The search for alternatives: Key aspects and principles

Can we collectively search for frameworks and visions that pose fundamental alternatives to today’s dominant economic and political system? How can such frameworks and visions build on an existing heritage of ideas and worldviews and cultures, and on past or new grassroots practice? This note, evolving through the VikalpSangam process[2], attempts to lay out some thoughts towards such a process, and is offered as one means to stimulate dialogue and visioning.
