Share The World’s Resources (STWR) has launched a new campaign in order to catalyse a broader public debate on the need to strengthen and scale up diverse forms of economic sharing at the local, national and global level.
In this ongoing series of studies by STWR’s founder, Mohammed Sofiane Mesbahi, he investigates the meaning and significance of the principle of sharing from spiritual and psychological as well as social, economic and political perspectives.
The implications of moving towards a global sharing economy are immense, but there are many reasons to embrace this simple concept - which is far more radical and urgent than it may at first seem. As a primer from STWR makes clear, the necessity of sharing the world’s resources is central to the most critical issues that humanity faces in the 21st century.
In an increasingly unequal and unsustainable world, governments must urgently move beyond the restrictive political and economic ideologies of the past and embrace solutions that meet the common needs of people in all countries. This primer outlines the extent of the interconnected global crises we face, and points the way towards an alternative approach to managing the world’s resources based upon international cooperation and economic sharing.
Nevarnost ni komercializacija kot taka, temveč je nevarno naše stalno istovetenje z njeno notranjo in zunanjo manifestacijo, ki človeško inteligenco odvrača od narave in duhovne evolucije. Kaj je torej zlo drugega kot naše istovetenje z njim?
If the sharing economy movement is to play a role in shifting society away from the dominant economic paradigm, it will have to get political. And this means guarding against the co-optation of sharing by the corporate sector, while joining forces with a much larger body of activists that have long been calling - either explicitly or implicitly - for more transformative and fundamental forms of economic sharing across the world.
As the Sharing Spring kicks off, more and more people are participating in localised forms of sharing in response to the failures of government and big business. While this is right and imperative, it is equally vital that citizens call upon their political representatives to integrate the principle of sharing into governmental policies on national and global levels.
Many people at this time of social, political and economic turmoil are voicing the need for a ‘revolution’ in one form or another, with a major focus on all that is wrong in the world’s richest and most powerful country – the United States. Dr Zeki Ergas has taken up this question in a long political essay about the need for a second American revolution to build a better world.
