Become part of the solution….
Take the challenge! Be part of the solution! Dare to change the world!
It can be done!
“The two defining challenges of our century are climate change and poverty.
And if we fail on one, we will fail on the other” – Lord Nicholas Stern, 2009.
We don’t think governments and the UN can solve these problems, neither can big business. We have to rely on small private initiatives and to work with and for the 1/2 Bn small family farmers in the Tropics; to use the internet to educate and organize and market forces to let the success stories go viral.
Some call it the informal sector, other call it anarchy or holistic approach, we call it the third stream and it is there and successfully operating, but fully unorganized. The Good Goal Group wants to unite these efforts and have worked out a plan to do it.
1) To ensure greater Carbon Storage through tree planting and tree caring.
Increasing the global biomass 1% a year would be enough to compensate for all fossil fuel based emissions – by sequestering carbon in wood and in the ground.
Labeling and registering all trees planted with a Tree Code (linked to maps and a wiki) for monitoring and development.
2) To fight poverty by providing a source of basic income for the poor
By ensuring monthly payments to all participants (tree-planters, tree-carers and monitors) across the globe, for all registered trees; a system called Tree Credits.
TreeCredits would be enabled and implemented on an internet based gamified platform, called The Good Game, where –
Individual Players can volunteer for meaningful Good Causes and learn to plan and organize real projects, build a global social network and have fun at the same time!
Projects can be brainstormed and outlined, crowdfunded and monitored in individual projects forums using our specially designed protocols.
Other Private Development Initiatives can also join to increase their reach and effectiveness.
We would use the ever increasing influence of the internet and benefit from market forces
to fight corruption and maximize impact, creating a sustainable, lasting green revolution!
transform local problems into small enterprises and then realize them online
ask volunteers online to donate time to educate, organize and raise funds
use market forces in the field, together with social control
empower women and girls
use pay on delivery methods
use new monitoring methods
use new evaluation methods
all through gamification
