Our mission is to initiate, discuss, research and co-facilitate collaborative intelligence relating to basic needs, nurturing, creating safety, empowerment, individual flourishing and therefore healthy community. With basic needs the starting point for anyone is usually 'shelter' or the equivalent depending on one's chosen lifestyle and the second is food & water. We will be focusing on these first from the viewpoint that these things are essential and that any deprivation or stress not only disables the individual but also disables the community and society that the individual is part of. How do we create resilient, healthy and vibrant community? Have we now enough competition and the law of the jungle enough to create wise boundaries between essential needs and the 'needs' of the market, in housing and food, and could now explore co-operation, collaboration and how we could build a foundation of basic needs that is given and accepted as a necessary starting point for healthy individuals, community, economic health and optimal engagement of individuals in a collective existence.
