ENHANCED SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS (ENHANCED SDG)

 

In the blockchain industry, if we do not like or agree with the direction the original blockchain is headed, we can clone and create our own blockchain, which we call forking. The founders of the Earth Dollar were not satisfied with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, so we decided to hard-fork the SDG to created our own version, which we called the Enhanced Sustainable Development Goals (“Enhanced SDG”). The founders of the Earth Dollar envision living in a world where all beings on this great planet are able to thrive, not just sustained. While the UN’s 17 SDGs are a good starting foundation, it only represents a minimum viable survival standard. There is a fundamental difference between thriving and surviving. Surviving means, “to continue to live or exist,” while thrive can be defined as “to grow or develop well, to prosper or to flourish.” So, therefore, the founders have “enhanced” the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals to support our vision of a thriving world. Thriving happens when people have a life of purpose, abundance, vitality, prosperity, connection, and celebration. People who are thriving wake up every day excited, full of joy, and happy that they are alive. Following the style of the blockchain industry, we forked the SDGs and enhanced it to create the Enhanced Sustainable Development Goals.

NOTE: WE ARE NOT PART OF THE UNITED NATIONS. WE JUST FORKED THE SDG TO ENHANCE IT

UP TO $5.28 TRILLION IN LIQUIDITY PROVIDED BY THE EARTH DOLLAR TO FULFILL THE SDGs

 

The United Nations estimated that we will need up to $100 trillion in the wake of COVID-19 (added to the war between Russia and Ukraine) to deal with these urgent global challenges of fulfilling the Sustainable Development Goals. 

The Earth Dollar’s initial goal is to tokenize and unleash $5.28 trillion in liquidity to revitalize the global economies. The long-term goal is to acquire an additional $100+ trillion in assets to deal with these urgent global challenges.

There are two sides of the COVID-19 crisis – the medical emergency and economic impact – that are closely intertwined. 

The world needs liquidity and new wealth (that never existed before) to reinvigorate the global economy ravaged by the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, unsustainable cities, the extinction of speciesjoblessness, poverty, rising cancer, and disease rates, and other crises. 

The COVID-19 Pandemic wiped out 75 million jobs in 2021. Furthermore, extreme poverty increased globally by up to 224 million people between March and December 2020. We need bold actions now to deal with these global crises to avoid these multiple catastrophes. We are already past the point of no return.

Imagine being able to solve some of the greatest crises and challenges of our generation. 

The COVID-19 Pandemic lockdowns worldwide have put modern civilization on pause. Before the pandemic, spaceship Earth was moving full steam ahead and headed for a collision course with a giant iceberg. 

We are headed for the 6th Mass Extinction, a climate catastrophe, and increased poverty/hunger worldwide. As we restart the global economy, do we go back to doing things the way they were or chart a new path for a sustainable civilization?

The Earth Dollar is a bold experiment designed to resolve some of the greatest challenges of our generation, like ending global poverty in our lifetime, restoring the climate to pre-industrial levels, and protecting biodiversity to head off the 6th Mass Extinction. 

 

THE UNITED NATIONS REPORT ON SDGs

The advanced version of the UN Secretary-General’s annual report on SDG progress for the July 2021 session of the UN High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) says, 

“The report begins by stressing that even before the COVID-19 pandemic, SDG progress was not on track. Progress towards the Goals was not occurring fast enough for achievement by 2030 and was even stalled or moving backward in some areas. According to the report, the world’s collective response in the next 18 months will determine whether the pandemic turns out to be a “much-needed wake-up call.” Among other lessons, it has confirmed that “by threatening biodiversity, humanity threatens its survival.”

No Homelessness & No Displacement of People; 25. Earth Wisdom and Rights of Mother Earth; 26. Children & Youth. 

  

SDG 1. NO POVERTY

Problem: On Goal 1 (no poverty): the report from the United Nations warns that ending poverty by 2030 is out of reach due to the “triple threat of COVID-19, conflict and climate change,” unless governments immediately implement substantial policy actions, including social protection systems.

