What are the organizations that we should look to work with? Please add your own here is a brief list.


Channel 6 TV

Good News Network

Paul Hawkins organization WiserEarth.

Would someone like to create the list and is someone interested in taking a role of contacting other organizations down the road?


To see a channel of existing Vision Video Stories go to www.malcolmcohan.com. With this new technology anyone can create his or her own TV channel.


Some ideas

Capture all of the people that have developed vision boards from the secret

Paul – break down our currency including our stories. Find an exchange for currency and our talents

Janet – bring group together locally to share their visions and support each other

Work with youth to have them develop Vision Videos for baby boomers. We coordinate and match. George’s example of taking 15 hours to create a vision video and his daughter did one in 3 hours

The Vision Videos or Visions for Humanity are one minute long that are played on media. They take people to a common website where we can have longer pieces that give the full story


What do we call this



The gift exchange


( Note George has secured the url TELAVISION.org)


What’s next Strategic planning session

We agreed to come together for a 2-3 day strategic planning session to be facilitated by George in the Pacific Northwest the on a weekend in early November. Cate agreed to look into possible sites. ( Note. George will secure Whidbey this coming week, stay tuned.)


Group conference calls

We are going to start group conference calls every Thursday at 5:00 central, 3:00 pacific. George will communicate the number. An agenda will be developed. We will need someone to take notes. ( Note: The conference call NUMBER is 218-486-3600 ex 4146431)



We develop a Video Vision Story for our vision. We need to create a Video that describes what it wil look like when we have accomplished what we have set out to do. We worked on the first part that is the poem or words we will use.

(Amy suggests that we all create our own 1 minute vision for humanity video as well as the group video)


Here are the brainstormed words. George agreed to put together a first draft of a poem to share with the group.


Positive message

Love is the Opening Door

We are the ones we have been waiting for

We are all connected

40,000 local communities deepened

Outrageous effective action

Everyone can create a vision

The square root of one percent

10,000,000 participate

Media and the Internet

Future now


Everyone can play

Every minute counts

60 second videos

Tell the stories

Every connection leads to one

Take over the media for DAY

These are movie trailers that send people to 8-12 minute movies for the whole story


What is our purpose?


Just doing one changes you

Inspire and ignite

Sense of possibility

Change the course of the future

Help answer what to do with my life

A movement


Blessings to all,



George Johnson
