Mobility for us all : towards a new reality
MobiUs Foundation envisions a 'We'-orientated society, embracing and supporting all children, fully appreciating and stimulating the different ways of being, allowing for each and every child to pursue its own personal destiny in life, hence contributing its own unique qualities.
Social mobility in multi-ethnic neighbourhoods in many European cities is limited. A lot of issues stem from insecure attachment and/or inherited trauma during childhood, which affects the development of entire communities. At the same time, due to their backgrounds, these children harbour a tremendous creative and bridging potential vital for finding new answers to current and future societal challenges.
MobiUs Foundation aims to enable a new reality, in which the innate potential in multi-ethnic neighbourhoods is unleashed. We are both catalyst and enabler in shaping supportive circumstances and finding new ways leading to trend reversal, increased community resilience and a basis for self-perpetuating support and movement.
Catalyst and enabler
Unleashing innate potential in multi-ethnic neighbourhoods implies room for a continuous process of gaining (and deepening) trust, building relationships and facilitating explorations. This calls for safe spaces and generative governance from which caring, hence self-supporting, communities can gradually develop. MobiUs Foundation aims to catalyse and enable this process from a philosphy of 'getting things done and learn'.
Our focus on community resilience and self perpetuating movement implies that MobiUs Foundation:
shapes enabling conditions;
faciltates an open learning climate
