My Manifesto


Blog Me Roselle is a wordpress website sharing the journey of an individual pursuing a MA in Design Management and Cultures


“Looking into manifestos made by important influential people in history for example Dr. Martin Luther King “I have a dream”, Jon Lennon: Imagine, The green living manifesto and Marvin Gaye: What’s Going On. There are countless more manifestos I totally agree with and support and in my own manifesto I touched upon issues that are close to me things that are going on around us everyday and changes that needs to be made.”


My visions for the future are:

  • Stop knife crime and start investing more into our young people. We need to find out what the problems are and why they want to kill each other. Find something constructive for these kids to do.
  • Look into the police force in great detail. We need to put a stop to the issue of drugs and guns. Investigate why the guns and drugs seized on the streets by police are then later put back onto the streets. This needs to be investigated and stopped.
  • I want all the rich people making a lot of money to be taxed more then the average person and have a system in place that they cannot move money out of the country without paying tax on it. The tax money taken from the rich must be put back into things like the NHS and community funding.
  • My vision is to turn every country in the world a green eco friendly land with everything renewable energy. But to be realistic I will start with the UK. The government needs to give everyone access to solar panels not just aimed at home owners give everyone who lives in council properties an opportunity to have one.
  • I would like to see every house, flats and business to have a compost machine installed on there grounds, so all food wastes can be disposed off and then applied to all green areas and used to grow organic foods. I want everyone to be involved in.
  • I want people working together as a community to help their neighbours, clean the streets and take control of today’s young people and mentor them to be better and do better and think about community.
  • I would like the school systems to involve the parents more on the subjects that being taught to our kids. I believe equality for all but I don’t agree with a school teaching my child about issues they don’t know about and as a parent I believe that I am the one to teach my child about transgender, same sex parenting and Homosexuality.
  • I believe that we all can be part of a better, fear and just world if we work together. Work together to stop wars people killing other humans for profit and for politics. Destroy all guns and make politicians, heads of states listen to the people and make the changes that fit every ones needs. I want every country in the world to become green and use renewable technologies in all aspects of their architecture landscape. Combat pollution and reverse climate change.



Most personal manifesto are – as you’d probably expect by the word ‘personal’ – all about what the creator wants or intends to have happen in their lifetime.

I really like this alternative approach. It’s a personal manifesto but the eight visions here are not about the individual.

Instead, they are social outcomes. They’re a worldview. They’re saying I want to live in a world that looks, feels and behaves like this.

The power of this approach shows itself when you share your vision with others. If it’s all about me, then people will likely respond personally too.

In contrast, if you’re sharing about how you would like the world to be, then a richer and deeper conversation may result. It might even lead to ‘yes, I want that too’ and ultimately, ‘let’s work on that together’.

This is how world’s change. It all starts with an individual stating their intention. And if enough people come together to make it happen, then a new reality is lived.


Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie – We are the world – the world coming together to raise money to help starving people in Africa

Quigley and Baghaic – As One Manifesto – a manifesto for transforming individual action into collective action

John Farnham – You’re the voice – a song about standing up to make your family and the world work a little better

    Geoff, I’ve just looked through this Manifesto and I have a question. Do you recall my original rant “I have a dream” blatantly borrowed from MLKJr? I’m thinking it’s my personal manifesto and that it complements my business Manifesto. Thoughts? I’d be happy to play with that one too.
    Thanks for featuring my P2P Manifesto.

    1. I think that’s a good way to go for most people Suzanne – having a personal manifesto to inspire you generally and a business one to focus there. In particular, given your topic on Purpose, it would make sense that you would have your own purpose statement.
