Our Vision

Our vision is for a planet on which we all accept, know and understand our place in the web of life. We will work to bring the science to all, so that all appreciate the need to balance well-being for all with climate safety and healthy ecologies, and economic and political systems that support this vision.

We stand for the Protection and Preservation of Life on Earth.
