Moovers - a manifesto of the first global generations

The 21st century will be marked by a transition from mostly fixed societies (in a single country) to a more mobile and transnational lifestyle. Finally, we will overcome the national paradigm and reach the global paradigm of social organization.

The ongoing transition is impacted by three main factors:

a) Dematerialization: the accumulation of goods has made our baggage heavier over the past centuries. With the cloudification of our lives, the response to our needs are less and less attached to our goods, and so: we are lighter to move around;

b) Delocalisation: sapiens are increasingly less conditioned to the location that surrounds them; relationships, work, leisure, culture increasingly take place in virtual environments;

c) WORLDalisation: the process of making the homo sapiens more collectively aware of its uniqueness on planet Earth. From the oceans, the great navigations opened up new possibilities for people to connect/interact on an intercontinental and worldwide scale. This time was the beginning of this process, which got faster with the beginning of www, allowing a free interaction among our species (simultaneous–instantaneous–connective).

With the commercial internet framework, part of generation Y and generation Z are the future generations that built their identity less conditioned to national symbols, being impacted by a free, global and interconnected interaction in the virtual world.

This is how the moovers were born, the first generations that challenged limiting national structures, reconnected with the migratory essence and understood movement in the world as an act of freedom for the human species.
