DescriptionForge new relationships between Responsible Corporations and our new program: GAIANistas. (GAIAN as an inhabitant of our living mother planet, called GAIA, and ista, from the Italian: barista - bar tender. A GAIANista then, is an active EARTH tender).
— people and organizations that are aware, active and responsible global citizens — engaged in creating a thriving and sustainable future.
Anyone committed to the process of creating a vibrant future for all humans on our little living spacestation, Earth, can be considered a GAIANista.
We have begun planning for a Global community of GAIANistas and GAIANista Villages.
As EARTH is an incomprehensibly complex megasystem, our survival and wellbeing as a species is contingent on the health of a multitude of subsystems. We endorse, support and amplify the work and commitment of those working on specific facets of a thriving future: from business people, scientists and academics, from students of all ages to cosmologists, to agronomists to shamans. We honor and acknowledge those as an essential part of the process of loving awareness of our individual majesty, and right to live with health, peace and joy.
Our short term goal is to enroll an initial collection of, preferably well known, corporations as members.
Sponsorship includes a subscription to special areas of our website and our interactive Magazine, YourEARTH—YourFUTURE; the voice and basecamp for GAIANistas, where they can declare and share their position of responsible corporate behavior plus engage with the whole Earth system and it’s multitude of facets pertaining to creating a viable future for humans on our small living planet. Includes listing with Logo and contact in our publications. Other requests are negotiable.
They may also choose to be advertisers, partners or sponsors. We can give you a percentage of their contribution... like 20% of $10,000 for a large corporate membership. Sponsorships for specific programs could be more — percentage would go to 15%.
We welcome stories about their work for international distribution in magazine as well as “deals” with appropriate products and services for members.
Your responsibility will be to establish working relationships with green nonprofits. Our first concern is to capture a dozen or so “names”..to give us credibility. Can be members for a year free. [Maybe first 20]
ResponsibilitiesContact, establish and maintain partnerships or sponsorships. Possibility of a long term engagement in this or a parallel position. Have some supporting graphic and textural material, including preliminary first issue of iMagazine. We can work together on a script if necessary. Must capture pertinent data on contacts.
We can work together to gather a call list.
