It is also called sustainability but we at Nesseq, modest as we are, called it Eco-Eco!
The Ecological Economy!
The core of which is centered around self-help.
The employment of Inherent Energy and proven and reliable technologies can only help.
The reason why self-help is effective is simply the thought, that a capitalist won’t supply our needs if the profits cannot be maximized.
On the other hand the municipalities don’t supply our needs either.
Mostly for lack of funds but enough times because of lack of fantasy and\or
lack of will. Or because the political perspective only goes as far as the next elections.

If neither the capitalist or the municipality supply our needs, what do we do?
Wait and do nothing or are we getting organized?
We can all become micro-capitalists and find like minded in our neighborhood or city and establish the companies to supply our needs?

We at Nesseq are biased and recommend the legal form of Co-operatives.
It differs from nation to nation. But in most western societies in many of the so called 3. World co-operatives, are quite
common. But other legal forms are also possible.

The advantage of a co-operative is that many people are investing a small amount of money.
For instance 1.000 people invest 1.000 $ or € and it adds up to 1 million $/€. This is already a sum with which a lot could be done.

If it succeeds another co-operative can be established. Until a housing co-operative can build a ecological neighborhood.

In the neighborhood a Com-op can take over tasks of the municipality. This can happen in already existing neighborhoods.

In case of a failure, everyone has lost 1.000 $/€. This would hurt, but it won’t kill anyone.

But at least we have tried!

    Wetlands provide many important services to human society, but are at the same time ecologically sensitive systems. This explains why in recent years much attention has been
    focused on sustainable management strategies for wetlands.

    Both natural and social sciences can jointly contribute to an increased understanding of relevant processes and problems associated with such strategies. we have to considers the potential integration of insights and methods from natural or social sciences to better understand the interactions between economies and wetlands.

    A multidisciplinary approach can contribute to the formulation of management and institutional measures to mitigate the pressures and impacts on wetlands. To this end, attention is paid to concepts and terminology such as functions and values, frameworks and theories, and methods and models.

    Fellow Max.. I’m not much into reading, but somehow I got to look at many articles in your Nesseq Site.

    Its fantastic how interesting it is for me to visit you very often. i also like your site design very much.

    Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love learning more on this topic. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more information? It is extremely helpful for me.

    Conventional economics is increasingly criticized for failing to reflect the value of clean air and water, species diversity, and social and generational equity. By excluding biophysical and social reality from its analyses and equations, conventional economics seems ill-suited to address problems in a world characterized by increasing human impacts and decreasing natural resources.

    What makes humans and their economies unique as a sub-ecosystem is their ability, through willful effort, ignorance and human designed tools, to dramatically restructure and reform processes in ecosystems of which they are a part; and to such a magnitude that human welfare can be diminished or enhanced by those original actions.
