What is Mission? - Mission 5
|What is Mission?|
Using ISD’s dimensions, principles, and framework for change, MISSION envisions a prosperous, peaceful, democratic, moral and visionary nation, living in harmony with Nature and energized by creative, honest, responsible citizens who are aware of their divine origin and purpose; citizens who have united together to sustain a free, vibrant and diverse culture, a broad-based and inclusive economy, a participatory, just and compassionate governance that contribute positively to world affairs.
Societal structures and their institutions do not run themselves. Ultimately human beings run institutions and systems. As is well known in the computer world, if we put “garbage in”, we get “garbage out”. Unskilled, unimaginative, mediocre, and emotionally challenged individuals cannot be authentic agents for addressing the challenge of poverty, corruption, environmental destruction and so on. If people are ill-prepared, then transformational initiatives will fail.
Because qualified human beings are at the center of the change effort, MISSION, in the near future, will set up an Institute for Societal Leadership. This Institute will train individuals to become visionary, moral, socially and emotionally intelligent skilled and productive agents of change in culture, politics, the economy, and Nature – all in pursuit of a sustainable society.The Institute will soon offer cognitive, relational and skills training as well as mentorship possibilities in the area of Cultural Creativity, New Politics, Green Entrepreneurship, and Restoration Ecology. These advanced modules will require passing the course on self-transformation offered by the related Institute for Self-Transformation. (See above.)
