El Instituto para la Síntesis Planetaria es una ONG con estatus consultivo ante el Consejo Económico y Social de las Naciones Unidas (ECOSOC). Fue fundado en 1981 en Ginebra.

El Instituto trabaja para dar a conocer la estructura de los 10 grupos simientes, los 10 campos de servicio* como base posible para la cultura y la civilización del mundo del futuro.


* Los diez campos de servicio son: educación, política, religión, ciencia, psicología, economía (incluye finanzas), comunicaciones (incluye telepatía), observación entrenada, curación y creatividad.

    Transforming Our World in Harmony with Nature


    Nature is fundamental to the Economy and Society, the other two dimensions of sustainable development: It provides the resources that fuel the economy and human life itself. Moreover, while we, human beings, create our societies and economies, we are an integral part of Nature. We consist by virtue of the air we breathe, the water and biodiversity that nourishes us and our life energy: We are an integral part of Nature. Living in harmony with Nature requires not a human but a Nature-centric intuitive, approach.

    After the two years during which the SDGs were being developed it became clear that social and economic concerns were being dealt with more urgently than our rapidly deteriorating relationship with Nature and thereby human beings were transgressing Nature's planetary boundaries necessary for human life.

    The Partnership on the Rights of Nature. Integrating Nature into the Implementation of the SDGs, of which the IPS was a founding member, consisting of academics, indigenous peoples, civil society organizations and Nature communicators undertook as a part of the UN's Partnership Exchange to write reports, based on input from around the world, whereby a Nature-centric approach would be applied to all of the SDGs and almost all of the targets. They both completed these reports, and brought them together in this trilogy, arranged according to the SDGs that were the focus of discussions at the High Level Political Forums in 2016, 2017 and 2018, respectively. These are teaching manuals, reference works, and guides for government ministries, whch can be used as follows:

    1. To get insight into what constitutes a Nature-centric approach, read the Executive Summaries of the books that contain the goals that interest you most; and then read the Introductions and Conclusions to each of the 9 chapters in Part Two of the first book, mentioned below. This book was written last and contains most diverse features.

    2. To get ideas about how a Nature-centric approach can be applied to any of the SDGs or targets, just consult the relevant report. These are mentioned beside the appropriate link.

    3. If you are part of a government ministry or a civil society organization, check the chapter(s) in Part Two of each of the three books for “Means of Implementing” those SDGs that relate to focus of your work (SDG 17. Means of Implementation.)

    Here is a short summary of the meeting on 7th June.

    Rudolf Schneider guided the meditation on planetary synthesis, adding the Golden Rule as a seed-thought. We then shared ideas about various service activities for the welfare of humanity and the planet. Here is a short overview, arranged according to the fields of service of the 10 seed-groups.

    Susana Acle told us about a group meditation for the dissipation of glamour in which she participates with a group in Brazil and Bolivia. The meditation is available in Spanish and Portuguese (seed-group 2: trained observers).

    Marjolijn Snippe told us about the initiative https://oneshared.world/, which proposes a "Pledge of Interdependence" which anyone can sign on their website (seed-group 5: political organizers).

    Rudolf mentioned that we should promote the teaching of English for all children of the world, to allow everybody to communicate in a common language (seed-group 4: educators).

    Jennifer Viloria mentioned an initiative she has started in the U.K., together with others, aimed at enabling people to invest their capital in a way that is beneficial for the poor and for the environment (seed-group 9: economists and financiers).

    Nikita Dubrova talked about the possibility of using bitcoin mining equipment to generate heat for homes and to help finance the World Marshall plan designed by Pieter Kooistra (seed-groups 7 and 9: scientific servers, economists and financiers). He also stated that he thinks the 18th Sustainable Development Goal should address the issue of artificial intelligence.

    Lisinka Ulatowska mentioned that the Commons Cluster is just starting a new phase and that they will be glad to have the participation of those who are interested. The Commons Cluster has a mailing list, on which you can request to be put by writing to Taede Veenstra (taedev at gmail.com) (seed-group 5: political organisers).

    Another decision taken was to invite all IPS friends and co-workers to participate in these meditations on the first Sunday of the month. An invitation will be sent to our entire mailing list and the meetings will be announced on the IPS website.

    The meetings will continue to be held in English, but if any participants finds it difficult to speak in English, Alice can help with translation from French, German, Portuguese or Spanish.
