Why CM?

Our economic system works in a way that means the more you have the easier it is to get ahead, which creates imbalance in the way we use our resources, and 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 – and 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 means to unite.

"CM is like a crowdfunding platform, but – instead of inviting contributions in return for gifts – it rewards citizen journalists for promoting meaningful ‘local to global’ projects, that give impact investors the real opportunity to generate people, planet and profit returns."
Caroline Smalley, Co-Founder

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.

Activity is brought together through a Glocalized Hub. The more investments you bring to projects, the more you’ll receive. To show we’re being accountable, revenues will be posted online.
