Raison d’être

“There are no prizes for predicting the rain, only prizes for building the ark”
Don Beck, author of Spiral Dynamics – email communication

raison d’être of The Sustainability Thing is that we collectively, both globally and locally, are facing extraordinarily complex matters of concern: requiring of us different ways of working and being.

My name is Jenni Goricanec and I am searching for a new and very different form of “ark” to respond. Further I am asking others to join me on this search.

About Jenni

I am interested in working with others to enhance the sustainability of human systems. My practice is to engage with people by drawing on their own ways of knowing and understanding. I orient people toward the “pull” of future intentions, rather than the blind "push" of past habits and "best practice". I encourage people to break out of their cognitive silos, to think laterally and to focus on the whole problem systemically in all its inter-disciplinary complexity. My practice works through the essential processes of innovation – mobilising resources, enrolling peers, engaging allies and building public support. This form of engineering practice is about manoeuvring, dissolving boundaries, always being in action, and recognising that function, congruence and transformation are emergent properties generated through active learning by doing.
