Desirable Future 2121

Life is like the universe - everything connects. Guiding values and vision through the life cycle:

  • Individuals
  • Network
  • Connection
  • Co-operation
  • Self-directed responsibility
  • Thinks
  • Encouraging

Key question - how can we learn from our experiences, mistakes and successes

What is the process?

  • You keep going around, until you learn to learn
  • You must change
  • In order to change you must accept your limitations
  • Strive to improve with time
  • What is learning - growing in wisdom?
  • Reflecting on action
  • Important role of education - the learning process


  • A just, ecologically responsible and socially sustainable society giving each individual the opportunity to participate fully in all opportunities society offers
  • The individual is the focus (for development, change etc)
  • Hierarchy of information is data -> information -> knowledge -> perception -> insight -> wisdom
  • The journey of all individuals is to migrate up this hierarchy, in the process affecting government, industry, educational institutions, health, family, justice system, environment, media
  • The above should address learning about mankind's past, collectively
  • We must harness the power of the individual to enable him/her to achieve her/his full potential through individual and collective learning. Giving the individual greater power to make decisions through these processes will maintain progress through the hierarchy
