Founded in 2007 in Houston, Texas, the Menecracy Development Institute (MDI) emerged from the collaborative efforts of a team of dedicated Urban and Developmental planners affiliated with the American Planning Institute. Rooted in the principles outlined in the Human Development Theory, MDI stands as a beacon for inclusive democracy, with a distinct focus on extending its reach to marginalized and neglected groups of people, as well as regions where developmental planning has historically been absent or intentionally excluded.
MDI’s fundamental ideology revolves around the visionary concept of “NOW EVERYONE,” a groundbreaking theory that advocates for the extension of political democracy to encompass every individual within a region, city, and community. This theme underscores MDI’s commitment to ensuring that, regardless of circumstances, every person is not only invited but actively included in the progress of humanity across all dimensions, be it physical or non-physical.
At the core of MDI’s mission is the unwavering belief that inclusive progress is the key to a thriving society. As champions of all-inclusive development, MDI goes beyond rhetoric, providing tangible opportunities and comprehensive training in developmental planning to communities worldwide. Through a diverse array of projects and innovative developmental tools, MDI aims to empower communities, fostering a sense of ownership and active participation in shaping their own destinies. The institute’s commitment to inclusivity extends to the very fabric of its training programs, ensuring that they cater to the unique needs and aspirations of diverse populations.
MDI stands as a pioneering force in the field, bridging the gap between theory and practical implementation. By offering developmental planning opportunities to all communities, MDI exemplifies its dedication to creating a world where progress knows no bounds and where the principles of inclusive democracy are not just ideals but lived realities. As the institute continues to evolve, it remains steadfast in its pursuit of a future where every voice is heard, every community is empowered, and the ethos of “NOW EVERYONE” guides the trajectory of global development.
