basic survival in nature (end of winter)
how to find shelter
- There are also "mini leaders". These mini leaders are contestants that choose to participate in smaller individual events.
finding shelter Government - doctors, nurses, paramedics, farmers, educators, hunters, fishers, blacksmiths, babysitters, cemetery maintenance, and ground keepers, tailors
- all jobs belong to one of the four categories
- all employment plans are ran by the parliament so no excess jobs are created
- all businesses are operated privately meaning all profit goes to the individual
- wages are determined by the amount of work put in Employment Employment Rules/ Responsibilities 1. Don't kill other humans
2. Don't steal
3. A maximum of two kids per family - Ages 5-15 go to school 5 times a week from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm
- Kids in the community start school at a later age so that they are properly disciplined at home.
- School starts later so kids can help their parents with chores in the morning.
- Age 10 kids are expected to start volunteering around the community. They are allowed to choose where they want to volunteer.
- After age 15 kids are assigned a mentor for a job they want. They must spend a minimum of two years with this mentor. Children Responsibility - First two laws are morally justified
- Law 1 and 3 were made to maintain population
- Our community stabilizes the population at 200
- Having a controlled population maintains our use of resources, which keeps our community sustainable. - 2 main responsibilities
being a mentor
looking after the young
- the second responsibility only applies to elders who can still look after themselves
- people in the community are expected to live up to an average of 85 years
- at age 65 you are allowed special treatment and reserved a spot in the old folk's home in case of emergencies - Adults are required to work a minimum of 5 days per week for 5 hours a day
- Adults should be able to provide nourishment to a maximum of two children
- Some adults are mentors Adult Responsibility Elder's Responsibility - We have a private medical system that is only for our community
- Herbs are mostly used as remedies
- Herbs are often made into teas or they are put in the steam hut Medicine - has anti inflammatory properties
- promotes immune system health
- improves memory
- controls cholesterol levels Ginseng - reduces inflammation when your respiratory, genitourinary, and digestive systems are infected Goldenseal - helps with skin, an anti-inflammatory and a sedative
- can be used a sedative when someone is attacked by a bear and needs to be calmed down Bloodroot - Slippery Elm is the inner bark of a deciduous tree
- helps with stomach pains and diarrhea "Slippery Elm" - Helps with upset stomachs Chamomile - after mothers have two children they must start to consume wild ginger everyday because it acts as birth control Birth Control - doctors, nurses, paramedics, and babysitters
- doctors and nurses work at the hospital and old folk's home
- paramedics are associated with the hospital and help those who are hurt and cannot be transported to the hospital in time
- babysitters operate the daycare and look after kids while their parents are away Medicine - gatherers, hunters, fishers, tailors, and the blacksmith are all part of physical production Physical Production - janitorial activities
- making sure the water wheel operates correctly, managing the cemetery, planting trees, and watering gardens
- this is the department in which volunteer hours are served by the people attending behavioural camps Maintenance - most important department
- an educator can be a; mentor, teacher, member of parliament, or even a family member
- these are the people that help educate the younger ones
- people who look after camps are also educators
- this is the most important department because this is how everyone is educated for their new job. After the student attends school from age 5-15 they are assigned a mentor. The mentor then takes them under their wing and teaches them everything they know about the job. Education - gatherers are administrated by medicine mini-leaders and collect; berries, fruits, medical herbs, and firewood - hunters hunt in the surrounding area for deer, some bears, and the occasional moose - farmers have crops for cotton, once the cotton is grown it is sold in the market - tailors use wood looms to weave the cotton to produce clothing, they buy the cotton from the market - the blacksmith makes weapons our of metals that are mined by a nearby community - Kids go to school from ages 5-15
- The reason why kids start school later is so that they can learn proper etiquette before attending school
- The schools have an individual room for each mandatory class and one big room for assemblies
- Mandatory classes:
Basic Survival Education - communication is necessary for trade and building strong relationships with other people in the community
- the objective of this class is to improve the students' talking and explaining of things
- this class is required if you want to become a mentor Communication - The law class is a way of reinforcing the major rules of the community.
- This class is mandatory because we believe it's important that they know the rules at a young age so when they are older they'll become a good citizen. Law - The medical class covers procedures for common illnesses like; fever, poison ivy, food poisoning, and allergic reactions
- Procedures for emergencies are also taught Medicine - The main goal of this class is to be able to count copper coins accurately.
- The reason why mathematical skills are so held back is because if math gets complex so does technology. Our society is trying to avoid technology and stay sustainable. Basic Mathematics 8+9=17 - This class is the most important class and is taught by the leader of the society.
- Students are taught to fish, hunt, build shelter, and make fires.
- Children ages 12-15 are taught how to predict weather. This is very important when you consider how to build shelter. Basic Survival - Compared to the Canadian dollar our coins are half the size. We use small coins in attempt to preserve earth's resources.
- Our coins are from the community across the bridge because their community is mining based
- The coins are simple copper coins with a symbol on them indicating how much they weigh. The heavier the coin the more value it has. Currency - After the coins are minted they are sent to parliament.
- The main leader then distributes the coins to the mini leaders. The mini leaders are in charge of many jobs and have to also pay their employees.
- Those employees go and buy things in the market making the currency flow through the community. Currency Flow - Our government pays special money for those who cannot work due to illnesses or injuries. Welfare Tree Planting Environmental Committee Good for accidental forest fire Daily pH level testing for the river When a tree is cut down two new ones are planted The committee meets twice a week at the survival classroom (cc) photo by theaucitron on Flickr (cc) photo by theaucitron on Flickr Environment - walking is the main form of transportation
- wagons are used on dirt roads for transporting
things at the market place
- stretcher like wagons are used by paramedics
- water gardens are put in next to the roads in the
ditches Transportation Increases Biodiversity Higher regeneration rate Water - water wheel is used Recreation Outside Influences Survival Based Activities: Fishing, Hunting, Swimming Fun Based Activities: wooden chess, ball games, building play forts Our society is self-supporting and independent.
- For food we have many farmers, gatherers, and hunters.
- We don't create much waste and use as much of the animals we hunt. (we use the skin and hide for clothes and recreational equipment.
Trade happens mostly with the mining community for metals
(iron for weapons, copper for coins)
People are allowed to visit/leave as they wish Art Based Activities: dancing, singing, wooden xylophone, drums
