A cultural technique or a cultural technology is an evolutionary step for humanity. It is a technique that humanity as a whole has learned, i.e. agriculture, reading and writing, digitalization, industrialization. When I refer to cocreation as a cultural technique I want to say that I feel that for the challenges that we as humanity are facing today, cocreation is of the same importance and that we all as humanity have to learn to cocreate to face these challenges.

Crisis leads to creation: cocreation
Change is the nature of crisis. And a crisis has no direction. Per definition. It is exactly when we are in dire need of a new direction, but are yet to find one, that we can be said to be in crisis. Read More
The mission of Cocreation Foundation is to map, develop, test and establish the cultural technique of cocreation for better global governance. Our Theory of Change describes why, how and what we are doing to achieve our mission:
Governance processes urgently need an update on a regional, national and transnational level to tackle challenges like climate change, plastic in the oceans or effectively fight pandemics like the Corona crisis. Read More
I met Michel Bauwens at the Elevate Festival in Graz. At the first warm day of the year, one day before the Corona crisis hit Europe full on, we met at this avantgarde festival of music, discussions and dialogue about human nature and the transformation and future of our society.

Ernst Ulrich von Weizsäcker is promoting a new kind of enlightenment, inspired by global humanism and eastern philosophy. He believes that we have to invent new products and business models who are climate efficient. The price of a good has to be calculated according to the environmental damage it evokes. It does not make sense to compare the Corona crises to the climate crises since we are dealing with very different framework conditions especially concerning the time of the exponential curve.

We developed the Global Cocreation Forum to give people a feeling for cocreation in action.

Each of us come from different but complementary backgrounds, so we decided to spend the summer consolidating our networks and slowly enlarging our circles of connection.
To give people a feeling for cocreation in action, we developed a workshop format to explore some themes - such as collective healing and compassion - that we felt needed to be considered in global governance processes. Read More
