The global smartphone video challenge project, Earthbeat, received 77 entries from 31 countries around the world. The video challenge was shown during the climate conference at COP26. It revealed the local effects of the mining industries and industrialized agricultural on the habitat of indiginous people. Changes in their ecosystem, floods, disrupted food chains, pollution that kills food resources, expropriation of their lands, expelling people, unjust land ownership, criminality etc are all crimes against humanity and our planet. It is not just these minorities that suffer. They are a prelude of the problems that spread as a blanket of destruction across the entire world. The question arises: Who is to blame? The miners or farmers? The capitalist greed behind it all? Or is the modern western “consume it all” addictive culture? Is the politics to blame that supports this all out of electorial self interest?
We can only conclude that we are all to blame. Our consumerism feeds the capitalists that just want more and take the resoures where they can find them. Our politicians depend on the taxable money streams to finance the status quo. It is a spiral of greed and destruction that somehow needs to be stopped. In the end it is nature itself that probably pulls out the plug. Humankind seems to have wrapped itself into this spiral without escape other than self destruction. Have a look at some of these short locals Earthbeat reports made by local with their smartphones…
Our Cheryl Melody Baskin from the USA, speaking and singing about the importance of water as our core human value
Peru is having a great issue with drinking water. Long spells of drought produce a severe water shortage. Sudden spells of excessive rain destroy productive agricultural grounds causing food shortages. How do we solve this? How can Peru adjust to this urgent and dramatic situation? Some people believe that the solution needs to be found in Sustainocratic cooperative thinking and handling. In Sustainocracy water is a core human condition for sustainable progress and shared responsibility, not an economic or political power game or means.
Crowdfunding is needed to independently research the current status in Peru as well as the measures taken by local governance. We need to educate the local stakeholders on the innovative value of sustainocratic engagement and establish the first local and international multidisciplinary team (government, innovative entrepreneurs, citizen’s engagement and scientific expertise) for accountability and cocreation of the higher purpose of integral water resilience and wellness. The group will the define together the priorities in steps to be taken. Once that is done projects can be defined that get access to regular and large funds but this first analytical step needs to funded seperately.
The money will be used for travel and lodging expenses in Peru, making local presentationd and effort needed to contact and gather all necessary information and stakeholders objectively to create the first Sustainocratic table for water resilience. Project leader in STIR City of Tomorrow is Peruvian PhD student Edwin Rodriguez. He is preprint his own letter to you on which he explains the situation and his motivation to you.
