We envision this document/book/protocol not as temporary and one-time made, but as a permanent and evolutionary tool that will be improved, changed, and perfectioned by humanity. We want to launch the first version, but for sure will be better and more versions in the future, and maybe should be one different for every country of the world.

We have a goal of gathering 15K Euros to create this book and distribute it all over the world.
