What we're about
SMILE ~ CHANGE ~ UNPLUG_\!/
Welcome to LOHHAS - the meetup group to discover a Lifestyle Of Health Happiness And Sustainability_\!/
SOCIAL SHARING GROUP
Our main purpose is to try and meet FACE-to-FACE to SHARE STORIES, life experiences, ideas and insights on how to be HEALTHIER and HAPPIER in our lives as the world rapidly changes around us.
3 FINGER WEDNESDAY
We try to make Wednesday, the 3rd day of the week a little special ... sometimes we meet and eat at a restaurant, play at a game room, gratefully accept someone's hospitality in their home, encourage each other to attend another related meetup group, picnic together in a public park, enjoy a topical presentation at a public venue or simply keep in touch and share our thoughts, experiences and relevant information through online social networks. (but not during 3 hours of Face-to-Face!)
WE STARTED IN BEIJING, BUT PLEASE JOIN AND REPORT FROM ANYWHERE
Meetup is great, but not everyone can access it in China - so we encourage you to use your favourite social platform, WeChat, Facebook, Linkedin, twitter, QQ, Weibo, etc. to get together with your friends and tell us who you are, and the STORY of what you're doing about LOHHAS in your local community.
LOHHAS MEETUP IS TOTALLY FREE and WITHOUT OBLIGATION, (But we do ask you to "do the right thing" and purchase something where we are meeting, or bring something to share with the group in a NON-COMMERCIAL setting)
Of course you are not obligated to ACTUALLY DO ANYTHING at a LOHHAS meetup, including share the 3 Finger Sustainability Symbol and it's philosophies, but even if you leave early or only come once, we do want you to at least understand the BASIC philosophy and objectives behind our project - the "World Sustainability Project".
...So you are welcome to just come and listen for a few minutes or stay as long as you want to remain together.
YOU HAVE THE POWER TO BE PART OF THE HAPPY SOLUTION
Simply put, when we share the 3 Finger "Sustainability Symbol" with a big smile, we're showing others that we are "thinking people" and trying to be "Part Of the Solution" (POS) and less "Part Of the Problem!" (POP). We want to show the world that there is an alternative to the negative, end-of-the-world, "doom and gloom" messages all around us...
THERE ARE THINGS EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US CAN DO_\!/
Join the FUN ~ Peace Plus One_\!/ ...start your journey to become a Model Of Sustainability - experience the HAPPY, POSITIVE, ATTRACTIVE side of ourselves, promote and attract the best into your life_\!/
LIVE A MEANINGFUL LIFE
The 3 Finger Symbol means "Balance" and everyone who wants to live a healthier, happier lifestyle understands that we need more "Balance and Harmony" in our lives.
THINK 3 WAYS
Specifically, the 3 Fingers also represents "Society ~ Environment ~ Economy" (in balance) or for traditionalists "Tian ~ Di ~ Ren, He" (天地人） or SKY ~ EARTH ~ HUMANITY, Harmony. Come and find out all the meanings and methods of sharing 3 Finger Philosophy_
WE DO HAVE A MISSION
Only a few months away is the December United Nations Climate Change Meeting in PARIS. You've probably heard that this is the MOST IMPORTANT MEETING IN WORLD HISTORY... our leaders are literally deciding the fate of your children and their children's children. Important not because it is about politics, war, hunger or money, but because the outcome of the meeting will affect every human being on the Planet Earth from this day forward... and (hopefully in a POSITIVE WAY) for many generations into the future.
Q: WHAT ARE YOU DOING FOR YOUR FUTURE AND YOUR CHILDREN'S FUTURE?
Pick up many publications these days and you see information changing "tune" from hyper-consumption to a positive focus on health, happiness and sustainable living (LOHHAS)... why? ...because most of the "deniers" of climate change have run out of lies, excuses, political capital and basic trickery used to deceive and keep the truth from you for the last two generations!
CONSUMPTION IS NOT THE CURE FOR LONELINESS
Now they're scared. This very real fear of retribution has caused the deniers to CYA, switch their positions and now they say that their products and technology is the the solution to future problems, when in fact it is the cause. Deniers now worry that long after you have forgotten about the latest car, gadget or fashion you will will remember their lies and blame them for your children's future suffering.
YOU ARE THE SOLUTION
Our World Sustainability Project (http://www.WorldSustainability.Org), LOHHAS APP (http://www.LOHHAS.com) and Silk Roadmap to PARIS (http://www.SilkRoadtoPARIS.com) are about how we, as citizens of the world-wide Republic Of Conscience (http://www.RepublicOfConscience.com), are taking steps NOW to live a SIMPLER, MORE MEANINGFUL Lifestyle Of Health, Happiness And Sustainability (LOHHAS).
AND WE HAVE A PLAN...
The 1st part of the plan is to recognize and REWARD PEOPLE who SHARE their Part Of the Solution (Selfie3.com ) to make the world better than they found it.
The 2nd part of the plan is to identify, assist, support and AWARD SOCIAL ENTERPRISES (PlanetPreneur.com) to balance against the multinationals and encourage meaningful employment and local sustainability.
The 3rd part of the plan is reward unselfish, REAL world leaders with our support and loyalty in their efforts to protect our one and only home, Earth.
