TETRAD Institute and its close partners

Partners, Friends, Projects supported, recommended, endorsed by TETRAD Institute of Complex System Dynamics and its partners including Intelligence Renaissance Industries

These are people, networks and organizations (both formal and informal) focused principally upon doing positrive, rational, constructive things for People and for our society as one human race living on Earth with many other races and species of living beings. Some of their work and accomplishments is absolutely remarkable, in our view, and particularly in terms of the social dimensions and the long-term future implications.

This is not a list of "STEM" research centers and researchers, although there are scientists, engineers, and other "STEM" folk involved in these entities. (For that you can explore our other sites connected with the TETRAD Institute and find other partners and remarkable places we think you should know about).

Follow the links here and learn what these people and organizations are doing. Some things are upcoming events such as conferences, seminars and workshops. There are activities and opportunities that may interest you and help you, and without direct connection to our organizations and works. Just please remember that you learned about things through us, so let them know, too, and as you review our work, and that of people such as those here, think a lot about

Commons Transition
{from their website}
Working towards transition to a world where communities equitably, fairly and collectively manage our own resources – co-creating caring economies that work for all. The Commons is a system based on the practices and needs of civil society and the environment it inhabits at the local, regional, national and global levels. Its projects emphasize:
  • Free: open, shareable, and with equitable access;
  • Fair: just distribution for participating commoners and in social solidarity with all humankind;
  • Alive and engaged with nature: acknowledging our integral role as responsible stewards and restorers

P2P Foundation
{from their website}
P2P is an abbreviation of “peer to peer”, sometimes also described as “person to person” or “people to people”. The essence of P2P is this direct relationship, and its core characteristics include:
  • Creation of common goods through open, participatory production and governance processes
  • Universal access guaranteed through licenses such as Creative Commons, GPL, Peer Production Licence.
P2P is a process or dynamic that can be found in many communities and movements self-organising around the co-creation of culture and knowledge. Well known general examples include the free/open source software movement; free culture; open hardware; and open access in education and science.
