PROJECTS :

LET’SUNITE.ONLINE  :  (Before we have a dream too.com)
A global online movement about the worldwide broadly supported dream for a sustainable planet where welfare and chances are accessible for all.  The Change: A global movement for all people longing for a fair system on a healthy planet.

This is an initiative KC started in 2012, grabbing some ideas and daydreaming a bit how to get to a nicer world, inspired by the Dalai Lama, who visited Amsterdam, waiting for optimal flow. The idea grow to work on a new dream, after Martin Luther King who beat racism for a big part, to beat poverty for a big part. KC would love to fight injustice in a wider range, beating poverty and injustice.

In 2017, KC, together with one of his best friends, Tijn Touber, continued this initiative with a wider focus to try to put environment central above economy and work on a fair world, without poverty. In 2019 things are getting clearer, Robbert Zoon involved and our team met, got inspired by Mark Woerden (Havas Lemz), who together with the organisation Lets Heal, got a United Nation award (Global Business & Interfaith Peace Medal) for bringing 22 religious world leaders together in a video message about friendship and Bright Vibes, another organisation stimulating and communicating inspiring new initiatives like ours.
We feel more and more this is the time and our initiative needs to become a movement for all the people who are hoping we get a fair, new system. For all so we wait until Africa is 3G connected too.
Some “dreamers”, like Greta Thunberg from Sweden ; striking for a heathy environment, many celebrities, but also you and KC, all of us can soon share (y)our ideas / dreams, on our site, to inspire.
We, as Let’s Unite, don’t want to give the real solutions but just communicate our ideas, our dreams.
We are open for any road to a new way of living, being and sharing, to enjoy life better together by them who can make the difference.
We invite them ( the 50 most rich people in the world ) to become the heroes of the planet. They can do it, in a way it’s better for everybody, also for themselves, even they will need to invest some time and money in the beginning of the project. In the end it’s better for all, also for them and their kids.
So, all people who hope for a change can join us as the number of how many hope, just hope for a nicer world, what’s probably 99% of us.
You might understand that in this way we feel we are able to create the most impressive network ever if the marketing is good, to inspire all decision makers, politicians, because we have no other agenda but helping, sharing, growing. We don’t abuse the amount of people in influence or data. We just want to help, together with you we can !
One Love

MIND THE WORLD
An online concept about fair brands  and good news .

1. An initiative KC started with Tijn Touber and Robbert Zoon around 2010 about creating a new hype of branding out of fair trade brands.We inspired more organisations which are working now professional on ideas like this in many ways and feel the start and the level where we went was good enough to inspire initiatives happening now like inspiring news organisations like on radio sublime, fair brand organisations like “rank a brand” etc.
The basic idea is to share as much of info about brands by a dynamic ranking in brands, out of 100 questions and answers about taking responsibility to the environment and labour. We make this transparant in a ranking, via a schedule by choice: 100% labour, 100% environment or 50/50 labour and environment about most respectful brands.

2. Links to CNN and all other publishers of news to convince them inspiring, good news got it’s value too and is ready to read for many, so selling, as well as all the negative bad news they distribute.

Tijn Touber, author in the spiritual field, and Robbert Zoon, who already is experienced in good news marketing joined KC during some time, building this website. At the moment we’re online to inspire and are waiting for the next steps, in the flow.

BEACH CLUB  GANPATI ; SPIRITUAL CENTRE ON THE DUTCH BEACH 
Casey participated 2 years for 50% in Beach Club Ganpati, a good karma spiritual centre on the beach with healings, meditation, yoga, divers massages, tai chi, biodanza, ayurveda, raw & vegetarian food, smoke-free terrace places, barefoot dance parties, djembe classes, campfire etc. Everything on a beautiful location, away from the crowd, nude bathing allowed and a permission for a container sauna, all near the Waterleidingduinen, the dunes, where deer and foxes walk free along the sea, in the wild. Casey didn’t;t do any field work but did the communication by newsletters, to supply his partner, less strong is this field but a star in hospitality , and Casey did the content of the website, changed things via concept thinking, arranged the contracts and managed the insurances, created a committed network, did the interior partly via participating of a selection by BeBoB Design, selected the massage, healing, meditation, big parties f.i. with Natarsj and all kind of reading and teams. The organising thing maybe cased the break between his partner and him, because most of the initiatives became more and more reflected with Casey and his partner and his father called the partner the worker, while they were painting the club, and called Casey the nice gentleman not cooperating in the painting or physical jobs on the working floor. … even the roles were talked over and over for long time before the partnership started, as Casey knew this would be the roles for each of them.
The partner agreed because to create  a spiritual related version of Woodstock69, more pure, no booze, no meat, smoking free terraces, meditation and workshop places in combination with massages etc. was the challenge. The only point was the partner of Casey was struggling with eating meat, drinking booze, smoking … what made him a less pure partner as Casey, in which he was a bit frustrated.
The beautiful location was also the place, where Amsterdam gets it’s water from and where Casey close by got a house where his family a year round and he, himself lived for a few months a year. A very clean, quiet area ij the beautiful dunes without industry, pollution, any traffic, even no bikes, no horses, no dogs allowed but lots of deer, foxes, rabbits, aurochs, etc.
It was a beautiful, but short dream, stopped by a, maybe unnecessary, move of Casey’s partner, who, even Casey tried many times, still is not able to reflect the whole story together, maybe to keep his, by his mind changed, own story alive. This even while Casey is ready to forgive and don’t claim a penny of the, about 120.000 euro, Casey invested in a dream, which got frustrated by his partner via a bankrupt for very little money, what Casey easily could have changed, but for what the partner chose not to mention until the fact was there… Casey even tried to change it to keep the holy place for the beautiful network but it didn’t work because of the choices and attitude and hidden constructions in the contracts… Still Casey is happy and feels blessed he was able to be able to join this dream and to meet beautiful souls over there. Casey reflected and can understand this happened also out of his presence, his personality and his charisma, what caused him more often troubles in partnerships in his life. It’s all about lessons and being able to grow, what is always part of the sentiment and a beautiful path, full of adventure, as he said. Take the lessons and keep on going, in trust !

BROWN PUB : DE TEMPELIER ; Today De Huiskamer Haven 21 Breda
This was the first long term different concept Casey started. A “brown” café” = Cozy Pub in Breda. The concept; soft lounge music and talking with your friends untill it got crowded. Once it got crowded the music changed and got turned up, the tables against the walls and chairs got upside down under and behind the tables, lamps high and it was time to party !! We got a political engagement, sold Guatamala fair trade coffee, supported small scale left wing projects and were the meeting point for demonstrations against nucleair power etc. The last song was always a socialistic song, where clients, Casey and who ever wanted jumped on the tables or the bar to sing the socialistic song, with the left fist in the air. But we didn’t fit in any box because we were also the meeting point for football games of N.A.C, the football pride of Breda. One thing all the visitors had in common; Drinking like a Tempelier. We  got the highest beer supply a square meter pub in the whole city !

FUNK-O-THEEK EXQ’S ; Today Dok 19 Haven 19 Breda 
A funk playing disc-o-theek in Breda. This was a place, where we created an interior together with the students of art school St. Joost in Breda, and yearly we face-lifted this place. We changed it, even as a winning horse, completely. Art students identified themselves with this project and the right dj’s made it happen that we got more and more famous because of playing the right music, ahead of mainstream. They played f.i. Prince long time before he got famous.
