The mission of Sustainable Human is to assist in creating and promoting a new economic system based on the collective voluntary gifts of everyday people. The goal is to transition from our current, scarcity-based economic system to a new system capable of creating abundance for all. Bypassing the monetary system, we will voluntarily collaborate on projects aimed at creating goods and services that are given freely to the world, helping to create a bottom-up, participatory, global gift economy.
After 7+ years of holding space for a conversation about the deep underlying roots of our many sustainability-related crises, the time has come to be more proactive towards a solution.
We recognize at the very root of many of our systemic issues is an economic system that measures progress and success in only one metric - growth or profit. Economic growth means consuming more resources each year than were consumed in the prior year, which means that more of Nature must be turned into product for human consumption. The scale has reached ecocidal proportions.
At the same time, fewer people are able to meet their needs from the present economic system as wealth inequality only continues to grow. Complicating matters is the fact that technology is rapidly replacing human workers in a variety of ways in both the virtual and creative markets. The idea of income being attached to work is coming undone.
We need a new economy and it is going to be up to each of us to co-create one.
Sustainable Human is creating a new, voluntary, global gift economy called the Sustainable Human Gift Economy Network (powered by Hylo - an emerging, open-source social network designed to help communities to collaborate). Its purpose is to transcend the economics of scarcity and transition humanity into the economy capable of delivering sustainable abundance for all.
The idea is simple.
We all have a gift to give. When we work together in sharing our gifts, we are able to accomplish amazing achievements. However, most ideas we create are limited by the need to make a profit. No longer.
Now we can voluntarily work together using our unique gifts and skills to create anything we want and give it freely to the world. As more people decide to join the gift economy, the size and scope of the gifts will grow to a point where people will be able to meet some of their needs through this economy, reducing the need for us to participate in the life-destroying, soul-crushing, industrial, growth economy.

Trailer for movie End of Suburbia. Since World War II North Americans have invested much of their newfound wealth in suburbia. It has promised a sense of space, affordability, family life and upward mobility.

Suburbia, and all it promises, has become the American Dream. Entire movie here on YouTube.

Forum for the Future
Using the systems thinking 'iceberg model' to explore the civil rights movement shows us how different parts of a system interact and influence one another. It becomes clear that no single event started the movement, but rather it evolved through collaboration and decades of perseverance. By working together, we can change how power and privilege it is allocated, we can design societies that are free, democratic and support everybody on the planet to flourish.
