UnaVision is aiming for a "world in balance". Our goals are to really, really make a difference in our own lives, our communities and our environment by activating, joining and working with rural and peripheral regions with like minded people. The people are actively involved in co-developing and implementing prototypes and innovative approaches for a systemic change in our social, ecological, cultural and economic living environment.
We cherish an intense and ongoing contact with each other. We foster the new work philosophy, project based learning, eco-social entrepreneurship, common goods economy and sociocratic governance. We take responsibility for the dignity of people of different genders, ages, educational backgrounds, races and beliefs. We take responsibility for the environment and nature. We support the establishment of a viable international framework and transparency of all activities and results.
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.
A unique learning environment with project based learning activities is offered by unaVersity. It is a growing knowledge and collaborative network driven by like minded, experienced people and connected with the ecoVersities network of disruptive learning organisations. The core function of our virtual nation is collective learning, co-creation and implemtation of prototypes for a better world.
Learning being so important, if someone in our nation decides to learn something, she or he immediately becomes his or her Minister of Education. That creates the peculiar situation of eventually having as many Ministers of Education as we have learners. They get together to share, improve and create community learning resources. All our knowledge is open and freely available. This enables the network to find higher quality solutions without regional boundaries.
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.
Fundament and history of unaVision
The fundament of unaVision is based on the input from many people participating in hiking dialogs and learning journeys during the last years since the conception of ThinkCamp in 2008. The unaVision community spirit was born in 2013 during the “caravan of change” called “dunaVision”. This brought together people during an eight months long learning journey through fourteen Eastern European countries and connected in 50 workshops around one thousand people.
The journey was coordinated by Sarah Kupke and Johannes Pfister from ThinkCamp. The ThinkCamp idea emerged out of the Global Marshall Plan Initiative to foster bottom up initiatives and to prototyp new society frameworks for a regenerative world. A big influence to our approach comes from Frithjof Bergmann with his breakthrough concept of New Work - New Culture. Gatherings and dialogs with him in Europe and India deepened the understanding of his thoughts. Our co-creation process will employ among others the principle of pattern language from Christopher Alexander, action research, a design thinking process, project based learning. We learn from and colaborate with New Work - New Culture, the Transition Network, Global Village Network GIVE, the Global Ecovillage Network GEN, the Economy for the Common Good and ideas from the Basic Income Network BIEN.
You like to participate?
We are starting now to co-design the unaVision framework and will start implementation of the first prototypes of Being Spaces in April 2017.
We invite you to join our working circles sharing your skills, knowledge, experience and resources for a global actions to co-create and prototype unaVision Being Spaces as living laboratories around the globe. We like to identify and document patterns and guidelines for the unaVision movement. We are looking for inspired people who like to engage full time or part time.
In case your are inspired and motivated by our Vision and like to participate in an hands-on approach, then we are looking for YOU. You can either move into a Being Space prototype and help building it up and/or share your time, knowledge and resources with one of the working teams.
