Welcome to Mighty Networks, our new home online

As an international community of teachers, we need an online space to connect with each other. 

The “free” social media platforms that we have been using are not free. They are exploiting and monetising our attention, and also driving the worldwide disembodiment and mental health crisis. As embodiment teachers this is exactly what we are challenging and supporting people to shift away from. If we want to stay aligned with our values, then we need a platform that is more suitable for us, and these platforms are not free. This is why we need your financial contribution.

How we price membership also needs to align to Open Floor values of inclusivity because there are differences across our community in geography, social status and privilege. We need more flexible and inclusive membership options to embody economic justice.

“One price for all” plays into restrictive and exclusive systems.

Those who don’t have a lot of money either can’t join, or the price is so low that the community is not financially sustainable. On the other hand, those who can afford to, would be underpaying for the resources the community is providing.

Public services are funded by the public, not an individual. If we want membership to this community to be accessible and inclusive, then we need to band together.

All of this requires a paradigm shift.

 

When we ask for a paradigm shift here, we do not want to leave it as a thought experiment. If we really want Open Floor – and therefore ourselves, as teachers – to thrive, we cannot rely on the existing market logic and exploitative pricing models.

To get us off to a strong footing OFI is sponsoring the first 6 months of membership fees for all teachers. This will give us all some breathing space to settle in and get a sense of how it works. After 6 months the membership option you chose below will start. You can change to a different membership option at any point. Fluid, not fixed 😊

Individuals cannot create economic justice. It is a collective, systemic project.

This community is one step in that direction.

Let’s do this! 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼
