The Provocative Proposal, Values & Principles
What you see here is a living version of values and principles of the network. The first version was created at the network meeting in Anavyssos, Greece on September 24, and is be updated as new thoughts are reflected in our discussions.
|What do we mean with the addition of “Begeistring” to the English language?
“Begeistring is rather beguiling!”
“I imagine that the word Begeistring is something very germanic but the feeling and meaning of the word must be universal.”
“Translated it means “our souls are filled the theme we are “begeistered about”
“How can we find good and useful synonyms for it? It tells us how we allow ourselves to be in touch with our soul in combination with enthusiasm.
“For Dutch people begeistring is a very powerful word, it means more than inspiring (leadership). So let’s introduce begeistring in English
“We want to find solutions of pride, to learn from each other and to invite each other to new challenges.
The idea of a self-organizing Network fascinates us,
We are actively contributing by sharing with each other and learning by each other.
In learning through sharing and sharing through learning
