Whole-systems Interdisciplinary Collaborative Partnerships: Solutions that provision the Sustainability Economy cannot be envisioned through the bounded thinking of any one discipline or narrow range of disciplines. The whole-systems collaborative partnership model informs decisions through the collective consciousness that emerges from dialogue among diverse disciplines using innovation-intervention techniques that protect the collective from the bounded thinking of any one discipline.
Local-global Collaborative Partnerships: Partner local and global knowledge to empower local communities to realize their hopes, dreams, and aspiration in way that build a sustainable future. These partnerships integrate local expertise (government, industry, faith-based organizations, not-for-profit entities, and higher-education institution) and global expertise (global network of sustainability entities) to help build the sustainability economy.
Industry-University Collaborative Partnerships: Partner with industry to help companies green their production and facilities, to add value to waste, and to take advantage of the economy potential of the sustainability economy.CBO-university UF Collaborative Partnership: The CBO-University UF Partnership integrates the sustainability innovation of an ecobalance planning and design non-profit (CMPBS) with an international network of university-based sustainability initiatives (at BSU, PUCRS, FUB) to empower humanity to become integral components of balanced resource flows; thereby allowing the Earth to heal itself and return to healthy resource flows; and for humankind to become healthy and to prosper in a sustainability economy.
