About Jean-Paul Close
Jean-Paul Close is the ideological father of Sustainocracy and founder of practical sustainocratic initiatives such as the STIR Foundation, AiREAS, FRE2SH and the STIR learning cooperation. He has university degrees in mathematics, computer science and international business studies. After decades of top level executive positions in multinationals with worldwide responsibilities he became aware of the destructive forces active in our fragmented economised societal structures and felt the drive and need to redefine sustainable human progress. Sustainocracy is now accredited and seen as a modern evolutionary step in regional development, with supporters and fractal start up initiatives across the world.
