GLOBAL-CHANGE / Geo-Eco-Dynamics  

We just revisited the Global Change exhibition from 1990 in view of the cellebration of 20 years environmental administrations in Berlin (kick-off April 28, 2010) and the planned 20years of the GLOBAL CHANGE exhibition May 30, 1990 - 2010. See here the 1990 exhibition (50 slides) and the opening two posters introducing and translating GLOBAL CHANGE from 1990 to 2010 and 2030. UPDATED April 2010. pls see: http://benking.de/futures/Poster-Global-Change-1990.pdf

and how it was presnted with the Club of Budapest event 4 "Eduaction for planetary consciousness", and UNESCO in 1995 and 1996 as "me/we/other models" and "Feel and Share being part of Life and Nature" - AND how this connects to 2001 presentations re:  "Concreteness" ( ""GTSC"" - THEORY OF SYSTEMS&CONGRUENCE (sik)) and this  INTEGRAL AGENDA collection in view of the RIO+10 and "MILLENNIUM" MEA Process and the MILLENNIUM (AC/UNU) Future Matrix, and the MILLENNIUM SUMMIT long view scenarios in "Global Challenges For Humanity" - ALL THIS in view of some positive and well considered alternatives to CALDWELL's APLS question:  "Is Humanity destined...?" with outlook to ongoing projects like the Virtual United Nations Project and the MP CoLab worknet.

might be a good reason to update the efforts above. Before I recommend to reconnect cultures, people, and sustainability issues for the Anna Lindh Foundation Barcelona Forum 2010: Here my Proposal:

* comming soon  - In Vorbereitung

HERE ARE SOME LINKS AND TEXTS TO BE INCLUDED LATER or with some reference to the global-integral "matters" above:


Is the world in "the right" slow motion? 
see "Humane Information Society"
or what we wrote about speed in 
"ROBUST PATHS"

One of my central concern is how we see, understand and share our views and assumptions and how these pre-analytic visions make us construct our "realities".
In 1995  we wondered:
"which world is in trouble" 
see also our dialoge exercises  or the open-forum.


or accelerated speed, making us feel dizzy.
A "New World" where we can not find orientation and easily get lost in options (see governance) or "pictures".
Please links to the art of governance and the capacity to govern.

please see also:  World of NGO's  recommendations to "worknet" and  network.  GERMAN  GERMAN INTERNET_FIESTA   ENGLISH

ETHICS & ART OF GOVERNANCE - Regierungskunst - Entscheidungen anschaulich und Wirkungen deutlicher machen - Leiden reduzieren. Die Thematik, aufbauend auf Ethik und Verantwortung habe ich kürzlich so zusammengefasst: We looked recently into the issue of   Ethics and how to link (share) personal and cognitive with inter-personal dimensions. See also the   Ethics Summit and presentations from 1995 on the "optics of ethics" and how to present such issues in Situation Rooms or Situation Spaces. AND to round up the matters, how this leads to modern applications like "reference rooms" for the access of global library and museum content or how we use it with kids to see context and patterns of  knowing and interests, to only give two possible examles of possible frames for ordering what we can know or can not know - and how it relates. Als guten Einstieg in solche übergreifenden Fragen empfehle ich die Arbeit von Ralph Siu und die vom Ihm gegründete ISP Internationals Society of Panetics. http://www.panetics.org/und das ISP Speakers Bureau.
