How we Tackle Poverty, Climate Change and Circular Economy
The Targets to end extreme poverty by 2015 were agreed as the UN set new goals for 2030. However as the population of the world continues to grow unchecked, we all know that poverty is still going to exist and more than ever, we are all urgently called to engage more in the Planets Problems. More recent times have seen new Targets being set for the UK, with a Net Zero Carbon emissions for the UK for 2050. However more local authorities are signing up to this target for 2030, given the recent Extinction Rebellion protests, that we need to act NOW.
We need to engage EVERYONE, rich or poor as only a partnership approach is going to get us there. Knowing and agreeing with that, we must accept that there will always be those with more finance and material possessions. However we believe that a Transition is required with citizens, their communities and businesses working together and we’ve been saying it for almost 7 years now.
Our Innovative Approach to quickly engage every citizen is one of using our Independent Appliance Safety Register which presents the opportunity for engagement to every citizen who owns a Large Domestic Appliance. Such a model not only helps prevent Fires (60 per week) and Risks of fires from Recall Products (a BEIS and OPPS solution) it has the potential to bring everyone quickly, into a Rewards based model that assist in transitioning and providing evidence of the reduction of Carbon Emmissions, to help meet Planetary Climate challenges people and Government are now looking to attain.
Recognising this and the need to engage ALL of society, we have planned and are developing a local and global currency known as the EEECoin. (Environment, Employment, Economy) that would not be subject to the gains and losses of any Crypto Currency, but instead be one that we can gift in our new Charitable Award Winning Model. We will donate Regular Cash Pots from the sales of each Communities’ own Online Local Shop. From the money, we will create the Currency and initially work with Volunteer organisations, to utilise the rewards offered by the local businesses. This will come from our Biz Directory, and these businesses when selling their products and services through the local shop, will also be attributed for contributing the Cash and the Currency. Consumers where they live, will see who are helping the local people and groups.
Local use of this Currency can facilitate trading between C2C, B2C and B2B, with incentives to prevent more waste and effect more repair at a local level, starting first with our own Regulatory approach to a Large Appliance Repair Standard and Qualification. We see this expanding to a Network of UK Community Repairers working in their neighbourhoods linked to our Training. Lowering the need to operate a Shop but instead being independently regulated by EEESafe to a safer standard, delivering lower cost repairs and possibly fulfilling all Manufactures repair work, lessening harmful environmental impact and delivering real metrics with sustainable, volunteering and poverty positive outcomes.
Why wait for someone else to act. We as consumers are the ones who can achieve this together. We have 20 more Apps that use the Currency enabling us to changing the world, One Community at a Time.
