Uniting For A World That Can Thrive

The Citizens Media® (CM) is a bridge for transitioning to the new economy.

It works by inviting and rewarding conversations that attract investments into projects where people, planet and prosperity can thrive.

F.A.Q.

We Have The Power To Change Our World!

Our economy is based on systems that reward profitability, but not social or environmental well being. This creates imbalance in the way we manage the production of goods and services. It increases the wealth gap and discourages open sharing of knowledge, resources and ideas. With our planet’s ecosystem at risk of collapse, this way of working cannot be sustained.

Yet today’s economy came about by serving the needs of the wealthiest – leaving most of us underserved – and we live in the most interconnected, technologically advanced time in human history: a huge opportunity to turn things around!

People are talking, and solution building is well on its way, but it's happening in different places, and on different platforms. They need a means to unite, which is why we started CM.

How It Works

Conversations spur investments into a Global Investment Cooperative, that supports projects delivering 3P solutions: people, planet and profit – the "three pillars of sustainability".

Contributors of conversations get rewarded through Comcoins®, that can be used to purchase products and services sold by projects, or to trade for alternative currencies in a values-based, 3P Exchange.

Activity is brought together through a Glocalized Hub, that’s built on a platform connecting distributed networks of community-based sites.

Rewards to contributors are afforded through service agreements between Co-op Projects, and an operations company taking care of the hub. The more investments you bring to projects, the more you’ll receive.

To show we’re being accountable, revenues will be posted online.

Hold Up! ...we're not quite there yet

Initial development costs are being supported through corporate sponsors investing through a learning partnership, that brings together leading experts, demystifying questions in helping to figure out how CM will grow.

Called The Great Debate, the learning begins with a series of Google Hangouts, where anyone who wants to can get involved. For our sponsors it offers hands-on participation, leading to connections, opportunity and insights, that excite their global offering, while having a positive impact at the same time.
