A new way of communication: generative communication.
A new way of designing: regenerative design.
A new way of ownership: generative ownership.
A new way of production: regenerative economy.
A new way of organizing ourselves: regenerative culture
We have to understand how we could interrelate in generative and non-aggressive ways. Dialogue is a generative way of communication because it generates a space of meaning. It generates something new and valuable. The choice-creating type of dialogue generates new choices. Our old ways to produce food or things were exploitative: they exploit humans and the planet. But we are already able to design new modalities of production which are regenerative to our social and ecological environments. Through regenerative agriculture, we can produce better qualitative food while we regenerate the soil or the seas and enrich the environment. We realized that our old legal systems are enhancing the old exploitative ways of ownership and production and we start to renew them in order to enhance the Nature rights, the common property, the P2P relations and other generative social architectures, to strengthen the generative ownership etc.
Generative, Participative, Collaborative. There is a word that brings together all these attributes: P2P relation. As our society faces a series of structural crises, a new social, political and economic dynamic is emerging: peer-to-peer. P2P is a type of social relations in human networks. P2P is also a technological infrastructure that makes the generalization and scaling up of such relations possible. Thus P2P enables a new way of organization, production and self-governance. P2P creates the potential for a transition to a society and economy that can be generative toward people and Nature. P2P ideally describes systems in which any human being can participate in the creation and maintenance of shared resources while benefiting from it. A society could be seen and designed as a commons, as a shared resource. P2P can be seen as a relational dynamic through which peers can freely collaborate with each other and creates value.
