The Venus Project – Resource Based Economy
The Venus Project proposes a new holistic, socio-economic design called a Resource Based Economy, in which the methods of science and technology are holistically integrated with nature to maximise the quality of life for all people in a money-free world.
On July 17th, 2016, The Venus Project founder, Jacque Fresco, received the award for City Design & Community from the NOVUS summit at the General Assembly Hall of the United Nations in conjunction with the United Nations division UN DESA.
This award comes after Jacque’s lifetime effort to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all using technology and innovation now coincides with a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 associated targets adopted at the United Nations General Assembly on 25 September 2015 as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
At the conference, The Venus Project announced the beginning of the next phase of their development – their new non-profit organisation Resource Based Economy will initiate construction of the first city.
The city will showcase design and architecture and be a hub for preparing and working on the transition towards a global resource based economy, where all goods and services are available to all people without the need for money, credits, or barter because they have been declared the common heritage of all people on Earth.
Could we use today’s technology to calculate the world’s resources and then provide for everyone’s needs without the need for money?
