There seems to be a growing gap between what we consider to be the deeper values of life and the values that drive our economic system. Understanding this gap is central to Value Flow. The goal of this research is to understand human society as an integral part of live a living system. Underlaying the inspirational work of many change makers such as Kate Raworth, Charles Eisenstein, Nipun Mehta, John Fullerton and many others, there is a deep shift of values that are intrinsically human, and we dare to say universal. What would be the result of a society that commits towards multiple capital forms flows in alignment with their values? Like Davide Snowden, father of the Cynefin Framework proposes as simple bases for deep change: can we have more stories of such alignment?
