Do you strive for more environmental sustainability, social justice and democracy at all scales? Do you feel isolated and discouraged in a society that is materialistic, short-sighted and increasingly brutal? Do you believe that social relations should be based on mutual respect, on kindness and fraternity? Our Mutual Support Groups are here for you. They are open to anyone. Participation is free of charge and free from any commitment from your side.
The members of a Mutual Support Group support and encourage each other in their strive for a better future for everyone
The mainstream features of our societies seem to all go in the wrong direction. Their most visible and massive trends go towards ever-increasing material consumption of ever more futile and destructive goods and services, towards unheard-of inequalities and towards xenophobic parochialism and aggressiveness (see here our vision of the global challenges of the 21st century).
When confronted with such trends, it is normal to sometimes feel helpless and discouraged.
We believe however that there is hope to reverse these trends, and room for action at collective scale. It is the very reason why we create the CosmoPolitical Cooperative.
The first step is to restore our courage and our hope, in friendly, safe and supportive groups, the Mutual Support Groups. In these groups, we share our aspirations and fears, our experiences, observations and reflections, our desires and our actions. More important still: we share support, encouragement and good humour!
Each Mutual Support Group is made of 6 to 12 participants, which share the same language and are available at the same time in the week. They self-organise via e-mail to meet (physically or virtually) on a regular basis.
Each Mutual Support Group is free to organise as it chooses. The CosmoPolitical Cooperative provides here (#LINK) some recommendations on how to run such a group in a respectful and fruitful way.
Find your Mutual Support Group!
To register to a Mutual Support Group, you simply need to send a registration e-mail to the corresponding mailing list. You will receive an e-mail requesting confirmation. Once you have confirmed your registration to the mailing list, you will be able to exchange e-mails with the other members of the Mutual Support Group, and be able to define with them when and how to meet. You are of course free to leave the Mutual Support Group at any time: you simply need to send an e-mail to the de-registration address sent at the bottom of any e-mail of the mailing list.
You will find below the registration links to the Mutual Support Groups, listed as per the moment in the week when their members are available.
