What to do and what NOT to do

HOW TO GET INVOLVED?

Guidelines For ONE SMALL TOWN Supporters

From Michael Tellinger

 

IMPORTANT:

  1. Please note that we have a very strict protocol about the implementation of the ONE SMALL TOWN strategy.

  2. It takes a lot of training and planning before the launch can take place.

  3. We appoint official ONE SMALL TOWN Ambassadors in the countries of activity and engagement.

  4. There are very strict steps to follow - from engaging with the mayors, community, funding, etc.

  5. We have a team of about 30 people working on this daily.

  6. Unless you join our team and work with me and the team, step by step to implement ONE SMALL TOWN, we cannot support your independent activity or be associated in any way.

  7. There are 4 ways to get involved. Please read ALL the information on this page and follow the instructions carefully, or for quick access, clink on the links directly below:

Engineers at work

I get many emails every week from very excited people who want to take action, and do something about ONE SMALL TOWN. They all want to know: What can I do? How can I help? Can we bring this to my town? And many more enthusiastic questions. 

They want to rush off to the Mayor; set up a town meeting; place ads in papers; go on the radio to tell everyone about OST, and so on. They are hyped up and ready to go. All of this is really encouraging and it will happen – BUT before it does, there are several things that need to happen first.

It’s impossible for me to respond personally to hundreds of people every week, wanting to know what to do, about implementing ONE SMALL TOWN. I can only get involved once there is a clear indication from a Mayor, or Community Leader with a keen interest to implement ONE SMALL TOWN.  Once that happens, things will start moving at a steady pace.  

IMPORTANT: I expect all UBUNTU members and promoters to always be well informed and ready to answer questions from those they engage with. The more you know, the better you can explain the OST plan to others.

Please DO NOT call your Mayor, or set up a meeting or make contact with the media, or the Mayor, or any council members, about the ONE SMALL TOWN plan – until you have been in touch with your local OST Ambassador or Michael Tellinger. We will work with you to develop a strategy to approach your Mayor or Councilor or Community Leader.

become a patron

One Small Town supporters underestimate how much they are contributing by becoming a patron. This helps our team bring OST to the world quicker and more efficiently. If we cannot utilize your skills, becoming a patron is by far one of the best ways to contribute and make a big difference.

submit a business plan

Every town is unique, with its own business opportunities, characteristics and situations. It is imperative that we have as many viable, fully completed business plans for as many different types of businesses as possible at the ready. The business plans are integral to the attraction of conscious investors. If you already have a completed business plan for any business and want to make a big contribution, please sign up and upload your business plan.

tell us about your skills

Complete the form and tell us about your skills and abilities. This is a very important step, as we are often in need of very specific skill sets in specific industries and locations. If your details match our needs, we will contact you and arrange the next steps. If we cannot use your skills immediately, we keep the information to inform you when we can. In the meantime, grow your communities, spread the awareness, or become a patron to help us get there faster.

sign up as an organic farmer

The One Small Town initiative will focus on clean, organically grown food, free from genetically modified organisms and following sustainable practices. If you are an organic farmer and want to make a positive difference in our food supply chain, join us by signing up.
