Sustainability .....

One thing that just became clear to me is that we don't have a choice when it comes to sustainable development and which products to support, but to support only certified biological products whenever applicable. I just thought about that wine producer in Tramonti who has one of the rarest wines around, made from vines that are partly older than 100 years, that need to be treated biologically since otherwise this very particular and rare original wine would be condemned to die out ... and I watched a very interesting service by Spiegel TV (Germany). Only the original ways of production will lead to origial and therefore sustainable products.

Supporting projects of other organizations

vox humanitatis works on a no doubled efforts principle and therefore our major aim is to co-operate as closely as possible with projects from other organizations that do what is necessary to reach our goals. This means that we are very much interested in them doing well and of course this leads to us supporting their fundraising activities where we can, such as adding a button that leads to their donation page during their fundraiser period. Many of our members are/will be involved anyway in these projects and there fore this way of dealing with it makes perfect sense.

If you feel you have a project that meets our scope, please contact us and we will look into it. It really does not make sense to double work. It is essential that our time is invested in such a way that all of us get the most out of it.

Introducing vox humanitatis

vox humanitatis is going to be a not for profit organisation that cares about less resourced languages and culture (scope). We start from maintaining the languages, creating contents in the various languages and localizing software going the way of the so-called cultural localization. Many connected activities will help us to survive as an association.

We will start to blog about these activities here every now and then.
