The Venus Project
The Best Solution We Know
A well conceived total systems approach that provides for and nurtures all life on Earth.
The Soul Twins endorse The Venus Project as the best plan (and hope!) we are aware of for humanity to at last thrive as one. Their concept of a Resource-Based Economy allows us to acknowledge that we all belong to the same human family, declare all of Earth’s resources the common heritage of us all, and support everyone to the best of our ability by employing intelligence with the most effective technologies.
The founders of The Venus Project have been hard at work for over 40 years developing the value system, education modules, physical plans, and so much more for this proposed future “beyond politics, poverty, and war”. Join us in supporting their mission of building The Center for Resource Management by learning more, volunteering if possible, donating if you have those resources, and promoting the concept with others.
A World Worth Imagining; Jacque Fresco – The Man with the Plan
A documentary on the life’s work of late, legendary visionary Jacque Fresco, founder of The Venus Project. The movie features never before seen archival footage and the inspirational last interview of his life.
In this intimate face-to-face, Jacque Fresco shares with S.O.U.L. founder Evan Hirsch how he devoted his entire life to comprehensively designing a robust, workable potential tomorrow for our human family and planet. In this half-hour documentary, Jacque, who had just turned 101 years old, gives us a glimmer of hope as he describes the conditions needed for people to peacefully co-exist in a world without exploitation and abuse of one another. He lays out a bold new social design in which war and territorial disputes are things of the past, and where the true meaning of love and spirituality are manifested by translating them into a working reality. We also hear from Roxanne Meadows, co-founder of The Venus Project, and Jacque's partner for over four decades, who is now at the helm of The Venus Project.
After watching this film, you may just feel you had sat with an extremely wise elder who, although facing the ravages of old age, was determined to share what he feels is necessary for humanity to grow up in order for us to survive and thrive as a species. You will glimpse a portion of the work he accomplished in his lifetime, which gives us an alternative path for society to take, solving many of our monumental problems. He also spent his entire life as a teacher so others could understand the validity of this new social direction which benefits all of humanity. It is our hope that you will come away with this understanding and look into and work with The Venus Project as well.
As this passionate man obviously devoted his life to designing something much more nurturing, harmonious, and sustainable for our human family, it seems the least we can do for him, his legacy, and our future, is to see his designs move from conceptualization to realization.
S.O.U.L. Visits with Jacque and Roxanne
Being big supporters of them, S.O.U.L. felt it was important to meet Jacque and Roxanne in person and experience their facility first hand. Following their sense of urgency, in March, 2017 (which turned out to be two months before the passing of Jacque Fresco) we spent a few days at the Venus Project, learned so much, and were reinvigorated with inspiration for helping them bring the project to the next phase. Enjoy these photos of our visit.
When launching the documentary about The Venus Project, Roxanne Meadows, who is featured in the film, came to visit and speak at the theatrical premiere. We had another opportunity to interview her at length to discuss some of the finer points of the concepts she and Jacque Fresco developed over the course of over four decades they were together working on The Venus Project.
