Re-orienting profit-making decisions
Description: Influencing and training business and industrial decision-makers so that their decisions will reflect global stewardship. The effect is that business and industry decision-makers will be responsible global stewards by using their profits and surplus resources for the betterment of all mankind rather than for their own private benefit.
Context: An integral part of reallocating surplus resources by recasting the image of ownership from individual security to global stewardship.
Implementation: Tactics include: stewardship courses to supply stewardship studies in the use of economics, technology, and surplus resources within a structured curriculum, which will be available to government and corporate management leaders; imaginal awakening to use symbolic decor, short-courses and other tools to help recontextualize management leaders to the need for the stewardship dynamic at all levels of economics; research releases to provide up-dated information on the demonstration project, volunteer projects, and 'edge' information which will expand the image of global stewardship; leadership involvement to recruit decision-makers to the task of economic stewardship; and stewardship counselling to provide a body of experts which will advise business, industrial and government leaders as to how they may employ profits and surpluses to the greatest advantage for mankind. An example might be a director of a paper-making business, who sees a convention display about recycling waste and reads a newspaper article about the depletion of forest supplies. He subsequently takes part in a trans-industrial consultation where he discovers how he can utilize cloth surplus as a primary material for making paper.
