Change has been the only constant throughout the centuries. Never before have we had so much comfort, and never before have we had so many opportunities to build a world where everyone is so well off, including you and I. Utopia is within reach.
And yet, we are still waking up every day in a world where democracies are under threat, a world where poverty and unfair inequality is on the rise again, on a planet that is gasping for breath, caught in an ecologically unsustainable web.
I hope the world is a place where your life is hopefully still good, yet you are noticing that the pressure is increasing. Perhaps, like many other people, you are desperately searching for a different, more sustainable way of living.
Daring to think differently and making conscious choices will take you a long way but is not enough: Our current economic system seriously hinders sustainability. Fortunately, alternative solutions are available for us right now. That is the canvas of Happonomy; we are an ecosystem of people and organisations that want to move, together with you, towards more sustainability and a better quality of life for everyone.
Aspirations obviously need to be built on sound long-term goals. Therefore, it is important to outline our organisation’s 6 long term priorities. They serve as goals underpinning our mission to drive the quality of our lives forward, regenerate our planet, and help upgrade capitalism along the way.
Increase people’s awareness about what is valuable in their life and the role of work, money and technology.
Support individuals to develop their full potential, not burdened by the limitations of our current economic system.
Contribute to build more and more successful value-driven starting organisations.
Support leaders to sustainably transform existing organisations.
Supporting local decision makers to increase the quality of life and sustainability in their municipality or city through resilient citizens, the provision of sustainable employment and a sustainable local currency.
Supporting policy makers to redesign our economic model so that it focuses more on sustainability and quality of life.
So there you have it, our not-so-strategic road map for our organisation. All goals have been initiated one way or the other already. The scope seems daunting but from our perspective this is the best shot we have to make sure that all inhabitants of this pale blue dot thrive. Yes, it will take years, many hands, hearts and minds, but you know what they say… if you want to go fast, go alone, if you want to go far, go together.
