Hey, is there any resolution on an organization that funds money for research, promotion, and maintenance of clean energy?

It is the aptly-named Promotion of Clean Energy. In future, you can search passed resolutions here.

It doesn't state anything about funding economically weak nations money for clean energy. It just promotes it.

I don’t believe there is any active resolution that funds economically-weak nation’s clean energy initiatives.

I would imagine that such a resolution would be unpopular. However that is, due to Ransium and I's greenhouse gas ETS resolution, poorer countries would already receive cash transfers from their sale of emissions permits, which they could easily use for the purpose of building clean energy so develop their economies while also eschewing the need for more permits.

So ive noticed that a lot of players are commenting that my nation's ability to weaponize magic and using magical WMDs is a tad overwhelming to their canon and I was wondering if theres ever been any proposals regarding the magical capabilities of a nation?

None that I'm aware of - I've considered writing something similar to that myself, given the fact that there are certainly nations which RP as having magic, but I'm unaware as to how it would be generally received within the GA community. It's an interesting topic, to be sure.

where could we even start? I know my nation for example sees illusion magic as the most evil form of magic due to its ability to subvert a person's ability to give consent or produce mental illness in someone. Maybe something along the lines of condemning illusion magic?

I don’t going that precise would work, since illusion magic is normally seen as quite benign compared to necromancy or blood magic. Because there are so many different interpretations of magic with few similarities between them, any legislation would have to be incredibly broad.

Does GAR#43 “WA Labor Relations Act” prohibit yellow-dog contracts (agreements that forbid joining a union, often as a condition of employment)? Specifically clauses 2(c): “Employers are prohibited from engaging in actions which interfere with the right of workers to engage in strikes, or actions which interfere with the ability to maintain a strike” and 9: “FORBIDS discrimination based on union membership where employment is concerned. Union members and non-members must be afforded equal treatment in hiring, work assignment, compensation, promotion, training and education, and disciplinary actions.”

I’m asking because, while these agreements do interfere with union membership and the ability to strike, I don’t know if they can be considered “actions” or discrimination on the part of the employer. I am also uncertain if the resolution protects against retaliation for engaging in strikes.

These questions really should go in the Q&A thread.

But specifically first aid skills are not required of teachers, any more than the ability to write or telepathically beam knowledge into students' brains. In other words, leave it to member nations to handle.

OOC: Not gonna ask which one unless one happens to know which one by heart and feels generous,
but a simple yes/no would suffice (and, if nonexistent, I'll just look it up myself; just wanted to save the trouble if more familiar members know)

Have we any resolutions that:

a) cover instances where a member nation violates international law? (I'm sure this has been answered a million times sorry)
(and would be slightly roundabouty given its very nature to conflict with the game of issues itself, but I digress)

b) declares basic rights such as breathing, eating, etc. or easily repeated actions such as meeting up with friends, talking, walking etc.
as being universally legal so as to avoid a significant loophole in habeas corpus law? would have to be vague-ish for non-humans but that's the jist
