Financing life after and during coronacrisis

While talking about the myriad of projects existing in the world already causing a positive spin in the lives of people and communities, the recurring theme of financing pops-up along with the expected skeptical view on these crazy sounding proposals (even during these crazy times!).

Here is a video, in which I attempt to shed some light on the topic of financing the world we were born to live in. It is currently a private link, since I have not finished listing all the projects, from which I crowdsourced it 🙂 And it is Part 3, because it was supposed to be the ending of a more than 1 hour 30 minute video compilation. I hope all that makes sense to you as it did in my head.

But since the urge of clarity on economy for life after – and during – the corona crisis cannot really wait, here it goes… https://vimeo.com/426661592/6f6f146661

Cultivating Environments Full of Taste and Health

Make food tasty & nutritious again by growing its full potential in thriving environments.

“It is entirely possible that we could eat an amazing 300,000 plant species. However, the reality is that we only consume a tiny fraction of what is possible. Homo sapiens, which is the most cosmopolitan of all species and one that thrives by virtue of being a supreme generalist, survives, by routinely eating only about 200 plant species. Amazingly more than half of the calories and the proteins that we derive from plants are provided by just three crops: maize, rice, and wheat.”

Bees, Air Pollution and Environmental Day Actions

https://image.spreadshirtmedia.com/image-server/v1/compositions/13261656T842A2PC115119705PA1776PT17X34Y0S49/views/1,width=300,height=300,appearanceId=2,version=1440417743/bee-with-gas-mask-t-shirts-tote-bag.jpg

After one of the most terrible weeks of Air Pollution in Mexico City’s (YES! We are in Mexico) history, it is time to celebrate #WorldBeeDay today.

What is the link between air pollution and bees? (You might be wondering)

Let’s talk first about bees…

In order to produce 1 pound of honey, 2 million flowers must be visited. A hive of bees must fly 55,000 miles to produce a pound of honey. One bee colony can produce 60 to 100 pounds of honey per year. An average worker bee makes only about 1/12 teaspoon of honey in its lifetime.

As you might have noticed, the last piece of information comes from a honey company. I would dare to say that companies like this one are the most interested in taking actions to keeping bees alive. But for opposite reasons to those of vegans. (Read The honey industry)

Now, talking about air pollution. It’s consequences are not exclusive for humans. Air pollution is also thought to be affecting bees. Preliminary research shows that air pollutants interact with scent molecules released by plants which bees need to locate food. The mixed signals interfere with the bees ability to forage, making them slower and less effective at pollination.

According to the UN, here is how you can help taking action to #BeatAirPollution.

Decide what action you are going to take to #BeatAirPollution

Here are some examples:

  • Use public transport or car sharing, cycle or walk
  • Switch to a hybrid or electric vehicle and request electric taxis
  • Turn off the car engine when stationary
  • Reduce your consumption of meat and dairy to help cut methane emissions
  • Compost organic food items and recycle non-organic trash
  • Switch to high-efficiency home heating systems and equipment
  • Save energy: turn off lights and electronics when not in use 
  • Choose non-toxic paints and furnishings

I would add that rather than just reducing your meat and dairy consumption, planning to gradually eliminate them while replacing that void with the best locally sourced and toxin-free produce (vegetables, grains and fruits) would be most beneficial to all life on Earth.  

Have a look at the Food Target PDF for more info on how this can help you, other animals and the whole planet.

ON A FINAL NOTE: If you are into observing international celebrations, you’ll also want to pay attention to this date coming up soon:

Air pollution is the theme for World Environment Day on 5 June 2019. The quality of the air we breathe depends on the lifestyle choices we make every day. Learn more about how air pollution affects you, and what is being done to clean the air. What are you doing to reduce your emissions footprint and #BeatAirPollution?

Guiding Star and Near Star in Systems Thinking

For the next module of Designing for Environmental Sustainability and Social Impact, – the free +Acumen course we are taking – The Noble Peace Tribe went deep into Systems Thinking. Way deep!

The good news is that we resurfaced with clarity on, among other things, both our guiding star (vision) and near stars (5-10 year goals):

Guiding star (vision)

A humane global system change that transcends war to 
peace, exploitation to cooperation and fear to trust*

(* Read more on this here:
LASTING PEACE AND FUNCTIONING COMMUNITIES)

We used a feedback loop approach to visualize our guiding star and got a vicious cycle about the currently ending global system, and a virtuous cycle about the humane global system change. Here, have a look at both and give us your feedback… loop (no, sorry, just your feedback):

Experimental Peace Research and Learning Centers Post

So it happens, a few weeks ago Sylvie enrolled us both in a free course offered by +Acumen called Designing for Environmental Sustainability and Social Impact, recommended by one of her closest friends. We are using this online learning experience as a means to get more structure in developing Experimental Peace Research and Learning Centers(1).

We are excited about the possibilities to find the best way to frame our projects using the concepts we are meant to learn the following 6 weeks of duration of this course.

Where would I like this story to go next

How to put into words what I would like to see next after this 1 year journey around Ecuador… without sounding self absorbed about it?

Tomorrow will be the 22 of January, and it will officially mark the 1 year anniversary since Sylvie and I landed in Ecuador to start our brand new life living in a Raw Vegan Edible Fruit Forest Community. To read more on that go to this other post: Moving countries to live in a Raw Vegan Fruit Forest Community in the Ecuadorian Amazon did not work out 1 year ago. What has happened since?

So here it goes, I’ll just spill my Mexican beans out for the universe and you to know what is going on in my highly active inner world: I would like this story to go next to the creation of Experimental Peace Research & Learning Centers.

To be continued…
