Expressions of
Positive Culture

After thousands of years of war on nature and war on each other, our mainstream culture of domination and exploitation is leading to collapse. However an alternate worldview and culture is emerging, one that naturally leads to social justice and environmental stewardship. We are transitioning from a Material worldview to a Planetary worldview, from seeing only a material world made of separate objects that can be exploited and manipulated for personal gain, to seeing the world as interconnected, with interwoven living systems relying on each other and functioning as a whole. This view of the world implies and insures social justice and environmental stewardship. The Planet Project aims to support and promote the shift to a Planetary worldview by means of culture. In this section of the website we will be collecting, organizing, and bringing you expressions of culture that support and promote the Planetary worldview. And we welcome your nominations!

This shift is already in progress and there are many change agents actively involved in manifesting this shift. We will foster this macro-shift from Material Culture to Planetary Culture by highlighting books, films, podcasts, articles, videos, music, social media posts and other cultural expressions that provide direct evidence of this shift. We refer to these expressions as positive culture – both because it provides positive evidence of this macro-shift and also because it inspires us to positive action and service; it gives us hope, and provides tools that promote wellbeing. Positive culture has stories about the world we want, with characters who model kindness and courage, compassion and respect, partnership and healing, WE and not just ME.

The Ecosphere is the Life-giving matrix that envelops all organisms, intimately intertwined with them in the story of evolution from the beginning of time. It presents 11 principles rooted in the conviction that until the Ecosphere is recognized as the indispensable common ground of all human activities, people will continue to set their immediate interests first. Without an ecocentric perspective that anchors values and purposes in a greater reality than our own species, the resolution of political, economic, and religious conflicts will be impossible.I want to Learn and I have <10 minutesDuration: <10 minutes3/27/2024

It links system-change, philanthropy, and cosmology. The real challenge for philanthrophy, say Ladha and Murphy, is to help the world move to a post-capitalist economy and culture that overcomes the cultural traumas of Western conquest and colonality.

What this points to, in our view, is a crisis of imagination. Humans at heart are storytellers, and we enact the stories we tell ourselves. If humanity is going to unlock "the good ending," we've got to imagine it first. We've got to imagine ten thousand localized versions of it. That's how things change. Fortunately, visions of a more beautiful, compassionate, regenerative future already exist. But since they're not being broadcast daily on the evening news, we've got to dedicate a little more energy towards broadcasting them ourselves.

In this profoundly relevant and potent book, Choosing Earth, Duane Elgin brilliantly draws our vision into, and then beyond these tragedies of our own making, presenting collapse as an integral part of our rite of passage if humanity is to grow into conscious relationship with life. Choosing Earth envisions a fiery initiation that has the potential to transform humanity’s life-denying separations and awaken us to our deep interconnectedness—ultimately inspiring us to work together for the well-being of the entire Earth. With both visionary optimism and unflinching realism, Elgin draws on more than 50 years of research, writing and activism to develop this remarkable book that plants seeds of possibility and serves as a guide for our way through this time of great transformation.I want to Learn and I have Time for a Deeper DiveDuration: Time for a Deeper Dive8/23/2022

https://naturaljustice.org/publication/community-protocols-toolbox-2016/Community Protocols ToolboxCategory: Food SovereigntyFormat: BookSource: Natural JusticeThe purpose of this Toolbox is to serve as a first stop for facilitators who are interested in helping a community to develop a community protocol. Community Protocols provide a vehicle for external parties to meaningfully engage with communities, and for communities to catalyze their own internal development strategies. Communities are profoundly impacted by the effects of national policy decisions and development projects. Often, decisions related to these policies and projects are made without meaningful input from thosethat will bear the most direct impacts, i.e. indigenous peoples and local communities. This lack of involvement in the planning and implementation of projects can lead to a number of problems, including serious human rights violations.While national legislation and implementation of large infrastructure, extractive, agricultural and other projects can represent the state’s views of development, communities have their own visions for developmentas well. They also have cultural heritage that includes rich histories, traditions, worldviews, deep connections to their lands and natural resources, and customary rules and procedures to regulate conduct as well as interactions between themselves and other parties. This cultural heritage is manifested and expressed in many different ways such as oral traditions and folklore, dances, carvings, and designs.I want to Learn and I have Time for a Deeper DiveDuration: Time for a Deeper Dive3/1/2022

Rather than seeking to minimize the harm we inflict, Cradle to Cradle reframes design as a positive, regenerative force—one that creates footprints to delight in, not lament.

The barriers to cooperation are indeed formidable. And yet… once we dispel some common myths about evolution, we find extraordinary examples of cooperation in the evolutionary record. The first myth is that the central story of evolution is only about competition. The facts reveal that the evolutionary dance between cooperation and competition has produced ever-greater cooperation at ever-greater scales and ever-increasing levels of complexity. The second myth is that evolution is only about genes.

