Every single individual has unique gifts to share, unique passions to follow, and unique weaknesses to strengthen. Imagine a network of part-time mentors, dedicating roughly 2 hours of their time every week to share their knowledge in certain expertise to people who need it, and another 2 hours to empower their own ideas through the mentorship of other specialized mentors. All members (mentors) of that network share a mutual goal: To bring prosperity to all, one baby step at a time. Four hours per week may not sound like much, but let’s not forget that each one of these mentors is a human being who has its own life with unique constraints. Through contributing close to four hours a week, they may pursue their normal lives: have a full-time job, practice their frequent hobbies, tend to their families… Our main principle with the PraxEco project is to derive (and deliver) value out of perseverance. PraxEco stands for Praxis Ecology - the regenerative repetitive actions that empowers relationships and interactions between organisms and their environment.
Though this project idea may seem utopic to some, it is addressing the urgent environmental needs through bridging it with another urgent need: Unemployment due to social constraints in Canada. Those social constraints apply to new immigrants, new graduates (or students), and mentally or emotionally challenged individuals.
PraxEco is a harmonic network fueled by collective empowerment and motivation to innovate solutions in various domains tailored towards self-sufficiency. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life while significantly reducing the cost of living and nurturing a deeper sense of connection.
PraxEco is an open-source collaborative value network that provides its members with the resources - financial and human-skills - to fund and support innovative ideas that have positive outcomes on the future of our societies. Network members are seen as mentors in their unique field of expertise. They are given the chance to foster their expertise, follow their interests, and have access to other experts in the multi-diverse network. In addition to the strategic web of multi-disciplinary projects and products, members with own projects that follow our values could receive funding from the community. The profit resulting from the success of sponsored projects is distributed between the community members, its bank (future projects), and the resource-investors that made it possible in an ethical Activity-based concept. The goal of this collaboration is to achieve a level of diversity - in form of participants’ qualifications, skills, talents, background and interests - for the community to self-sustain with an abundance of resources. The result is a modern harmonic culture.

"If we really wish to put an end to our ongoing international and social problems we must eventually declare Earth and all of its resources as the common heritage of all the world's [
people.]" - Jacque Fresco, The Venus Project
"...inhabitants and biodiversity." - PraxEco Network
Note: The word "people" is striked because we believe the quote is incomplete. We believe that Earth's resources are not only property of humans, but also common heritage of its species and biodiversity.
