Mac Macartney, speaker and change maker
BrightSky is a bridge between those in need and those who can offer support, between community and ethical business, between alternative health and modern medicine and ultimately between dreams and reality.
We boldly set out to become a Global Community Platform, a gathering place for heart-centred tribes, communities, individuals and organisations.
We aim to setup at least 421 Local BrightSky Hubs, in the UK, at least 1 in each of the 421 UK Councils. We will soon launch BrightSky in Holland followed by Germany and the rest of the world.
Each country will be co-owned and run by 108 Partners whom together with the Founding Members form the Founders of BrightSky in their country.
This will grow into a Global Mycelium Network connecting local communities all over the world, starting in the UK.
We have pledged to dedicate 50% of all profit to be reinvested in local community projects. We initiate our own projects and support already existing projects aligned with our ethos, including tree planting and re-wilding.
BrightSky grew from a desire to help health and wellbeing practitioners who are struggling to sustain businesses whilst staying true to their callings. We noticed isolation and duplicated efforts and we started to imagine how an online platform could help.
Our vision grew alongside the rapidly expanding team of Founding Partners and Investors in 2019, who shared the conviction that it is empowered and re-connected communities who can best bring the shifts that are needed. BrightSky in 2020 includes a wide field of locally-rooted projects, Hubs and networks.
At BrightSky we feel we are co-creating with Spirit and co-creating with the wider community. Your voice, your heart, your ideas and your reflections are always welcome!
Whilst our vision is global, our missions are local:
The BrightSky Team grew from a base in South Devon, with strong networks in Bristol, London, Manchester, Stroud and Frome. We are growing from heart to heart like a garden, organically and from the ground up, honouring the principles of Permaculture.
We are a Community that offers many opportunities for its Members to get involved. Collectively we will shape the evolution and further development of BrightSky Community.
If you like to get involved and are passionate about one or more of the following topics let us know and we can explore how you can get practically involved.
· Community Building
· Content development
· Facilitating BrightSky Hub meetings
· Events creation and facilitation
· Fundraising/ Bid Development
Working in Partnership
At BrightSky we are creating a mycelium network of support with organisations and individuals coming together, in person, using the resources BrightSky makes available. We aim to have representatives on the ground in the 421 councils across Britain, with BrightSky Hubs supporting local initiatives all over the country. We will work in partnership with these local networks, supporting their growth and helping them to flourish. If you are working on a particular project that could use our support, please get in touch. If you have a project and would love to explore a Working in Partnership with us let us know. We would love to hear from you!
