The Universal Trust was established in 2012 as an international network of networkers united by a common intent to support inventors, scientists and new paradigm developers of all types. We collaborate, co-operate and joint venture with partners to achieve these objectives and our intention and ethics guide our projects.
It is our intent to connect all of these elements together for the good of all using holistic systems – a system simply means that something is bigger than the sum of its parts and connected with everything else, including our environment. The process we use tends to help remove ego and personality issues – none of us is perfect, but we need ways to work together which bring out everyone's individual skills and innate knowledge.
Our key aim is to help bring in paradigm changing technologies in a non-disruptive manner for the good of all people and our planet, so we look at gaps in energy, organisation, systems and processes and provide the tools and expertise to help people to do this for themselves... creating a fractal that can work with nature (remaining balanced while able to adapt and innovate) and human nature.
The Universal Trust is run as a team, by the team and is wholly co-owned by its members who are connected to organisations like the New Energy Systems Trust (NEST), VillageLab and Ubuntu.
We support co-operative relationships with partner organisations and our first task is to assist in setting-up of effective, systemic organisational structures for them to achieve their aims. To do this we empower partners with the with the tools and skills to do their work effectively, connecting them directly with technologies for their own food, water, waste, energy, health and housing requirements.
Our key strategic aims are to appraise and support:
Technologies – prioritizing strategically important paradigm change projects and quick wins.
People – assessing the intentions and abilities of the technology providers to fulfil their needs.
Some want to stay in their workshops developing technologies, they need infrastructure to enable their technologies to connect with the people who need them. Others want to run their organisations, in which case they will need the right people, structures, processes, skills and resources to fulfil their intentions.
Projects – including project model development, supporting existing projects, creating communities and connecting them with paradigm changing technologies, organisational tools, etc.
