Visionary Society is meant to grow naturally by those who have a special interest in any aspect of it, and would like to help develop that part in their community.

Please enter your location and explain what your interest in Visionary Society is and what role you'd like to take. We'll review this and start taking steps to making your community more Visionary!

How it works
 
Some of the material on this page is based on previous versions of Visionary Society. We are updating it as we go along. In the meantime you should be able to use the help on active pages for whatever you need.


What is an Opportunity?
What do you want to share with or see in your community?

What do you care about, are concerned with, need help with or want to help? What can you offer to the public, something to teach, to contribute, to respond to? What do you need help with, something to address a practical or long-term problem?

Opportunities is a new forum for personal community engagement. We can share what is important to us with each other. We can show that sensitivity is possible, that money and success are not everything. Who can use this? Individuals, informal groups, businesses – anyone who is doing good in the community and wants to show that making the world better is an option. Let us break down the barriers that keep us involved in a “marketplace” of anonymous, impersonal, self-interested individuals.
 
How do Opportunities work?
Choose the options you need to create the experience you want. You may ask for support or up/down voting, schedule a meeting (and ask for RSVP), raise funds, or allow comments.

Tell a story
Want help improving a business or organization, or any Visionary Society content? Visit the page and add the opportunity there.
Anything else

Guidelines:
►   The opportunity should mainly serve others (rather than a personal or business interest).
►   It should be beneficial to others, by providing a practical or lasting benefit.
 
Examples
What interests, skills or insights (and other resources) can you offer or share with the community? Possibilities:

– Tell a story about something you care about.
– Do you have a specific skill, such as crafts, art, construction, cooking, life coaching, financial guidance?

Ask for any kind of help that you need. Ask for support, publicize a meeting, raise funds, or anything you can think of. Possibilities:
– Ask community members to help with a cause.
– Ask for volunteers.
– Abandoned kitten needs a home.
– Someone is alone, abandoned, depressed, addicted, or imprisoned, and needs help
