is a National Coordinator?
Earth and all the activities that are
going on in this world are very fragmented and disconnected with a complete lack
of global coordination and synchronisation of initiatives. There is therefore a
need to collect the bits and pieces and see how these can be articulated and
integrated together for maximum added value bearing in mind that the top
priority of the Third Millennium is achieving and sustaining World Society Well
Being and Quality of Life.
NewPOL Network is a World Network with an active component, the National
Coordinators (NCs) and a passive component, the General Pool.
National Coordinators (NCs)
A National Coordinator (NC) is a Leader or Member of a National
Representation. To avoid worldwide confusion regarding countless National
Representations in different areas, the National Representation (or Team) shall
be referred to as a National NewPOL Team (=
National Coordinating Team). For example the Italian Representation in the
IMNRC-NewPOL Network shall be called the Italian NewPOL Team. In
addition to their specific tasks in their respective Teams (like the NSWBQoL
Team), National Coordinators help
to coordinate the NewPOL Network's activities with the interests of their
country's population and governance.
What is a National
NewPOL (National Coordinating) "Team"?
"Team" in any country is made up of members who represent the concerns,
hopes and interests of the citizens of their country. They come from all
ages, backgrounds and socioeconomic statuses, but they have one skill in
common - interdisciplinary potential - to which may be added any additional
specific skill. The
"Team" is therefore something like a general task force on
permanent standby with some members choosing to take part in
one or more of the IMNRC-NewPOL Network's activities: the New Capacity
Building Programme (NCBP) which is none other than the WSWBQoLP, the
IMIRC, Interface Events, Pilot Schemes, CWINS, answering calls provided that
these respond to our needs, ...
In other words, the "Team" for country X shall consist of many
different sub-teams each with its own preference.
The IMNRC-NewPOL Network administrative and residential Headquarters is a
solid physical structure legally represented in Belgium. The National Teams
throughout the world on the other hand even though they are represented by
real human beings have yet to create a National Office. This shall greatly
facilitate local interaction with the local citizens.
projects are necessarily components of the NCBP (WSWBQoLP), which is itself a component of
the Interface Project.
NSWBQoL (NCBP) Team.
NSWBQoL Team (and none other) is part of the National Representation and shall be
in charge of two tasks in series:
A. creating a
National Society Well Being and Quality of Life Profile (NSWBQoL Profile)
B. creating a National Interface Ministry (NIM)
National Society Well Being and Quality of Life Profile (NSWBQoL Profile).
The NSWBQoL Team must first complete the WSWBQoL Pre-Summit Preparations.
This means completing what is called the Five stages:
Recruiting. Selecting citizens to join the existing NSWBQoL Team is the NCBP's
Principle Coordinator's responsibility initially. This responsibility is
then shared with the NSWBQoL
Team Leader who progressively takes over for his/her own country. Selection
is a two part process. The 1rst part is
to create a team that shall be able to complete the other four Stages (see
below) and must therefore give evidence of high integrated interdisciplinary
potential. The 2nd part is to add any extra citizens who can help with the
task of creating a NIM. Practically, this means that the initial core team
may consist of a medical doctor, a musician, a judge, a student, a plumber,
a child/adolescent, a banker, a baker, an artist, a miner, person with no
job, a housewife, a politician, a philosopher, taxi driver, ... i.e. anybody
living in that particular country.
National Definition of WBQoL. The Team shall have to suggest a definition of
WBQoL that bests represents WBQoL for its own national citizens. This means
listening to the citizens in every village/town/city. This
National definition shall be presented for the Pre-Summit Meeting on WSWBQoL.
National Standard Methodology for NSWBQoL Profile Assessment. The Team shall
have to find a National Standard Methodology for Village/City/Town SWBQoL
Profile Assessment. This National Standard Methodology for NSWBQoL Profile
Assessment shall be presented for the Pre-Summit Meeting on WSWBQoL.
Action Plan. The Team shall be asked to suggest a draft Action Plan to
achieve and sustain their country's Society WBQoL. This draft shall be
published on the Team's National Representation website. After the WSWBQoL
Summit when the NGG shall have been set up, the Team shall help out to
create a National Interface Ministry. (See below)
Website. Creation of a website that explains the NCBP (WSWBQoLP) in the
Team's own National language.
During the WSWBQoL Pre-Summit Meeting, the 260 NSWBQoL Teams present their
respective WBQoL Definitions and NSWBQoL Profile Assessment Standard
Methodologies. We shall see how these can be articulated together exploring
the Missing Links and the Common Denominator. The Pre Summit deliverable
shall be a World Definition of WBQoL and a World Standard Methodology for
NSWBQoL Profile Assessment.
Following the WSWBQoL Pre-Summit Meeting, NSWBQoL Profile Assessments shall
be launched worldwide. This shall mean creating Village/Town/City
Society Well Being and Quality of Life Profile Assessments for each country.
The creation of a Village/Town/City Society Well Being and Quality of Life
Profile forms the foundation of Pilot Scheme 1: "Achieving and
sustaining Village/Town/City Society Well Being and Quality of Life with
Smart Villages/Towns/Cities". In other words, there are as many PS-1s
as there are Villages/Towns/Cities in one country. The sum of the PS-1s is
the National Society Well Being and Quality of Life Project that can only be
appropriately managed through a National Interface Ministry (NIM) (please
During the WSWBQoL Summit, each country shall present its own NSWBQoL
Profile. We shall explore how these can be articulated together, what are
the missing links, what is the Common Denominator. The WSWBQoL Summit
deliverable shall be a New Global Governance Platform where the
international referential is the Third Millennium's top priority, Word
Society Well Being and Quality of Life.
the WSWBQoL Summit, we must achieve and sustain World Society Well Being and
Quality of Life. Integrated interdisciplinary challenges can only be
appropriately managed through integrated interdisciplinary governance.
WSWBQoL is the most complex integrated interdisciplinary challenge that has
ever face humanity and that can only be appropriately managed through New
Global Governance or Coordinated Holistic Interactive Bottom-Up Top-Down
Integrated Interdisciplinary Governance.
To begin with, this means creating a National Interface Ministry (NIM).

