| MISSION STATEMENT

The fundamental intention of our group is to be a catalyst for significant change, working as a conduit, linking financial resources with change agents and organizations that are ready for explosive growth. We are committed to the fundamental principles for building a just, sustainable, and peaceful global society in the 21st century.

We are organizing teams, events and community actions for youth groups, inspiring and engaging our next generation of leaders to take personal responsibility in shaping and guaranteeing a sustainable future, including, setting up models for implementing systems offering livelihoods that are based on sustainable principals and the new paradigm. We must shift the direction towards a new economy based on ecological recovery to reduce poverty and unemployment, thus insuring a civilization of Peace and Mutual Respect.

Hanne M. Strong, Founder and President of the Earth Restoration Corps, made this statement during The Women’s Peace Summit in Geneva at the UN, October 2,003, and said it best. “In the Past Two Centuries, we have experienced the most viscous ecological and cultural destruction in human history. Our economy is based on selfishness, seeking of power, greed and waste. We must look beyond the profit motives and view our planet as the source of all life rather than a resource to be continually exploited. It is vital that we prepare our young people to turn the tide of a very dangerous and uncertain future. Unless we fundamentally change our behavior and realize the interdependence of all life, in ten to fifteen years there will be very few life supporting ecological systems intact.”
