Setting the Sustainocene

On this day 2nd July 2013 let it be known that, thanks to browsing a few harmless tweets this morning, and building on my recent NIRES Sustainable Water sandpit (blog post promised), I have my new ten year plan, a new optimism and determined enthusiasm towards the benefits, outcome, vision (call it what you will) that is:


To facilitate, attract and amplify Homo narrans  (the storytelling human) into the emergent future that will  be known as the Sustainocene.


This is undoubtedly a complex task and I am going to need more than my trusty cynefin framework for this task.


All it needed was these three previously unrelated metaphors to come together , which in hindsight seems obvious.


This means changing every behaviour, action and creative idea towards the benefits of a sustainable Earth, one bit at a time (or rather many safe-to-fail experiments in parallel).


Helping the emergence of a narrative landscape, collaborative climate and creative environment within knowledge driven – open innovation ecosystems.


Lets throw everything we know about storytelling influencing childrens career paths, sense-making, creative problem solving, managing knowledge, step-change open-innovation, appreciative inquiry, ritual dissent, agile and kanban etc etc.


Anyone out there interested … ?
