For this DEAL section we set out a series of questions in hope of prompting further activity and connectedness within the group and to help me explore and use two new concepts of wellbeing science, Beneficial Actualisation
and Quiet-Everyday Leadership to activate the Doughnut at a local or personal-level.
Here’s the first question:
What process, strategy or tipping point do we need to activate the Doughnut at a local-level or even at a personal-level?
If we use a paradigm or potential goal of Regen Melbourne (Melbourne Doughnut), say: A safe and just space for humanity where our regenerative and distributive wellbeing economy enables a network of communities and natural systems to thrive, or the safe and just spaces for all (self, others and nature) to thrive or similar, then what is / are the collective action, the safe and just seeds (the smallest of daily things) that we could co-create that would generate a systems-wide ripple effect for positive change?
Emerging concepts framed around Wellbeing and vitality for all that we have been exploring with UN Youth and the WHO Health and Wellbeing Hub, could be an interesting or alternate starting point to uncover a systems’ leverage point that considers the six conditions of systems change concurrently.
The concepts we are exploring are about the alignment of our Being, Doing and Knowing, Beneficial Actualisation
and its possible enabler Quiet-Everyday Leadership.
Quiet-Everyday Leadership is the smallest of daily things: our thoughts, our actions and our language about and for wellbeing and vitality for all. (Note: adapted from Julian Stood’s Quiet Leadership and Benefit Mindset’s Everyday Leadership)
If we then apply Quiet-Everyday Leadership to the paradigm or potential goal of our local Doughnut “the safe and just spaces for all to thrive” then what are:
The smallest of your daily thoughts for the safe and just spaces for all to thrive? (insert answer)
The smallest of your daily actions for the safe and just spaces for all to thrive? (insert answer)
