A Social Change Platform
The core idea of everyday peace is that people are agents of change. We all fo through some struggles in our lives and we try to improve things for ourselves, our families, communities, or society as a whole. However, we do not always realize that our struggles are expression of broader systemic issues. This also means that we are not the only ones going through these struggles.
Through this community we hope that we can join hands to support each other so that we are not alone anymore. also, once we get together we can share the knowledge and experience that we need to make the changes we want more effective. This platform has been created to make digital tools and resources available to social change actors, starting from everyday people, informal communities, movements, small organisations and social enterprises around the world so they can maximise their impact.
In this platform we think of social change in a broad sense. We imagine that people have diverse ideas of what change should look like, and may focus on different aspects of it. When we think of social change, we have in mind a society where everyone has the chance to live in dignity, freedom, and is able to express one-self. We want people, animals, and plants to improve their wellbeing in a deep, holistic sense, and be able to express themselves and achieve their potential. We acknowledge that we are all interconnected, and to achieve all this we need to heal and improve our connection with ourselves, each other, and our environment.
There are of course many barriers. We live in a socio-economic system were profit is prioritized over… everything else. It is our hope that this community will bring together new visions and hope on how to resist and build new alternatives. We will need to find ways to resist power structures that reproduce violence, inequality, and discrimination, and stop certain groups of people to dominate over others, appropriating their resources, exploiting socio-economic gaps for political or economic gain.
