BUILDING NEW CRITICAL
INFRASTRUCTURES,
BENEFICIAL
FOR THE WORLD

Nature 2.0 invites you to realize your purpose-driven dream in a radical new way.

Find out below what you can do and how you can participate in Odyssey Momentum, November 13-15, 2020.

An invitation to get involved

During Odyssey Momentum, November 13-15, ten selected teams will build new solutions to the challenge of Nature 2.0. The most important result is that these new solutions are valuable for you.

Therefore, Nature 2.0 is inviting everybody that connects to the mission of Nature 2.0 to work with the teams, be the first to test and give feedback to the solutions, and then help launch the best solutions after the event. 

WHY WE'RE LOOKING FOR YOUR HELP

We live in a world where we treat every entity as-if it is a business. It is a way of looking and thinking in which we are trained and get acknowledged and reaffirmed every day. It is the narrative we know and speak. A narrative that we never question. But what are we missing out on if we follow this narrative? In this challenge we are going to explore alternative narratives and find out what they could bring.

What if we take the starting point of nature: critical needs like food, water, movement, energy are the results of emergent ecosystems- provided by informal vital infrastructures. What should be the nature of a beneficial critical infrastructure? What should be its purpose and what their core values? In our challenge we are going to play around with all the different forms it could have inspired by different narratives, forms of symbioses (co-creation).
Nature 2.0 Impact

Can you imagine an incorruptible resilient well engineered delivering of critical goods and services beneficial for the wellbeing of all our worlds inhabitants? In our challenge workshop we start with your purpose driven dream. Together we co-create on unimaginable ways to make it happen. What if we start to look for the elements we deem normal in our current narrative, but which are actually crazy? It is a first step to identify room for change. Join us on our quest where we hunt for new narratives and paradigm shifts!

Impact

We are looking for the new critical infrastructures (composed by emergent ecosystems) operating beneficial for all. What if your solutions and ecosystems are part of that?

In the past 2 years we discovered that these ecosystems beneficial for society could function in radical different ways. For example, they operate as commons or as an ecosystem towards abundance. We also found out that independent of what your purpose-driven dream is, they all could have very similar building blocks so collaboration comes naturally.

In our current world our (Critical) infrastructures are not in competition. What if we could find ways to reinforce them and build on one another? The result of your endeavor will most probably be a new kind of distributed organization to fulfill your purpose-driven dream. What if it could also be the missing link to a new co-creation partner for today’s critical infrastructures? Imagine solutions that function in a robust and resilient way, benefitting all. What if these could help realize your purpose-driven dream or vision? Do you foresee co-creation with the current critical infrastructures?

WHAT WE ARE BUILDING

The challenge for the teams and everyone helping them is:

“Each day of your life you eat, you drink, you move, you breathe and live as part of an ecosystem, the earth, our planet. The only one we have. All species need food, water, places to move and live. They make it work (in an emergent way). Today man, lives and does business. What could happen if you’d create critical infrastructures purely purpose driven? If you could just make it work without it having to be a business. What would a beneficial critical infrastructure look like?”
