Earth Shares represents your inherent sovereign birthright to the benefits of the Earth
“Earth Shares is the birthright of every man, woman, and child to be able to receive their inheritance to the Earth. The Earth Shares represent that inherent sovereign birthright”
The LiveHOPE Festival is working with Mother Earth Trust to register people on the blockchain to receive their Earth Shares.
Note: shares are for a limited time only, and may be withdrawn at anytime. Our initial goal is to register 1 million people for the Earth Shares before the LiveHOPE Festival.
Sooner or later, we will have to recognise that the Earth has rights, too, to live without pollution. What mankind must know is that human beings cannot live without Mother Earth, but the planet can live without humans. – Evo Morales

I think people who are creative are the luckiest people on earth. I know that there are no shortcuts, but you must keep your faith in something Greater than You, and keep doing what you love. Do what you love, and you will find the way to get it out to the world. – Judy Collins

EARTH SOVEREIGN WEALTH FUND
Earth Sovereign Wealth Fund is a fund that will be collectively created by humanity with a mission to restore the Earth, to end global poverty, and to fulfill the Enhanced Sustainable Development Goals.
The main source of the assets used to generate the funds is from the Earth itself, including the mineral rights, trees, freshwater, and ecosystem services provided by nature, which we call Natural Capital Assets. The value of the Natural Capital Assets is calculated through the Natural Captial Accounting Principles. Other types of assets include manufactured assets and intellectual property assets.
The restored Natural Capital Assets (like cleanup polluted lakes) and new Natural Capital Assets (like planted trees) will be tracked on an alternative Living Economic System built on the blockchain that generates new wealth by restoring the Earth; this new economic system is created by modeling the World Bank’s Natural Capital Accounting System on the blockchain and powered with a new asset-backed community currency called the Earth Dollar.
Also, the use of funds, artists’ expenditures, donations, the SDG metrics, environmentally and social impacts will be openly and transparently tracked via blockchain technology.
