Uniting For A World That Can Thrive
The Citizens Media® (CM) is a bridge for transitioning to the new economy.
The bridge will be built by inviting and rewarding conversations that attract investments into projects where people, planet and prosperity can thrive.
Our goal is to create a self organizing system bringing people, communities and resources together through shared values, authentic action and equal opportunity for all.
Our economic system works in a way that means the more you have the easier it is to get ahead, which makes reducing the wealth gap impossible to do. This way of working cannot be sustained.
Yet most of today's economy came about by serving the wealthy, leaving most of us underserved. What's more – we live in the most interconnected time in human history – a huge opportunity to turn things around!
Solution building is well on its way, but it's happening in different places, and on different platforms. It needs a movement through which to unite, which is why we started CM.
How It Works
Conversations increase awareness and investor confidence for projects delivering 3P solutions: people, planet and profit – the "three pillars of sustainability". This spurs investments into a Global Investment Cooperative, that enables anyone to be a member and takes a local approach in managing where money should go.
Contributors of conversations get rewarded through a mobile friendly currency called 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.
