Jara Pascual erklärt uns, wie man natürliche Innovations-Communities als Oasen der Gesellschaft fördert. (in Engl.)
One of the major goals of the Daily of the Month Podcast is to explore the potential of organisations to create spaces of cohesion, personal/group growth and all the while delivering value to their customers and stakeholders.
This episode takes a Meta View of the organisation as it fits into the context of the bigger economy. We zoom out to look at how we are standing at the “The time between two worlds” and dialogue with Jara Pascual our 1st international guest about how groups of organisations and institutions can benefit society by creating innovation ecosystems to redefine what value in our society equates to. This means the realignment and integration of our economical systems, ecological systems and social systems.
These are a few of the Keywords that were dropped and that drove our conversation.
Still a little bit confused; An Innovation Ecosystem is first of all defined by the shifting of emphasis from competition to collaboration. They become fertile places for the exchange and cross pollination of knowledge, resources and capital. They resemble ecological ecosystems and are better suited to our complex world, than linear supply chains.
Jara takes us on an exploration of the process of creating a desert oasis.
So sit back and enjoy the ride.

“For years, normality has been stretched nearly to its breaking point, a rope pulled tighter and tighter, waiting for a nip of the black swan’s beak to snap it in two. Now that the rope has snapped, do we tie its ends back together, or shall we undo its dangling braids still further, to see what we might weave from them?” by Charles Eisenstein

Tips from Jara:
“The More Beautiful World our Hearts Desire” Charles Eisenstein A book whose title alone paints a beautiful picture of a connection to a deeper embodied knowing and hints to a world full of potential https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/228401/the-more-beautiful-world-our-hearts-know-is-possible-by-charles-eisenstein/
“A Time Between Worlds” Zak Stein A book of essays that focus on the current state of education in the USA and what the future could hold. The title has become a Metaphor often used by modern philosophers to describe our current world.
When thinking about how our social systems can resemble ecological ecosystems and how we can possibly bring our social, economical and ecological ecosystems into coherence, CS Holling’s Panarchy model of provides a good foundational framework for this experimentation and work.
Liberating structures use actually this theory for one of their workshops. Panarchy
