            This short video gives five reasons why you should read Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation. Technocracy is a replacement economic system for Capitalism and Free Enterprise, based on energy distribution and consumption rather than price-based, supply and demand. It is sponsored by the global elite through the United Nations as Sustainable Development, Agenda 21, Green Economy, Smart Grid, Smart Growth, Common Core Education Standards, and much more. Technocracy is a clear and present danger to the survival of America.

              GEN celebrating 15 years: The world in 15 years’ time A high-level dialogue to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Geneva Environment Network (GEN) was organized at the International Environment House II (7-9 chemin de Balexert) on Tuesday 20 January. Hosted by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and supported by the Swiss Federal Office of Environment, GEN – www.genevaenvironmentnetwork.org – has been, for the last fifteen years, the Geneva hub for a myriad of actors to meet and debate pressing environmental challenges. With the objective of celebrating a very diverse network, which offers interactive debates with key actors of the ‘International Geneva’, a lively panel discussion with personalities from governments, the United Nations family, NGOs, universities and foundations on how key players imagine the world will be in 15 years’ time was organized. Panelists provided visionary speeches on the state of the planet, how to best transition to a more sustainable world, and discuss the role of Geneva as global hub for environmental governance, contributing to the Post-2015 Agenda.

                      In a region where agriculture is the backbone of the people's livelihoods and culture, water is the most important resource. The Palestinian West Bank experiences shortages all over the area and trucking in water can be expensive. Olive farmers must be very careful how they use their water. Irrigated trees can yield up to 78% more olives snd 96% more olive oil than unirrigated ones. Olive Oil Without Borders participants are trained to make the most of their water through techniques designed to maximize the tree's usage and slowly decrease water use between planting and harvesting. Farmers like Jabar from the West Bank village of Salfit see the differences immediately and teach others the process. Olive Oil Without Borders is a three year collaboration between NEF and USAID, designed to promote economic cooperation and knowledge sharing between Palestinian and Israeli olive producers. Workshops, hands on training, marketing and business planning are just a few of the elements shared between the two, facilitated by NEF. The project is currently in its second three-year iteration.
