Give Power are turning saltwater into drinking water

GivePower’s Solar Water Farms are sustainably creating access to clean water in water-scarce regions around the world. In June 2020, GivePower’s Solar Water Farm Max went live in Likoni, Kenya. For the first time, this community has access to clean, healthy water for their families. The Max system can provide access to clean drinking water for up to 35,000 people every single day.

The Peace Building

The Peace Building

A place where we can build a global culture of peace.

The Peace Building is set to be the first ever peace museum and education centre in London. It will be a meeting point where all generations can learn about peace builders through history; share stories of peace movements; and remember the countless victims of conflict. It will be a space where we can start to build a global culture of peace. Together.

There are eight war museum in London. We need a peace museum to provide an alternative discourse and champion the power of peace building.

The Peace Building will inspire and equip people of all ages to act peacefully in all aspects of their lives; from the individual level (fostering inner peace) and our relationships with others – to streets and communities (including the global community). We will work hard to become a centre of excellence in peace education through our learning programmes for schools and colleges – both in the centre and through outreach. The centre will also provide public spaces to reflect, relax and explore… Including a cafe, exhibition space, a reference library, studios, meeting rooms, a space for quiet reflection, and an events space for talks, lectures, conferences and concerts.

The Peaceful Schools

The Peaceful Schools

The Peaceful Schools Movement is a network of schools and organizations putting peace into practice through peace education and the creation of peaceful learning environments. Together we are creating peacebuilders who are bringing peace and harmony to the world.

By peaceful schools we mean peace on four levels: (1) the development of inner peace/peace within each individual within the school, (2) peaceful relationships between pupils, between school staff and between staff and pupils, (3) peaceful ethos/school community and (4) the way the school works for peace in the world. All schools – all phases too i.e. primary and secondary, and special schools of various kinds.

Nordic Solutions to Global Challenges

Nordic Solutions to Global Challenges

”There is group of countries which have done remarkably well in the face of the challenges to our modern, democratic societies… Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden might just hold the clues to solving the security, social, political, environmental and technological threats and challenges of the 21st Century”.

– These are the words of Project Director András Simonyi in the foreword to a book of essays, “Nordic Ways”.

Nordic Solutions to Global Challenges is a joint initiative by the Prime ministers of the Nordic countries. We want to invite the world to share Nordic knowledge and experiences of six priority flagship projects. These Nordic solutions will be effective tools in our common work to reach the United Nations Sustainability Goals before the year 2030.

The Equality Trust – Because more equal societies work better for everyone

The Equality Trust – Because more equal societies work better for everyone

People in more equal societies live longer, have better mental health and have better chances for a good education regardless of their background. Community life is stronger where the income gap is narrower, children do better at school and they are less likely to become teenage parents. When inequality is reduced people trust each other more, there is less violence and rates of imprisonment are lower.

If we want to build a better society, it is essential we take action. The Equality Trust is working with others to build a social movement for change. We analyse and disseminate the latest research, promote robust evidence-based arguments and support a dynamic network of campaign groups across the country.

The School of the New Spirituality

The School of the New Spirituality

The School of the New Spirituality is a non-profit educational organization founded by the author of Conversations with God, Neale Donald Walsch.

Our intention is (1) to share the messages of CwG with like-minded people, (2) create a global community through which parents can derive support and share experiences, (3) increase our children’s understandings of the CwG Core Messages.

We also seek to create a safe space in which older children (“tweens” and teens) may come together to share ideas, ask each other questions, and form a community — all without fear of bullying, mistreatment or discrimination, or any inappropriate interactions.
 
We are an international organization, with members of our Board of Directors being natives of nations around the world, and with our website being visited and its tools and resources being used by people across the globe.

BIEN – Basic Income Earth Network

BIEN – Basic Income Earth Network

A basic income is a periodic cash payment unconditionally delivered to all on an individual basis, without means-test or work requirement.

That is, a basic income has the five following characteristics:

  1. Periodic: it is paid at regular intervals (for example every month), not as a one-off grant.
  2. Cash payment: it is paid in an appropriate medium of exchange, allowing those who receive it to decide what they spend it on. It is not, therefore, paid either in kind (such as food or services) or in vouchers dedicated to a specific use.
  3. Individual: it is paid on an individual basis—and not, for instance, to households.
  4. Universal: it is paid to all, without means test.
  5. Unconditional: it is paid without a requirement to work or to demonstrate willingness-to-work.
    A wide variety of Basic Income proposals are circulating today. They differ along many other dimensions, including in the amounts of the Basic Income, the source of funding, the nature and size of reductions in other transfers that might accompany it, and so on.

Although BIEN has not endorsed any particular proposal, and it is open to people who favor very different proposals, BIEN’s 2016 General Assembly endorsed a very broad description of a proposal in the following resolution:

A majority of members attending BIEN’s General Assembly meeting in Seoul on July 9, 2016, agreed to support Basic Income that is stable in size and frequency and high enough to be, in combination with other social services, part of a policy strategy to eliminate material poverty and enable the social and cultural participation of every individual. We oppose the replacement of social services or entitlements, if that replacement worsens the situation of relatively disadvantaged, vulnerable, or lower-income people…
