WE WANT TO MAKE OUR CONTRIBUTION

HOW CAN WE ADDRESS THE MOST PRESSING SOCIAL CHALLENGES PRESENTED IN THE LAUDATO SI’ ENCYCICAL LETTER?

We live in times of triple crisis: climate change, poverty and disillusion. We recognise that addressing these challenges requires not only technological invention and intervention, but a shift in our very cognition.  Being open to ways of knowledge is the reason of reason, a movement beyond our usual habits and practices.  It requires an uplift in our collective journeys, where we seek new paradigms that assure, articulate and ignite the three strands of sustainability, justice and equity.

“No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it”. – Einstein

We believe that the size of the problem has outgrown linear or singular initiatives, rendering such approaches useless.  Shift will come when addressing challenges as systems.

The call is to expand the frontiers of what we know and recognize that if society as a whole is to address global challenges, it has to find new ways of thinking, deciding & acting.

New thinking is in demand !  

But where can we find that “new” knowledge? Even when the pace of innovation has increased exponentially, we don’t have enough time to wait until complete new thinking models emerge; it could take year, decades or even centuries for it mature.  Where do we get this new thinking from in the meantime?

Could there be knowledge out there that we have overlooked? Could there be pockets of practices that we simply don’t see? Could there be alternative thinking models that we simply don’t understand?

We answer these questions with a bold yes and that we might find the answers closer than we think. Expect the unexpected.

OUR VISION

We believe to have found sources of knowledge that can help us with the big challenges and that we can convene a stellar team to unearth that knowledge. They are certainly unlikely candidates for a race of this importance. But the more we think about this, the more evidence we find to demonstrate that the knowledge, skills and lifestyles we seek are already available in the margins of our societies, our cities and even our consciousness.

The first group is the indigenous populations of the many native communities across the globe. The second group is the poor, the marginalised sector of society, the “have nots”. The third group is a selection of Western Leaders in business, government, NGOs, faith & international organisations, who recognise the need for change.

OUR MISSION

WE EMBARK ON A MISSION TO FIND

SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY

Knowledge in science & technology which can help revert climate change to open a new era of scientific, cultural and technological inclusion

ALTERNATIVE LIFESTYLE PRACTICES

Alternative lifestyle practices moving away from over consumption and waste to offer hope and perspectives to those who lack them

THINKING MODELS

Thinking models that revisit perceptions of prosperity and wealth and develop new ways to  understand  resources,  interact with nature and  relate to each other

OUR ACTION PLAN

We have developed a three-pronged systemic intervention model that works across the various groups and challenges simultaneously. It creates the conditions for change, delivers tangible outputs and is scalable.  We are refining a series of blueprints and actions plans. And the most exciting of all, is that not only we – but many of our supporters – believe that this initiative could create a ripple effect of significant impact.

Stone Soup certainly constitutes a titanic plan, but suggest a viable mode of thinking, acting and living aligned with the demands of our time. We present our work with the belief that what drives us goes beyond us and trust, that together we can take good care of our Common Home.

JOIN THE MOVEMENT TODAY

We are ready. The world is ready. The planet can’t wait.

Let’s start doing, today.

And whilst we might not have answers for every single question, we are confident we will find them while we walk.
