Listening to our Planet
The word "EARTHwise" means to become wise and evolutionary coherent like our planet Earth as well as to act in harmony with the healthy living systems of our planet. The words "EARTHwise Centre" represent how we place the indigenous wisdom of our planet Earth at the centre of all we do and who we are.
Our commitment is the creation of an EARTHwise world for the full blossoming of people, our Earth, and all her living beings - including our oceans, forests, and vital climate systems.
Transition leadership for thrivability
The journey to thrivability requires specific leadership competencies, combined with a transformative understanding of - the dynamics of complex systems, tipping points, transition times, social innovation, and behavioural change. We provide and empower this through our:
- Consultancy and system design services, speaking engagements, research, projects and advocacy;
- Leadership programs and capacity development for the systemic transformation within existing businesses, organizations, communities and governments, to;
- Transition to regenerative distributive economies and inclusive participatory democracies.
Our services support the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), while taking this further to lead for where we need to go for a thrivable future.
Promoting evolutionary coherence
We promote evolutionary coherence through our EARTHwise Tipping Point System (TPS), which is designed as a wisdom collaboratory:
- Bringing together an incredible team, council, and alliance of highly talented and committed leaders, creatives, influencers, and solutionaries from diverse fields, as;
- A social tipping point for thrivability.
Education for being EARTHwise
Through our EARTHwise education programs and online courses we support people to develop the wisdom, vision, and competencies to become EARTHwise creatives, facilitators, leaders, and custodians.
About EARTHwise Centre
EARTHwise Centre is a non-profit CSR registered organization, based in Mauritius with international chapters in Europe, Argentina, the USA and Australia.
The EARTHwise Tipping Point System is a wisdom collaboratory designed to promote our innate evolutionary coherence.
Through the Tipping Point System, we bring together the best of our scientific knowledge, digital technologies, indigenous wisdom, entrepreneurial practice and collective leadership to promote our innate evolutionary coherence for a thriving world. Without evolutionary coherence our systems turns destructive. Evolutionary coherence is the musical language of living systems, and that is why through the Tipping Point System we start with Music as the Universal language.
We are currently working on the co-creation of a Tipping Point Music Anthem as an ode to Mother Earth for regenerating our evolutionary coherence, with our Tipping Point creative music producer Thomas Bähler, associate producer for the Grammy award winning "We Are the World". This Anthem is inspired by Our Vision from Mother Earth. This anthem will be linked with the Tipping Point Songs for Action platform and app that is being developed by Purdue University, together with our Tipping Point Wisdom Collaboratory. The anthem will also be linked to the amazing initiative of our partner Chant Live to regenerate our planet.
Into the Heart of Systems Change
Learn more about the importance of our evolutionary coherence, what it is about, and how to transform our societies by applying EARTHwise intelligence based on living system principles for our societal development.
This groundbreaking PhD dissertation, "Into the Heart of Systems Change" by EARTHwise Founder Dr Anneloes Smitsman, provides the scientific foundations for our EARTHwise strategies, system design, and programs. Anneloes received her degree of Doctor from the School of Business and Economics, Maastricht University, the Netherlands, where she conducted her Ph.D. as external researcher at the Maastricht Sustainable Institute (formerly ICIS). Her dissertation is gaining international traction for the innovative guidance it provides through its Transition Plan for a Thrivability Civilisation and for addressing the systemic thrivability barriers in resolving our greatest societal challenges.
Love Letters from Mother Earth
The Amazon Bestseller "Love Letters from Mother Earth – The Promise of a New Beginning" is written by Dr Anneloes Smitsman based on her conversations with our Earth as a Mother who guides us into the heart of our true humanity. Through these 13 Letters of Love we discover who we are from a planetary perspective and receive the wisdom from Mother Earth for this challenging time.
These thirteen Letters provide us with three essential keys for the actualization of our Unity. By accessing these keys of wisdom we start to see and understand the root causes of the thousands of years of division and disunity that have caused so much suffering. Mother Earth promises and shows us how a new cycle of time, a new beginning, is possible born from unity and wholeness, by the power of Love. This prepares us as co-creators of a New Story based on the actualization of our true humanity.
This book has been highly acclaimed by Dr Jean Houston, Dr Jude Currivan, Chief Phil Lane, and many others, and contains a foreword by Prof dr. Alexander Laszlo. The letters are also the source of inspiration for our Tipping Point anthem. Our EARTHwise Vision is based on Letter 7.
The Future Normals Webinar Series
Envisioning a post-coronavirus world
This transformational new webinar series results from a unique collaboration between EARTHwise Centre and r3.0, both founding members of the EARTHwise Tipping Point System. The coronavirus crisis has revealed even more strongly that dualistically polarized systems are incapable of guiding us through periods of crisis, in fact they are the very reason that we sink so deep into crisis. With dualistically polarized systems we mean the kind of dynamics that create divisions such as “economic gain versus health priorities”, “climate priorities versus business interests”, “state safety versus individual freedom”, and so forth.
The “Future Normals” webinars explore the necessary ’transition pathways’, r3.0’s language of multi-level transformation, to get us out of dualistic argumentation and old unsustainable normals, by offering a Third Way approach for moving out of the crisis. The ‘Third Way’ is a unique approach developed by Dr Anneloes Smitsman based on her PhD research at Maastricht University, the Netherlands.
The first of the 7 webinars begins on May 20th and focusses on: "Saving the Economy versus Saving Lives >>> A Different Economy." To join, click the button below.
