The RBE10K Project is currently planned to follow the following stages

[edit] Planning

Begun on January 2013, and is intended to finishing before the end of 2014.

  1. Create general information and engage activists and general public: begun on late January through Facebook, first in English, then Spanish, and currently working on French, introducing Portuguese, and about to implement Italian and Hebrew. Also through TZMNetwork currently only in English. The Twitter account is tweeting automatically all posts by the Facebook English page, however to date (end of Feb 2013) it has no followers.
  2. Engage participants one on one and promote participation: this is currently done by two teams in the English (Arby-e Ten-Kei) and Spanish (Eve Herrediesca) support team Facebook users. The Facebook pages in other languages, to date (end of Feb 2013) do not have support teams for their users (Fèbierre Dicca for the French page and Peiberre Deisca for the Portuguese page). The engagement so far has produced a few collaborators in areas like wiki support, coordination and support for Facebook participants and contributors, and translators for the non-English pages.
  3. Prepare the wiki for teams participation: this wiki had some basic structure at the time of project launch in January 2013. The wiki team is doing efforts for enabling the wiki for participation of teams of contributors with expertise in specific areas. Work in the wiki begun in the second week of Feb 2013.
  4. Creation of teams and inviting collaborators to participate: Teams of contributors with expertise in specific areas will collaborate documenting a variety of options to satisfy primary needs of people and requirements by other teams. Teams will interact with each-other as necessary to exchange information and support each other. The primary purpose of each team will be establishing the most effective option to satisfy their particular objectives given a number of conditions like settlement location.
  5. Producing introductory videos, an a website
  6. Engaging notable people and celebrities in supporting the project: one notable person requested for support by end of Feb 2013 and awaiting for response.
  7. Engaging universities around the world for collaboration: the social experiment will be a likely interesting subject for social sciences in Universities around the world to experiment on.
  8. Researching for suitable locations and engaging with governments: by end of Feb 2013, about 30 governments were approached via email and produced no response.

[edit] Inviting people to volunteer for the experiment

Requires the planning to be sufficiently mature and complete, and appear already like a viable plan, with a location established and most requirements costed and ready for purchasing.

  1. Engagement of a Trust bank account: once all the necessary volunteers for beginning with the purchases and the execution of the experiment, are committed and willing to contribute their corresponding monetary or materials share, three or four collaborators with banking experience, and also being trusted by several other collaborators of the project, will engage this banking service internationally. The volunteers for the experiment will then deposit their share in the Trust bank account
  2. Purchasing of materials: once all the funds expected are collected on the Trust account, the team of purchases will commence all the purchases as per the plan

[edit] Execution

The settling will occur immediately after, and the social experiment will be conducted for two years, between the beginning of 2015 and the end of 2016.

  1. Transport of first volunteers and materials: the purchases will include transport of all materials purchased; it will also include flights, and shipping if necessary, of all volunteers committed to the set-up of the settlement, from international airports
  2. Set-up of primary city infrastructure: the first volunteers, along with hired experts and companies, will set-up the main infrastructure for the city, including main buildings, energy systems, and housing
  3. Transport of remaining volunteers and materials: Should there be any remaining volunteers or materials, these will be transported from international airports and ports to location
  4. Finish setting-up of city: the city will finish its set-up, including set-up of farming systems, to be fully functional. This is expected to be no further than July 2015.
  5. Beginning of the social experiment: even though the social experiment will commence, to some degree, at the beginning of the settlement, it will be when the full infrastructure of the city is finished that the experiment will formally commence
  6. Beginning of the planning for the second city: the second city will be mostly based on the plans for the first city, however the plans will require a new location, modifications due to the new location's characteristics, and a number of updates resulting from direct experience in daily life within the community. It will also require costing and engaging with new providers of goods and services required for establishing the new city.
  7. Production of art and media material: activities in the city will be reported to social networking sites including YouTube and Facebook, on a periodic or daily basis. Artistic material will be uploaded to art sharing websites. Technical material will be contributed in a variety of ways.
  8. Inviting people to populate the current and the new cities: once the plan for the new city is sound, and the experiment seems to be a success, invitations for newcomers will commence. Half of the newcomers will be directed to the current city, and the other half to the new one.
  9. Collection of funds for the new city, and purchasing of services and materials: this process will be similar to the process at the end of the first planning stage, and ideally no later than the end of 2016.
  10. End of the experiment: One half of the population will be requested to migrate to the new city and assist with its set-up, whist the other one will remain. People and materials will be transported to the required destinations.
  11. New cycle: for each city settled, a new cycle of Execution commences at this point, with a duration of two years. These cycles will only end when none of the cities are able to find enough people from the monetary system are willing to migrate to one of these cities.
