A longer term view, if you may. In reality, they were just concepts which were made a reality due to previous historical transformations. It is but obvious that our current transformations should throw up new concepts and realities that stem from them. But, we are often prisoners of what we aim to leave behind. The challenge is to be able to reimagine without falling into the conceptual traps of the past. Although some politicians and corporations may parrot the simplistic idea that doubling GDP will double contentment, it is neither true or ecologically viable.
One can argue that this deep interconnection between the crisis and our most deeply held beliefs can also be a good thing. They present us with not an opportunity to not just fix problems as they come, but a responsibility to flip the system. Consciously that can only happen through imagination. Since we have focused so much in fixing problems in the existing system we have done a poor job of imagining a new one.
Consequently, we are not sure how to title the story of our future. This is why, we believe, the future is Untitled. Most science fiction is filled with such ideas. Why are we so inept at this? Well, not everyone is. There are numerous, powerful examples of wise imaginations of our collective futures. Untitled is a global alliance of over forty members initiated by the think tank Demos Helsinki. It aims to reimagine the central institutions of our society and to experiment on how to rebuild them.
What should democracy look like? What should our relationship with trees be like? What might unemployment mean in the future? These and many more questions are being asked by our alliance members. Experiments initiated by the alliance will be worked on, tested, and developed over the next 10 years.
We are undergoing structural changes in employment, with no adequate support mechanisms in place. Consequently, a big group of people are being treated unfairly and have great financial worries, leading to anxiety, depression and marginalisation.
It aggregates worries and resources, and through machine learning helps people respond with a combination of peer, financial, existing public support mechanisms as well as recognising and developing personal strengths. Additionally early support lowers costs, for the person and the public sector. Grip is initiated by a company specially set up for it, and it is seeking funding and a team to run first pilots.

However, we lack the local spaces, both physical and virtual, in which good quality, informed participation can take place. By finding existing spaces, we can access existing networks and give people the opportunity to participate in familiar settings, increasing accessibility.
Libraries are already well understood as places to connect to knowledge, it is a logical step already taken in many places to go from there to participating in action and decision making — locally and beyond.
If you run a library or other local physical space that might be suitable, and would like to connect us with your local networks, we at Democratic Society can offer our expertise on democracy and participation, and connection into global democracy networks. We are hoping to create a network of initial pilots, working with Public Libraries , during To collaborate, contact Anthony Zacharzewski, ajz10 at demsoc.
There is an increasing need to provide new ways for marginalised people such as immigrants, unemployed and homeless people to connect to society. At the same time, the climate crisis and the collapse of biodiversity forces us to find new solutions also in social housing. Sustainable housing with assets of good life is a concept that combines dwelling with community income and support for ecological lifestyles, mainly through participating in the chores of the housing company and tending common spaces, roof-top and yard with food production.
One of its initiators is Y—Foundation whose mission is to continue Housing First model to enable all inhabitants a fair transition towards carbon neutral living. The housing community and living environment in a carbon-neutral wooden city block combined provide a sense of community, possibility to reach sustainable lifestyles, attachment to the neighbourhood, food and work for the dwellers, acting as springboard and an interface to the rest of the society.
The experiment is in concepting phase and seeking plots for building, as well as finance and expertise in alternative economic models and urban ecology. Any social or political envisioning is constrained by an invisible frame of view of the nature of human beings. Politics of Being is a political movement that starts by asking who we are as humans in this day and age and based on that what we should want politically.
It incorporates ideas from philosophy, wisdom traditions, technology and neuro science to a new value based political movement and programme for wiser society. Through politics of being people can relate to politics through more personal, yet shared ways.
