Next Generation Educational Conscious Leadership Platform and Global Network
Explain your project in details:
The purpose for the platform is to prepare the next generation of conscious leaders for them to cocreate a sustainable and flourishing world. It will be a new framework for personal, societal and business thriving for the next generation of leaders to bring about positive change and sustainable, social and environmental outcomes. This will enable the next generation leaders to transform and create more sustainable forms of organisations with the support of one and other and the guidance from those with experience. The projects platform will facilitate the next generation leaders globally to collaborate in bringing about the changes now needed in the world for the benefit of society and planet. They will have access to research, know-how, guidance, training, and resources to support them in their work. It will be a self driven platform where the next generation learn and share experiences, knowledge and their visions and work together on projects where they can apply conscious principles and practises to more rapidly bring about positive change in the world. The platform will support the formation of live, like-motivated groups around the planet and for them to be connected online to one another and to support and resources. It will raise the collective consciousness of young leaders as well as funnel the conscious change into an actionable global movement. Our activities and culture will be shaped by the principles of Conscious Business. Conscious Business is a model for us to come together to evolve and flourish, leading lives infused with passion, purpose, love and creativity- creating organizations where people can fully give their best in contributing to a world that works for all. The organising body will be a foundation to bring together principles and practices for bringing about positive and sustainable change.
Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development
To date three key partners have joined as advisers to the foundation giving their support to its formation and to the construction of the platform, its board of management, strategy, content and roll out. To support this project it has the support of: The Conscious Business institute http://www.consciousbusinessinstitute.com The Humanity’s Team https://www.humanitysteam.org The professor of Future Studies, Markku Wilenius http://markkuwilenius.fi This project enables rapid sustainability progress to be made because: 1. Practises that work can be shared instantly internationally. 2. Resources and people can be allocated to where the greatest sustainability can be achieved. There is a growing network of leaders of companies such as the Container Store, Patagonia, Medtronic, Costco, Trader Joe’s, and Whole Foods Market, that have built their companies based on the principle of conscious, sustainable development. These companies are pioneering examples of how to flourish by supporting flourishing of society and planet. I have completed my bachelor's thesis on understanding their practises and these I will share via the platform to the next generation leaders. All the next generation leaders will be sharing their results of their projects with one and another to help enable them all to succeed in achieving their sustainability goals.
Sustainability and future plans
Business Model: not-for-profit foundation led by Conscious Leaders, who hold the vision, see what needs to be done and in what order and who guide the next generation of leaders. Around the center of the foundation are the members who are the next generation of leaders, their support-providers and selected conscious companies. The support-providers provide education, training, mentoring and access to resources and the companies provide funding, facilities, physical resources, network/contacts and work and project opportunities. Teams of next generation leaders are formed and re-formed around projects to address local and global sustainability priorities. I am now seeking expressions of interest from people and organisations who wish to support the growth and development of this project.
