In our just published 4-part series of Medium articles we looked at the four Thematic Threads of the forthcoming r3.0 conference. In addition to keynote plenaries and breakout sessions that look at the pace, scale and scope of these pairings, r3.0 also exemplifies great use cases of its collective know-how dissimination through the r3.0 Advocation Partner and r3.0 Academic Alliance Partner Networks. These sessions of 2x3 use cases will be held on Day 2 and Day 3 of the conference.
We’re offering the Market-Making Ideas & Solutions Sessions in the same format as our Interactive Breakout Sessions for the 4 Thematic Pairings: in 3-hour sessions broken up into three sequential 50-minute slots, with 10-minute breaks interspersed. So without further ado, let’s get straight to introducing them!
Part One (Wednesday 9 September)
- The THRIVE Platform: A New Resource for Thresholds-Based Performance Assessment & Business Model Design: our Academic Alliance member Morris Fedeli will present on the THRIVE Platform, which enacts what the r3.0 Data Blueprint and Integral Data Flowchart call for: an Information System that integrates sustainability thresholds, allocated to the organizational level, across the multiple capitals; and what’s more, the Platform also enables business model design projections based on these context-based assessments.
- MultiCapital Scorecard: Concept (Integrating Doughnut Thresholds) & Practice (at Cabot Creamery Cooperative): Advocation Partner Mark McElroy will present the conceptual basis of the MultiCapital Scorecard as configured to the Doughnut Economics indicators, and then Jed Davis and Abby Snyder join Mark to present how Cabot Creamery Cooperative has implemented the MCS (in a case study similar to what’s included in r3.0’s Multicapitalism White Paper jointly produced with the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) that’s forthcoming.
- How Limited Companies & Cooperatives Break Regenerative Economies; and How the FairShares Commons Makes Them Antifragile: if the predominant economy creates degenerative outcomes, then how do we flip that equation? This is the question that Advocation Partners Graham Boyd and Magdalena Schäfer of Evolutesix answer with the FairShares Commons model that taps into Sociocracy and Holocracy and other tools to create a new Commons-based Regenerative Economy.
Part Two (Thursday 10 September)
- Practical Tools for Designing, Managing, and Monitoring Organizations and Networks as Regenerative Living Systems: Advocation Partner nRhythm developed its Organizational Health Index and Network Health Index for gauging regenerative capacity out of its work with the Savory Institute; Jeff Su will explain how they are now applying it with the Capital Institute’s Regenerative Communities Network to show how your organizations and networks could integrate living systems principles.
- Market Traction — Innovating Strategy Development for Flourishing Enterprise Futures: Building on Antony Upward and Eric Fath-Kolmes’ presentation at last year’s r3.0 Conference on the Norwegian Center of Excellence Node’s implementation of the Business Evolution Tookit, Advocation Partners Randy Sa’d, Stephen Davies and Manuel Riemer of the Flourishing Enterprise Institute will explain how this model is now being applied at the municipal level to integrate social justice and strong sustainability into city Climate Action Plans, with Claire Bennett providing on-the-ground perspective as Corporate Sustainability Officer of the City of Kitchener. For more on this, see here.
- Redesigning Products and Value Chains using Digital Platform: Martina Prox and Jörg Walden of Advocation Partner iPoint Systems will present how you can use digital platforms to redesign products and value chains, based on blockchain use cases. Moreover, they will focus on cloud technologies that support resilience, transparency, and sustainability in these volatile times and beyond.
