I believe many would read a paper, report, book on Sustainopreneurship to boost their own vision. This is why I encourage you to build up any publication or speech as much as your scientific sides allow you towards this end. I'm talking of the rhetorical/dramaturgical satisfaction of vision as a climax, but also about vision as a channel to put all my inspiration into, after reading some of your work.

Further more, personally, I would appreciate, if not a presentation, at least a glimps of how economy as a whole could function differently from today. I'm talking a brief guide with references to alternative economic systems, or visions of economic systems. Many feel stuck in today's economic system/-s and need a reminder of the personal and collective choices that are actually "out there".

Let's see if any (more) of this can fit in nicely somewhere and popularize the concept of Sustainopreneurship as well as vision in a broader sense.

(Don't get me wrong. I'm trying to say visions is your game, throwing it out there to see about concensus..;-)

Maybe the paradigm shift under way in the media could serve as an analogy or something, or am I just squeezing that in everywhere nowadays?!!


Michael Pokocky

Further to all the correspondence you an I have exchanged and looking into the work that you are doing I can say without a doubt that your project will "endure" readers and attract "attention."

Furthermore, I believe in what you're doing beyond the scope of critical analysis; I tend to look at the "emotional" impact on society of projects such as this and your project captures the true "spirit" of what everyone in the world knows but finds it difficult to articulate.

I commend you on your work and value your "integrity" and your "passion;" without this solid belief in what you are doing any project is doomed. The Emotional, Intellectual and Physical Exertion of such a far reaching vision demands nothing but excellence; a quote: "Demand excellence and you'll get very good; demand very good and your project will do poorly."

You my friend demand excellence from yourself; that much is clear to me. Therefore your project will turn out very good.

I chose the eBook on Energy as my first choice because I believe sustainable distributed energy will enable the emergence of peer to peer organisations which will ultimately unleash the power of a deep support economy.

I like the definition of peer to peer from Michel Bauwen, for me it beautifully encapsulates the charactersitics of 21st century organisations...

"Briefly put, peer to peer is a form of human network-based organization, more precisely a distributed network, which rests upon the free participation of equipotent partners, engaged in the production of common resources, without recourse to monetary compensation as key motivating factor, and not organized according to hierarchical methods of command and control."

I recommend this site for further information


I wish every success Anders in delivering the message of sustainability entrepreneurship.

Adite Chatterjee

Hi Anders. Your concept of sharing knowledge through e-books is wonderful. My question is: is it possible to make these available through offline media, since many of 'sustainopreneurs' would not have the resources to access them online? Your thoughts please.

Anders Abrahamsson

Dear Johan, Michael, Ros, Adite,

Thank you all for the comments and endorsements so far to ideas now proliferating.

As you know, I have set up a Google Group, and the conversation there is now commencing! You all got feedback on your comments and thoughts there. In that way, we keep the line and stream of comments free and clean, and when a pointer leads to a good discussion, the discussion forum for this blog post and sustainopreneurship in general develops over "there".


Thank you all for your feedback! And yes, you all qualified for the first eBook to be published for free :). You all will be mentioned in acknowledgements as well, of course.


Don The Idea Guy

Great concept Anders. I voted for ENERGY. It's always been my belief that the exchange of ideas is an exchange of energy -- sharing ideas with one another recharges our internal innovation energy reserves. Your vision for Sustainopreneurship sounds like one great big 'battery of brilliance!' I look forward to learning more about the project.


If I should have Anders write a book on one of the above topics, I'd want you to develops your thoughts and ideas on networking. I'm impressed with your methods of work in that field, I think you make unique contributions and that you are a forerunner in many respects in the way you think and work like a true networker.

Igor Gazdík

Sustainopreneurship itself is an innovative approach: whatever new we do we need a name for it. Without relevant generic terms you can hardly do any creative work. Sustainopreneurship, however, is a difficult word. It is essential that it not only be defined, but also explained thoroughly enough so as to rub in.
Why I think the book should deal with networking (i.e. the networking aspect of sustainopreneurship) is because a network of like-minded enthousiasts effortlessly creates the "critical mass" necessary for the survival of that concept... Let us hope that the network will then accomplish more than just safeguard the survival of the concept in point. ,,,igor,,,

Nicholas Paranelle

Looking forward to more from you. I see the future of sustainopreneurship in dialogue and discovery - around your topic areas - not the topics themselves... The opportunity to connect - cognitively, emotionlly - viscerally with another individual - or individuals is what creates sustainability...

Hi Anders,
My picks would be in the following order:
1. Branding
2. Finiancing
3. Networking
4. ICT

Hjalmar Nordén


I chose the book about networking, since I am aiming to work internationally and across borders with environmental issues. It would then be necessary for me to be able to establish contact with people and reach out to the smaller NGO's that would be interested in international cooperation, that might need a helping hand in spreading their visions.

Steve Habib Rose

Peace. I also chose the book on networking, but it is only because that is my main focus (I also do a lot with branding!) All these topics are important. You're doing some very interesting work, and looking forward to seeing how it moves forward.
