Being Space Regions
Being Space communities are composed of like-minded people and organizations within a geographical region (villages, district or neighborhoods), where people actively collaborate to implement an environment for better living. Each community may consist of several hundred people. The community collaborates to prototype a systemic change towards a more resilient world in balance. It forms a unique location for learning, working and living together. The people are acting in a living laboratory. They are creating prototypes in many sectors such as eco-building, permaculture, information technology, sharing economy which are sustainable for our grandchildren. The activities in Being Space Regions concentrate on important, basic needs of people such as having meaningful work, food, accommodation, preventive health care and a suitable social and cultural living environment. The environment and nature will be protected to a very high degree. The governance structure in Being Space Regions is based on the unaNation sociocratic system with working circles, a general and top circle and a double interlinked system with the unaNation governance circles.
The main objective is the emergence of lively, healthy, balanced communities of various sizes and cultures which allows good living, which attracts people to stay or to move in regardless of their cultural, religious, educational or social background.
Being Spaces are inclusive communities with a mixture of inter-generational, inter-cultural and inter-sectoral member. No one is rejected as long as he or she follows the common ethics of the communities which has to be developed.
Being Spaces offer for the people involved a supportive environment to work on their inner calls, a basic secureness system, not Basic Income, suppling accommodation, food, preventive health services, learning opportunities, cultural and social activities. Being Spaces require from their members to offer some of their time, talents and resources for the community. Being Spaces are regularly interconnected virtually and by learning journeys in order to learn from each other and share experiences. The regional Being Spaces will serve as a node and hub for this participation and creation, for learning, meeting, working and celebrating together.
People and organizations within a village, neighborhood or region, where like-minded people actively collaborate to implement an environment for better living form a Being Space Region. The community collaborates to prototype a systemic change towards a more resilient world in balance. It forms a unique location for learning, working and living together. The people are acting in a living laboratory and are creating prototypes in many sectors like eco-building, permaculture, sharing economy which are sustainable for our grandchildren. Being Spaces concentrate on important, basic needs of people such as having meaningful work, food, accommodation, preventive health and a suitable social and cultural living environment.
The entirety of all Being Spaces and the unaVision community with no borders is the unaNation. It is a sharing and solidary global community of many regional locations. UnaNation and the Being Space Regions will be governed with a sociocratic system with interconnected working circles, general circles and top circles. The intensive knowledge exchange will support the chance for a better livelihood for all people. A common framework and guidelines of the unaNation will support the Being Space Regions in their emergence and co-development. We believe, that all unaNation people who support the movement with 50% of their time and resources should have free access to food, accommodation, education, preventive health services and cultural activities.
Micro Lands are locations (plots of lands, buildings, apartments, desks, workshops) which people or organizations offer to be used for free by unaVision network members. The micro lands can be located within or outside existing or future Being Space Regions.
- establishing circular economies with eco-social entrepreneurships, meaningful green workplaces while testing new economic and social models
- creating people centered learning environments based on project based learning, flipped classrooms activities; makerspaces/hackerspaces/hubs
- creating preventive health and life care systems affordable for everybody;
- creating a rich social and cultural environment,
- creating permaculture regions and encouraging local and organic food supply
- implementing of a participatory - sociocratic approach for the administration of the region and network,
- fostering an extensive international short and long-term exchange of interested people between the locations in order to learn from each other
UnaNation is the entirety of all Being Space Regions, Micro Lands and supporters of the unaVision communities. We co-create or integrate Being Space Regions all around the world. We set our imagination free to create better forms living within our Being Space Regions and Micro Lands. A Being Space Region is a community of people, a neighborhood or a region with connected organisations and institutions. Our unaNation can be seen as a network of these Being Spaces, living laboratories spread on all Earth's continents. Our unaNation has no borders. The core functions of our virtual nation are collective learning and supporting each other in the implementation of our vision and objectives.
This is why you also can view our nation as a global, self organized university so called unaVersity. Learning being so important, our Ministry of Education must be a strong institution. This is why, the moment someone in our nation decides to learn something, she or he immediately becomes Minister of Education. That creates the peculiar situation of eventually having as many Ministers of Education as we have learners. Each learner is in charge of his own learning and as Ministers of Education, they get together to share, improve and create community learning resources. All our knowledge is open and freely available.
Speaking of resources, we also have our own economy. It is based on gift culture and voluntary sharing. We believe that in the course of time, abundant and free learning and knowledge sharing will create abundance of all kinds of resources and render money obsolete. Before that happens, for the scarce resources that need to be balanced, and in absence of a common supply and contribution system we also have our own currency - the UNA. There are no taxes, each of us decides if and how he contributes to the collective living.
In foreign affairs and all other matters, all of us are Presidents. We all have diplomatic passports. Our form of organization does not transfer any authority from the collective to an individual and does not take any authority from the individual for the collective. All collaboration is voluntary. We work on Sociocratic principles.
We collectively co-design the unaNation constitution. Each active unaVision member is part of the development team.
Criteria for Being Space Regions
In order to become a full member of the unaNation a Being Space Region should fullfill the underneth criteria. Until the criteria are fullfilled the regional unaVision community can become an affiliated member with no voting rights. People and organisations can join the "unaVison" initiative to work together on the common objectives and on creating BeingSpace Regions. The "unaNation" is the network of "BeingSpaces", . The grandfathers clause can be applied for the founding regions.
- ETHICS and CONSTITUTION
the members of the BeingSpace Region obey the unaNation constitution.
a certain number of unaVision people, for example 15, are full time envolved in the regional activities of the creation an maintaining of the Being Space Region
- LEGAL STATUS:
a legal umbrella organisation is set up and working (Coop, social business, foundation depending on national law) in order to serve the social business activities of the Being Space region people and organisations
This organisation is also the legal partner of the other Being Spaces. Probably depending on the national law it will be good to have a for profit and a non-profit for potential funding.

A Being Space will serve as a node and hub for the members and people from the region.
Being Space Communities are connected to other Being Spaces, EcoVersities and the unaVision community through learning journeys, internet platforms, dialogs and gatherings.
Being Spaces plan to offer a basic secureness (not basic income) with accommodation, food, preventive health services, learning opportunities, cultural and social activities. They require from their members to offer some of their time, talents and resources for the community.
BeingSpaces are regularly interconnected virtually and by learning journeys in order to learn from each other and share experiences.
