IAAI NETWORK OF GLOCHA CENTERS
IAAI plans to establish a network of GloCha Centers as a global initiative. The GloCha centers network management concept is “Management by shared vision, trust, financial transparency, common performance information system and long-time accountability”.
Key elements of the evolving GloCha center network system are:
- a vision on collaborative wealth generation based on shared (global) social responsibility
- decentralized open innovation and collaboration processes for knowledge based sustainable development wealth generation/accumulation (= “sustainable development (global) commons growth”)
- global citizenship ethics
- new global commons concepts
- new wealth indicators (which can document the contribution of science and education to sustainable development)
- common financial and impact assessment reporting information system as the elements providing cohesion among different GloCha systems elements
