2017 End of Year Message - From Michael Tellinger

Please view a short video message to wind up 2017 and lay an exciting foundation for 2018.

2017 was truly an unimaginable year of expansion and growth on so many levels, especially for the UBUNTU Movement. 
I need to thank all the UBUNTU coordinators and activators who have been working behind the scenes, on the core management teams, in their own communities, and in other ways in their own time, to spread the UBUNTU message. You have my deep gratitude for your ongoing support and contribution.
I will be sharing a series of videos and messages in the days to come, which will outline our our new focused plan of action for 2018.
We have walked an amazing long and winding road since 2005, when the Contributionism idea was first born and quickly evolved into the UBUNTU Movement. But until now we were mostly just another movement with a great philosophy, but the strategy of what to do and how to achieve our goals has been evolving all this time.
The rapid success of our ONE SMALL TOWN strategy in 2017 has laid the foundation for a clear focused plan of action for 2018.
In the days to come, I will be sharing more specific details of our plan, and how to take this forward in a structured way.
The one thing we must guard against is enthused people running off in all directions, speaking to mayors and possibly misrepresenting our plan, because they do not know enough about the details.
We are creating a series of written material, videos, training, and more for all those who want to participate in spreading the message on a more active level. This will also give our National Coordinators and the UBUNTU Core Management teams a clear guideline of how to manage the growth of UBUNTU in their countries and local areas. I also need to find a way to work closer with the coordinators of the different countries.
I look forward with great excitement to how 2018 will unfold.
In unity & resonance
Michael Tellinger
Founder of the UBUNTU Movement
