Harmony Communities Spread the Green Wealth with Credits

Communications starts the process...actions complete it. Joining communications together with action will green our world rapidly, democratically, and positively. Here's an example of how positive actions can be rewarded.

Cooperatives, frequent flyer miles, green stamps...we have a tradition of helping shape behaviors with tangible, trackable rewards. China is now leading the way in providing "Harmony Points" for sustainable behaviors, as shown in this short video.

My nephew, who lives in Japan, had a similar idea a couple years ago. He's onto something...and works to implement his concept of "better living today!" If we could cooperatively reward people who make sustainable choices in a cooperative, we could truly reward positive change.

What an idea!

The technology is now here to track these points on mobile devices and Internet-connected computers. We have non-profits and for-profit businesses that can join together to create the "system"... a mutual benefits cooperative in which those who make greater contributions are rewarded with the ability to do even more!

Are you ready to take up the challenge and advocate and work for a more harmonious, cooperative points system in your town?

China's President Hu Jintao’s recent announcement at the U.N. General Assembly pledged to set new targets to curb carbon emissions.

He also emphasized the need for global cooperation, urging the international community to jointly "build a harmonious world of enduring peace and common prosperity."

It is this sentiment that comes alive in IDEO Shanghai’s moving piece about a government-subsidized housing development called Harmony City. Set in 2030, it offers "a more sustainable way of living where the entire community is in it together" — it’s a place that supports the longstanding ethos and energy-saving behaviors of Chinese citizens, such as daily outdoor exercising, hand-laundering, and local food shopping.