Solution: On Enhanced Goal 1 (no poverty): To achieve Goal 1, the Earth Dollar is funding the implementation of a new alternative Living Economic System that is opposite of our extractive economy. The Living Economic System generates new wealth, prosperity, and abundance by protecting, restoring, and revitalizing the Earth; this includes unleashing new wealth into the global economy by monetizing trillions of dollars of unused, underused, dormant, and new assets via the launch of the Earth Dollar. Some of the assets being monetized are in-ground assets of precious metals consisting of gold, silver, platinum, palladium, rhodium, and Natural Capital Assets, as well as art and intellectual property, pledged as NFTs. 

 Up to $5.28 trillion in initial assets have been a pledge to back the Earth Dollar and to launch the new Living Economic System. 

 It is designed to transition our world from an extractive economy to a restorative Living Economy. The Earth Dollar will also run an experimental World Basic Income Program that pays members to live a sustainable lifestyle. Members and sponsored poor people can get paid a monthly World Basic Income to top up their existing income, with the Earth Dollar. To receive a World Basic Income Members have 3 options. (1) Run a Mother Earth Supercomputer (aka Mother Earth OS) masternode to help end poverty and restore the Earth, (2) Run a Mother Earth Supercomputer (aka Mother Earth OS) regular node, (3) Apply to receive Earth Shares and pledge to live a sustainable lifestyle; note that Members can do all 3 options to maximize your World Basic Income. Each node represents the sponsorship of thousands of poor people and refugees; the more nodes that people run, the more people the World Basic Income can sponsor. This way, we can end global poverty in our lifetime.

  

SDG 2. ZERO HUNGER

Problem on Goal 2 (zero hunger): the UN report warns that the pandemic might have pushed an additional 83 million to 132 million into chronic hunger in 2020, and multiple forms of malnutrition are a problem in countries around the world.

Solution on Enhanced Goal 2 (zero hunger): The Earth Dollar will fund numerous vertical farms, organic farms, water extraction facilities, and aquaculture facilities to achieve food security and improved nutrition in at-risk regions. The agricultural and water technologies will be shared with the world. The World Basic Income Program with the Earth Dollar will support the poorest people in the world in regions such as Indigenous Nations, Africa, India, etc. The support of the Earth Dollar and its connected projects such as the Living Economic System, the Earth Dollar, and the World Basic Income Program allows us to end global hunger in our lifetime. 

  

SDG 3. GOOD HEALTH AND WELLBEING

Problem on Goal 3 (good health and wellbeing), the report finds that essential health services are still disrupted in 90% of countries. The most affected include services for: mental, neurological, and substance use disorders; neglected tropical diseases; tuberculosis; HIV and hepatitis B and C; cancer and other non-communicable diseases; and family planning and contraception.

 Solution on Enhanced Goal 3 (good health and wellbeing): The Earth Dollar will be establishing wellness centers and spas around the world with Indigenous Nations as partners. The wellness centers will include both traditional and modern medicines, such as herbal medicines, acupuncture, energy healing, modern medicines, sound, and more. Furthermore, all the wellness centers will be built with the principles of Sacred Geometry and Fung Shui to maximize the Earth’s healing energies.

  

SDG 4. QUALITY EDUCATION

Problem on Goal 4 (quality education), the UN report notes COVID-19 as a “generational catastrophe” for children’s learning and wellbeing. The most vulnerable children and those unable to access remote learning, the report says, are at an increased risk of not returning to school, and even child marriage or child labor.

Solution on Enhanced Goal 4 (quality education): We want to support high-quality and creative learning centers for students and the world. We also encourage large companies and businesses to accept students for internship programs and to hire them for summer jobs. The Earth Dollar and its partners will provide vocational training to thousands of students. The Earth Dollar will also be establishing satellite hubs around the world to support education, innovation, and creativity worldwide. We also will have partnerships to build museums for education, culture, and more.

 

 SDG 5. GENDER EQUALITY

Problem on Goal 5 (gender equality): the UN report notes the pandemic has led to intensified trends in violence against women and girls, increased child marriage, and disproportionate effects on women of increased care work at home. According to the report, however, the crisis presents a chance to re-make systems, laws, policies, and institutions in ways that advance gender equality.

Solution on Enhanced Goal 5 (gender equality): A majority of the Earth Dollar’s funds will be geared towards women, women entrepreneurs, and disadvantaged communities. The Earth Dollar is non-discriminatory. Men and women from all genders, races, religions, and affiliations are treated with respect, care, and dignity at the Earth Dollar.

