"The Commodity Ecology Mobile (CEM) platform is an online platform to enfranchise the world in its own sustainable development. This is a review of the three main design decisions in this platform to reach cheaply and durably all people, all regions, and all material uses to aid a clean circular economy. Respectively, it does this by creating a long-term civic deliberation space taking advantage of the existing network value of over 5 billion mobile phones, by using 867 ecoregions as a global yet detailed geographic space in which to debate and build such regional sustainable development, and by using the Commodity Ecology model which is the most detailed framework of a circular economy with 130 different social uses of materials. The platform is recognized by the United Nations Academic Impact Office (UNAI) as a good way to achieve Sustainable Development Goal #12 (Encourage Sustainable Production and Consumption). The 17 SDGs will not be achieved by 2030 without a world strategy to enfranchise billions in their own development. Mobile-accessible platforms and virtual communities can build real geographic community participation toward sustainable goals worldwide. Moreover, a strategy to achieve SDG#12 first uniquely catalyzes action on all other SDG goals."
