    Initiative
    active 2 years, 10 months ago

    Imagine your asthmatic sister could do a follow up of her condition on her smartphone. Imagine this breathing device would be available at minimal cost everywhere – some countries do not even have his medical equipment for their hospitals.

    Do you know about electronics, physics, algorithms, health compliance, community building ? Join us in this workshop to collaboratively produce a free/libre and open source device to assess lung capacity functions. The device will be tested by Sainte-Justine university hospital as part of the Breathing Games initiative (www.breathinggames.net). Contributions will be logged in our system to enable a redistribution of the raised funds.

    The World Council of Churches (WCC) is the broadest and most inclusive among the many organized expressions of the modern ecumenical movement, a movement whose goal is Christian unity.

    The WCC brings together churches, denominations and church fellowships in more than 110 countries and territories throughout the world, representing over 500 million Christians and including most of the world’s Orthodox churches, scores of Anglican, Baptist, Lutheran, Methodist and Reformed churches, as well as many United and Independent churches.

    For its member churches, the WCC is a unique space: one in which they can reflect, speak, act, worship and work together, challenge and support each other, share and debate with each other. As members of this fellowship, WCC member churches:

    are called to the goal of visible unity in one faith and one eucharistic fellowship;
    promote their common witness in work for mission and evangelism;
    engage in Christian service by serving human need, breaking down barriers between people, seeking justice and peace, and upholding the integrity of creation; and

  • Group logo of Mouvement pour le Paradisme / Movement for Paradism
    Organization
    active 2 years, 11 months ago

    Le paradisme est une nouvelle organisation de la société pour libérer les humains du travail obligatoire et de l’argent en utilisant les progrès de la science et de la technologie.

    Grâce à la grande liberté que nous donne la science, la progression technologique exponentielle en robotique, ordinateurs, intelligence artificielle, nanotechnologies, etc… il est possible de créer une société juste où les richesses sont réparties entre tous les citoyens, et les machines mises au travail pour satisfaire les besoins de tous, au lieu de ne profiter qu’à un petit nombre, comme c’est maintenant le cas. Partout dans le monde des gens se lèvent pour dénoncer les abus et la manipulation des dirigeants. Le Paradisme suggère d’enlever le pouvoir aux gouvernements et les remplacer par des collèges de guidance et des comités connexes au service des citoyens dans leur ensemble.

    Les valeurs que les nouvelles générations proposent ressemblent au Paradisme :
    1. Libérer les humains du travail obligatoire.
    2. Éliminer l’argent.
    3. Donner la priorité aux recherches scientifiques.
    4. Distribuer gratuitement aux citoyens une base comme des aliments sains, une eau de qualité et couvrir tous leurs besoins sanitaires ainsi que l’habitation, le transport, etc.
    5. Fournir gratuitement les soins de santé, une connexion Internet et une éducation à tous les niveaux.
    6. S’assurer que la technologie serve à tous et non juste à quelques uns.

    Paradism : For a World without work and money thanks to Science
    Conference
    Aug 10 2016 9:00 – 11:30

    The FSM is addressing many urgent matters we faced on planet Earth. Our economic system no longer works and a new system: PARADISM must urgently be put in place to replace the current one. Respect for life, resources, human rights, freedom, justice, education, basic living needs met for everyone and future generation, all these and much more are now possible thanks to the exponential development in various science and technologies such as robotics, advanced manufacturing, computers, health science, nanotechnologies, etc…

    6 Fundamentals of Paradism are:
    1. Liberate human beings from work
    2. Eliminate money
    3. Prioritize scientific development
    4. Give every Citizen some free quality food, water, and sanitary conditions
    5. Provide health care 24/7 and free internet access to everyone
    6. Ensure technology benefits everyone not just a few

  • Group logo of Revenu de base Québec
    Organization
    active 2 years, 11 months ago

    Nous sommes un organisme sans but lucratif née d’une initiative citoyenne. Nous militons pour l’implantation d’un revenu de base au Québec. Nous croyons qu’un revenu de base permettra de simplifier le fonctionnement de l’État, mais par-dessus tout d’assurer une vie digne à chaque Québecois(e) en plus de permettre à tous(tes) de poursuivre ses ambitions. Nous espérons initier et soutenir un dialogue entre parties prenantes pour le bénéfice des citoyens et citoyennes du Québec.

    We are a not-for-profit organization created from a citizen-led initiative. We are striving for an Unconditional Basic Income in Quebec. We believe that a UBI would simplify the functions of the government, and more, would provide each Quebecer with a life of dignity and the capacity to pursue their ambitions.

    We aspire to spark and maintain a dialogue of the merits of UBI for all Quebecers.
