Abstract for: Self-organizing as Source of the Civil Society’s Transformational Dynamism in context of emerging Anthropocene

The paper analyses transformational dynamics of self-organizing communities as sample cases of civil society organizations serving as drivers of sustainable value creation in an emergent regenerative (alternate) economy. The explored causal loop and stock and flow diagrams can facilitate to clarify variables, related data characteristics and potential sources as well as their interplay. A recursive analytic logic enables to use initial phases of model building to facilitate fine-tuning the analytic tasks and tools. It can help to quantify and measure variables, as well as relevant data and their sources. The effects of time distribution should be considered and the relevance of metamodeling checked in order to analyze social changes interplaying with the civil society organizations’ dynamics characteristic that generate their transformational capacities.
