A ship that sets sail for the unknown has always been driven by the belief that what one does succeed and a strong hope that new opportunities will be discovered during the voyage. Ship of a New Story is driven by faith and hope for a positive future with many opportunities where the inner and outer journey is equally important. The destinations we seek with the journey are best for the world – new islands and entire continents. To help us find what we are looking for, we use several sustainability lenses in our binoculars to get the best sharpness and focus so that we navigate correctly. On a ship, all the knowledge and skills must be in place for a trip to be successful. Everyone who designs on Ship of a New Story wants to explore the shift from striving to be the best in the world to be the best for the world. A new worldview is as challenging as moving from a flat earth belief to a circular earth perception.
Ship of a New Story is carried out during a three-year period on a ship during the Almedalen week in Visby and is based on three parts: Part 1 is about enabling the platform of Ship of a New Story for those who are not currently represented in Almedalen to participate – a representative average of Sweden’s population. Part 2 is up to five arenas highlighted on the platform with various programs, panel discussions, dialogues workshops, activities and exhibitors. Part 3 is the story itself, ie a New Story, which means that the ship is not only a metaphor for the shift from best-in-world to best-in-world, but it really is the shift itself.

Fide means to trust in English. Trust is the foundation we need for intentionally co-creating the new paradigm. But what is the new paradigm actually? How can we talk about it? Where does it come from? Why is it needed in these times? How can I co-create it? These are the questions we are going to address in focused dialogues around the following topics:
The tree as a metaphor for life’s complexity
The Intentional Decision (ID) model as a tool for raising choices
The 4 loops that inform our consciousness to make ethical choices
The historic evolution of the mechanistic worldview
How to make the transition to the new paradigm Intentional Decisions for a Sustainable Future.
An Exploration Journey of the Intentional Decision Model and the shift from becoming best in the world to be best for the World.
Changes may be initiated by external impulses, but if they are to sustain, they need to come from, or be anchored, within, being it in the individual, organisation or society. Is “within” the same as intelectual understanding? Then why do we stick to habits that contradict the intellect? How do emotions drive motivation for change and how can we create the desired emotional state?

The Power of Connection – A structure for enhancing the quality of life and work The Power of Connection methodology provides a clear and integrated model to research and enhance the quality of life and work.

Whether it’s health, joy, a meaningful life or sustainable relationships on a personal level, or result, collaboration, leadership, and sustainability in organizations, The Power of Connection helps to determine which connections are strong, hence, they don’t need to be worked on, and which connections are weak and cause friction or problems.
