Educating for Authentic Hope
February 19, 2017

Hello from Perú. The long article that I referenced in my last update was published this weekend as two articles. Links follow below. These See More

THE STORY:

Meurer Education is built on ideas that bring people together across borders through education, entertainment and travel. My mission for the project is to "reimagine politics" by expanding the range of what is politically possible.

I do this by working with highly effective, paradigm shifting changemakers worldwide through a mix of education and highly innovative travel and entertainment projects.

After working on this education project for the past year, my vision for what we can accomplish has expanded dramatically. The projects I am finding, helping, connecting and partnering with can be scaled to produce dramatic social change.

These range from an all volunteer program teaching English language and art in the poorest barrio in Colombia, to a brilliant social mapping initiative in Spain that is now spreading across Latin America, and soon the US with my help.  

Our growing network includes a global cooperative of politically savvy hackers in Chiapas, México who are using socially conscious tech entrepreneurism to empower young people.

We are working with students from the Monterrey Institute of Technology and the Open MIND Center in Guadalajara. (MIND=México Innovación y Diseño) to explore new intiatives.

We are helping a gardening program that works in poor Latin American communities to teach ecology, nutrition and organic farming that lead to self-sustaining micro-enterprises that sell their own organic produce.

These previously uncoordinated projects have enormous potential to radically expand what we can accomplish through political-social innovation and education. Please subscribe to my newsletter for regular updates.

I have been self-funding this project since 2015 with only $1,150 in donations, but I need your help to continue. Travel is expensive, even when there are no emergencies, as there sometimes are in real life. Occasional small university honoraria do not come close to covering my costs.

My ongoing expenses include an amazing new website, social ecosystem and integrated payment gateway that will launch at the end of January. With a few thousand dollars, we can also mount a strong publicity program starting in January. By the end of March, we will have non-profit status.

I hope that you will donate on this page or commit to a monthly contribution to my Patreon account to allow my work to continue. And please share this project with others in your network and ask them to help too. I still need to reach my original $7,500 goal to keep growing this project.

For those of you who prefer to make a small monthly donation, if 500 people commit to $2 per month on my Patreon page, the cost of a grande coffee at Starbucks, I can continue to grow this project until it becomes self-sustaining.

I welcome all questions, suggestions and comments. Thank you for your interest and your generosity.

What Mike and the Meurer Education Project are doing is truly groundbreaking. With all of the divisive rhetoric we are hearing from some presidential candidates, we, the people, have to speak loudly that we are more interested in working together, not apart. I wish you much success on this project, Mike. We will all benefit from it. 11 months ago

I am so delighted to support because I know how uniquely qualified is Mike Meurer to teach these very popular and meaningful courses in Latin America. His experience is rich as his knowledge. His passion is contagious. .. These classes offer an important opportunity for his students. Surely we can all agree that building of bridges between The Americas is critical! Thank you, Mike, for your talent!! 1 year ago
