Drafting content to start a Hylo group[edit source]

Below is a sort of tailored checklist to help content creation for a Hylo group. Ref: hylozoic.gitbook.io/hylo/guides

  • Name of group: Alternative Co-creators, Other options: Alternative Global Co-creators, Alternative Global CANs. Yes we CAN, ...
  • Image: banner type?
  • Purpose: Cosmo-local communities reconnected to planet
  • About the group / Intro Text:
CANS connect people directly to the planet.
Firstly by providing access to the best solutions that are being prototyped all over the world..
Secondly by reconnecting people to the land they live on – the source of their resilience and flourishing,
Thirdly though connecting CANs to CANs globally, The fractal growth of people waking up to their conditions, connecting to themselves and to each other, building new local economies – is unprecedented. (ref?)

In more detail, the work that we are naming at The Alternative Global as needing to be developed urgently.

1. The development of a tool box and methodology for CANs. This is not simply community organising, but cosmolocalism. Connecting I to We to World as a new form of energy, or life force. Doing this well creates soft power - the force of attraction.

2. Interconnectivity between CANs globally. This is a technical but also deeply narrative challenge. The rewards are a radical sharing, not only of intelligence but also belonging. When this global network becomes visible, people everywhere will have an alternative to choose.

3. A new media system. This arises directly out of the news agenda of 1 and 2. Capable of joining up the dots and translating its appeal to the world." refs: Alternative Editorial: We're Doing The Work, 8 December 2022, thealternative.org.uk; CANwiki
