Our mission is to release the collective power of the people in a way that enables the solutions delivering the greatest value to people and planet, to trickle to the surface.
The systems that run today's economy restrict the ways we can share and make it so the more you have, the easier it is to get ahead. This makes reducing the wealth gap impossible, increases social and political turmoil, and puts pressure on resources, that can't be sustained.
Did you know 80% of people live on less than $5,000 a year? "Instead of an economy that works for the prosperity of all, for future generations, and for the planet, we have instead created an economy for the 1%" – Oxfam, January 2016
If today's economy only serves a minority, there's a huge opportunity to implement new ways of doing things that can turn things around. Solutions for new ways of working – that release individual skills and maximise use of resources – are well on their way, but many people living in underserved communities still can't connect.
By giving innovators the means to communicate with these markets, we can catalyze change, and bridge the gap. Think Occupy with an action plan attached!
CM works by bringing investors, developers and supporters of meaningful solutions into one big community: a community brought together through a common desire for an economy centred on genuine practices of sharing and cooperation.
We keep it simple. Impacting meaningful change doesn't require rocket science, but rather the means and desire to communicate and serve each others needs. The simpler it is, the faster we can share what we need and what we do. CM:
- Works with Project Leaders and locals in unconnected communities to identify and implement simple tools for communication, information and resource exchange.
- Incorporates a crowdfunding revenue model that supports Citizen Journalists in a way that benefits Impact Investors, Community Projects and Design Innovators at the same time.
- Offers data analysis, consultancy and proposal development services that help Impact Investors to invest in ways that maximizes what they learn and the impact they make.
