New online platform aims to harness the power of experts to unite us towards a sustainable, regenerative world that works for people, planet, purpose
Artists and scientists, producers and publishers, media makers and earth shakers unite to collaboratively build a new digital media info-structure to unite us towards a sustainable and regenerative 21st Century and Beyond.
We are called to be the architects of the future, or to become its victims
A new digital platform has emerged dedicated to uniting people everywhere towards a a healthy world that works for all the people and the planet. Mobilized.news is a collaborative and cooperative network of highly empowered and artists and producers, scientist and social activists, media makers and Earth shakers from around the world who refuse to sit on the sidelines as world leaders and corporate leaders continue to plunder the planet for their own short-term, myopic goals while pushing us towards the brink of possible extinction.
Created as an organic and holistic ecosystem of systems, Mobilized.news was co-created by a team of passionate producers who have been inspired by the works of visionary Buckminster Fuller who said:
“Nature is a totally efficient, self-regenerating system. IF we discover the laws that govern this system and live synergistically within them, sustainability will follow and humankind will be a success.”
As seasoned professionals, we understand that information it’s the currency and the life blood of a healthy Society—but when the information, our life blood—becomes corrupted by outside influences and corporate lobbies, the consequences are fatal. We are now experiencing the consequences of flawed—and corrupt influence from special interest groups and corporate lobbies..
A society cannot function when it is kept in a constant state of confusion.
Just as a human body needs healthy and nutritious food and activities to sustain our health, people everywhere need unrestricted access to the wisdom and knowledge of experts in their fields.
What if we harnessed the collective intelligence of the greatest resource on Earth? Ourselves!
Are we open to the possibility that many of the answers to our biggest challenges
have been hiding in plain sight?
Imagine collaboratively modeling an ideal integrated multimedia network, a cooperative and complementary series of social enterprises showcasing the most ethical policies, initiatives and advanced technologies within its very DNA.

You are invited to be a collaborator in creation of a next generation communications info-structure and action network for the health and well-being: Mobilized.news
If you believe that you have the talent, the desire and the dedication to an important and integral part of a movement of movements dedicated to creating a media information structure that unites us towards the health and well-being of people and planet and purpose, we look forward to your being part of our Network .
.”As we look back on 2020 we can all see how the Coronavirus and Covid-19 have made it clear to all of us that globally something is deeply and systemically wrong.
As world-celebrated Author Arundhati Roy stated:
“As we look back on 2020 we see how Covid-19 has made it starkly clear to all of us that globally something is deeply, systemically wrong. As Arundhati Roy stated a portal has opened that demands we change our lives. Those of us cocooned at home working on zoomland, or those of us struggling with economic uncertainty and compromised health, have become even more aware of how important relations with others are, how fragile our environment is, and how well-being in place matter
Mobilized’s Conference for Our Future is offering the possibility to share with others how we can change our lives collectively. Boldly entitled ‘The Power of All of Us Starts with U” , the Conference offers the space for people to come together in The Hague to talk through: what kind of caring communities can we build together? What do we mean by radical change? And how can we foster a sense of trust as we explore who is the ‘we’ who will create change?
There are many paths to a healthier future; From degrowth and the elimination of toxic pollutants into the soil, water and air, from building for the long-term instead of creating systems which enslave us as constant consumers, from deeper understandings of who we are in relationship to our world and the Universe, to re-thinking energy and transportation, Mobilized’s Conference for Our Future is inviting artists and show producers, scientists and social activists, earth shakers and media makers from all parts of our World to come together, united in Solidarity for the health and well-being of all life (people/planet/purpose) and collaboratively build an international network dedicated to our collective health and well-being.
“The Corporate world and giant tech behomoths have proven to be incapable of doing such a thing as their business models—based on constant growth on a finite planet— hamstring their ability to do so. In order to truly enable the changes we want on many levels, not only economics—- we invite communities to come together to share a vision of radical change.
The Conference for our Future will be pushing participants to take very seriously the lessons of Covid-19: to reduce consumption; to live within our planetary boundaries; to put care not growth at the center of our daily lives; to value relations with human and more than human others; and to recognize the deep systemic wrongs to be addressed and changed.
In order to tackle those vital concerns, the Conference will be building on many traditions – from non-violent anarchy, radical feminism, conscious creations, from spiritual beliefs to political movements, from ecological economics to critical agrarian studies. It will draw on experiences in The Netherlands, Europe and transnationally.
Most of all, it will be an event that focuses on communication and connection. It will embrace ways of learning, working with artists and activists as well as scholars. Such combined skills will enable participants to acknowledge the deep emotions that impact us as we struggle with Covid-19, climate change, ecological crises, and the continuing systemic inequalities that mark and mar this world. But while knowing we face difficult times, the Conference is also held in the spirit of hope. The dialogues will be creative and exciting. They will be revealing. They will be about learning what and how we need to change. The Conference will help participants confront the messy, painful world we are in, but not alone, by working collaboratively, we will find ways to bring about radical change.
How can just five days achieve all of this? Especially given the impact of Covid on all our lives? Previous degrowth events were confident of 1000s attending. In August 2021 we can hardly imagine even a few hundred people gathering together, without masks? No social distancing? We will have to deal with all the difficult issues of inclusivity – including new rules and policies on who can be vaccinated and who can travel. Long haul travel for many reasons will not be possible. These are to be the new realities which make holding celebratory, hopeful and inclusive degrowth events more complex.
On the other hand, we are already working towards just such an event. The process of preparation for the is itself creating a caring community. There are nearly 60 people who are working in the Assembly (our organizational collective). They are working on-line, based in The Netherlands and beyond. In the discussions and collective planning, they (we) are envisioning and shaping the event. The Assembly is open to all who want to join and operates on principles of care, solidarity, transparency and consensus decision-making.
On a personal note, I can attest that being an active member of the Assembly, particularly in these strange isolating times, is energizing and exciting. It shows how organizing events, degrowth style, holds out the promise of doing things otherwise that takes us far beyond traditional academic conferences.
There are millions of people already working on creating a better tomorrow. Join the Network that unites us together in solidarity for a better tomorrow, today.
Join us – by responding to the call for participation by engaging in the on-line key conversations that will lead up to the August Conference – and become part of this vibrant, exciting, caring community.
