communia’s introduction to sustainability
There are a lot of definitions for sustainable development, but the most widely accepted definition: “Humanity has the ability to make development sustainable — to ensure that it meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
communia is a revolutionary solution for local communities as it represents decentralized support for local communities and governments to enhance social capital and build a better place for sustainable living.
The project is created based on social, economical and technological trends and challenges of the 21st century. It is being developed according to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were introduced by the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) in 2015.
The concept encourages social movement, the use of technologies in sustainable development and encouraging local communities to conduct sustainable actions. Sustainable development spreads rapidly and it is becoming a central mission to different organizations, institutions, corporations and local communities.
communia touches the most important topics that society is facing today — economic inequality, environmental and climate challenges, poverty, urbanization, energy savings, responsible consumption and production, lack of trust in government, quality education and health. All defined goals to accomplish desired sustainable future are encouraging participants to engage in solutions with user-friendly and rewording system.
By being useful members of communia’s community and performing activities like recycling, maintaining the yard, volunteering for charity work, helping others, paying bills on time and doing other simple, yet beneficial tasks, participants will receive communia currency payouts to their wallets. These funds can be used to cover different communal services (monthly bills, cultural and sport events), or other services provided by community members (help around the house, babysitting, fixing plumbing etc.), or they can be shared among community members. Also, the local governments and its community members could support each other through the micro-loans model.
