Democracy and Beyond
Deconstructing Democracy is the first part of an evolving process that seeks to unravel some of the myths and challenges of the democratic system. It has been published on the website www.togetherincreation.org and is available for download as a pdf in order to contribute to new ways of thinking about the history and future of governance.
The second part of the exploration is the work of Eco-Governance. It is not sufficient to resist that which is not working. For healing and transformation, it is essential that we articulate a new form of governance that responds wisely to the challenges and opportunities of our time, and integrates evolving knowledge and wisdom in life-enhancing ways.
As of June 2022 Eco-Governance is now being introduced into the world. Eco-Governance is founded on the notion that the only legitimate purpose of governance is to cultivate the health and vitality of the planet and all its inhabitants for generations to come. Inspired by the rich tapestry of emerging wisdom, Eco-Governance seeks to offer a framework, organizing principles and structure for an innovative and natural way of organizing ourselves as a species.
Since writing this book, Together in Creation has initiated Codes for a Healthy Earth - a whole system framework that directly supports the evolution and implementation of Eco-Governance. You can learn more about co-creating Eco-Governance HERE and join the online global community HERE.
With blessings for the wise transition to a new and healthy form of global Eco-Governance.
