We don’t want to tell people how to think and behave, but we hope that everybody who wants to become part of NION is eager to share our principles. They are based on our experiences and reflect our ethics.
Our community innately has all resources and power in need to manage selves. We are capable of finding our roles and accountabilities, exerting personal leadership, distributing responsibilities, and autonomously self-organize. We encourage our community to participate in, question, and even challenge, the co-creation process of NION with positive intention.
People are all learners and teachers with one another, regardless of their generations, acquired expertise and experiences.
We are eager to be “master learners” who augment collective intelligence to make a collective impact on our societies.
Our community of practice is ready to expose ourselves to failure. Failure is a source of learning and NION is a safe space for trial and error.
Every problem is an invitation to be playful and creative.
3 Beyond Boundaries
Any living being may become a player of NION. Our community strives to go beyond boundaries –visible and invisible, actual and figurative, external and internal–. We expect our community to put on hold with their preconception and conditioning, but seek for an open dialog and collaboration. Our decisions and conducts continuously revise the status quo in the existing society as well as within us for better today.
4 Perpetual Care
We lead our everyday life in and with our environments. We are responsible for taking them into account at our activities from a holistic view. We maintain, improve, restore, sustain, and let the environments be alive. Likewise, we take care of ourselves physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually as a holistic person.
Our community participates with their will and spontaneity. It contributes through their strengths and even vulnerability. Different values, appearances, backgrounds, and ways of expressions are all worthy and integral part of NION.