  

SDG 6. WATER IS LIFE – CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION

Problem on Goal 6 (water is life – clean water and sanitation), the UN report notes billions of people worldwide still live without safely managed drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene services, which are critical for protecting human health and containing the spread of COVID-19. The world is not on track to achieve SDG 6 under existing conditions.  

Solution on Enhanced Goal 6 (water is life): The Earth Dollar can put the world back on track to achieve SDG 6 by providing fresh water to the world; this is done by building water wells, atmospheric water generator (extraction of water by air), and using permaculture restore watersheds. The funding of these water projects is provided by the Earth Dollar program.

 

 SDG 7. FREE, AFFORDABLE, RENEWABLE, AND CLEAN ENERGY

Problem on Goal 7 (free, affordable, renewable, and clean energy), the UN report notes despite significant progress over the last decade on improving access to electricity, increasing the use of renewable energy in the electricity sectors, and improving energy efficiency, the world is still short of achieving affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all. Clean and sustainable energy should be at the heart of the COVID-19 response and fight against climate change.

Solution on Enhanced Goal 7 (free and renewable energy): the original “Goal 7: Affordable and Clean Energy” of the United Nations has been changed in the Enhanced Sustainable Development Goals to “Goal 7: Free, Affordable, Renewable and Clean Energy”. We added Free and Renewable Energy because this is an important technology that can free humanity. This includes using wind, solar, hydrogen, geothermal, seawater, hydroelectric, airwaves, and biomass. We expect 50% of the energy from the Earth Dollar to come from renewable energy like solar power. Also, in partnership with the Da Vinci Supercar Company, we are planning to produce electric cars in the Earth Dollar for shipment worldwide. The Earth Dollar will be attracting the brightest minds from around the world to work in the city to create innovative energy solutions for the benefit of humanity.

 

SDG 8. ENJOYABLE WORK AND IMPLEMENT THE LIVING ECONOMY

Problem on Goal 8 (enjoyable work and living economy), the UN report notes that the Earth Dollar has changed the “UN’s SDG 8 decent work” to “enjoyable work because people need to enjoy what they are doing to have a happy life. Also, the “UN’s SDG 8 economic growth” has been changed to the “Living Economy”, since it is exponential economic growth and GDP that is fuelling the destruction of our planet. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused the worst global economic recession since the Great Depression and massive damage to working time and income. In 2020, 8.8% of global working hours were lost (relative to the fourth quarter of 2019), equivalent to 255 million full-time jobs, which is approximately four times greater than the loss during the global financial crisis in 2009. Young workers and women were particularly hard hit by the crisis in the labor market. The global economy is slowly recovering, although it may remain below pre-pandemic trends for a prolonged period.

Solution on Enhanced Goal 8 (enjoyable work and living economy): While the United Nation’s “decent work” is a minimal standard, Enjoyable Work is the highest standard we can achieve in the work environment. Also, Economic Growth has been changed to implement the Living Economy, a new economic system centered on the protection, and preservation of all life on the planet; new wealth is generated as the Earth is being restored. The United Nations has called for 7% GDP growth per annum in the least developed countries and higher levels of economic productivity across the board, which is contributing to the destruction of our planet. This is unsustainable. The core of the United Nations’ SDG program relies on the old paradigm model of indefinite economic growth that caused our ecological crisis in the first place: ever-increasing levels of extraction, production, and consumption. This is a profound contradiction to the heart of these supposedly sustainable goals. They call for both less and more at the same time. Currently, global production and consumption levels are overshooting our planet’s biocapacity by nearly 60% each year. In other words, growth isn’t an option anymore – we’ve already grown too much. Scientists tell us that we are blowing past planetary boundaries at breakneck speed and witnessing the greatest mass extinction of species in more than 66 million years. The hard truth is that our ecological overshoot is due almost entirely to over-consumption in rich countries, particularly the West. The Earth Dollar team has adopted the Living Economic System which does not generate wealth from infinite economic growth or GDP. New wealth is generated by restoring the Earth, thus the Living Economic System can both lift millions of people out of poverty while restoring the Earth, thus can quickly fulfill all 26 Enhanced SDGs in a short time. Exponential economic growth and GDP are fuelling the destruction of our planet. Up to $5.28 trillion in initial assets have been a pledge to back the Earth Dollar and to launch the new Living Economic System. It is designed to transition our world from an extractive economy to a restorative Living Economy.

