The Joon Project
***Namaskar, and Welcome to The Family***
Our goal is to create a global hub where people can come together to share knowledge, ideas, skills, stories, and dreams, about achieving a balance and harmony between humans, nature, and technology.
***The Purpose Behind Our Project***
We recognize the shortcomings of existing man-made systems and their impact on future generations, fellow species, and the environment. Our current world is plagued by divisions, conflicts, inequality, and environmental degradation. Moreover, our education system perpetuates these problems.
To address these issues, we are committed to:
- Embracing the Earth as one global community
- Valuing and preserving nature as a shared planet
- Planting and consuming local, organic, seasonal, and healthy food
- Recognizing every human as part of the same species
- Embedding education within society and life itself
- Establishing an economy based on resource sharing
- Leveraging technology to support our work
- Cultivating a life based on learning, understanding, sharing, love, and compassion
We are currently in the process of:
- Building an international hub to meet, share and work toward a goal
- Designing and constructing the Project House
- Developing a permaculture farm based on sustainable principles
- Establishing connections with local community workstations to create an Open Community School of Life
- Spreading our messages
- Starting a sustainable business to support the project.
- And, Educating and empowering children within the community
During this phase, we require enthusiastic individuals to contribute in various areas, such as:
- General management tasks, planning, brainstorming, accounting
- Designing and implementing the Permaculture Farm
- Engaging with and supporting the community children
- Assisting in the cleaning, kitchen, and cooking
- Managing our social networking channels
- Filming and editing our project's progress
- Helping with crowed fundraising
...and much more!
