The 'Cleaner Ocean Foundation' (COF) is a charity that is dedicated to ocean conservation. COF is also keen to promote the ocean economy to provide jobs for a circular economy in a changing world. Banking is an important part of international trade, running a country and a charity that is looking to operate a global project cost effectively. Thankfully, many banks have a corporate responsibility agenda that supports sustainable societies and the circular economy. Blue Growth is an important part of the world economy.
MONEY - Money was invented to replace the barter system. Very soon that led to money trading and lending that was not possible under the old system. Originally, gold and silver bullion was the reserve that every country used guaranteed its coin and paper money issues.
That is no longer the case. In reality if you were to demand gold or silver coins for the paper notes they had been working hard for, the banks of the various countries issuing paper notes would be unable to meet the demand.
Money then is only a tool to make things happen.
There are many kinds of investment in life: There are investments in relationships, investments in your career, your home, and money investments - such as a business venture or savings, stocks and shares. However, there is also the investment in humanity to consider. A high ideal maybe, but one that perhaps we should think more on for then our neighbour in other lands may also think kindly about us - as one big global family.
To achieve this we need to hold the attention of world leaders - those leaders who are elected to represent the wishes of the people - and stir their imagination as to the possibilities of international cooperation when it comes to our oceans. We need to explain to influential groups such as the G20 and United Nations, that it is possible to enjoy a high standard of living without plundering our natural resources or frying the planet - and that war is counter productive.
It is possible to live in peace with our neighbours and trade for profit. Indeed, wealth must be created to improve the quality of life and to allow those in trusted positions to help those less well off.
Like any other not for profit organisation, the Cleaner Ocean Foundation needs to generate an income to be able to continue their valuable research work. You can help us play our part in cleaning up the oceans just by spreading our message.
