When I started to challenge students in universities or high schools to help me develop a healthy city from their study perpective all kinds of entrepreneurial ideas appear. In the School of Talents we work them out into societal relevance with target community groups. New startup business develop appears as soon as large groups of people start connecting to the persuasive invitaion to do something with their own quality of life.
Healthy city development is just one aspect of Sustainocratic resonance and accountability. If we take all the 5 core conditions then a totally new wave of 100’s of new products and services appear. We even refer to this new kind of entrepreneurship as the 4 x profit paradigm.
School of Talents is not an institution, it is a peer 4 awareness driven cocreative movement. It positions itself in the pioneersphase of a new psycho-social age that is deploying itself among our global citizenship. It is a participative educational format in which students and tutors together experiment with a new reality in four different phase:
- vision: when students and adults get acquainted with the logic of the core conditions for sustainable regional and human progress then visions appear about “how things could or should be”.
- pioneership: visions can be worked out into workable initiatives that have a potential societal impact.
- persuasion: the initiatives are tested among target groups of citizens until a positive resonance is found. Economy is often seen as a trade driven activity of growth but for entrepreneurial pioneers it is a proof of concept. When people are willing to pay for something than it fullfils a need not just an ideological vision, it receives societal support.
- marketing: as soon as a connection is made with the public investment routines then the persuasion phase develops into the traditional marketing activities of businesss development.
At this stage the School of Talents lets go and celebrates the “new ripe apple that falls from the sustainocratic tree”. Schools of Talents are appearing in many places where people find inspiration in the core values and working methods of Sustainocracy. They all form a new age network of global cooperation sharing innovations and best practice among each other.
