Inspiring role models
Personal and economic crisis, isolation and disorientation have become visible signs of our time. But also a deep wish for a new and more truthful way of life seems to grow and to bring out beautiful visions and ideas. Many people change their inner attitudes. They search for new and better ways to live their lives and they search for like-minded people to realize their visions. A community of capable and inspired young people that are actively working on a spiritual and material renewal of our economic life can have a valuable impact on our society.
Social entrepreneurs embody many qualities that are of great importance in our time. They see possibilities that normal corporations often miss out and they solve problems that society and politics are unable to deal with. In the political and economic field we have a lot to learn from successful social entrepreneurs. We can learn about the power of a strong and heartfelt vision, of an authentic inner attitude, of how motivating this can be and how much it can inspire the lives of many employees and people around.
Social entrepreneurs usually work with extremely limited resources. In order to be successful they have to have a great capacity of solving problems with minimal expenses and with highest possible efficiency. They have to be creative and they have to know how to make a lot out of very little. These faculties make them qualified partners when it comes to solving problems of our economy and our society. As part of the social business workshops the architects elaborate possibilities for useful and meaningful cooperations.
Ways to a conscious economy
Economic crises, poverty and social tensions all over the world make clear that we must question some basic principles of our economic systems. The unjust distribution of wealth and income is challenging the peaceful togetherness in our societies. A big part of humanity is lacking the most basic needs for a dignified life; the growth imperative of our economy is damaging the environment and the human relations. In our search of new and socially balanced ways the Architects of the Future can contribute by showing new concepts and perspectives by their own examples.
