Part Two: Proposals and Projects

By Martí Olivella
Barcelona, April 20, 2003


A Projects Office.
The Alliance process has not only generated a collection of proposals related to humanity’s principal challenges, it has also created a series of world networks (cross-cultural, cross-thematic and cross-socioprofessional) that can interact to turn these innovative proposals into social transformation projects which, in turn, could be a source of self-financing for their developers and a contribution to the overall funding for the Alliance.


1. Create an Alliance Projects Office, with a minimal structure: a person in charge with a promoter’s profile, and a support team ... connected via the Internet. In the future, there may be several Projects Offices.

2. Choose a Proposal Paper that we consider to be socially feasible. Choose proposals from different Proposal Papers (see later a suggestion on how to detect these proposals in a participatory manner).

3. Suggest that the author/s convert them into projects to be applied to specific socioeconomic sectors.

4. Present and promote this project before several interested social actors:

a. Companies (private, social, public) in the sector for its application. We provide a more detailed project and specific advice for its implementation.
b. Ethical funding firms (to obtain financing)
c. Consumers (to activate demand)
d. Media (for its publication)
e. Universities (to improve the project and for training purposes)
f. Governments (national, regional, local...for legal and economic support)
g. NGOs (for mobilization)
h. Alliance workshops seeking associations of different sectors, issues, and countries

5. The product of the “sale” of the product and the advisory service could be divided into three parts:
a. 50% for the authors and advisors of the project
b. 30% for the Projects Office (relations and promoters)
c. 20% to finance overall Alliance development projects

6. Periodically, when there are funds, the Office will call for a Remote Participatory Budget for all those involved in the Projects Plan so that they can decide on the use made of Alliance funds (publications, meetings, coordination...)

7. The Projects Office will gather the information relating to the experiences, results and difficulties related to the projects, transmitting progress reports to those involved in each project.

8. The Projects Office will have its own legal status or will start in association with an existing organization able to operate from a commercial perspective.

9. International operations, which could be calculated with a common accounting unit, could be settled when and as agreed by the stakeholders, with the possibility of adopting forms of trade for goods and services.

10. For the initial launch of the Projects Office, this plan is presented to the FPH Call for Initiatives, since we consider that it complies with its requirements.
