The Global Transformation Movement

Today there are literally hundreds of millions of people and hundreds of thousands of groups working for a better world. The term “Global Transformation Movement” (GTM) attempts to capture this planetary movement that encompasses the full spectrum of interests, innovations, ideologies and methodologies related to environmental protection & stewardship, social change, political & economic reform, indigenous culture, activism, humanitarianism, spirituality and personal development. It spans all religions, cultures, nations, age-groups and sexual-orientations. It includes NGOs, communities, tribes, grassroots projects, ethical businesses, cooperatives, networks, alliances, movements and more.

 

Throughout this vast, diverse, creative and uplifting movement we have preserved and are spreading the heart and roots of humanity’s ancient knowledge and wisdom. Simultaneously, we continue to develop countless ecological solutions, social & technological innovations, equality-based economic & political models, and ever-evolving pathways for exploring the realms of human consciousness — including our inherent oneness, and how we relate to ourselves, each other and our natural environment. In other words, within this movement we already have everything we need to create the More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible (Charles Eisenstein).

Remarkably however, news about this movement is conspicuously absent from the mainstream media, which means that most of the human population is completely unaware about all the new and emerging possibilities for how we, as a species, can all live in complete abundance and equality — as opposed to the current paradigm of artificial scarcity and hierarchy. This “imposed ignorance” is perhaps the most influential factor in maintaining the (dysfunctional and separation-oriented) status quo.

 

Co-creating the world’s first Global Solutions Day !

An unprecedented global unified action — and a supporting online open source platform — to publicly identify and showcase ALL life-affirming solutions for a Global Transition

Sharing Solutions to Inspire the World into a New Paradigm

Today we have an abundance of common sense solutions to effectively address all our ecological, social, political, economic and financial challenges. Yet, because the corporate media hardly speaks about them, most people are completely unaware.

The system is dying in plain sight

Right now billions of people are aware:

  • that we are destroying our natural environment;
  • that governments and politicians primarily serve the profit-interests of large corporations and global financiers;
  • that the corporate media and marketing industries practice mass manipulation;
  • that our industrial food systems are toxic to our bodies and the biosphere;
  • that all these systems promote and reward corruption, greed, exploitation and deception.

Everyday more and more people are seeing the cracks in the system. We are awakening to our financial enslavement, and how this system of centralised money and power is in fact causing and exacerbating most of our global crises.​

Mass disillusionment and mass protests are escalating all over the planet, yet we still see very little energy directed into exposing and exploring the solutions and new models.

The Mass Media ignores the New Earth that is already birthing

Due to the mass media blackout on solutions, perhaps less than 1% of the human population are aware of the fact that we already have everything we need to peacefully transition into wise and evolving social systems that benefit all people and our planet.

The mainstream media also ignores a “Global Transformation Movement” that is estimated at +700 million people and ~1 million collectives who are each being, living, developing and / or manifesting one or more solutions.

Yes! we are many more than most people even within the movement would imagine! And all across this vast and diverse populace we share a common commitment and passion for creating and experimenting with solutions to our global and local challenges.

We have the knowledge and technology to provide for all and to reduce our impacts on the environment. The emergence of a global civil society is creating new opportunities to build a democratic and humane world. Our environmental, economic, political, social, and spiritual
challenges are interconnected, and together we can forge inclusive solutions.​

~ The Earth Charter (2000)

Solutions are our common denominator and magnetic attractor

The Global Transformation Movement is already united through our common interest to develop socially and ecologically conscious solutions. In this sense, the word “solutions” invites and includes a broader understanding than its conventional use, ranging from personal development practices (being the solution) to systemic transition design (co-creating a global culture of compassion and conscious innovation).

As more and more collectives co-create Global Solutions Day we will co-catalyze a snowball effect of inspiration and cultural re-education that will attract all the resources, exposure and support that our pioneering solutions and communities merit.

September 23rd, 2017 is Global Solutions Day!

What is Global Solutions Day?

Global Solutions Day is an unprecedented global civic action that is dedicated to unveiling and celebrating the countless inspiring and empowering solutions and alternative systemic models that we already have.

We are inviting all organisations, projects, communities, tribes, networks and alliances who are developing and / or promoting solutions- from all sectors of human affairs (examples in diagram below)- to co-create local events to bring our solutions into the streets and parks so that mainstream people can learn how hundreds of millions of people are creating a more beautiful world.

This worldwide educational initiative is supported by an online platform(launching early August) that will evolve into an open source global hub for gathering, sharing and openly reviewing all holistic solutions, conscious collectives, collaborative technologies and alternative systems for a global transition. The solutionsrevolution.global website will list multiple solutions directories and toolkits, economic and political game-changers, online and physical learning centres, emerging technologies and a list of supporting and unifying collectives that each represent a world of inspiration and opportunities for meaningful action. The platform will also allow people and groups to connect and coordinate at the local level.

To us, as caretakers of the heart of Mother Earth, falls the responsibility of turning back the powers of destruction.
You yourself are the one who must decide.
You alone — and only you — can make this crucial choice, to walk in honor or to dishonor your relatives.
On your decision depends the fate of the entire World.
Each of us is put here in this time and this place to personally decide the future of humankind.
~ Chief Arvol Looking Horse

Additional opportunities that may emerge from “Solutions Day” that will support a “Solutions Revolution”

  • To identify and prioritise immediate game-changing innovations that undermine mass-scale ecological destruction and that promote a harmonious redistribution of power and wealth.
  • To integrate information and strategies about addressing current crises eg. the African famine crises.
  • To spark a coherent global movement for peaceful systemic change.

