Mutualistic Communication + Governance[edit]

Regenerative Communication[edit]

Regenerative communication - A holistic human-centric approach to communication. The term "regenerative" describes processes that restore our collective sources of energy through resilient practices that integrate the needs of society with the integrity of nature. Regenerative communication restores our connection to humanity and nature, by taking responsibility for our roles in co-creating a regenerative society.


Partnerism - A socio-economic system that values and rewards caring for one another, nature, and our collective future. Partnerism is based on Cultural Transformation Theory, which proposes that societies used to follow a mutualistic, caring “partnership model” of civilization, giving way to today's current “dominator model” of civilization, but with growing evidence that we are returning to the partnership model.


Prosocial is an orientation toward the welfare of others and society as a whole. This might be an attitude, a behavior, or an institution. It might be directed toward family and friends or the social acceptance of all people. Ultimately, Prosocial is an entire worldview.
