#24 – Building a Flywheel for the Regenerative Economy

#24 - Building a Flywheel for the Regenerative Economy

How do we get our hands dirty in building a strong ecosystem that will benefit the world?


In today’s podcast we explore:

  • We dive into Thomas Schindlers’ biography and sketch some of the defining turning points from childhood, adolescence, and adulthood that connect to his initiative.
  • What comes after the liminal/sense-making web? 
  • How do we get our hands dirty in building a good world? 
  • Different projects involving the flywheel and the levers for systemic change, how these projects started, and how are these invitations transforming communities and ways of life?
  • Parts of the flywheel : 
  • What could be a wild card look like that drastically unlocks more torque on the engine going full circle?
  • When do we dare to take a daringly positive outlook beyond the collective multi-crises we are currently facing, what would the levers be that made us create a future in peace, ecological health, and abundance with all sentient beings on this beautiful planet?

Thomas Schindler

A childhood dominated by dinner table conversations around ion channels, power microscopy, nuclear war, and ecosystems collapse left its marks. Instead of becoming a rockstar, which had been the original plan, Thomas became an entrepreneur driven by applying science and technology’s power to make the planet a good place. This led to a series of for-profit and non-profit organizations, initiatives, and projects toward that objective which can be explored on his website.

But this is not carved in stone. We can truly sense into the soul of a property and feel into what that space within its given surrounding really wants to serve for. And create the circumstances that enable a broad variety of stakeholders to cocreate a place full of abundance including the arts and take sustainability really to the next level.

#8 Facilitating large scale cultural change (#2)

How can we facilitate the many chrysalis cells for the emerging, regenerative paradigm that are so far often not connected, when already aligning groups is quite challenging? We truly need groups of groups that share a common North Star, all while they still pursue their own goals, obviously. This is an undertaking that has never been done before on a global scale. But we know leaps in history are possible, from the abolition of slavery, the women’s liberations movement, the end of Apartheid, the fall of the Berlin wall.

#7 The Politics of Waking Up

What could be a new way to imagine politics?
In this episode we are diving deep into the weeds of Citizen Action Networks (CAN). We reflect how much of the inner worlds we all inhabit, from the trauma we hold, to the memetic center of gravities that steer our perception of reality, to the culture we need to nourish, for a “Politics of Waking Up”.
