The Wheel of Co-Creation is a whole system worldview created by renowned thought leader Barbara Marx Hubbard. It identifies 12 sectors of endeavor in an active society, including arts, economics, education, environment, government, health, infrastructure, justice, media, relations, science and spirituality.
When they identify what is new and beneficial in any of these sectors, individuals and communities begin to feel more confident and form a positive worldview. By looking at what is truly working instead of absorbing the bad news showcased by traditional media, we are inspired with a renewed sense of hope for the planet and collective future.
Through this series of articles, the first of its kind to use the Wheel of Co-Creation, fresh perspectives and new developments related to economics, art, health and more have been presented.
Amidst the election turmoil and other dismaying world events there have been exciting developments with the Wheel of Co-Creation in other parts of the world. It was presented by the Foundation for Conscious Evolution at both the United Nations (UN), in New York, and to the House of Lords, in London. On November 3, an Office for the Future that incorporates the Wheel of Co-Creation was proposed as a cabinet-level department of the UN.
Today, an Office for the Future in the UN, originally proposed by Hubbard in 1984 when her name was placed in nomination for the vice presidency of the United States on the Democratic ticket, has potential to provide humanity with an opportunity to solve the unprecedented challenges of the 21st century by communicating, connecting and synergizing what is good, loving and creative in the world.
The Office for the Future, once established, also would support the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, or Global Goals; a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. Achieving the Global Goals requires the partnership of governments, the private sector, civil society and citizens alike to make sure we leave a better planet for future generations
Included in the Office for the Future design is a Peace Room at the same level of sophistication as a war room. In a war room, enemies are tracked and strategies are devised to defeat them. Similarly, the Office for the Future Peace Room will track and analyze breakthroughs and innovations that assist an emerging world that works for all. The Office for the Future process highlights potential opportunities for collaboration and synergy between innovators, and communicates intelligence that emerges locally and regionally to the main Office for the Future. The intent is that countries around the world will open Offices for the Future using whole systems theory, which fosters exponential rather than linear patterns of growth.
The beauty of this high-impact process is in its grassroots appeal. At the foundational level, citizens of any country can invite local family and friends to participate. In these small groups, participants share intentions and resources, allowing the wisdom and wealth of the community to be exchanged. This bonds them together and allows each person to fulfill their life purpose for the benefit of all. Thus, ordinary citizens are inspired and empowered to achieve their heart’s desire.
This innovative, top-down/bottom-up approach connects us to the vast movement for positive change and to each other as the family of humanity.
