Why Join the GAIA Fan Club

Greta Thunberg | TEDxStockholm | November 2018

In this passionate call to action, 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg explains why, in August 2018, she walked out of school and organized a strike to raise awareness of global warming, protesting outside the Swedish parliament and grabbing the world's attention. "The climate crisis has already been solved. We already have all the facts and solutions," Thunberg says. "All we have to do is to wake up and change." The talk was presented to a local audience at TEDxStockholm, an independent event. TED's editors chose to feature it.

Greta's talk was posted on YouTube February 13, 2019. I found it later during the year. Habitat for Health's first Blog post was published November 19, 2019. Habitat for Health Blog opened January 3, 2020. The World Health Organization declared the outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern in January 2020 and a pandemic in March 2020.

Summary of the H4H Apiary Project

Habitat for Health is rolling out a new economic model this year to develop and test new ways forward. The GAIA First© Economics plan first appeared in the 2020 GAIA Fan Club Ezine. Today the Habitat for Health Blog continues operation as a research, publishing and consulting platform.

The Home site continues to operate like a digital property management firm online. The Apiary Project introduced on January 1, 2021 is now underway. The goal this year is to finance a bottom up 21st Century response to climate change. You're invited to join the GAIA Fan Club.

The 3 most urgent world wide tasks needing correction now are:
  1. climate change,
  2. COVID-19, and
  3. the stalled financial crisis.

Damage from climate crisis like floods, forest fires, and tornadoes happens. When they do, ways to fund repair become a priority. Climate crisis is a very real and present danger. It's because storms are becoming more frequent, more severe and more complicated.

Key Takeaways:

The Apiary Project is preparing a new economic approach:
  • Engage more people in more ways to stimulate economic growth in market economies.
  • If we truly want a more equitable, more prosperous and more sustainable economy, if we want high-functioning democracies and civil society, we must have a new economics.
  • The the good news is, if we want new economic outcomes, all we have to do is choose to have it.

Nonprofit and not-for-profit are terms that are used similarly, but do not mean the same thing. Both are organizations that do not make a profit, but may receive an income to sustain their missions. The income that nonprofit and not-for-profit organizations generate is used differently.

Nonprofit organizations return any extra income to the organization. Not-for-profits use their excess money to pay their members who do work for them. Another difference between nonprofit organizations and not-for-profit organizations is their membership.

Nonprofits have volunteers or employees who do not receive any money from the organization's fundraising efforts. They may earn a salary for their work that is independent from the money the organization has fundraised. Not-for-profit members have the opportunity to benefit from the organization's fundraising efforts.

Membership dues start at less than $1-a-day ($30.00/mo.) making entry to learn, earn, save and redeem credits via the Start From Scratch program. Membership upgrades are based on project specifications, time, skill and funds needed or raised.
