Social Enterprise for Social Change

Self-supporting strategy for social organizations
22. - 25. May

NGOs and educational institutions are highly dependent on external resources for their activities related to poor people and thus are not able to carry out their objectives when external resources are blocked. As a result the community based organizations are struggling for their survival and their empowerment is at stake.
The four day programme is an intensive course enabling the participants to prepare themselves internally to take up the new challenge. It will explore the internal resources each individual possess and bring out their potentials and that of others in the team.

Visionssuche

Visionssuche

Ritual für Lebensübergänge und Initiation von Jugendlichen
Die Visionssuche, wie sie heute vermehrt durchgeführt wird, hat ihre Wurzeln in der Tradition der amerikanischen Indianer. Die heutige, in der westlichen Esoterik angebotene Visionssuche wurde in den 1970er Jahren von dem Psychologen Dr. Steven Foster und seiner Frau Meredith Little entwickelt. Es handelt sich nicht um die Nachahmung eines konkreten indianischen Rituals. Vielmehr entnahmen Foster und Little drei Elemente indigener Praktiken, um daraus eine neue Form der Visionssuche zu kreieren: 1.Die Methoden Nahrungsentzug, Alleinsein, der Wildnis ausgesetzt sein und Schlafentzug 2.Der Teilnehmer findet Erkenntnisse durch seine Innenschau in der Tiefe seiner eigenen Psyche, er weiht sich selbst 3.Die universale Grundstruktur "Ablösung - Schwellenzeit - Wiedereingliederung" alter Übergangsriten[7]. Inzwischen gibt es unzählige Institutionen und Wildnisschulen die Visionssuchen durchführen. Die Integration in Gesellschafft und Gemeinschaft bleibt aber eine Herausforderung.

Uniorder - The Cooperative Society

Uniorder - The Cooperative Society

Only 3 steps are needed: Step 1: Human Rights – We must declare that we really want human rights for all people on the planet. Step 2: Fair monetary system – To 1st step become a reality we simply must create a fair monetary system, controlled by computers, where the wealth of the individual is proportional to the wealth of society. Step 3: Human resource optimization – In order to have progress, someone must work. Therefore, we must create a computerized social network. There are five simple tasks that anyone can do: Option 1: Do nothing. The cooperative society is inevitable. Option 2: Do not vote for political parties. Option 3: Spread the idea of cooperation. Option 4: Build cooperative communities. Option 5: Demand the government to implement the Uniorder. Discover the answers to these questions: - Why is inevitable to reform society? - Why is technically easy to build a paradise on Earth? - Why are most people not interrested? More on www.uniorder.org
 Uniorder: Urban Paradise

Uniorder: Urban Paradise

Video: https://youtu.be/U7a2zErCeuM Build a urban paradise without money - just changing the structure of society. Only problem: changing human mentality. Step 1: Human Rights – We must declare that we really want human rights for all people on the planet. Step 2: Fair monetary system – To 1st step become a reality we simply must create a fair monetary system, controlled by computers, which guarantees equal access to goods and where the wealth of the individual is proportional to the wealth of society. Step 3: Human resource optimization – In order to have progress, someone must work. Therefore, we must create a computerized social network where everyone is encouraged to help others and be helped by others. So everyone can get the most happiness and productivity. Positive point: "And though no man has anything, yet they are all rich." (Thomas More, Utopia, 1516) Negative point: Is against current mentality. Download instruction manual on www.uniorder.org
