Join us in Iceland for a 5-day Seminar:
Designing Wisdom Economies
Using Multiple Types of Capital to Increase Impact
April 9th – April 13th, 2018
Over the last decade there has been an increasing awareness from many sectors of society that we need to re-imagine the notion of capital. It isn’t enough anymore to just measure impact or even have more impact. Rather you want to make sure you are having more of the right kinds of impact. The MetaCapital Framework will enable you to understand Impact in your own life as well as create thriving organizations, communities and societies by extending the notion of capital, impact and bottom lines and grounding the tools, metrics and platforms you need to create Wisdom Economies!
Designing Wisdom Economies
Join us for a 10-week online Master Class where we will explore current trends in the New Economy and how to design wisdom economies (i.e., whole-person/whole-system economies) using the MetaCapital Framework. This Framework provides an integrated model of the relationship between four types of impact, ten types of capital and their measurement, and a quadruple bottom line of People, Profit, Planet, and Purpose. One of the distinguishing features of this Framework is how it integrates all of these elements into a very intuitive and easily applied approach.
What will I learn?
This Master Class is for you if you want to …
Understand the concept of multiple forms of capital and metrics associated with each.
Treasure what you measure, so measure what you treasure.
Understand the critical relationships in between behaviors, systems, relationships and mindsets.
Understand the relationship in between Impact, quadruple bottom lines and types of capital.
Learn about how currencies can be applied to make visible, enable and shape value.
Identify what types of capital can be generated in your projects and life.
Learn to distinguish tangible and intangible value and how to make the intangible visible.
Learn how to achieve the four types of Impact: Clear, High, Deep and Wide.
Learn about multidimensional accounting and how it can leverage your organization.
Learn how the Metacapital framework can be used to activate Wisdom.
Who will I learn with?
In this Master Class you will be learning along side like-minded individuals who are keen to explore the interconnections between types of impact, forms of capital, and multiple bottom-lines. This include individuals such as:
Alternative Currency Advocates
Mixed Methods Researchers
Visionary Business Designers
New Economy Folks
Triple Bottom Line Aficionados
How Will I learn?
Learning is a unique journey. Our intention is to enable the spaces and resources for people to learn as much as they want. You can choose to just get familiar with the topics, or take a deep dive and implement the model for your own projects and goals. Your choice. Our learning environment includes:
Participate in 2 hours weekly interactive sessions where we will cover the ‘MetaCapital Framework’ and have fun playing live together.
Relate with the community and the facilitators through our online slack community space. Bring your projects and expect some magic!
Play with leading edge platforms to ground and apply the concepts.
Access and co-create our curation of resources (videos, papers, podcasts, case studies, quotes).
Participants will be sent a guide with all technical details and support.

We decided to host this training in Iceland for a number of reasons.
First, it is a totally gorgeous example of pristine natural beauty. You can gift us with the full amount in conventional money. That is a financial capital of $375 or you can gift us $195.
Second, it is a progressive culture exploring new models of economy and value accounting.
If you decide to gift us the $180 with another form of capital then we will start by trusting that we will find a service, a product or any other form of value through relationship. We have some ideas to spark creativity and I am sure we will find a place where we all feel great!
Evaluate: At the end of the Master Class we together evaluate. You rate yourself, each other, the facilitators, with a number of rating currencies we will provide, like expertise currency, easiness of participation, experience (from ‘poor’ to ‘outstanding’, with everything in between). All part of the feedback to see the Impact that was created a help us improve. Through our journey together there will be opportunities to explore our reciprocity.
Proposal: If option 2 is appealing to you please use the contact page to share why you are choosing this option and perhaps some first ideas on what forms of capital you would want to explore for our trade. Ideally your proposal will leverage some form of capital you already have. For example if you have a big social media presence you can leverage that, if you are an academic researcher you can leverage that. See below for some examples to inspire your thinking.
● Write 4 blogs during the course (social capital)
● Share X number of well crafted posts through your social media channels (social capital)
● Research, content creation, or curation on some of the capitals (knowledge capital)
● Give 10 hours of website development (knowledge capital)
● Offer a massage or spa certificate (health capital)
● Host a MetaCapital workshop for us (financial capital)
● Gift equipment (e.g., a LCD projector) (manufactured capital)
● Offer tickets to a cultural event (cultural capital)
● Transfer air miles (cultural capital)
● Train the facilitators in some domain of interest to them (human capital)
If you prefer full gift economy share your project with us, why you need this knowledge and what is the value you are creating. We have 2 available scholarships. So contact us and we can explore forms of reciprocity informed by the MetaCapital Framework.
