Activity Report: February & March, 2020

Greetings and welcome to the God’s Way Ltd Activity Report covering work periods during February and March 2020.

As usual there has been a hive of activity and what is shared in this post is only a brief overview of the project-based activities during these work periods. Please keep in mind that there are many other things going on simultaneously, such as personal interactions, discoveries, experiences and feedback, which are not always reported but often take up the time of the Founding Members and Directors, and are essential to upholding love and the Company Constitution.

Activity Report: Work Period Beginning January 13, 2020

Hello & welcome to the God’s Way Ltd Activity Report for the work period January 13th – 24th, 2020.

Since mid-2019, God’s Way organisation has worked on a fortnightly rotation work schedule. This means that most “full time” volunteers work on God’s Way projects for 12 days per month and have 16 days for spiritual development and working on personal projects. The directors and founding members often work longer than the 12 days, depending on what projects are happening at the time. And there are more casual volunteers who give their time for one or two days a week or fortnight.

While this arrangement has worked reasonably well, the directors have recently decided to trial a new work schedule for company volunteers commencing in March 2020.

Scientific Research: Compelling Evidence in Support of Plant-Based Diet

A scientific journal article published in 2018 contained compelling scientific evidence that eating a plant-based diet, which excludes meat and animal products, is better for the environment.

The study, Reducing food’s environmental impacts through producers and consumers, conducted by Joesph Poore & Thomas Nemecek, gathered data on the environmental impacts of food produced on farms (primary producers of meat, fish, grains, fruit & vegetables), processors (food manufacturers and processing plants), food packaging plants and retailers.

Research Article Abstract

“Food’s environmental impacts are created by millions of diverse producers. To identify solutions that are effective under this heterogeneity, we consolidated data covering five environmental indicators; 38,700 farms; and 1600 processors, packaging types, and retailers. Impact can vary 50-fold among producers of the same product, creating substantial mitigation opportunities. However, mitigation is complicated by trade-offs, multiple ways for producers to achieve low impacts, and interactions throughout the supply chain. Producers have limits on how far they can reduce impacts. Most strikingly, impacts of the lowest-impact animal products typically exceed those of vegetable substitutes, providing new evidence for the importance of dietary change. Cumulatively, our findings support an approach where producers monitor their own impacts, flexibly meet environmental targets by choosing from multiple practices, and communicate their impacts to consumers.”
