THE BLUE ECONOMY

"I wish the Blue Economy to be an open source community that inspires the young at heart and in age to become entrepreneurs who want to make a difference." Gunter Pauli

The Learning Initiative was designed to develop a desire to learn, a wish to get involved, a feeling of responsibility, and a commitment to find innovative and creative solutions for the modern world.

My wish is not that the children do better than I have done, my wish is that my children do what I could never have imagined and determine their path in life, beyond what I foresaw. Will you join me in this?

GUNTER PAULI

I did not come to this world to please, and that is why the wise words of René Char motivate me to go beyond reason and yet whenever I am considered unreasonable, there is a grain of self-evidence in my action.

Reflections on How to Get Out of The Poverty and Jobless Trap through a Bottom-Up Scenario

 

 

 

The market economy is not capable of delivering to poor people as persistent rates of poverty and malnutrition demonstrate. The market economy is not capable of creating jobs to everyone as persistent rates of unemployment, especially youth unemployment confirm. There is a need to imagine a business model that performs much better;

 

Doing less bad - is not good

 

 

 

 

The onslaught of bad news about the environment, poverty, unemployment, human rights abuses and the inaction of policy makers combined with the business as usual approach by corporations leaves many concerned citizens baffled. The data before us are clear: climate change is advancing, there is no chance to absorb the hundreds of millions of unemployed youth while competitiveness of most of the nations around the world continuous to erode.

This is a short treatise on the origins (and the end) of Empathy, Solidarity and Sharing.

 

 

 

At the start of the year I wanted to summarize my recent understandings of the origins of mindfulness and grasp the essence of the ecological, happy and healthy human being. Eighteen months of research back up this article. I have ventured into  the history of the arrival of humankind on Earth some 4 million years ago. It includes the identification of the greatest inventions of humanity: the bag, the needle and bureaucracy!

 

ZERI News

The ZERI Network is delighted to share a unique recognition received - totally unexpected.

 

The University of Pennsylvania ranks think tanks around the world.

 

ZERI ranks among the top 10 in the world (#8) of the Think Tanks with the Most Innovative Policy Ideas/Proposals

 

We want to thank everyone who has challenged and inspired us. We outpaced all major German policy research institutes , rank as the best in Asia and see our friends of Development Alternatives (Ashok Khosla in India) also ranked high. Congratulation to Ashok!

 

Our Zero emissions philosophy, first introduced in 1991 is gaining traction but most important, we are gaining on the ground with hundreds of concrete initiatives. Perhaps our greatest influence is the distribution of millions of fables in dozens of languages to children around the world, especially in China. This is the greatest long term policy initiative ever undertaken.

 

To put our actions into context here is our latest on cashmere in The Gobi Desert. How to safeguard a 5,000 year old tradition, a livelihood for  the herders of sheep, and ensure a change in consumer behavior offering a product that lasts for generations.

 

Please take a moment and have a quick look at this initiative.

 

Thanking you for your most appreciated feedback!
