Ecosocial Equilibrium: Synergizing Wellbeing and Health, Vitalising Learning Ecosystems.
Ecosocial Equilibrium (EE) represents the dynamic alignment of beneficial and holistic flows of energy and information within and between the interdependent parts of a living system. It signifies the optimal state of functioning, where a synergetic effect that transcends homeostasis (functioning and surviving) and has the human potential of health, thriving (taking hold) and wellbeing, flourishing (blossoming) in concert.
The equation EE = ƒ(V,B,H,C) within the context of Wellbeing and Health (W+H) serves as a heuristic formula, providing an explanatory framework for understanding the determinants of Ecosocial Equilibrium.
This formula posits that Ecosocial Equilibrium emerges as the outcome of the cumulative interplay among Functioning (ƒ), Vitality (V), Beneficial Amplitude (B), Holistic Frequencies (H) Intra-Inter Competencies and Contextual Capabilities (C). The W+H Alignment Model is a visual representation of the equation, and the Ecosocial Equilibrium Symbol depicts looking through the lens of the Inner Development Goals and Sustainable Development Goals working in harmony.
A collaborative tool for regenerative and transformative change.
Ecosocial Equilibrium sets a guiding orientation for collaborative efforts aimed at co-creating effective contextual frameworks, models and tools for systems change. These endeavours serve to validate the proposition that through the systematic application (knowledge flows) of evidence-informed principles, practices and resources, coupled with the cultivation of continual and cumulative interplay among the interdependent parts of a living system, a synergistic effect greater than the simple sum of its parts is likely to emerge.
By emphasizing collaboration and co-creation, Ecosocial Equilibrium highlights the importance of collective action and the integration of diverse perspectives. It recognizes the significance of evidence-informed approaches to guide decision-making and the adoption of policies and practices that promote positive outcomes for both individuals and the broader ecological and social systems they inhabit.
The dynamic interplay among the interdependent parts of a living system is crucial in fostering beneficial and holistic change. It involves the harmonious alignment of Functioning, Wellbeing, Health, Conditions, and Time, with each component contributing to the overall equilibrium of a thriving and flourishing system.
Overall, Ecosocial Equilibrium not only represents an aspirational concept but also calls for practical action. By embracing collaboration, evidence-informed approaches and the recognition of interdependencies, we can advance systems change and unlock the regenerative (horizontal development) and transformative (vertical development) potential that lies within ourselves and across our interconnected world.
Ecosocial Equilibrium is an ambitious yet calculated vision that introduces Everyday Quiet Leadership, that starts with the smallest of daily things: our words, our thoughts, our actions about and for wellbeing and health of all.
