Today, in the Vital Conversations Cafe call, there was a lot of energy around "bringing the conversation to the community." This "event" is a recently launched crowd-sourced, "We, the People" way to do that, which empowers communities to have those conversations and begin a cohesive, community-based world-building movement.
Creating the New World recently launched a creative, grassroots way to get the world-building started with our “Empower Your Community. Transform the World” crowd-sourcing campaign. In true grassroots fashion, the campaign pre-pays CtNW workshops in four communities this Spring by inviting “We, the People” to vote for their community and contribute small amounts to ensure that anyone who wants to participate in the workshops can.
This campaign is about more than “funding workshops.” It’s the start of doing things in New World ways. The New World won’t be created by the elite, with policy, in the halls of power. It will be created by ordinary people like us, with passion, in the heart of community. By crowd-sourcing this movement right from the start, CtNW intends to demonstrate that ‘We, the People’ can rise to the occasion and create our own future together. Let's prove it to ourselves that we can do it!
