What is it?
Physically, it starts in Boston, MA. This city has more history to make. Its historical relevance to our mission provides the proper physical environment to begin our journey of shaping the future.
Of course, in the 21st century we are all connected.
All of us, as global citizens of planet Earth, have this in common. Technology has gotten us this far and #RealSocial represents a strong commitment to continuing this journey. We want to explore technology's ability to help us define a more positive global culture - one where individual freedom is maximized, where diversity in identity is used as a natural point of integration versus using identity as a point of division and fear, and where people act and behave in a self-aware state versus the self-defensive state which produces much of the toxicity we see today in human relations online and beyond.
using technology to make the world a better place
Sounds simple right?
We all know how impossibly complicated it is for the ordinary human stuck in the trappings of society to achieve any amount of success in these regards. Let's face it, the social networks we currently use today have not significantly empowered ordinary citizens (in developed, first world, countries at least) to impact the course of events in their governments and nations as a whole. Regardless of what you think of the Arab Spring, the role social networks had on creating that enormous impact is well documented.
How about the first world? Where's our technology for enormous impact?
The Citizen's Cafe community operates under a cohesive set of values. Simple principles and ideas are kept in mind. The desire to seek the truth in all things and evolve to a higher state of conscience and consciousness is our goal. We want to raise human consciousness on a global scale.
It is with this mighty attitude and strength of conviction in purpose where we find our foundation to happily break bread together.
It's time to get Real. #RealSocial
