If you could do anything...
Is moon as beautiful there as it is here?

I'm planning to go to the World Social Forum in Belém, in January. It's an incredible opportunity to gather a group of similarly motivated people to help me help the world.

If you could do anything to make the world a better place for 6 months, what would you do?

Say you have at least four other people working with you, containing any skills you might want, and that you don't need to earn money-- in fact, you can work 20 hours a week from anywhere and have $2000 a month to support something more expensive. What would you do?

At the Forum, I'll carry around a colorful cardboard sign, to attract people to my projects. On one side, I'll advertise for people to join me in buying a sustainable bus, like BioTour, to travel around South America in. But the other side? Who knows. Maybe I'll make the bus a mobile medical center. Maybe I'll start a new web 2.0 project to make it natural to live green. Maybe I'll start a learning/teaching/community and craft center. I need more ideas!

The project doesn't need to fit in with my sustainable bus plan, but it'd be nice. It also doesn't need to involve me leaving Brazil for the 6 months before I can get another visa, and then return here-- but that'd be ideal.

How I'd help the world

Mobile spay/neuter and rabies vax clinic.

Rabies is a huge public health problem for much of the world and stray dogs are one of the major carries in third world countries. A mobile clinic would help control rabies, the stray population and help educate people about proper pet care and the dangers of stray animals.

Ooo, interesting. I hadn't thought about it, but there are stray animals everywhere here, and I bet rabies is rampant.
