Reimagining Politics

Raised by 2 people in 1 month
Seventeen months ago, I began traveling the world at my own expense armed only with a belief in humanity’s ability to solve our own problems. Through 18 cities in 12 nations in Europe, the US and Latin America, I have consistently encountered brilliantly resourceful civic innovators whose projects are changing the way politics is done.

My mission with Reimagining Politics   is to redefine the practice of politics by creating transformative, hands on educational experiences that teach, empower and connect the world's most effective civic innovators across borders.

These civic innovators are creating powerful and scalable new Creative Commons projects such as sophisticated data mapping of hidden social economies, national networks of community exchanges designed to preserve heritage seed stocks, local "quiero mi barrio" (I Love My Neighborhood) initiatives in South America, Civic Dinners modeled on Thomas Jefferson's community dinners at Monticello, entrepreneurial social hacking, urban acupuncture being practiced by architects and artists who have joined forces and much, much more.

These civic and social innovators know that we can make real and lasting change, but we have to be ready to do the work of Reimagining Politics , and that includes reimagining our role as engaged citizens. That is what this project is about.

Civic Innovation Tours
Launching later this year after months of planning, I will begin offering new Civic Innovation Tours  that are available only from Reimagining Politics. These spectacular and engaging tours working with leading civic innovators worldwide are designed to be nothing less than transformative life experiences. 

Please sign up for our newsletter today to be among the first people notified when our Civic Innovation Tours launch.

Thank you for visiting and supporting my GoFundMe campaign! Together, I know we can do the work of Reimagining Politics to create real and lasting change.
