The New Society
BY WIEL SCHINS
@ VOL 24
ON DEC 09, 2014
In being a scientist, executive, consultant, trainer and author, Wiel Schins (1952) combines education and experience in developing visions of what he refers to as ‘the new society’. As a citizen, he is an avid supporter of the notion of a revolution in economic and social principles, not seen since the Stone Age.
He has identified the present sustainability movement as the wrong way towards this goal. In order to mobilise organisations and their leaders into a more adequate direction, he urges them, first of all, to mature their picture of the world. The geological landscape of the southern part of the Netherlands offers him an outstanding opportunity to replace erroneous perceptions.
