MULTI-MEDIA EDUCATION & MOVEMENT-BUILDING WOMEN'S COLLABORATIVE
OTHER WORLDS - The mission of Other Worlds is to document and educate and about alternative models of social and economic relations.
Other Worlds is a women-driven, multi-media
education and movement-building collaborative. Other Worlds inspires hope
and knowledge that another world is possible, and helps build it. We compile
and bring to light political, economic, social, and environmental alternatives
that are flourishing throughout the world, and inspire and help the public
Other Worlds is a collaborative, a rich
mix of paid and volunteer organizers, activists, writers, artists,
intellectuals, and students. We work in indigenous and campesino coalitions,
research institutions, and grassroots networks. Our group spans the gamut
from a farmer to one of
Other Worlds knows the power of cross-fertilization of information, experience, strategy, and networks. We have seen how collaboration can help birth and build movements of people directly impacted by the problems and their allies, and how it can increase their effectiveness.
Our program includes:
1) Documenting, together with social movements, cases of thriving economic, social, and environmental alternatives that are flourishing around the world - with an emphasis on gender;
2) Creating multiple media and educational materials for extensive outreach throughout the Americas, in English and Spanish. We share concrete models, strategies, and lessons for work at home, and imperatives for just national and global economic policy;
3) Inspiring action. In partnership with movements and community groups, we help people become active for just structural alternatives in their own communities and sectors. We connect them with organizations (and organizations with each other), grassroots campaigns, policy initiatives, other strategies, and resources; and
4) Generating support for the alternatives and the movements behind them. We campaign, fundraise, and promote the movements we feature and others who share the vision.
