A global team of new paradigm web-tech designers and programmers are co-creating a “New Earth Directory” to catalogue, map, connect, showcase and curate all the world’s solutions and collectives. This portal will serve as a whole-systems, unified and distributed online directory, map, collaboration hub, academy, toolbox and geo-social network for people, projects, solutions, collectives, global unification and systemic transition.

Below is a small selection of new models that can help us to comprehend the practical possibilities of a whole-systems transformation into a society with wise and evolving social systems and technologies that ensure every human being’s basic needs are met, and that empower each of us to be free and supported in pursuing our passions and interests. As our directory grows those links with the most hits will reflect our popular interest and resonance, that we can also curate through peer review, polls and online voting systems.
