How To

Invitation to Contribute to Vibrancy Knowledgebase

Hi!  As an active member of one of the global communities that support Vibrancy efforts (Vibrancy, ISC/CHOICE), we invite you to join us in the next stage of our global community, creating a network of people working with and evolving ecosynomics through (1) the Strategic Clarity strategic systems framework and (2) the abundance-based agreements framework. The intention is to share what we are learning in our work with agreements and strategic systems collaboration.

We want all of you to share the stories of your experiences in this work.  We are sharing these stories through video interviews.  We invite you to learn more about the work of your Vibrancy colleagues by interviewing them, adding to our shared knowledgebase.

We start with a 20-minute video interview, where we explore some of the key elements and insights from a specific project. We share this video interview, with supplemental documents from the project.  To start you off, this page provides:

  • The knowledgebase interview process
  • video explaining the process
  • Links to example interviews in the knowledgebase
  • Time for Zoom call for Q&A
  • How to submit your knowledgebase interviews
