Premise: “The world we have made as a result of the level of thinking we have, creates problems that we cannot solve at the same level of thinking at which we created them”. We must change our mental condition for us to change our social, economic and ecological circumstances.
Action: Increase a number of fundamental capabilities in the community members through a real-life, comprehensive learning process that will enable us to co-creatively build the life we have reason to value.
Condition: To ensure that the change is truly rooted in our people and therefore socially, economically and culturally sustainable and compelling, Isinilang na Maharlika must be a participatory process. This requires the attainment of a delicate balance between external inputs – capital, materials, technologies and expertise – and the internal resources of community members, while concentrating on strengthening and enlarging the capabilities of the community members to integrate and shape the creative process.
Outcome: A tangible and experiential proof of concept in the form of Isinilang na Maharlika Ecovillage that a prosperous life for all is very possible in a socially and ecologically harmonious manner, which can be replicated and scaled in other towns and provinces, and will be an inspiration and catalyst for people to implement these same changes in their own lives, organizations and communities:
- An education system that enables and facilitates the development of each person’s full potential as human being
- Ecologically resilient lifestyles in a regenerating natural environment
- Meaningful economic activities that generate sufficient income for dignified and desirable lifestyles for all members
