Education is the only answer to Peace and Prosperity
OUR VISION - 'EXCELLENCE WITH PURPOSE.'
Never in the history of man has there been a greater time and need for global Change. Competition over dwindling resources, financial crises, global debt , trade imbalance and politics is leading to dysfunction and conflict among nations. Politicians work to overcome complex issues but are constrained by partisan politics and national interest. Jobs and investments shift. Technology, AI and even quantum computing is changing the landscape faster than most of us can react.
Higher taxation, currency dilution through quantitative easing increases living costs. These are the results of failed socio-economic governance. The rise of terrorism and ideological wars are the end results of deep-seated root causes.
Climate change is another. The economic burden on families drives further claim on resources in a negative cycle compounded by unstable financial markets driven by fear and greed. This sets a dangerous precedent that may collapse the family unit leading to the ultimate demise of societies.
Increases in crime, abuse, broken marriages, pollution, animal cruelty, etc. are signs of continuing social decay. Solutions are lacking. Baby boomers have gone through this before but this time, we are seeing far more serious implications for the Millennium, X, Y and Z Generations . It is best summed up as follows.
“HUMAN PROGRESS IS NEITHER AUTOMATIC NOR INEVITABLE. WE ARE FACED NOW WITH THE FACT THAT TOMORROW IS TODAY. WE ARE CONFRONTED WITH THE FIERCE URGENCY OF NOW. IN THIS UNFOLDING CONUNDRUM OF LIFE AND HISTORY THERE IS SUCH A THING AS BEING TOO LATE…WE MAY CRY OUT DESPERATELY FOR TIME TO PAUSE IN HER PASSAGE, BUT TIME IS DEAF TO EVERY PLEA AND RUSHES ON. OVER THE BLEACHED BONES AND JUMBLED RESIDUES OF NUMEROUS CIVILIZATIONS ARE WRITTEN THE PATHETIC WORDS: TOO LATE!”
The Peregrine Foundation aims to deliver solutions to catalyse change through prosperity for all using a set of powerful financial and social tools to mitigate before it is ‘too late’. These are not new ideas. Many have tried and failed when accountability and transparency is compromised. With the advent of block chain technology, we believe it is now possible to build robust systems that will enable equitable wealth distribution.
‘Excellence with Purpose.’ Coordinated approach across the six principal areas of the human ecological footprint can have a positive impact on the planet while creating a financially sustainable and dynamically global enterprise that is ethically driven that could catalyse ecologically based activities into the future.
We begin by understanding the human ecological footprint. In order to achieve this, it is not simply the deployment of technologies and solutions within one element in the footprint, it is how each element affects the others and that impacts on people and the wider environment.
How we navigate that balance between these elements is key to our wider future, a key recent example of that balance is between use for food or energy production, a sobering example that sustainability is not just for developing countries ; it is an issue that affects every person on the planet. This has consequently lead to our core focus of healthcare, water, energy, food, transport and waste management solutions on a global scale.
By 2050, some nine billion will populate this planet with concomitant stress on food, water, energy, health, transport and waste. Billions have no access to sanitation or clean water. National Geographic suggests there will be no more commercially viable fish by 2048 . Global warming adds to the undesirable pot of despair. Billions worry enough about the future to the point where they no longer wish to start families. We see greater trade conflict, money wars and worsening social breakdown.
What happens to the family unit? How will society deal with democracy or for that matter, any other socio-political system? Can we survive another century or go over the apocalyptic brink? The clear and present danger to humanity is real.
We propose new ways to mitigate and perhaps resolve the root causes with prosperity and peace to all concerned using social crypto currency intervention to help communities at all levels.
Progress comes from education, across all continents. The Peregrine Foundation intention from its business network is to build three Peace Universities as detailed in the White Paper. These will take in 100 of the brightest of the bright to do their Masters and PhD programmes. The Fourth University is on-line for undergraduate degree programmes. All students are required to complete an MBA degree and a minimum linguistics skill of five languages besides their native tongue.
