TO SEE CHANGE … BE CHANGE
Four projects looking for partnerships, based on touch points for catalyzing social innovation and deep change:
1- micro business activator group: A community of practice where micro businesses help each other co-build their businesses and engage in a micro network. It is run under the metaphors of ‘big-fish/little-fish’ and the ‘human biome system- where no larger system can sustain the wellbeing of a society it functions in without a tightly integrated relationship with the small an unseen. I previously created a community like this in CA. See cross knowledge experience underlying this work at my blog vicdesotelle.com
2- energy independent usa: An online awareness project that focuses on sustainable energy creation use and lifestyle from an individual perspective. It includes an online store used to fund the project. I need a partner savvy in web development and interest in energy to build out and maintain the site. See the early phase of this site at eiusa.us
3- project cross point: This project engages in an alternative approach to eliminating the greatest diseases on this planet, which is child sex abuse. It tends to places of worship as vessels for healing the horrors of this pain by addressing communal process for healing and eliminating this ever pervasive epidemic that has been with humanity since early modern society. See projectcrosspoint.com
4- project homeful: Eliminating homelessness is completely doable if the will of a small percentage of people engage in making it happen. This effort creates 1000’s of small teams of individuals, each which chooses one homeless person and finds a home for them and unconditionally supports them for one year while they get back on their feet. An app and online environment is required to manage the process across the 3100 counties in the usa. Concept and draft technical specs need to be developed for a potential launch in 2019.