Perhaps the highest leverage response is a multi-faceted approach: 1) reimagine our economic system by grounding its fundamental assumptions in our growing understanding of biophysical systems, 2) accelerate and reinforce this transition by changing the content and methods of our educational system, 3) manage a prosperous retreat from our dependence fossil fuels.I want to Learn and I have <60 minutesDuration: <60 minutes6/25/2024

The ban on the manufacture and import of these harmful single-use plastics, barring a few targeted exceptions to recognize specific cases, will come into effect in December 2022. To provide businesses in Canada with enough time to transition and to deplete their existing stocks, the sale of these items will be prohibited as of December 2023. The Government will also prohibit the export of plastics in the six categories by the end of 2025, making Canada the first among peer jurisdictions to do so internationally.I want to Learn and I have <10 minutesDuration: <10 minutes3/1/2022

The model shows Economic Stratification or Ecological Strain can independently lead to collapse, in agreement with the historical record. “Carrying Capacity” is shown to be a practical means for early detection of a collapse. Mechanisms leading to two types of collapses are discussed. The new dynamics of this model can also reproduce the irreversible collapses found in history. Collapse can be avoided, and population can reach a steady state at maximum carrying capacity if the rate of depletion of nature is reduced to a sustainable level and if resources are distributed equitably.I want to Learn and I have <60 minutesDuration: <60 minutes3/27/2024

This blog from the Planet Project highlights the work of Dr. Zachary Stein who argues that our definition of the word education should be broadened to encompass the entire process of intergenerational transmission through which this societal regeneration happens – all the ways we “pass on” culture.

And the best way to do that is to mix those facts and balance them with at least three times as much attention to the opportunities and solutions where you can actually do something. This inspires concrete actions that last and grow, when supported with positive feedback.”I want to Awaken and I have <10 minutesDuration: <10 minutes3/1/2022

http://www.flemingpolicycentre.org.uk/books/Lean Logic -- A dictionary for the future and how to survive it.Category: Climate ChangeFormat: BookSource: David Fleming and Shaun ChamberlinA dictionary unlike any other, it leads readers through Fleming’s stimulating exploration of fields as diverse as culture, history, science, art, logic, ethics, myth, economics, and anthropology, being made up of four hundred and four engaging essay-entries covering topics such as Boredom, Community, Debt, Growth, Harmless Lunatics, Land, Lean Thinking, Nanotechnology, Play, Religion, Spirit, Trust, and Utopia.The threads running through every entry are Fleming’s deft and original analysis of how our present market-based economy is destroying the very foundations—ecological, economic, and cultural— on which it depends, and his core focus: a compelling, grounded vision for a cohesive society that might weather the consequences. A society that provides a satisfying, culturally-rich context for lives well lived, in an economy not reliant on the impossible promise of eternal economic growth. A society worth living in. Worth fighting for. Worth contributing to.The beauty of the dictionary format is that it allows Fleming to draw connections without detracting from his in-depth exploration of each topic. Each entry carries intriguing links to other entries, inviting the enchanted reader to break free of the imposed order of a conventional book, starting where she will and following the links in the order of her choosing. In combination with Fleming’s refreshing writing style and good-natured humor, it also creates a book perfectly suited to dipping in and out.I want to Learn and I have Time for a Deeper DiveDuration: Time for a Deeper Dive3/1/2022

This is work of inner engagement and engagement in the world. Deepened inner life creates space for the moral wrestling that can transform interpersonal relationships. For this reason, our work engages leaders, innovators and changemakers who bring intelligence and teaching to bear on every aspect of human existence — the insights of civic leaders, teachers and neuroscientists in conversation with the wisdom and pastoral intelligence of a community’s religious and spiritual leaders.We take a conflict transformation and peacebuilding approach to the scale of change we believe our world needs and desires. There is an underlying violence that has become a part of our lives. This violence has disrupted nascent relationships, altered our sense of self, and disoriented our relationships with each other and with the world around us.

