The goal of BEST Futures is to support the emergence of a sustainable global system through providing people and communities with new systems tools, perspectives and knowledge.
BEST Futures began in 2003 as a research project designed to develop, apply and disseminate our Biosocial Evolutionary Systems Theory model (the BEST Model ) of societal change and evolution. The project builds on the work of Dr. Alastair M. Taylor (1915-2005), who was the first to use systems theory to explain the historical evolution of societal systems and world-views. We intend to involve other people in the project as the work expands.
We use the BEST Model to:
(1) Explain the historical evolution of societal systems and worldviews
(2) Explain the natural and societal processes shaping current and future events
(3) Develop systems tools and teach systems thinking
(4) Support the emergence of an integral world view and vision
