STIR stands Sustainocracy, Transformation, Indexation and Research. It also refers to agitation, provocation, mixing up, excitement. That is exactly what happens when society has to learn to deal with holistic processes within the context of “global issues, local solutions”.
The foundation was registered in 2009 in Eindhoven (The Netherlands) with the objective to redefine and implement society “worthy of passing on to our children”. Even though its meaning and practical execution as a verb refers to some kind of disturbance the reality of the foundation is very peaceful, purpose driven, empirical and science based as well as transformative.
STIR evolved gradually into a foundation that gathers empirical experience on the development of local holistic solutions to global problems. STIR establishes cooperative ventures that address such issues locally with the direct involvement of scientific research, government, business and local citizens.
