The r3.0 Educational Transformation Blueprint
Anneloes Smitsman is the lead author of the r3.0 Educational Transformation Blueprint with 7 Transformative Learning Perspectives for Regeneration and Thrivbability, published by r3.0. This Blueprint features the EARTHwise Education for Sustainability program as case-study, as well as the transformation strategies that have evolved from the EARTHwise research over many years.
The purpose for this Blueprint is to inspire, catalyze, and support a much needed shift in the role and focus of education towards developing our transformative capacities for regeneration and thrivability. Major inner and outer shifts are required in our perspectives, understanding, attitudes, expectations, behaviours, and actions for safeguarding the present and future wellbeing of life on earth. Without this, the survival of our own and many other species is not guaranteed. Never before has learning and education become this important for developing our navigational capacities during this catalytic time of compounding tipping points. This includes preparing humanity for what we have set in motion by destabilizing our climate systems and damaging our biodiversity, and to catalyze the required actions for preventing the worst case scenarios from happening by shifting gears and trajectories now towards regeneration and thrivability.
Into the Heart of Systems Change
Learn about the foundations of thrivability (and why this is about more than mere sustainability), the importance of evolutionary coherence and the architecture of living systems, the informational dynamics of the evolutionary process, emerging future archetypes, the thrivability pattern, the difference between systemic thrivability barriers and boundaries, and how to transform our societies by applying 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.
Becoming a Tipping Point for Systemic Transformation
Humanity has entered a tipping point time of accelerated changes and major planetary challenges. This requires a whole new understanding of our evolutionary development and how to radically shift the current trajectories of widescale collapse, towards trajectories of sustainability, regeneration, and thrivability. Through the Tipping Point System we explore how our harmonically aligned efforts, talents, and creatvity can become a regenerative social tipping point for the needed changes of our time.
OUR TPS IS OUR GPS FOR WHOLE SYSTEMS CHANGE
Here we bring the best of our scientific knowledge, digital technologies, indigenous wisdom, entrepreneurial practice and collective leadership together to become the future humans of new civilizations, designed to thrive.
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 World Song. 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.
