                          Sustainable Human Futures Online Invites ethical creative content creators to share the most exciting stories that create change through community capacity building toward ecological sustainability.
                          We seek to do this as a way of helping to future-proof our local economies & collective global futures.

                          This Group is Committed to Enabling, Inspiring & Engaging individuals & groups with social, economic, environmental & cultural change stories: about people, places, projects, products, processes, principles or plans that aspire to help sustainable human futures, so we can learn to work with love, in a world that sees value 'beyond profit'.

                          If we are going to create a better world, then we need diverse stories of change that encourage & celebrate creative innovation, ethical entrepreneurship and community custodianship toward futures that realise 'the metric for sustainability is not carbon... it is children'.
                          As story tellers we have a profound responsibility to encourage more sustainable future pathways to create active change.

                          Who would like to share transformational stories about local ethical individuals or groups; sustainability initiatives; creative enterprise models or better ways to do things efficiently, using less money & waste?
                          As we do this, let's be clear about how we might do so, while ensuring the collaborative designers of these stories of change are able to share in the health, wealth & wellbeing creation of a new narrative for humanity.
                          Let's think about alternate ways we might design better media distribution systems.

                          Does anyone believe the current online social media environment offers us the chance (& opportunity) to evolve beyond the old paradigm narrative toward a new creative voice & vision made possible by other future builders & story enablers?
                          The old paradigm story, fostered by economists, still demands a 'cash fuelled, single-bottom-line growth imperative' (where mindless consumption, extreme capitalism & toxic economics are increasingly limiting human futures) but it is polluting airways, poisoning waterways, degrading soil, exhausting energy, starving souls & eating our childrens' childrens' futures.
                          We need a New Paradigm Chorus for change that celebrates diversity, creativity, ambiguity, empathy & the needs of our own local community, in ways that lead those in authority to embrace & adapt to change.

                          If we are to 'be the change we wish to see in the world' (mahatma gandhi), then this group might help us to
                          'see the change we wish to be in the world'. (paul b bishop)

                          Rather than the current call from those in authority to 'resist climate change'; we, as story makers have the opportunity to design optimal ecologies which can embrace our 'climate of social, political, economic, environmental & cultural change'.

                          Can your sustainability stories help passionate people with purpose & principles to share & learn from the stories of others?
                          How could we seek to raise individual & collective awareness, intelligence & capacity by sharing glocal (global & local) stories that embrace social, economic, environmental & cultural (ecological) Sustainability' health, wealth & wellbeing?

                          Might we even be able to reclaim access to self-managed distribution systems that allow ethical online media platforms; so ideas and ideals can be explored without the lust for commercial return$ that would limit optimal outcomes?

                          To make this work:
                          We: You, Me, i, (All of Us) will need to decide what we love & why we work. Why do we make & share stories? Is it to be paid? To be discovered? To reveal beauty? To honour creativity? To dare to dream?
                          Are we working for employers, our groups, our selves or our communities in the online story sharing space?
                          How can we pitch our sustainability stories to the places they create maximum positive effect to help leave a lasting legacy for future generations?

                          If you own content that you believe can make a meaningful difference to your local or broader world, lets see what might happen if we share our ideas, our ideals & create a vision that helps us embrace a change toward sustainable human futures.

                          with anticipation:
                          Paul Bishop (Ecological Actor)
