Discovery Street Corner Stones

To better understand how Discovery Street thinks and reshapes new ways of working, it might be useful to share the corner stones and values that drive us.


Humanity is advancing towards a new, global stage. In terms of social evolution we have moved from the early units of family life, tribalism and city-states into independent and sovereign nations. Human race is advancing towards its maturity. If feels that world unity is finally possible. We are one human family, and we are interdependently connected with each other and equal as human beings. I am because we are. Distinguishing it from uniformity, unity contains the concept of diversity. It is through love for all people that the unity of the world can now be realised and at the same time it is giving room for expressions of human diversity.

Discovery Street celebrates this positive evolution and acknowledges that we are all in a same journey. It is the duty of businesses to contribute towards the development of whole world and not just for the benefit of some or for a privileged few. Discovery Street defines success as progress of the world of humanity, and its solutions and services are all for this goal.


How can we sustain human life on earth? The advancement of civilisation requires active contribution which builds on generations of work and continuous progress in the saga of the human life on earth. It requires that no one is a mere passenger but every person is an active participant in creating a world a better place. We are caretakers of the nature, creators of art and music, engineers of technology. We need to leave the world better to our children than it was when we found it.

Performing work and our duties are not obstacles on the way to a good and happy life. Work performed in right spirit is a form of service and it itself brings meaning to life.

At Discovery Street we are learning how to create spaces where human qualities are manifest, skills and attitudes learned, new technologies created, new ways of doing business tried. Life-long learning is one of our core principles and we are committed to learn ourselves, every day, to fulfil our two-fold moral purpose: taking charge of our own spiritual and intellectual development and contributing to the transformation of society.

This is part of the Discovery Street’s series post, where we open our mindset and values that determines our daily life & procedures.


We value conversations. Long, meaningful, soul-to-soul conversations. Close connections open up possibilities for open discussion and mutual respect. We have no longer the need to divide people into ‘us’ and ‘them’ and can get rid of those prejudices which we have inherited from previous generations.

The value of conversations is the possibility to arrive to shared understanding between people from diverse backgrounds and life experiences. We can summon our common will and work towards common goals, using those precious individual capabilities and potentials we all have in us. Friendship is an important building block: a peace must be first established among individuals before it can lead to peace among nations.

At Discovery Street we are learning how we should behave towards one and another. There is surely a great transformative power in those simple grass root actions by a growing number of people who are working together with a same set of human values. It is in the end of the day a contribution to world peace.

Materialism has spread to every corner of our planet and promoting a culture of consumerism in the name of a strong global economy and human welfare. It promotes a habit of consumption that seeks to satisfy our selfish desires, encouraging endless expenditure of wealth and use the scarce resources of our planet like there is no tomorrow. What do we do with functioning economy if there is no value in human life?

We believe that economy should serve the humanity, and not the other way around.

Our aim, as a human family, is to learn about how, in practical terms, collective prosperity can be advanced through justice and generosity, collaboration and mutual assistance. Wealth is fine, if everyone can be wealthy and when it is created through just means and expended for good purposes, for the promotion of knowledge and toward the common good.

At Discovery Street recognise the nobility of human being and respect the individual struggle to learn to live the life, and therefore refuse to exploit the weaknesses of human nature in our business.

Lasting progress can be achieved when people, individually and as members of communities, join forces to do something they collectively value. To build both volition and capacity to contribute to the common good, each according to his or her particular circumstances is therefore an imperative. Capacity and volition go hand in hand: capacity is not only one’s potential to achieve goals, but also one’s determination to actually do it.

Everyone can contribute to social well-being by bringing people together, in commitment to find common ground between different opinions, and in capacity to elevate the discussion above disagreements.

At Discovery Street everyone can choose in what way one wants to contribute. There are no constrains or presumptions of who you are or what you care capable of. We are committed to strive to live in the world we are building, despite whatever values and conditions prevail in the world today that surrounds us.


One of the foundational concepts is the nobility inherent to every human being upon which hope for the future of humankind is built. There is goodness in every human being, capacity to show forth human values and potential, like a mine full of gems of inestimable value. Since we are all different everyone has different capacity and potential. Every human being is valuable.

At Discovery Street we want to give an opportunity for each people to contribute in a best way, as individuals and a community, regardless of their journey so far. We are all far from perfect. Everyone can benefit from a safe environment where one can discuss, exchange ideas, try different things in practice, and reflect. We recognise that as human beings we must all acquire new virtues and new capacities, find joy in service to the humanity and learn to assist others.

At Discovery Street we are learning to use the opportunities to make our own individual and collective contributions to progress of social reality – towards a positive impact that reshapes the world, despite whatever values and conditions prevail in the world today that surrounds us.
