The Origin of Lifel: an initiative to find solutions through Multisystem collaboration

Lifel – a global non-profit initiative – is a platform for collaborative research, solutions development, and funding to explore new ideas. We aim to provide researchers with an environment that encourages them to take risks and develop daring new theories.

The initiative was born in 2008 to help us gain new insights into the organisation of living systems across fields. Insights that could – quite possibly – lead to multilevel sustainability between ecological, social and economic systems. So far, our research has yielded some interesting findings: we have discovered two recurring patterns across levels, both have the potential to inspire ways to achieve true sustainability.