1. Survey and Collection of ALL National Bubbles: Thematics, Sub-Thematics,
Topics, Sub-Topics, ... In other words, bioeconomy, health, climate change,
energy, society, food, law, constitution, ...
2. What are the Missing Links and what is the Common Denominator?
Interconnecting, Explicit/implicit/Embedded overlapping, ...
3. Customised World Interdisciplinary Networks (CWINs) & Criss-Cross
Integration. Integrating all the bubbles together.
For example, the CWIN for Alzheimer's Disease can be called CWIN 8. Each
country feeds in and retrieves new data from CWIN 8 that is shared by
everybody interested in Alzheimer's Disease: everything is centralised for
ease of access to information. Centralised doesn't mean "closed".
The CWIN 8 structure is highly articulate and interactive, being open to
EVERYBODY (and not just to the medical community exclusively) for any reason
related to the issue: new treatment idea proposal, need for clarification,
questions, interaction, participation, ... The open access information on
CWIN 8 invites interdisciplinary multicultural brainstorming, is regularly
monitored, updated and clarified for ease of use to favour maximum impact on
Alzheimer's Disease (treatment, research). We therefore have a World
Alzheimer Platform that is accessible wherever needed.
Now comes the more complex part. Take air pollution. Let's name the CWIN for
Air Pollution CWIN 11. The process is initially the same: everybody
worldwide feeds in data to CWIN 11. You need information on Air Pollution?
Connect to CWIN 11 that is continuously fed with sensor, satellite, ICT, ...
information. The same can be done for water pollution... or transport... or
food... or whatever.
CWIN must be so structured that each can be easily interconnected and
integrated with other CWINs, whatever the CWIN. By asking what are the
Missing Links and what is the Common Denominator between the different CWINs
in any one country, this facilitates the integration process and the
understanding of how Alzheimers' Disease <---> Air Pollution
<---> Water Pollution <---> Food <---> are related in that
country opening new interesting avenues for research and new
4. Integration of all the National Ministries into one National Ministry:
the National Interface Ministry (NIM = National Society Well Being and
Quality of Life Ministry). National Constitution and Law shall have to be
adapted, not to say rethought.
5. Creation of a NIM Network. International Law shall have to be
6. New Global Governance (NGG).
What does "NewPOL" mean?
NewPOL stands for New POLicy or New POLitics or New Physics
Of Life or New POlymerase reaction...

Team Members are selected either by the National NewPOL Team Leader or by the
General Principal Coordinator himself. Each National NewPOL Team Member chooses which of the NewPOL Network's
activities he/she is interested in. These are: the New Capacity Building

(Customised World Interdisciplinary Networks), Pilot Schemes, IMIRC (International
Multidisciplinary Interface Research Congress), EU FP and Non-FP Calls for
Proposals, Non-EU Calls for Proposals, Private Projects.

4. The National NewPOL Team. General Considerations.
The NC Team shall - ideally - be extended
to include everyone in a given country. The objective is to make everyone
actively concerned with their own country's well-being and quality of life.
He/she is part of his/her country that is in turn part of the World. It is
therefore vital to get through to ALL and create a strong interactive link by
addressing ALL backgrounds and not just the academic elite.
In each and every
human being - whatever his/her nationality or culture - there is a potential
Leonardo da Vinci. One of the NC Teams' main jobs is to awaken this latent
potential in their own country's population.

5. Admission Procedure for
Principal National Coordinators (National NewPOL Team Leaders):
All applications for
the post of Principal National Coordinator must be sent to the Principal
Selection of National NewPOL Team Leaders is based on their NewPOL
Profile, outstanding integrated interdisciplinary and leadership potential.
What is a NewPOL
A NewPOL Profile
differs from a classic/conventional CV or resume. The presentation is less
"academic" and more accessible to the general public... for
example by adding some more personal notes: hobbies, interests in life,
family, ... A small photo is required for the NC Team Leader. [I shall be
asking for three different photos from everyone later in fact: professional,
family and during your vacation for example]. The selected NC Team Leader is
after all a human being. Not just a HPC... :-)
Many of the people in
a given country may not have the impressive academic background of the
Principal National Coordinators and some - with little or no qualifications
(or even no job) but with something interesting to say - may feel uneasy (or
intimidated) if the profile is too "austere".
So, the FIRST thing is
to make people feel at ease and completely free to get in touch with you.
You don't want the people saying: "My Goodness! There is such a
difference between him/her and me...I'll be ridiculous... with
"just" my "little" idea. Forget it..."
If the people
hesitate...you - and we - shall lose them.
Perhaps those who have
not been "educated" in a mould shall prove more
creative.....??..... :-)) This is why open public participation is so
6. Admission Procedure for
National NewPOL Team Members:
At the Principal
National Coordinator's discretion.
NC Team Members send their Standard Profile if they prefer to the
Principal National Coordinator of their country or the Principal
General Coordinator. A Standard Profile should include professional details, address
and Area of Interest. A LinkedIn Profile is acceptable provided that the
requested details are included. If the post of Principal National Coordinator is
vacant, the application must be sent to the Principal
7. Admission Procedure for
