two previous editions (First one in El Hiero –Canaries – and second one in Las Gaviotas – Colombia). The reason: the remoteness and the size of the places where they took place.
Rotterdam is worthy of Innovation, is it not? So we organise his OPENNESS for the first time in Rotterdam
How is it designed?
Firstly: This evening there is the Blue Economy Night. It is open to all. It is fully booked/
Then we’ve created 8 further possibilities: 4 MORNING DEEP DIVES and 4 EVENING DINNER JAMS
They are open to all. And they can be booked at the last moment. Is this not worthy of a living process? The content also is LIVING since it will also be decided in real time – so as to be constantly adapted to the interactions immediately preceding them.
In other words, this breathing is the autopoïetic process that lies at the very core of life and of the new science at the basis for ZERI’s thinking and action – applied to the living University Design.
Who can attend?
- Those who are -, or
- (2) are on their way towards becoming-, or
- (3) want to engage on the way of becoming:
“entrepreneurs for the common good”.
No need to be in business for that. Entrepreneurship for the common good is open for everyone, in every corner of society at large, from very young, to very old: Everyone really…
We believe indeed that only if more people (i) engage in becoming “masters of their life”, (2)see that everything is interconnected, (3) that is has no meaning to maximize a part (more often than not done at the detriment of another part – externalities) and (4) that hence value, sustainability and resilience lies not in the parts, but in the quality and strengths of the connections, interactions, relations between the parts; That then the conditions will exist for our world to change for the BETTER and the GOOD
This was it for now: I have to run to be in time to join my learning buddies at Blue City
