What’S The Plan?
When you subscribe, you’ll get a series of emails that explain the main ideas behind the site, the framework to make things better. It’s not that complicated, really.
At the basic level, we just need to do two things. From there, we have a relatively straight-forward path for making progress.
The Simple Way to Make Things Less Bad
1 – Figure out what we want – Collaboratively create an evolving roadmap or framework for the goals we want to strive for, and strategies to get us there.
2 – Make the private sector do it – Leverage consumer choice to encourage the private sector to use more of their resources to help . Corporations have the resources to help improve society. Governments are clearly not up to the challenge so turning to business is really the only option.
That’s what the central idea is. What I’m referring to as Project: Fix Everything and Impact Consumerism:
- A framework/road for making progress
- Collaborative, cross-disciplinary community
- Collecting and highlight groups working on problems
- Identify problems, causes, goals and strategies to improve, to make progress
- Using consumer choice to reward companies that are helping.
- Demand businesses get involved, help identify strategies.
- Communicate those strategies to consumers, help educate about the fundamental issues.
With a working framework of our goals and strategies, and the power of consumer choice, we can create the world we want. It’s a bit more complicated than that, but at it’s core that’s the message of Less Bad.
We’re dedicated to making these ideas work.