If you go to one demonstration, and then go home, the people in power can live with that. What they can’t live with is sustained pressure that keeps building, people that keep learning lessons from last time and doing it better the next time.
~ Noam Chomsky

 

 

Until the Coeō platform is up we can use the United Earth Community fb-group to gather and share ideas.

Wake up! We are heading for the wrong direction !!

Onze planeet maakt turbulente tijden door.

Een deel daarvan zal wellicht te wijten zijn aan omstandigheden volledig buiten onze controle zoals de komst van de onbekende planeet Nibiru, maar ook een groot deel van wat er op aarde gebeurt heeft, te maken met door de mens veroorzaakte zaken.

Een belangrijk element in dat geheel is geo-engineering, chemtrails in de volksmond, oftewel het manipuleren van het klimaat.

Dat manipuleren kan ver gaan. Het kan variëren van het veranderen van luchtstromen tot het veroorzaken van aardbevingen en zelfs mind control van mensen.

Al deze zaken en nog veel meer komen aan bod in de hiernavolgende video. Het is een goed overzicht van de huidige stand van zaken op onze aarde. Niet alleen geo-engineering komt aan bod, maar ook de situatie met betrekking tot Griekenland, de demonisering van Rusland en de voorbereidingen voor een Derde Wereldoorlog. Verder graancirkels en het komende transhumanisme, de vermenging van mens en machine. Niet te vergeten Big Pharma en de mysterieuze dood van de holistische artsen.

20 Indicators That Signal You May Be Living In The Matrix

Morpheus: “You take the blue pill, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.” –The Matrix

Whether you are aware of it or not, many in the West are born, grow, and die a slave to the Matrix. The 1999 cult movie of the same name starring Keanu Reeves questions what is real and what is simulated reality. While purely a fictitious work by the Wachowskis brothers, the movie touches on themes which challenge the current model of society and points to the problem of indoctrination and a lack of awareness amongst the populace. In search of answers, the mild-mannered Neo, a computer programmer, meets Morpheus, who tries to explain the Matrix. On entering the room Morpheus asks Neo, “Do you want to know what it is?” He explains…

The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. You can see it when you look out your window, or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work. or you go to church, when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth. – The Matrix

Having tried to extract myself from the rat race and city living many years ago, I found myself experiencing my own version of the Matrix on a recent trip to Sydney (coincidentally where they filmed much of the movie). I decided to document some of the more obvious things that stood out to me after having been somewhat unplugged from the Matrix.

To clarify, I personally define the Matrix as a set of beliefs, cultural norms, attitudes, and conditioned states which are pervasive throughout society. These are initially created under an economic rationale which offer products and services to citizens. To promote these goods and services various themes, ideas, and ideologies are promoted to establish compliance and persuade individuals to partake in consumptive patterns. Along the way, this information becomes embedded within a society, creating cultural norms and distracting individuals and society from the truth. As individuals living in a society, we become subservient to authority and start conforming to certain illogical cultural constructs. Eventually, like a fish swimming in the ocean, we are unaware of the water that surrounds us, we become unaware of the Matrix…

Twenty  indicators that signal you may be living in the Matrix:

1. You spend most of your time devoted to paying off a mortgage rather than enjoying life.

2. You can’t wait for the weekend to come.  

3. You judge your success by the car you drive, the suburb you live in, and the size of the house you own.

4. The wealthy are rewarded for plundering the earth while those trying to save it are ridiculed.

5. You work in a job you don’t enjoy, thinking the money you earn will offset the misery of working in a job or career you are not passionate about. 

6. You think that by a taking a pill your ills will be cured.

7. You think that someone focused on eating healthy, organic fresh foods is weird, while eating highly processed, nutrient devoid foods is normal. 

8. You think buying stuff will make you happy.

9. You watch the news on television and think this is the truth.

10. You’re more focused on your favourite sports team than concerned about the natural world and environment on which you depend for survival.

11. You believe growth and the development of the economy is a good thing and that globalization creates jobs.

12. You conform with the status quo and never question why things are done.  

13. You think traffic congestion, pollution, and sensory overload are part of normal everyday life.

14. You think there is a difference between political parties and that they will enact real change. 

15. You think there are terrorists around every corner and they are a threat to you and your community, despite the fact that you have 150 times more chances of being hit by lightning than being involved in a terrorist attack.

16. You think eating genetically modified food and eating fruit and vegetables sprayed with pesticides is OK.

17. You think the mainstream media is independent and unbiased.

18. You think constant distraction through the media such as sport, trivial affairs, and celebrity gossip is news.

19. You think living next to a cell tower is cool because you get better reception.

20. You wait in line for the next release of the latest technological gadget.

A New Education Model for Humanity

The education system is due for a major paradigm shift. For too long, it has been stuck in the dark ages. Teachers still stand at the front of the classroom and deliver information, much of it meaningless in the whole scheme of things. Schools encourage competition, conformity, obedience and standardization, while also engaging in the suppression of our natural, creative impulses and critical thinking faculties. Children are moulded and conditioned via the factory model of education to be unquestioning worker bees in a system that does not care for human progress. As a result, our species is stagnating. In order to reach the next stage of our evolution, the education system must undergo a revolution of its own.

Forced education. Like the term prison, this term sounds harsh. But, again, if we have compulsory education, then we have forcededucation. The term compulsory, if it has any meaning at all, means that the person has no choice about it.

The question worth debating is this: Is forced education–and the consequential imprisonment of children–a good thing or a bad thing? Most people seem to believe that it is, all in all, a good thing; but I think that it is, all in all, a bad thing. I outline here some of the reasons why I think this, in a list of what I refer to as “seven sins” of our system of forced
