About the Community
Founded in 2017, the Sustainability Community is an online community of dedicated individuals, striving toward the theoretical concept of the Sustainable Socio-Economic System and the gradual transition toward it being researched by an independent highly credible research organization by means of applying the scientific method in all aspects of the research.
This website includes the Database with profiles and contact details of individuals versed in particular academic disciplines, who might be willing to discuss participation in various projects, ultimately aimed toward establishing the aforementioned independent research organization. The website also includes a list of such projects, which are being conducted independently of this website.
Educational materials included in this website provide the definition of the Sustainable Socio-Economic System, essentially representing a socio-economic system, which maximises the chances of the long-term survival and prosperity of mankind. Furthermore, they include a rough outline of the theoretical concept of the Sustainable Socio-Economic System and an outline of the theoretical concept of the gradual transition toward it.
The Sustainable Socio-Economic System is defined by the Principle of Sustainability, a set of criteria required to be applied in all aspects of a socio-economic system in order for it to be characterized as sustainable.
All socio-economic systems can be determined to either be sustainable or unsustainable, based on whether or not all of the criteria of the Principle of Sustainability are applied in all aspects of a particular socio-economic system. All past socio-economic systems that have taken place in human society, including the market-monetary democratic system, being the prevailing socio-economic system in the modern world, to a significant extent breach various criteria of the Principle of Sustainability, essentially meaning that all of these socio-economic systems have been and are unsustainable. In order for the chances of the long-term survival and prosperity of mankind to be maximised, the transition toward the Sustainable Socio-Economic System would be necessary. This fact indicates that a community of dedicated individuals, such as the Sustainability Community, is required in order for the first steps toward establishing the Sustainable Socio-Economic System to be taken.
Educational materials included in this website should provide you with a sufficient understanding of the concept of the Sustainable Socio-Economic System, the transition toward such a system, and of the proposed independent research organization, needed for you to actively start participating in the Sustainability Community. In addition to the purpose of the proposed independent research organization, these educational materials include recommendations regarding the organizational structure of such a research organization, which would have to be designed in a way that would enable the scientific method to be applied in all aspects of its research, as well as in a way that this research organization would represent a highly credible source of information.
If you are a new visitor to this website, the thing you should do is read the provided educational materials, which are downloadable and can be found under the section »Education«.
If you perceive the theoretical concepts of the Sustainable Socio-Economic System and the gradual transition toward it as something worth researching further by the mentioned independent research organization, and if you are willing to devote your time and effort toward establishing such a research organization, you should join the Sustainability Community by entering your profile and contact details into the Database. By doing so, other individuals registered in the Database will be able to find your contact details in the Database and may attempt to contact you in order to discuss your participation in projects, aimed toward establishing such a research organization. You can also independently from this website start your own project, aimed toward the previously mentioned independent research organization being established, and can contact other individuals registered in the Database in order to discuss their potential participation in your project. By taking any or all of the abovementioned steps you would become actively engaged in the process of human society moving toward the Sustainable Socio-Economic System.
