September 2018-December 2021, HaaSii.Club events are inspiring a world wide wave of co-creative thinking about the global Sustainable Development Goals for 2030.
Approaching the end of a crazy decade, the story of who we are as humanity is being hijacked by ever more digitalized and story-controlled systems. The HaaSii Wave is a collective global effort to reclaim control over who we know are as human beings: who we can choose to be, and what we can choose to do together at this turbulent time on our planet. The Global Goals are a tool we’re using along the Wave to discover where our Club members (and friends) passions align, and what we can do – individually and together – in pursuit of those goals that mean the most to us.
To that end, we’re inviting cross-cultural discovery and small-group dialogue about the Global Goals into family homes, workplaces, leisure spaces and even remote villages – everywhere that our growing global club can collectively reach through the end of 2021.
HaaSii’s uniquely fun and intimate approach to nurturing meaningful moments of co-creative learning and human connection across differences has been prototyped and refined with small groups in 7 countries on 4 continents since 2016. This audacious plan, and the world of connected people that are making it happen, has been more than 20 years in the making.
Co-creating a new kind of global story
A HaaSii Wave event experience is locally global, globally local, person to person. individual and together. Our quest along the wave is to co-create, capture and share the special magic that becomes possible when we humans carve out time to connect across our cultures and align our minds, hearts and learning intentions with common goals.
We nurture this magic by keeping things real. Differences in each Wave event group become the bridge that connects us in considering and exploring one or more of the UN global goals. Participants catch glimpses of different perspectives on these goals through the lens of their own and each other’s knowledge and personal experiences. New kinds of ideas for action and shared ways of thinking about our planet’s current realities come to light. New understanding forms around who we can choose to be as human beings, and what we can each choose to do moving forward – individually and together.
Participants are prompted to use their own social media channels to share about something they learned or experienced at the event. The collective compilation of these personally voiced learnings and reactions to co-creative moments around the world becomes, in itself, tells the new kind of co-created human story about the Global Goals that wants to be voiced.
Once “initiated” by experiencing a first HaaSii event, participants are invited to join the HaaSii.Club’s unique international network of cross-cultural co-creation experiences and opportunities. With 17 goals to explore, and 3,000+ events planned before the end of 2021, individual participation in multiple events and event formats is highly encouraged. Registered members have access to a monthly updated invitation to the schedule of Wave events through 2021 that will be hosted in peoples’ homes, nature spaces and remote villages around the world.

For registered Club members and friends worldwide, and by local host invitation.
15-20 friends and strangers from diverse backgrounds gather at a private home or community space.
We introduce ourselves in unusual ways, we connect through interesting games, and we randomly select one or more of the UN Sustainable Development goals to focus our exploration on each other’s knowledge and perspectives.

A HaaSii@Home event lasts 2.5-3 hours and can accommodate combinations of multiple languages when needed. Every event is different, due to the random topic selection, the different hosts’ homes, and the unique combination of magical beings who co-create each experience together. HaaSii@Home events are free, supported by optional participant donations and the re-sale of handmade HaaSii Village products used at the event
HaaSii@Home participants are prompted to use their own social media channels to share about something they learned or experienced at the event. The collective compilation of these personally voiced learnings and reactions to co-creative moments around the world becomes the new kind of co-created human story about the Global Goals that wants to be voiced.
Organizations are inviting their employees and other stakeholders to think and learn from each other co-creatively through the lens of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. and strengthening multi-cultural workplace relationships along the Wave.
Year long HaaSii@Work programs make diversity training time more meaningful, inviting regular moments of co-creative learning into the workplace and connecting the relevance of the global goals in workers’ own lives and actions.
Co-Creation Camp Weekends
Discounts available to registered Club members. Club members receive further discounts for inviting their friends.
A HaaSii.Club Co-creation Camp Weekend is an opportunity for you to get away in nature and connect with a diverse international group of 20-30 people, who are – or want to become – part of making good things happen in our world.
Through the exploratory lens of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, we’ll get to know each other. We’ll discover our own and each others’ energy, wisdom, ideas and initiatives around helping to achieve one or more of the goals in our own ways. Joint mini-action plans will be formed. Personal action statements will be developed. We’ll each come away with new friends, new travel connections, new inspiration and new insights into our own passions, purpose, projects and possibilities at this time on our rapidly changing planet.
HaaSii Village Adventures
For HaaSii.Club registered members and locally invited participants.
HaaSii Village Adventures are a 21st century model for giving value to old cultural knowledge in under-connected parts of the world.
In 2019, we’re targeting 2 initial villages with a pilot series of 12 monthly 2 day adventures designed to offer an authentic cultural learning experience for visitors, and leave villagers nurtured by the experience (for a change).
Day 1 includes workshops about local culture offered by local village families. Day 2 is an interactive multi-lingual conversation about one or more of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Respectful and mutually enriching learning happens, without anyone trying to help or change anyone or anything.
Through regular repeated events to the same HaaSii Villages over time, families are motivated to remember, learn and continue teaching their old cultural knowledge. They earn some cash for offering homestays and workshops, and are also engaging in regular conversations about the world and how the UN Sustainable Development Goals relate to their lives and communities.
HaaSii Wave Animator Certifications
HaaSii event animators are certified to lead our unusual Wave event formats through a combination of coursework and practice with others. Certification enables animators to organize and lead HaaSii Wave event formats about the Global Goals for Sustainable Development with any group, in any part of the world.
Animators who have completed any of the 4 HaaSii event format certifications by the end of 2021 are qualified to become co-owners of HaaSii.Club 2.1, when it transitions to co-operatively owned and co-creatively governed international ownership structure in 2022. Every event completed after certification through the end of 2021 translates to additional owned shares. Animators who complete all 4 certifications before the end of 2021 will see their number of HaaSii.Club 2.1 shares multiply by 4.
Online and offline certification course options are available. Practice requirements may entail travel costs. HaaSii.Club does not pay for trainee travel costs but can offer significant reductions on training fees in exchange for work on Club tasks and challenges. We can also happily promote and provide sample texts and logistical support for member crowdfunding campaigns for HaaSii training and practice-related expenses.
