From Problem to Purpose

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the whole world would

  • collaborate in keeping the earth inhabitable? And
  • consider other purposes, even an alternative way of life?

That would require an analysis and finally, a plan. Many people together could write such plans using digital technology. That’s exactly what this website proposes: not any actual plan, but a platform to write one.

The proposal in a nutshell

The following is a proposal to launch a platform (a website, for instance) on which everybody can analyse problems, in particular today’s most pressing problem: the decline of the environment.

What would be the result?

The platform could help us to find

  • root causes of problems,
  • measures against problems,
  • alternative goals, to which some problems no longer apply, and
  • roadmaps for implementation.

This would result in a template from which people can derive an actual plan. As to the environment, this would not only be an emergency plan but possibly also a perspective on a new way of life.

Who should read this proposal?

If you want to organise, design, or develop such a platform, then please read the rest of this proposal. Consult the site map to find your way in the proposal.

How to respond?

Leave your comments about the content in the project forum. You may also express your support in the endorsement forum or use the contact form.

What would be the next step?

From the responses should emerge

  • a concrete design or choice of the platform,
  • an organisation behind it, and
  • support for a fund request.

A prototype is here.
