Following on from Rajesh Kalra in our ‘Folks for a World that Works’ interview is OurNet’s very own Town Crier and Community Builder – Carl Munson.
Carl has worked in a wide range of community-based projects, most recently at one of the UK’s oldest charities, where he helped set up a community radio station for people with a wide range of disabilities and additional needs. Now part of OurNet’s advance party in Lisbon, he’s assisting CEO and founder – Michael Brodie – with the creation of an expanded team and upgraded, beta version of the site platform.
Alongside OurNet, he and wife Louisa are setting up a natural coworking project in rural Portugal.
OurNet: Thank you for taking part in the #ffawtw interview Carl, what’s your big passion?
Carl: A ‘square peg’ from an early age, I’m delighted to be alive in these disruptive and transformational times. Much of my life has been an experiment in community and communication and I am committed to both being effective, fun and compassionate – in way that frees, enlightens and liberates humanity.
OurNet: What would a ‘world that works’ look like to you?
Carl: A world where people get to do more of what life is really about … to enjoy life, to acknowledge and celebrate life itself.
OurNet: What is stopping us from creating a ‘beautiful world we all know in our hearts is possible’?
Carl: Fear and forgetfulness
