Description_LongText'''Abundance for all''' recasts the original wording of [[wikipedia:Sustainable_Development_Goal_1|SDG 1]], "ending poverty," in a more generous and generative light. ==SDG Shortcomings== To begin with, one could argue that eradicating poverty is all but impossible to achieve and very safe (for business as usual) to include as an SDG. The idea of poverty was created by the same extractive and destructive mode of development that is sustained by the SDGs. It was introduced as a seed of self-destruction (like communicable diseases, chemical dependencies, greed, fragmentation, etc.) that enabled colonial powers to create dependencies in traditional communities by imposing their model of extractive development. Poverty exists and persists in so far we continue to see the world in those terms and do not recognize it as self-fulfilling prophecy of extractive activity. What we can do is eliminate the need for poverty as pattern that we continue to propagate, we can replace it with a pattern of abundance. ==Living systems== Living processes generate abundance. Every place on Earth, although each amazingly diverse, due to varying conditions everywhere, is defined by abundant relation and generative capacity. Anything that could potentially be seen as waste for one process, is vitalizing for another. Each unique place self-organizes, via that abundant relations and generative capacity, adapting to the larger conditions and patterns that shape it over time. Living systems organize themselves via patterns of a multiplicity of relations in every direction, and in so doing, create their own abundance. The living beings develop simultaneously on at least three levels: on the individual level, where each expressing their singularity while relating as part of larger wholes (communities, societies); at the species level, where beings express unique modes of being and capacities in a place (niches, habitat); and, at the ecosystem level, where extraordinary diversity of modes of beings conspire to regenerate the conditions for Life (biosphere). ==Place-centric abundance== The idea of ''[[Special:FormEdit/Pattern/Pattern:Place-centric|place-centric]]'' abundance in Human communities is a radical one, in that it enables, empowers and requires communities to take charge of their own development, in ways that align with their shared values and that produce most long-term value for everyone in that place. Behind this is the recognition that each person, community, place is a unique ''[[Special:FormEdit/Pattern/Pattern:Nestedness|nested]] whole'', each with its own unique ''[[Special:FormEdit/Pattern/Pattern:Essence|essence]]'' and ''[[Special:FormEdit/Pattern/Pattern:Potential|potential]]''. The notion of abundance also applies to how we work--that we don't do it alone: we work simultaneously on ourselves, with each other in ''fields,'' to resource each others ''[[Pattern:RDA 4. Lifelong, developmental learning|developmental learning]]'', and ''nodally'', allying with regenerative capacity of our natural ecosystems, in order to continually co-create a shared abundance in our places--one that oozes out from every being that participates there. ==Pattern generators== '''This aim could be generative of the following patterns in any Community of Place of any scale.''' *redefinition of wealth as the capacity to (re)generate true ''[[Special:FormEdit/Pattern/Pattern:Place-sourced|place-sourced]]'' value for all members, inclusive of the larger community of life [1.1a] *activation of the capacity of communities to develop the unique and fullest ''[[Special:FormEdit/Pattern/Pattern:Potential of place|potential of place]]'' [1.1c] *valuation of all work (of all species), especially the vital work of ''ecosocial'' regeneration [1.2a] *surpassing of basic food/material/energy needs of all members with a resolute focus on ''[[Special:FormEdit/Pattern/Pattern:Primary ecosocial production|primary ecosocial production]]'' in each place [1.1b] *valuing of livelihoods that grow capacity to exceed basic needs in a manner that regenerates productive capacity of (larger ecological context) terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems [1.2b] *ensuring that the value of a living wage is exchanged for all work [1.2c] *establishment of community safety nets for all people, especially the most vulnerable [1.3] *ensuring that all people have equal access to participate in and benefit from community life (''[[Special:FormEdit/Pattern/Pattern:Radical participation|radical participation]]'') [1.4] *implementation of alternative [[Special:FormEdit/Pattern/Pattern:Ways to exchange value|''ways to exchange value'']] as an approach to ''[[Special:FormEdit/Pattern/Pattern:Radical participation|radically-inclusive participation]]'' that infuses shared community values within our economic systems [1.4a] *establishment of shared community financial systems -- banking, insurance, lending, and investment -- that are responsive to the [[Pattern:RDA 3. Whole health and well-being|whole health and well-being]] and shared values of all people and ecosystems they serve [1.4b] *building capacity via [[Pattern:RDA 4. Lifelong, developmental learning|developmental learning]] of all, particularly of underprivileged and vulnerable populations, to contribute meaningfully to [[Special:FormEdit/Pattern/Pattern:Place-centric|''place-centric'']] [[Pattern:Regenerative development|regenerative development]] [1.5] *catalyzing [[Pattern:Regenerative development|regenerative development]] in [[Pattern:RDA 10.
