Third Sector Examples

Everyday people create their own work. It proves there is a difference between a job and work. People will be involved with both old a new forms of economy.
Creative people seek funding for their projects, this creates work. Lets look at one company that helps. Remember the rock band from the 60’s caled the Zombies with Rod argent and Colin Blunstone?
PledgeMusic gives artists the tools, services and support that they need to create music, videos, merchandise, exclusive events and personalized fan experiences that, until now, has never been available in one place.
PledgeMusic does not discriminate, whether an artist is signed to a major label or an indie, are on their starting jog or victory lap, PledgeMusic is, at its core, a community of artists and fans with no boundaries. When a fan becomes a Pledger they become a part of the production team. http://www.musicpledge.com

The Minister of Chance is a Doctor Who spin-off audio series which in itself was spun-off from the BBC 2001/02 audio story Death Comes to Time which originally feature The Minister of Chance, a Time Lord and the character was originated by Stephen Fry.

Fry however does not reprise the character for the Minister of Chance spin-off and the character (perhaps undergoing a regeneration) is played instead by Julian Wadham.

This company also runs by asking for pledges to produce the show.

People could participate in meaningful jobs. The voluntary sector or community sector (also non-profit sector or “not-for-profit” sector) is the duty of social activity undertaken by organizations that are not for-profit and non-governmental. This sector is also called the third sector,in contrast to the public sector and the private sector. Civic sector or social sector are other terms for the sector, emphasizing its relationship to civil society. Given the diversity of organizations that comprise the sector, This can be called “non-profit and voluntary sector”. And it can be backed by a Universal Income.

There are also the creation of green jobs, also called a green-collar jobs is, according to the United Nations Environment Program, “work in agricultural, manufacturing, research and development (R&D), administrative, and service activities that contribute(s) substantially to preserving or restoring environmental quality. Specifically, but not exclusively, this includes jobs that help to protect ecosystems and biodiversity; reduce energy, materials, and water consumption through high efficiency strategies; de-carbonize the economy; and minimize or altogether avoid generation of all forms of waste and pollution. This may include Eco industrial Parks.
A first task in gaining a better understanding of the third sector and its existing and potential contributions to socio-economic development is to clarify the concept of the third sector in its European manifestations. Considering the enormous diversity of types of entities potentially embraced by this concept and the wide variety of terms used to depict it, this task is far from easy.
Definitions of the third sector share certain common attributes:
• They are all institutionally separate from government though they may have varying degrees of close working relationships with the state;
• They all enjoy a significant degree of self-governance;
• They all embrace some meaningful degree of voluntary involvement.
Research literature on the third sector outlines at least four “clusters” of third sector manifestations, but not only is there considerable debate among these different clusters about what entities or phenomena deserve to be included, there is also considerable conceptual disagreement within the clusters.
Of course none of this happens by magic, in some sectors planning is necessary.

The basic income continues to have a diverse set of supporters — left, right and libertarian. They like the concept for different reasons, said Matt Bruenig, a writer and policy analyst for Demos. Those on the left tend to like it because it’s egalitarian. It helps give everyone an equal (or more equal) shot at success in our capitalist society. Some libertarians and right-wingers support the concept, meanwhile, because they see it as a way to whittle away at government bureaucracy. Some would have the basic income replace many existing social safety net programs. There’s also a conservative philosophy underlying all of this: Give people money and they, not the government, know best how to spend it. They know what they need. The feds do not.
