Volution Institute supports this mission, with its efforts coordinated through the maintenance and application of frameworks that integrate the various components of change/trans and potential responses.
Volution Institute seeks opportunities for developing collaborative relations with other centers, as well as with individuals dedicated to the advancement of convergent change and allied initiatives. Volution Institute also helps communities discover their existing communication and knowledge networks,

New paradigm? Yes.Massive! Facing a Millennium of Change: Global turbulences, changing topologies. WE ARE IN LEVEL CRISIS! With changing notion of media and information, fundamental fresh grounds of structural complexification, multidimensionality, nonlinear dynamics and dematerialization, we need to rearrange concepts of entity, direction & relational capabilities. For 21st century challenges and global needs, the focus has to go to softinance, de-growth, dynamic forms of organization within constant flux of change tangled state, new emergent forms, fundamental fresh basics for transfer and exchange, flexible level / bottom-up architectures, allowing open-ended parameters, macro- & micro- politics of the multiple, ontology of borderlessness, augmented system of amongst, refinements of basal spheres, alternative forms of merge, new emergent forms of addition, combination and relation: effective links to other units: process integrative open. Giving up binary thinking. Becoming - multidimensional. To rethink post-representative changing strategies: to bring together where it meets: unifying larger scales - advancing a "big picture" of involved spheres.
