A Global Partnership of Solidarity or Global Partnership for Wealth? | Campaign for People's Goals for Sustainable Development | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Below is the sign-on statement from civil society organisations expressing their critical stance regarding the emerging trend of partnerships with the private sector as the major enabler of sustainable development for post-2015. It calls for a just and transformative Global Partnership that will seriously tackle the global systemic issues at the root of the development concerns that the world face today and emphasises the need for governments to commit to their human rights obligations to their citizens and to the international community.

In 2009, Susanne Jordan and Nager IT took on the challenge of developing the first fair IT device on the market. “I have been unable to find alternatives,” she says. “So I did it myself.” Her aim was to offer critical “consumers” an alternative. “At the moment, we either buy nothing or we buy what is available.” Nager IT’s first product is the fair computer mouse. “A mouse is not a hip product,” she says, “but it’s quite a simple product, so I thought I could be able to create a fair mouse.”

What role do complementary currencies play in alleviating poverty, creating income equality, and building sustainable communities? According to John Boik PhD, a vital one. Founder of the Principled Societies Projectand author of the book Economic Direct Democracy: A Framework to End Poverty and Maximize Well-Being, Boik designed a multi-faceted framework for local democratic systems of which a complementary currency is a key element. A computer simulation model that describes the book’s proposed local-national currency system saw median and mean take-home family income more than double, income inequality nearly eliminated, and the unemployment rate drop to 1 percent over the 28-year simulation period.
