The goal of the IOWA XPROJECT is to be a model for the future of agriculture, and regenerative living. It has built into it a “domino effect” that will regenerate the health of our nation and our socio-eco-polity systems They are all connected. We chose Iowa because it was recently determined by the US News and World Report to be the best state in the nation to live in, based on a variety of criteria. And Iowa has a goal to be the healthiest state in the nation. But the state’s water quality, addiction to industrialized agriculture, animal confinement farms, and on-going erosion of precious topsoil has made Iowa Ground Zero for a model of REGENERATIVE change.
As we launch The IOWA XPROJECT, we’re also giving birth to Regeneration Nation™ and a 50 state initiative that starts in the Midwest to advance agriculture and 21stCentury living into a “new regenerative culture.” This culture makes scientists and “foodies” of us all and integrates soil management with precision farming and big-data to help cool the planet while healing our communities with the medicine of food and consumer education. This holistic approach applies farming principles, and production practices that increase biodiversity, enriches soils, improves watersheds and water quality, while enhancing natural ecosystems, and producing nutrient-dense food to “heal the health” of our world. From the soil and ground up we can build a healthy global economy, and robust local economies that can be sustained.
For 2018 and 2020 we will be introducing a state-of-the-art social-mobile platform and digital information system to establish a “true” democracy with local and national issues and political representation. MiVote Iowa and MiVoice USA are inclusive platforms that empower individuals to make informed decisions and choices for the future they value and want to see built and legislated. MiVote gives an equal-informed vote to everyone.
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
On September 25, 2015, 193 countries multilaterally adopted a set of ambitious goals to end poverty and hunger, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all by 2030. While our initiatives are primarily focused on health and well-being through the advocacy of clean water, good nutritious food and responsible agriculture, efforts to achieve these goals through innovative public-private partnerships also profoundly impact additional objectives represented by the SDGs, including education, clean energy, resilient infrastructure, economic prosperity, healthy ecosystems, climate action and sustainable communities.