  

SDG 9. INDUSTRY, INNOVATION, AND INFRASTRUCTURE

Problem on Goal 9 (build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation), the UN report notes the year before COVID-19 triggered the greatest economic crisis in decades, manufacturing value-added had seen the slowest year-on-year growth rate since 2012, primarily because of tariff and trade tensions between the most dominant economies. The COVID-19 pandemic has hit manufacturing and transport industries hard, causing job losses and declining incomes for workers in these sectors. The crisis poses unprecedented challenges to global value chains by disrupting both the supply of goods and the demand for them. Small-scale industries have been severely affected by the pandemic and many continue to face existential challenges. However, the COVID-19 crisis also offers opportunities to foster industrialization and bring ground-breaking technologies to developing countries.

Solution on Enhanced 9 (build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization, and foster innovation), to achieve Goal 9, the Earth Dollar is building resilient infrastructure, promoting inclusive and sustainable industrialization, and fostering innovation. Since the COVID-19 pandemic has turned industries and infrastructures on its head, we need to think outside the box to create a sustainable world that is more in tune with nature and the Earth. Also, we need to build carbon-negative structures and reduce the greenhouse emissions of major industries, as well as switch from fossil fuel burning cars and busses to electric. The Earth Dollar is up for the challenge and will be a world leader in building carbon-negative homes, buildings, roads, 3-D printed residences, and infrastructure with advanced hempcrete in partnership with the Unlimited Hemp Company and the World Hemp Alliance. The Earth Dollar will also be working with the Da Vinci Supercar Company to build electric cars in the city, and for export worldwide. The COVID-19 pandemic allows the Earth Dollar to build more local supply chains such as vertical farms, organic farms, fruit gardens, aquaculture facilities, large-scale 3-D printing facilities, and local suppliers to serve some of the Members, and visitors’ needs. This time let’s build all the infrastructures with sustainable materials such as hempcrete, hemp wood, hemp bricks, bamboo, carbon-negative concrete, and other space-age materials. 

 

SDG 10. NO INEQUALITIES

Problem on Goal 10 (no inequalities), the UN report notes that for the poorest countries, SDG progress is being pushed back a full ten years because of the pandemic. In 2020 refugees were at the highest number on record. 

Solution on Enhanced Goal 10 (no inequalities), the original “Goal 10: Reduced Inequalities” of the United Nations has been changed in the Enhanced Sustainable Development Goals to “Goal 10: No Inequalities”. We upgraded Goal 10. While Reduced Inequalities is a minimal standard, No Inequalities is the highest standard we can achieve, to eliminate all inequalities. Not only does the Earth Dollar support gender equality, but our goal is to have no inequalities. A majority of the $5.28 trillion in sustainability funding and liquidity is geared towards women, women entrepreneurs, and disadvantaged communities. The Earth Dollar is non-discriminatory. Men and women from all genders, races, religions, and affiliations are treated with respect, care, and dignity at the Earth Dollar. As for the refugee crisis, the Earth Dollar is supporting the World Basic Income program to sponsor refugees to meet their basic needs. 

 

SDG 11. THRIVING CITIES AND COMMUNITIES

Problem on Goal 11 (Make thriving cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable), the UN report notes before the pandemic, cities experienced rising slum dweller populations, worsening air pollution, minimal open public spaces, and limited convenient access to public transport. The COVID-19 direct and indirect impacts are making reaching the goal even more unlikely, with increases in the number of slum dwellers and those who have downgraded to live in slum-like conditions, while also worsening the quality of life and vulnerabilities for those already living in slums

Solution on Enhanced Goal 11 (thriving cities communities), the original “Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities” of the United Nations has been changed in the Enhanced Sustainable Development Goals to “Goal 11: Thriving Cities and Communities”. We upgraded Goal 11. While Sustainable Cities and Communities are a minimal standard, Thriving Cities and Communities is the highest standard we can achieve. There is a fundamental difference between thriving and sustainable. Sustainable means, “able to be maintained at a certain rate or level,” while thrive can be defined as “to grow or develop well, to prosper or to flourish.” So, therefore, the founders have “upgraded” the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals to support our vision of a thriving world. Thriving happens when people have a life of purpose, abundance, vitality, prosperity, connection, and celebration. People who are thriving wake up every day excited, full of joy, and happy that they are alive. To achieve Goal 11, the Earth Dollar plans to build a family-friendly and youth-friendly environment for both Members (permanent residents) and visitors (tourists) in partnered cities. Our goal is to allow all beings to reach their full potential.

