Pierre Rabhi is a French writer, farmer and environmentalist. He invented the concept of “Oasis en tous lieux” – “Oasis in any place”. He proposes a society that functions in a manner that respects populations and land and supports the development of agricultural techniques that take care of the environment preserving natural resources.
The Venus Project is an organization started by self-educated structural engineer, industrial designer, and futurist Jacque Fresco. Fresco’s project aims to restructure society through worldwide utilization of a theoretical design that he calls a resource-based economy. Those ideas use a version of sustainable cities, energy efficiency, natural resource management and advanced automation with a global socio-economic system based on social cooperation and scientific methodology.
The term resource-based economy is applied by the Venus Project to a hypothetical economy in which goods, services and information are free. This use of the term is found in information from Jacque Fresco.
