Homeshores-Direct™: A Festival of World Cultures 365™
SHARED GOALS STATEMENT: What We Plan & Do
"Enable any online Community Co-operative or M-SME Start-ups to be 'born global', to co-create, promote and deliver innovative, added value traded services to fill the unsatisfied demand worldwide for culture and language-literate services; through creation of a network of micro-franchised local Village Hubs ('E-CO Hubs') and global Community Outlets, backed by authorised Master Franchised and central Digital Hub services to deliver Microfinance, remote Education and Co-op services in our unique Point-of-sale display concepts".
This will be achieved through implementation of the following seven Smart Goal steps:
1. Establish ICCO Co-op Entity, an International Community Co-operative Organisation, in Ireland by end of 2012
2. Startup with VoxLABS™ E-Business Model, in 7 steps: To Reachout to new customer audience, Differentiate your product, and for Pricing, Selling, Delivery & Distribution, Supporting Customers and Achieving customer satisfaction.
3. Go Global Simultaneously: To Co-found a live Chapter in all seven regions together with VoxWorld™.Coop™ within 12 months of founding ICCO - in Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, China, India, Africa and Latin America Caribbean.
4. Build ten ICB Brands: Introduce these online Interactive Community Brands (ICB) before end 2013 - 7 x Regional Vox brands together with Smart World, Artisans World & EriuVox.
5. Open Community Branded Worldshops: By 2014 to have an independent, Fair Trade standard Worldshop network across all 7 Regions at VoxWorld©.Coop™ Outlets (OMEGAPoints™) and with distribution from VoxFRANCHISE™ enabled Village Hubs (ALPHApoints™) while utilising VoxLABS™ patented model and services.
6. Extend Regional Community coverage to National Chapters - By 2015 to have a Community Chapter network established in at least 100 Countries, across all 7 Regions, with a minimum membership of 100,000 per country.
7. Generate ubiquitous coverage worldwide thereafter - To raise the standard of living for the Unemployed, Low Income Earners, Less Well Educated, Ageing Populations in every Community and underserved, excluded or disenfranchised Communities worldwide.
Why not Share in these common Goals with other Communities, is it What you want to do too?. Why not become your local Village Champion - either social, economic, financial or digital.? Lets build this World Community Co-op together, every step of the way.
|SOCIAL INNOVATION DEFINITION: "A Novel Solution to a Social Problem that is 'more effective, efficient and sustainable' than the existing Solution, for which the Value Created accrues primarily to Society as a whole rather than to Private Individuals". Kriss Deiglmeier, Center of Social Innovation (Stanford, USA).
FROM DOTCOM BUST TO DOTCOOP BOOM - The Way Forward in Social Innovation
Opening a Social E-Commerce Marketplace where every E-CO Hub can deliver innovative traded-services opportunities from home, direct to their own Diaspora and other E-CO Hubs globally; to provide collaborative, enabling and ICT based services from any Community through social Innovation, remote Education, Micro-Finance and Traded-Services that will take Communities from DotCom Bust of a decade or more ago and into the current DotCoop Boom period emerging from this digitally driven age with Innovative Economy services that embrace local Culture and Language.
