Let us be frank — our world is not going the way we want it to go. The social problems are growing, our mothership “Earth” is struggling, we are all becoming a bit more self-centered, our education systems are a mockery for the majority, the government pays the banks with our money… we could go on and on. We have reasons to complain, many reasons, and as nobody seems to be doing anything other than the few and the chosen. We invite you to become one of them. We do not need to convince people, we believe we are many already, we just need to connect and get vocal.
We should all stop complaining and do something for somebody who hasn’t been as lucky as us. After millions of years of evolution, we can do something about this growing gap between rich and poor, between the haves and have nots. What matters is not how many good ideas and intentions you have, but what you do with them. At the Hummingbird Collective we are convinced that there are many people and organizations that care for their fellow human beings. We are better served by connecting ideas and activities that can have a positive impact on all of us. We want to connect, fuse, recombine. We want to complete each other, and form new collaborations. Good actions are constrained by their context, by the parts and skills that surround them. We offer a way of opening this context in a more protected way. Our boundaries will grow as we explore these boundaries — new actions and ideas will pop up and distribute or grow into something bigger and better.
With the enormous amount of people wanting to help, assist, advise and teach, we are convinced that we are now better prepared than ever to make this world a better place. In our network, good ideas and actions will have the natural propensity to go into circulation. The trick to having good ideas is not to sit around in glorious isolation and try to think big thoughts. The trick is to get more parts on the table. Building blocks, spare parts that can be reassembled. We are hundreds already, and we need you to grow and become part of this social change — stop complaining and start doing something about it!
IT IS TRUE, WE ARE 99%, PROBABLY EVEN MORE THAN THAT!