 

SDG 12. RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION

Problem on Goal 12 (responsible consumption and production), the UN report explains that unsustainable production and consumption is driving “the three planetary crises: the climate crisis, the biodiversity crisis, and the pollution crisis.” Recovery from COVID-19 allows for exploring more inclusive and equitable development models, to begin the necessary process of decoupling economic growth and human well-being from resource use and environmental impacts.

Solution on Enhanced Goal 12 (responsible consumption and production), the Earth Dollar is supporting the implementation of a new alternative Living Economic System that is opposite of our extractive economy. The Living Economic System decouples wealth generation from exponential economic growth and extraction. The Living Economic System generates new wealth, prosperity, and abundance by protecting, restoring, and revitalizing the Earth; this includes unleashing new wealth into the global economy by monetizing trillions of dollars of unused, underused, dormant, and new assets via the launch of the Earth Dollar. We also are providing a World Basic Income Program that rewards people for responsible consumption. 

 

SDG 13. CLIMATE RESTORATION 

Problem on Goal 13 (climate restoration), the UN report reiterates that global CO2 emissions must reach net zero by 2050 to limit warming to .5°C above pre-industrial levels as called for in the Paris Agreement. Greenhouse gases (GHG) increased in 2020 around the world, despite changes to typical patterns during lockdown periods of the pandemic. 

Solution on Enhanced Goal 13 (climate restoration), to achieve Enhanced Goal 13 to restore the climate to pre-industrial levels, the Earth Dollar is supporting the Two Trillion Trees Program, which plants mangroves, trees, and hemp around the world. The Earth Dollar is also building the world’s first carbon-negative city, which absorbs more greenhouse gases than it produces. Climate Change is the greatest challenge of this generation and the Earth Dollar is ready to provide the solutions. We can bring climate change under control, to alleviate and mitigate human suffering, and natural disasters. Climate change is a global problem and impacts the entire planet so join the Earth Dollar and its related initiatives to take drastic actions immediately to bring greenhouse levels back to pre-industrial levels.

 

SDG 14. LIFE BELOW WATER 

Problem on Goal 14 (Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas, and marine resources for sustainable development), the UN report that more than three billion people rely on the ocean for their livelihoods and more than 80% of world merchandise trade by volume is carried by sea. The vast oceans, seas, and marine resources are under continual threat from pollution, warming, and acidification that are disrupting marine ecosystems and the communities they support. These changes have long-term repercussions that require urgently scaling up protection of marine environments, investment in ocean science and support for small-scale fishery communities, and the sustainable management of the oceans.

 Solution on Enhanced Goal 14 (Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas, and marine resources for sustainable development), the UN report that the oceans are under continual threat from pollution, warming, acidification, and unsustainable fishing. The Earth Dollar is supporting the Two Trillion Trees Program to restore the greenhouse gases to pre-industrial levels by planning trees, mangroves, and hemp. The Earth Dollar is planning as a humanitarian effort to fund Mr. Trashwheels and the Ocean Cleanup (Boyan Slat) in cleaning up the oceans.

  

SDG 15. LIFE ON LAND 

Problem on Goal 15 (Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss), the UN report that deforestation and forest degradation, continued biodiversity loss, and the ongoing degradation of ecosystems, are having profound consequences for human wellbeing and survival. The world fell short on 2020 targets to halt biodiversity loss. The COVID-19 pandemic has confirmed that by threatening biodiversity, humanity threatens its survival. While great efforts are being made on expanding sustainable forest management, increasing coverage of key biodiversity areas, and signing up to legislation and treaties to protect biodiversity and ecosystems, much more needs to be done to put the health of the planet at the center of all our plans and policies.

Solution on Enhanced Goal 15 (Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss), the Earth Dollar is already protecting and co-stewarding 45 million acres of indigenous land in Canada as World Heritage Sanctuaries. To minimize the loss of biodiversity, the Earth Dollar is supporting the implementation of a new alternative Living Economic System that is opposite of our extractive economy. Also, the Earth Dollar is supporting the Two Trillion Trees Program, which plants mangroves, trees, and hemp around the world; this creates more habitation for wildlife and reverses ocean acidification which is killing marine life. Furthermore, we plan to run in parallel an alternative the Living Economic System that generates wealth by protecting, restoring, and revitalizing the Earth. The Earth Dollar is also planning to work with Indigenous Nations, the Bureau of Land Management, and the U.S. Forestry Service to help reverse desertification and turn desert areas into parks.

