After years of preparation, the Univetica social initiative is set to launch on November 11th, prompting a new conversation about progress, purpose, and a path to a thriving global community. With its new web environment, Univetica intends to provide the framework and resources for people and organizations everywhere to engage in constructive dialogue that can help usher in a new era of hope and growth. The initiative is built on the core principles of the groundbreaking new book, "Univetica: Compelling Change." Seeking to help more people make better decisions more often, Univetica takes a unified approach to 21st-century life, business, and education, providing its members the resources they need to forge a better future for themselves and the globe.
The Univetica social venture was founded on the belief that social, economic, and environmental responsibility should not be treated as mere talking points. Univetica places positive social change not just as a high priority but as a central, guiding doctrine. Through innovation, pioneering ideas, and sound scientific and social principles, Univetica aims to create real change one person at a time.
Social innovator, author, and strategist, Mehdi Ghafourifar, founded Univetica in response to “a growing need to think strategically about our current challenges and those that lay ahead. More than ever, we need universal guiding principles and processes to thrive in the 21st century.” Univetica represents a profound shift away from the divisive ideologies that have so far dominated human interaction and toward more global approaches. Recognizing the real, potentially catastrophic challenges humanity now faces, Univetica emphasizes science, concrete data, logic, and creativity, aspiring to create tangible change.
Univetica has also created an educational program comprising several books, including one for middle-school-aged children, one for high schoolers, and one for college students. These books apply Univetica’s core principles to education, encouraging students to expand their boundaries, question everything, and progress toward a mindset that embraces community on the global and local levels.
As the official Univetica community web site undergoes final preparations, the founders of Univetica have made it possible for advocates of global progress to get involved immediately. The full site doesn’t go live until 11/11, but visitors can sign up now in advance of the public release.
Upon Univetica’s launch, membership will have immediate benefits, including “the chance to have your voice heard and exchange ideas with others in your community and across the world, access to experts working on solutions to local and global problems, new opportunities for innovation, and significant opportunities for publicity, among many other things,” explains Ghafourifar.
Participants will also enjoy enhanced profile functionality through the social branch of the Univetica site, which will take advantage of our new era of interconnectedness by giving Univetica members opportunities to collaborate with other proponents of progress throughout the world.
