Abstract – Download the paper here
The paper presents the conceptual framework of Integral Worlds approach, its application in the economic field, and the model of Integral Green Slovenia as a case of Integral Green Economy for Sustainable Development in the context of EU policies. The starting point is the recognition that global challenges are taking place in the here and now, and in the future we can expect even more of them, most likely with further increases in intensity, speed and complexity. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted in September 2015, is the response of global community to these challenges. While this UN document provides a comprehensive catalogue on the major development issues, a new, integrative conceptual framework and process to bring forth practical solutions in implementation of the 2030 Agenda, and offering alternative(s) to the mainstream non-sustainable economic paradigm, is needed.

The Integral Worlds approach represents such a conceptual framework and process, and is geared to holistically and transformatively address the burning issues of our time. It emphasizes dynamic balance among four mutually reinforcing dimensions and the centre – the moral core, and incorporates an inbuilt transformational rhythm, called the GENE (an acronym for Grounding, Emerging, Navigating, Effecting). Integral Economics, based on the Integral Worlds approach, is building on and connecting alternative economic theories and models (e.g. Mondragon in Spain, Grameen in Bangladesh, SEKEM in Egypt, Sarvodaya in Sri Lanka, Interface in USA, …) that are already successfully implemented today.

Good practices of Integral Green Economy and Society exist and are emerging also in Slovenia. This country has valuable experiences and knowledge with regards to integral conceptual framework and is the first nation to integrate them into a comprehensive national model with practice cases that is presented in the Routledge and Gower book Integral Green Slovenia. As an innovative and holistic societal and economic agenda for sustainable development, including also the concept of smart integration of EU policies for SD, Integral Green Slovenia represents in itself a social innovation and can serve as a pilot case to the European community on its path towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. It may even inspire a movement for an Integral Green Europe as part of a new European Renaissance.
