THE CLIMATE
WE CAN
 

 

The philosophy of the Global Village Institute is that emerging trends that link the world together are not ethically neutral, but often have long-term implications for viability of communities, rights of nature and our common future. Thoughtless design is everywhere. It is time to do things differently.

We are about closing the circle.

Returning CO2 from sky to earth.

Recovering energy and nutrients from wastes.

Regenerating human communities...

and all our relations.

 

OUR VISION

At the edge of the habitable zone in orbit around the Sun our vision is of a garden planet .

Our mission is

Care of Earth

Care of People

We believe climate change is the greatest problem that humans have ever faced.
Right now it is coming at us with alarming, and quickening, speed.
Government and cultural responses have been too little, too late...
... but there is still hope.
The problem is not technological. We know how to fix it. The problem is social.
It starts now. It starts here. This solution is in your hands.
