The COVID-19 pandemic is the 1st truly global crisis. Beyond the loss of life, there are numerous far-reaching consequences such as human seclusion, suffering, economic distress and a sense of helplessness. COVID-19 is changing things on a personal, professional, social, economic and simply human level.
In response to the current crisis, the Global Cash Community has joined forces to develop an initiative called HUMANIA that will enable each and every member of the community to help and make a real difference for millions of people. HUMANIA is a global platform for the cash community to work together and through their collective efforts, achieve more than acting as individuals.
HUMANIA is all about restoring hope and supporting the people in society who have been most affected by the Covid-19 pandemic in their efforts to recover and rebuild. HUMANIA aims to achieve this by:
The diversity of our community is our strength. Most of us already have ideas about how we can help others who are suffering during this crisis. These ideas will most likely be specific to your region, culture or scope of operations. HUMANIA will empower you to convert your ideas into reality and gain the support for the global community. Our social responsibilities extend beyond the places where we live and work to the actual people who depend on cash to survive, exchange and simply exist as fellow humans. HUMANIA is the global cash community’s social responsibility platform allowing us all to engage, contribute and ‘give something back’ to our world.
HUMANIA will start with the launch of HUMANIACURRENCY. This initiative will facilitate those willing to help, via design activity, to join forces and leverage their design skills as a valuable asset to help reconstruction, post Covid-19. HUMANIACURRENCY is a framework to facilitate the design of currency (banknotes and coins), celebrating and paying tribute to the people, spirit and collective solidarity of humanity during the Covid-19 pandemic. HUMANIACURRENCY designs will not actually become or replace circulating currency.
HUMANIACURRENCY is open to all organisations within the cash community and we count on industry-wide support to make HUMANIACURRENCY a success. Since we all share a collective responsibility, we invite all stakeholders in the cash community to support the initiative. Stakeholders can participate either as individual organisations or through industry associations.
HUMANIA is not limited in its reach or scope to helping society during the COVID-19 crisis. HUMANIA is a scalable infrastructure that can adapt to global, national, regional and even micro social requirements. HUMANIA is a new way of engaging with our world and demonstrating our social responsibilities through affirmative action when and where it is needed most.
The HUMANIA website is currently under construction and will go live in early December 2020. You can register right now to participate in HUMANIACURRENCY or simply find out more about this unique project by visiting www.HUMANIACURRENCY.com in a few short weeks.