https://peter-barnes.org/book/ours-the-case-for-universal-property/Ours: The Case for Universal PropertyCategory: HumanityFormat: BookSource: Peter BarnesCAPITALISM has two egregious flaws: it relentlessly widens inequality and destroys nature. For billions of people around the world, the challenge of our era is to repair or replace capitalism before its cumulative harms become irreparable. But how, quite practically, can either of those things be done, without sacrificing the benefits of liberty and markets?This book envisions a transformed market economy in which private property and businesses are complemented by universal property and fiduciary trusts whose beneficiaries are future generations and all living persons equally. The way to build such an economy is to add, gradually but steadily over time, a new class of property rights whose beneficial owners are future generations and all living members of society equally, Economists wrangle over monetary, fiscal and regulatory policies but pay little attention to property rights. Their models all assume that property rights remain just as they are forever. But this needn’t and shouldn’t be the case. My premise is that capitalism’s most grievous flaws are, at root, problems of property rights and must be addressed at that level.PROPERTY RIGHTS in modern economies are grants by governments of permission to use, lease, sell or bequeath specific assets — and just as importantly, to exclude others from doing those things. The assets involved can be tangible, like land and machinery, or intangible, like shares of stock or songs. Taken as a whole, property rights are akin to gravity: they curve economic space-time. Their tugs and repulsions are everywhere, and nothing can avoid them. And just as water flows inexorably toward the ocean, so money, goods and power flow inexorably toward property rights... the most oft-forgotten fact about property rights is that they do not exist in nature; they are constructs of human minds and societies. The assets to which they apply may exist in nature, but the rights of humans to do things with them, or prevent others from doing them, do not. Their design and allocation are entirely up to us.In this book, I take our existing fabric of property rights as both a given and merely the latest iteration in an evolutionary process that has been and will continue to be altered by living humans. While eliminating existing property rights is difficult, adding new ones is less so.I want to Learn and I have Time for a Deeper DiveDuration: Time for a Deeper Dive3/1/2022

https://regeneration.org/Regeneration by Paul HawkenCategory: HumanityFormat: BookSource: Regeneration is a radical new approach to the climate crisis, one that weaves justice, climate, biodiversity, and human dignity into a seamless tapestry of action, policy, and transformation that can end the climate crisis in one generation. It is the first book to describe and define the burgeoning regeneration movement spreading rapidly throughout the world.Our purpose is to end the climate crisis in one generation. Ending the crisis does not complete the challenge of global warming. That is a century-long commitment. Ending the crisis means that by 2030 collective action by humanity will have reduced total greenhouse gas emissions by 45 to 50 percent. At this writing, we are going backward and increasing emissions.The most common question about the crisis is “What should I do?” How can a person or entity create the greatest impact on the climate emergency in the shortest time? Most people do not know what to do, or may believe the things they can do are insufficient. We think otherwise.Our approach to reversing climate change differs from other proposals. It is based on the idea of regeneration. We do not oppose other strategies and plans. To the contrary, we praise and are grateful for all approaches. Our concern is simple: most people in the world remain disengaged, and we need a way forward that engages the majority of humanity. Regeneration is an inclusive and effective strategy compared to combating, fighting, or mitigating climate change. Regeneration creates, builds, and heals. Regeneration is what life has always done, we are life, and that is our focus. It includes how we live and what we do—everywhere. We have a common interest and that interest can only be served when we come together.I want to Learn and I have Time for a Deeper DiveDuration: Time for a Deeper Dive3/1/2022

https://davidsloanwilson.world/papers-and-studies/rethinking-the-theoretical-foundation-of-economics-i-the-multilevel-paradigm/Rethinking the theoretical foundation of economics I: The multilevel paradigmCategory: RegenerativeFormat: ArticleSource: David Sloan WilsonThis article offers a new paradigm for economics: the “multilevel paradigm,” which applies the Darwinian theory of evolution to the analysis of economic processes. “Darwinian” refers to all variation/selection/replication processes, not just genetic evolution, making it highly relevant to economic theory and practice. The economy is viewed as a system that is embedded within political, social and environmental systems. The evolution of economic activities is understood in terms of variation (innovation), selection (cooperative and competitive relations that survive) and replication (transmission and proliferation of ideas). The multilevel paradigm comes with its own definition and purpose of economics, as the discipline that explores how resources, goods and services can be mobilized in the pursuit of wellbeing in thriving societies, now and in the future. We describe the prominent characteristics of the multilevel paradigm: flexible, multiple levels of functional organization; the primacy of social relations, ignorance as uncertainty; multi-faceted, context-dependent wellbeing; and multilevel evolution as progress.I want to Learn and I have Time for a Deeper DiveDuration: Time for a Deeper Dive1/30/2024

These astrobiologists go on to suggest that perhaps a species and its planet can evolve “planetary intelligence”, which they define as “the acquisition and application of collective knowledge, operating at a planetary scale, which is integrated into the function of coupled planetary systems.” This echoes a foundational tenet of the Planet Project is that humans are beginning to evolve planetary intelligence, and a positive future is possible for our species and our planet if enough of us can acquire this new kind of intelligence, and soon enough.I want to Learn and I have <10 minutesDuration: <10 minutes7/16/2023

Each guest shares one fundamental aspect of what conventional economic theory gets wrong and how it could be improved in our education system. What basic assumptions about humans have led to a misunderstanding of the average person’s decision making? What areas has (mainstream) economic theory turned a blindspot to as the foundation of our economic systems? Who is finding the models and systems that economists have created useful - and how does economics as a discipline need to change in the face of a lower energy future? In short, what we teach our 18-22 year olds around the world matters - a great deal.I want to Learn and I have <2 hoursDuration: <2 hours6/25/2024
