This submission proposes an open adaptive system model created in addition to the United Nations’ current structure. “Power” in the system is held by self-organised local people solving local issues, in ways that address global goals. The proposal consists of a framework of processes, technology (IT portal and cryptocurrency) and skills, that work together to create a “living system.” Action is taken by “action circles” (LACs), which are formed by people who can solve a local problem. Circle incubators teach LACs: effective mass collaboration skills, action planning and how to get funded etc. Projects may be funded with local currency and/or UN cryptocurrency provided by the UN, crowdfunding or charities etc. Project success is evaluated by other LACs, promoting global collaboration and keeping the “energy” (funding, effort and knowledge) in the system. Like a living system, an Evolutionary Organisation starts small and expands as it becomes more successful, drawing in more funding and participants as it grows.
