Current global challenges, such as ecological crisis and militarization, are results of existing hierarchical institutions of power. That is the reason why those institutions will never be able to address them in a proper way.
Those increasing challenges are outcomes of a growing complexity of the technological and social systems of humanity. Militarisation is growing due to increasing number of actors and complexity of connections in the global political arena.
Those problems cannot be solved by inventing any new technology, we need to redesign our way of thinking. Ecosystem of our planet is much more complex than any technological project ever created by human beings. We need to get rid of mechanistic hierarchy and embrace more holistic and evolutionary approach to reality.
There are many organisations, institutions, communities and projects that are shaping a new world.
We have a hypothesis that the new thinking should be based on principles of evolution that can be observed around us.
One of such principles is diversity. Different forms of organisations and different ways of livie should have an ability to thrive. Different hypotheses should be tested. We need to support the culture of experiment and prototyping.
Technoashram should be a place for such experiments. Technoashram Protopia Retreat is the prototype we are ready to deploy.
This prototype is created around several ideas: Living together, Prototyping the future, combining technology and practices.
Who are we waiting for
We invite those, who are making the world to be a place of desired future. Who are ready to arrive to "here and now", willing to coexist together and open to discover something about themselves and about the world.
We invite those, who are ready to embrace new technologies as posssible tool to solve global, glocal and local problems.
Who are ready to embrace traditional practices as wholistic approach to deal with complexity.