Every Country is essentially a Nation of Communities, and virtually all are people reside in Villages somewhere. So what happens when the Co-op Movement joins forces with the growing TeleCentre Movement in those Villages? They can create a E-Coop, where Jobs are generated and Trades are enabled. What kind of Jobs & Trade then? Smart E- Jobs and E-Traded-services exports. With what Content? Local Culture Content, led by Homecoming Tourism, Sustainable Tourism & Culture Tourism. Who are the prime target Audience for these traded-services? Their own Diaspora, who always 'belong' to their motherland, to where they were born (as so well articulated by late author John O' Donohue in Eternal Echoes) and those acting too as Cultural Ambassadors, with outreach to their new Diaspora Communities in their new neighbourhoods in other countries. How can these services be delivered? Online, Offline or over Mobile/ Smartcell, whichever local capability and capacity allows. What is the Centrepoint of these activities in the Local Villages? The Vill@ge C.A.F.E.™ at any Third/ Social Sector Org near you - led by Cooperatives, Socila Enterprise Centres & Volunteer Groups. So what new roles do The Vill@ge C.A.F.E.™ need to play? Provide virtual TeleCentre Services with local Culture Showcases in micro, small or large sizes. How will it expand on current TeleCentre offerings, where there is one already in your Village?. Provision of more online tutors for delivery remote LifeWork Education courses, initiated with Computer & other Literacy/ Capability Skills (eg. FDIC Money Smart™....); also for Development Training Workshops and for promotion of Social Purchasing-driven personalised Online Shops. And what role does the E-Coop play in the The Vill@ge C.A.F.E.™? To broaden their horizons from products alone and to embrace traded-services, in a new kind of new era business, and to focus on a global marketplace where there is a vast latent demand opportunity among their own Diaspora for services in the Social E-Commerce Marketplace. What new role do Villages themselves need to play then? To create the environment by 'building' a virtual Community Development Hub, the so-called 'E-CO Hub'. What roles do Individuals need to play? To bring their own new, innovative ideas and with assistance of E-CO Hubs to develop them into a Livelihood with Smart Jobs or by opening their own Traded-Services businesses. How do these businesses differ? - virtual businesses with none of the traditional and unnecessary costs any longer required, operating if desired from home, selling into a global market where there is a global shortage of services; having an advantage of in the pre-requisite language and with cultural empathy. What will all that achieve? It will create a Community's own Jobs/ Trades, open a road out of poverty to a better way of life; and together they can create an E-Coop or DotCoop (.Coop™) Boom period. This in the end is All About People, in the Villages and living within their Global Communities - no longer is it about Economies, it's All about People and development of their own innovative Ideas.
To quote Charles Leadbetter: "In the Economy of Things you are on your own. In the Economy of Ideas, you are what you Share".

VoxLABS™ MODEL©: A new virtual E-Business model dedicated to creation of Virtual Communities in the Sm'art Social Marketplace; where VoxFRANCHISE™ is a sister franchisor that enables the bringing together of Community Service Providers as content providers from Multi-National Corps, Globally Integrated Enterprises, Co-ops, Credit Unions, Banks, Colleges, Global & Culture Brands, M-SME's, Causes & Movements as well as prioritising Interactive Community Brands - all for delivery through VoxLABS™ Franchised Outlets @ VoxWorld©.Coop™.

Sm'art Social Purchasing™ where you can proceed to open either smallest shop in shop in the world, VoxLABS™ Shopper Stopper in store; or one that can grow until you have open access for your Sm'art Community to the biggest, virtually untapped, latent Marketplace in the world - the Social Marketplace, one that is inhabited by about 4 Billion people. The recent financial collapse worldwide is the Awakening call that heralded the arrival of this very different and Community-driven era. There within, significant latent needs lie largely unmet for everything from accessible, affordable and convenient low cost (and free) money transfers, bank accounts, financial services (including insurance & mortgages that meet their needs), cellphones, ICT Kits; but even more so - for remote education, millions of Jobs, Traded-services & affordable shopping; and most of all - to meet the many essentials of life including food, healthcare, transport as well as the basics of life like clean water and a roof over our heads, that which many in developed world still take for granted. With the advent of Internet and Communications Technology in last decade or so - real and powerful solutions are becoming ever more available today. On closer examination, however, the developing world has as much or even more to offer the developed world - being to fill millions of skilled jobs now vacant given the global shortage of doctors, nurses, careworkers, teachers, technology-driven jobs and many others. Even more important - there is not enough funded colleges with available capacity to fill the demand that really exists in next decade and more. And, anyway, the developing world cannot afford many of these services in doctors, nurses, teachers that the developed world take for granted - they must find ways to earn the money first, and essentially that means they must have access to exports. Since there is limited production capacity among that Marketplace of those 4 billion people - they need to rely on digital products like culture, education, traded-services - and that in turn need collaborative partners in marketiing, technology, logistics, funding etc. These are all available from or through VoxLABS™ MODEL© in Ireland today. All that is needed to start is the backing of you and your community - its your initiative, so its up to each one of us to start to do something about it ourselves. The overall solution lies in "Sm'art Social Purchasing" - leveraging the power that lies within Community emigrants, migrants, diaspora and their role as ambassadors.
