The Treasure Earth Challenge
The earth, the sea, and the air are the concern of every nation.
And science, technology, and education can be the ally of every nation.
Never before has man had such capacity to control his own environment, to end thirst and hunger, to conquer poverty and disease, to banish illiteracy and massive human misery. We have the power to make this the best generation of mankind in the history of the world – or to make it the last……
John F. Kennedy
The Treasure Earth challenge, just like planet earth, is for everyone regardless of status, identity or belief. Regardless therefore of our status, identity or belief and no matter how our clever scientists explain the creation of the world, don’t we see ∗ Jehovah our God in every microscopic particle and the very DNA that governs every legitimate and natural scientific process by which the world and life itself were created?
∗ ‘Jehovah’ is God’s personal name (YHWH) and His original name as referred to over 7,000 times in the original Hebrew bible.
Is there any part of legitimate or natural science or indeed the universe that is not part of His magnificent creation as He intended? Isn’t true science intended for the benefit of mankind, for the preservation of planet earth and to safeguard our entire universe and not for their destruction? Have you ever noticed when you stand in an area of natural, unspoiled beauty that paradise is in evidence all around us where we live in harmony and where we treasure planet earth?
We are all familiar with the concept of the apocalypse whether we believe in it or not, but we may not be aware that part of the intended purpose is to restore mankind and planet earth to our original state of Paradise. However, while far be it for us to defy prophecy, shortly before His ascension Jesus Christ also promised us:
The Holy Bible
The Words of Jesus Christ
12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing,
and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.
His Words present a powerfully compelling argument as to whether if together we start to believe in Him and to follow Him and to restore planet earth to its original state of paradise, might we avert any kind of apocalypse altogether? Don’t be too quick to dismiss this out of hand, exercise your freedom of thought and opinion and keep an open mind…
The Holy Bible
The Words of Jehovah, Lord God of Abraham
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord,
“Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.
13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
14 I will be found by you,” declares the Lord.
The Holy Bible
The Revelation given by the Angel to John, Apostle of Jesus Christ
1 Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life,
as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb
2 down the middle of the great street of the city.
On either side of the river stood the tree of life,
bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit each month
And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.
The Holy Bible
Epilogue: Invitation and Warning
13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the beginning and the End.
16 “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches.
I am the Root and the offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.”
The Holy Bible
The Word of Jesus Christ
16 For God so loved the world that he gave His one and only Son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
17 For God did not send His son to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.
Treasure Earth Paradigm Prizes fuel the debate and challenge mindset and perception to drive pioneering innovation. They incentivise major change and that paradigm shift from ‘if’ to ‘how’ to peacefully and more profitably resolve critical issues of the 21st century such as global conflict and global warming championing CSR and humanitarian care.
Paradigm Prizes inspire innovation and reward pioneering solutions that simultaneously avoid financial losses while generating far greater financial gains to bolster the moral and ethical imperative for change. Prizes will be awarded to the most exceptional and groundbreaking solutions demonstrating how Governments, investors and the defence, fossil fuel, nuclear, automotive and indeed all industry can more profitably transition away from weapons and pollutants to the more profitable provision of products and services in pursuit of peace, climate management, CSR and humanitarian care.

The Care Prize
Care expressed as nurture, empathy and compassion empowers healing not only in a medical capacity but as the glue that cements family and the very fabric of society together.
Care is as key to peace and to tending planet earth as to life itself, which is why our Humanitarian Care Prizes and the Signature Nurse’s Prize in particular, are our first, our flagship and our Signature Prizes.
The Signature Nurse’s Prize
In an increasingly high-tech, commercialised world we must cherish and not lose site of that unique quality the ‘human touch’ in nurse-led professional care and in the personal care we give to others and that cannot be substituted by drugs or medication.
The Signature Nurse’s Prize therefore, is both a people’s prize and a nurse’s prize awarded to nurses who have given exceptional humanitarian and medical care in lifelong dedication above and beyond the call of duty in both a professional and personal capacity.
The Peace Prize
1} Supports UN negotiated and phased global nuclear, military and multilateral disarmament underpinned by a robust, apolitical, non-combative global monitoring system and a comprehensive globally binding convention to reinvigorate nations’ commitment to the UDHR (Universal Declaration of Human Rights) and the rule of law.
2} Supports an apolitical and universal global security system that monitors peace-time and alerts against hostile attack and can deactivate hostile weaponry at source but not to react destructively in any capacity to injure, maim or destroy human life or the environment.
3} Supports re-allocation of the $1.7 trillion global defense budget to more profitably invigorate the global economy, combat youth unemployment, address the refugee crisis and the root causes of global conflict by championing CSR, the UDHR and humanitarian care.
The Climate Prize
The Climate Prize incentivises entrepreneurialism, drives innovation and rewards pioneering solutions for more profitable and environmentally safe alternatives to fossil and nuclear fuels and other global pollutants to combat global warming and other environmental hazards.
The CSR Prize
The Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Prize joins CSR, human rights, ESCR and environmental rights hand in hand with business and governments together to set a global benchmark CSR footprint for business, governments and consumers.
New challenges will bring new prizes for Peace, Climate, Humanitarian Care and CSR and to be announced at a future date.
“The long labour of peace is an undertaking for every nation – and in this effort none of us can remain unaligned. To this goal none can be uncommitted. … Chronic disputes which divert precious resources from the needs of the people or drain the energies of both sides assist the interests of no one – and the badge of responsibility in the modern world is a willingness to seek peaceful solutions.…In these and other ways, let us move up the steep and difficult path toward comprehensive disarmament, securing mutual confidence through mutual verification, and building the institutions of peace as we dismantle the engines of war. We must not let failure to agree on all points hold up agreements where agreement is possible.”
John F. Kennedy
“But peace does not rest in charters and covenants alone. It lies in the hearts and minds of all people. And if it is cast out there, then no act, no pact, no treaty, no organization can hope to preserve it without the support and the wholehearted commitment of all people. So let us not rest all our hopes on parchment and on paper; let us strive to build peace, a desire for peace, a willingness to work for peace, in the hearts and minds of all our people.”
John F. Kennedy