 

SDG 16. PEACE, JUSTICE, AND FAIR INSTITUTIONS 

Problem on Goal 16 (peace, justice, and strong institutions), the UN report that rights and protection systems have been “shattered” in some countries, and weakened in many others.

Solution on Enhanced Goal 16 (peace, justice, and fair institutions), we change the United Nation’s SDG of “Strong Institutions” to “Fair Institutions”. A strong institution can be a dictatorship, but not necessarily fair. The UN report that rights and protection systems have been “shattered” in some countries and weakened in many others due to COVID-19. The Earth Dollar is supporting the creation of Free Nations (an abbreviation for Free Nations United to Heal Mother Earth) and the Free Nations General Assembly. Free Nations will represent more than 1,000 indigenous nations and benevolent countries, protecting 80% of the Earth’s biodiversity and governing 25% of the world’s traditional land. Currently, indigenous nations do not have any permanent or voting seats at the UN General Assembly. The Free Nations General Assembly will give a voice to the voiceless, the powerless, the poor, and then forgotten.

 

SDG 17. PARTNERSHIPS FOR THE GOALS 

Problem on Goal 17 (partnerships for the Goals): the UN report finds that foreign direct investment is expected to drop by 40%. This and other factors are shrinking countries’ ability to make critical investments in recovery, climate change, and the SDGs. 

Solution on Enhanced Goal 17 (partnership for the Goal): Everyone around the world will be impacted by the Earth Dollar initiative and its connected projects because it injects up to $5.28+ trillion into the global economy and can help fulfill the 26 Enhanced Sustainable Development Goals, including ending poverty, protecting biodiversity, and restoring the climate to pre-industrial levels. 

 

 

SDG 18. LIFE TOGETHER 

Solution on Enhanced Goal 18 (life together), this new SDG was proposed by the Creators2030 because they felt it was important to be able to live in harmony with one another. Being able to live in harmony with one another is the basis of all good relationships. The Earth Dollar’s society is based on living in harmony with each other and working together collaboratively. The Business Hubs within the Earth Dollar are designed to maximize collaborative efforts. Also, the World Basic Income Program rewards people for social good – including financial rewards, badges of honor, and other types of rewards; for example, if you volunteer to clean up the beach, help out at an old age home, or. other humanitarian tasks, you will get rewarded.

 

 

SDG 19. FUTURE OF HUMANITY (“MOONSHOTS”)

Solution on Enhanced Goal 19 (Future of Humanity (“Moonshots”), this new SDG for the Future of Humanity was created by the Future of Humanity Foundation, and it is a collective leap in consciousness. We are creating ‘Moon Shots’ to collectively awaken to our greatest selves in service to the collective whole. The Earth Dollar in itself is a moonshot for the future of humanity by providing a giant step forward for humankind. 

 

 

 

 

SDG 20. INDIGENOUS PEOPLES RIGHTS 

Solution on Enhanced Goal 20 (Indigenous Peoples Rights), the Earth Dollar added the Indigenous Peoples Rights in the Enhanced Sustainable Development Goals because indigenous peoples and indigenous nations are often left out of the United Nations system. Furthermore, Indigenous Peoples’ rights are enshrined in the United Nations’ Declaration of the Rights on Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) and the Mother Earth Constitution. Often, they have been colonized, exploited, prosecuted, jailed, and even killed in the process of defending their rights. The Earth Dollar is supporting the creation of Free Nations (an abbreviation for Free Nations United to Heal Mother Earth) and the Free Nations General Assembly. Free Nations will represent more than 1,000 indigenous nations and benevolent countries, protecting 80% of the Earth’s biodiversity and governing 25% of the world’s traditional land. Currently, indigenous nations do not have any permanent or voting seats at the UN General Assembly. The Free Nations General Assembly will give a voice to Indigenous peoples worldwide.

 

SDG 21. SUSTAINABLE, GMO-FREE, CHEMICAL-FREE AGRICULTURE AND SAVING THE BEES
