THE MAD EXPEDITION no zero Σ um
This Explorative Expedition depart to test out two fundamental questions and hypothesis:
Can we co-create (re)generative (eco)systems that creates a surplus of social, financial, and environmental value through NO ZERO SUM? I.e. shifting from a competing/exploiting paradigm to one of collective value exchange and creation, where the sum is bigger than the separate parts? Where we collectively expand and open up new markets by being life affirming towards all beings.
What capacity and innovation is required to do so? What are the platforms, process, tools, resources and activities needed to build (re)generative (eco)systems?
The Expedition will evolve through 4 main phASES:
1: Research & Data Collection
Collect data on intersectional discrimination through a MAD Virtual Bonfire, Desktop research, as well as Meetings with target group representatives.
2. GAME DEVELOPMENT
Adapt and expand content based on the already existing To be a Woman board game, enhanced based on collected stories and data.
3. WORKSHOP DEVELOPMENT
Develop the workshop methodology for combating intersectional discrimination, Produce bilingual workshop materials, and train workshops Facilitators.
4. LAUNCH & DISTRIBUTION
Host presentations on combating discrimination, Launch Advocacy media campaign, and present the final Project/Expedition results.
Why: We cannot continue to compete - inevitably exploiting natural and human resources - in a game where if one wins, the other loses. Such a zero sum system fuels a downward spiral that, combined with the exponential development of our time, accelerates the increasing gap of inequalities.
To truly strengthen civil society’s conditions for co-creating, establishing and further developing innovative solutions - as well as strengthening the cross sectorial and organisational capacity to create solutions beyond the ability to sustain - we need to level the playing field, by aligning incentives, based on real root causes and shared visions - pool resources and activities to amplify the collective ability to not just survive but thrive. The creative destruction of power structures as we know them. Only then can we foster real partnerships and ecosystemic solutions.
What: Build a Living Lab.
