NATURALISING THE ECONOMY-APPLYING THE LAWS OF NATURE TO ENTERPRISE DESIGN
What is the impulse in humans that says we have dominion over Earth and her creatures?
Is it born in us, or is it because we are born into a structure and system that says we build our enterprise and wealth off extracting from the Commons? Many indigenous people knew to walk the land with reverence.
As William H. Gates Sr said..show me a first generation fortune and I will show you a successful partnership between a talented individual and societies invisible venture capitalist, the Commons.
Rather than commodifying nature, perhaps we might naturalise the economy.
Perhaps we might apply the laws inherent in nature to our enterprise design, the way we co-ordinate humans, each other. To our governance and legal structures.
Is it not time for us to place our home planet as the sacred place that we refuse to desecrate?
To know that our creatures, all of them, including us, are inter-dependant, inter-related, and completely synergistic. The extinction of one breaks the integrity of the whole.
It is towards this more beautiful world that Syntropic Enterprise is dedicated. How to do this, how to lead change. To build new models, maps and mindsets that make our current ones obsolete.

About Christine McDougall
CREATING A WORLD WHERE SYNTROPIC ENTERPRISES ARE UBIQUITOUS. SYNTROPIC = LEAVING EVERYTHING BETTER
As the Founder and Chief Steward of Syntropic.world – Christine works with leaders and enterprises globally who have a commitment to being the pioneers of enterprise change. Christine has the ability to completely re-imagine business, its role in our world, and its potential for a future for all humans. She experiences a deeper level of truth than most through applying synergetics (Buckminster Fuller’s anticipatory design science) and the working laws of Universe to enterprise design and human co-ordination. She has a way of articulating this so others can see it as well. Christine questions the most basic assumptions that drive our complex systems and can map that back to what is needed today. She is committed to the creation of Syntropic enterprises as ubiquitous.
