Arcologies of Well-Being
A Proposal for Global Well-Being
by Teré Foster
download the proposal
We plan to build the most advanced human habitat in the world with a decentralized co-op economy, sustainable, self-contained food and utilities, a social structure that will promote greater well-being for those who live there, and a built-in system for duplicating this model in the poorest places in the world.
"We believe that all people should have the privilege of designing their own community in pursuit of their own well-being, rather than being forced to live in communities designed by others. Only then are we empowered as individuals to lay the foundation for a lifestyle that will address the larger issues of world hunger, pollution, corruption, war and every other practice that prevents global well-being."
--Teré Foster, founder of GlobalWell-Being.org.

- Improve the environment by eliminating commutes.
- Live and work in the same neighborhood.
- Cultivate community belonging.
- Duplicate these benefits around the world.
"Arcology" is a self-contained, self-sustaining human habitat taken from two words "architecture" and "ecology."
"Well-Being" is a state of being that includes finances, health, life purpose, spirituality, connection, sustainability, and human evolution.
"Arcologies of well-being" are places where people live and work together for the common good to help each other thrive in today's competitive economy.
Wanted: Leaders, thinkers, artists, innovators, inventors, entrepreneurs, and investors who can dream without limitations, to create for themselves and their loved ones a life, a future and a hope that is far beyond what is offered by the world so far, by gathering together unity to design and build a human habitat that includes a gift economy and a new social structure for those who live there.
