The walls between us have been removed.
This unique and participatory platform focuses on collaborative actions for system change.
Over the course of a few hundred years since the dawning of the Industrial Age, human activities, policies, systems and services have destroyed what has taken Mother Nature Billions of years to create.
It is time to re-define our relationship with our blue planet.
According to Rights of Nature Activist and Attorney, Thomas Linze, a featured presenter on Sunday, June 13th at 3 pm Eastern (USA/Canada);
“Humanity stands at the brink of global environmental collapse. Our environmental protection laws more often protect the very corporations that they are supposed to regulate, rather than our rivers, forests, mountains, and other ecosystems.
A global movement is starting to change that.
Using indigenous value systems to create legally enforceable rights for nature, cities, towns, and counties across the United States are creating laws that recognize the rights of nature.
This short primer from the Center for Democratic and Environmental Rights describes the philosophy and underpinnings of the rights of nature movement that has emerged in the United States and beyond.
This session will include a segment on how to design and adopt “rights of nature” laws in your community.
But right now, people within the community rights movement aren’t waiting for power brokers to fix the system.
They’re beginning to envision a new sustainability constitution by adopting new laws at the local level that are forcing those ideas upward into the state and national ones. In doing so, they are directly challenging the basic operating system of this country—one which currently elevates corporate “rights” above the rights of people, nature, and their communities—and changing it into one which recognizes a right to local, community self-government that cannot be overridden by corporations, or by governments wielded by corporate interests.
In a concerted effort to unite people around the world to overcome misunderstandings so that we can create a healthier co-Existence with our living planet, Mobilized is uniting experts and advocates from the arts and sciences, public health and public advocacy, human rights and social activism, media makers, earth shakers and concerned individuals to harness the power and potential of communities to enable more health and well-being.
This unique and participatory media event focuses on collaborative actions for system change.
Beginning with evidence-based, fully accessible communications, discoveries, revelations while learning from each other, we will collaboratively co-create and implement new projects, media hubs, systems and services starting on the ground up. All change happens at the local level, as we discover ways of amplifying and mobilizing the systems, services, policies and procedures that serve the people and the planet with purpose.
Our future is in our hands.
Starting the weekend of June 12 and 13, and then continuing every month for our on-going virtual world summits, please join us for our live and interactive conversations from wherever in the world you are. And as we continue our conversations (please see on-going schedule here) join us as we co-create a local to global media network for planetary and public healthy co-Existence: A GPS for Humanity’s next adventure
What to anticipate?
A team of media makers and Earth-shakers have united in solidarity for health and well-being to amplify the wisdom of engaged communities.
We will discuss mobilizing a new kind of energy—inspired by nature, powered by passionate people, and empowered by imagination.
The conversations will feature non-partisan activists and experts who have been there, done that, and continue to do amazing things. We will take a journey into the creative process, understand what makes them tick, what makes them talk, and understand the opportunities and overcome the obstacles that face us all.
We will take the ideas into action with a fully interactive action network dedicated to people, the planet, purpose. 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. This network focuses on equality, quality of life, personal growth, individuality, unconditional love, human rights, civil rights, transparency, privacy, accountability, and open collaboration.

How to join?
This is a free event—a starting point for something new. Furthermore, once the experience is over, we will expand the programming and ideas into action. We are going to enable communities everywhere to have a voice. We are going to create the kind of media network that empowers our collaborative human potential. We will continually reach out to people on Main Street, not Wall Street, so that together, we can harness the power and potential of communities for the health and well-being of all.
