Anneoes is the lead author of the Participatory Framework for co-creating an AGI Constitution, which is initiated by EARTHwise Centre in collaboration with SingularityNET, AQAL Foundation, and others to co-steward AGI as a global Commons. Today, at this pivotal tipping point time, we offer this participatory framework for guiding the creation of an eventual global AGI Constitution. This document is intended to serve as a living compass for charting an unprecedented course toward a thrivable future, so we may steward the transformative power of Artificial Intelligence as a global commons. This is an evolving and open document, where you can share your ideas for what may soon become the most important governance priority of our time.

The r3.0 Educational Transformation Blueprint for which Dr. Anneloes Smitsman served as the lead author, provides 7 Transformative Learning Perspectives for Regeneration and Thrivability. The seven interconnected Learning Perspectives form the foundation for the inner and outer shifts towards regeneration and thrivability. Each Learning Perspective is explored through a three-fold structure that offers various dimensions of each theme. The full Blueprint is summarized through a list of recommendations.

Into the Heart of Systems Change

Into the Heart of Systems Change, is the Ph.D. dissertation of Dr. Anneloes Smitsman, and presents her research as an external researcher at the Maastricht Sustainability Institute (formerly ICIS), Maastricht University, the Netherlands, from September 2014 to August 2019.

The dissertation offers a diagnostic integral framework for addressing key systemic barriers of mechanistic systems and growth models, which are at the root of our worsening sustainability crisis. The dissertation includes a Transition Plan for a Thrivable Civilization through 7 steps.

A life-centric qualitative growth model is offered with 5 Future Archetypes through a narrative of thrivability, instead of mere sustainability. Various methods are combined into an integral approach for systemic transformation, weaving together indigenous wisdom, new paradigm cosmology, informational sciences, quantum physics, evolutionary biology, and complexity sciences - grounded in the praxis of inner and outer systems change. 

Transition Plan for a Thrivable Civilization

This article provides a summary of Into the Heart of Systems Change, and its proposed Transition Plan for a Thrivable Civilization that can be summarized in 7 steps:

  1. Address and transform the systemic thrivability barriers through transformation strategies that address the dualistically polarising dynamics of mechanistic systems.
  2. Develop future creative capacities through evolutionary learning processes that are embedded within evolutionary learning communities and evolutionary learning ecosystems.
  3. Apply evolutionary archetypes for our societal and human development, like the 5 Future Archetypes that feature in the EARTHwise Constitution and are applied in the role functions of the EARTHwise Collaboratory and the Hypha DAO, as well as the character design of the Eloywn: Quest of Time game.
  4. Develop regenerative, inclusive, and distributive economies that are designed as evolutionary living systems.
  5. Develop governance systems and institutional design for the future that enables the transition to a thrivable civilization, by empowering people with the means and opportunities for stewarding our future wellbeing together.
  6. Work with the transformative potentials of social tipping points dynamics for the required societal transformations and grassroots engagement.

Deepak Chopra, M.D.

World-Renowned Pioneer in Personal Transformation

“Full of wisdom and insight, with a vision of the future everyone can benefit from in our age of change amid uncertainty. The Future Humans Trilogy by Anneloes Smitsman and Jean Houston is an act of true compassion, which exhibits empathy and understanding that leads to answers, and the answers are the essence of the world’s wisdom traditions. The stories in this Trilogy speak directly to the heart, where all inner journeys begin. When the heart awakens, the person is transformed. This Trilogy is living proof that such a radical change is desirable, possible, and necessary in everyone’s life."  

Jean Houston, Ph.D.

Principal founder of the Human Potential Movement

"Anneloes Smitsman is a leader and pioneer in the development of the architecture of creating civilizations that enhance the wellbeing of both person and planet. In this she is a treasure trove of ingenuity and wisdom. She is one whom leaders in social evolution regard as the person who has the genius to implement the revolutionary solutions and visions that can advance the necessary development of both people and planet. I, as well as many others, regard Anneloes as a female Einstein. I met prof Einstein when I was 8 years old, and he told me that his greatest quality was imagination, a quality which Anneloes shares abundantly and which informs her extraordinary creative gifts. She is a living example of what it means to walk the path of the emerging future human. 

Knowing her very well and having worked with her in the development of our books and courses, I can honestly say that she is one of the brightest minds I have ever met. She is a true renaissance woman who brings her unique gifts to the kinds of design and implementation that have the power to shift the negative trajectories of our present world, and thus she creates the designs and solutions that introduce a whole new architecture that inspires while it implements the creation of the promise and dream of a thriving world. Anneloes brings together the tools and the practical knowledge to accomplish this evolutionary task.” 

Lynne McTaggart

World-Renowned Pioneer in the New Science of Consciousness

Dr. Anneloes Smitsman’s original research has relentlessly delved into revolutionary ideas and brought radical new scientific truths to light. And her background as a creative force of systemic transformation in education, economics, governance, and ecology has resulted from a marriage between her scientific originality and her extensive experience in the spiritual and mystical realms. The Future Humans Trilogy is a work of profound hope during these tumultuous times, by offering a powerful new definition of ourselves and a vision of unlimited future possibility."

Bruce Lipton, Ph.D.

World-Renowned Pioneer Evolutionary Biology

“To survive through evolutionary chaos, we must first recover our creative powers. In Return of the Avatars, book 2 of the Future Humans Trilogy, distinguished visionaries Anneloes Smitsman and Jean Houston offer vital tools for accessing, activating, and empowering innate creative consciousness. Return of the Avatars is a profoundly important science-based guide for future humans to become Cosmic architects of a sustainable and thrivable world. I highly recommend this readable book as a valuable and empowering contribution in nurturing our evolving civilization.”

Jude Currivan, Ph.D.

Cosmologist, Futurist & Author of The Cosmic Hologram

"Through her writing and teaching, Anneloes’s authenticity and wisdom radiate with a crystal clarity and resonate with compassionate grace. Gently she guides readers and students through journeys of inner and outer discovery, inspiring and empowering them to re-member their own true selves and sense of purpose. As a teacher, guide and companion, she is a loving and hopeful gift of Spirit to the world." 

Ervin Laszlo, Ph.D.

Scientist, Noble Peace Prize Nominee

"We live in the most crucial epoch in the recent history of humanity. We need to rethink where we are going, and change the way we go. We need to BE the change we want to see in the world.  This calls for leadership — leading ourselves to be the change we need. This is perhaps the most vital quest of our time. Joining the  leadership programs of Dr. Anneloes Smitsman could be one of the most effective steps you could now take."
