Mission

Ecological Wisdom
 We acknowledge that human beings are part of the natural world and we respect the specific values of all forms of life, including non-human species.

 We acknowledge that indigenous communities are the custodians of the land and its resources. Their heritage, their ways of life, their stewardship of this planet, and their cosmological insights are an invaluable treasure for us all.

 We acknowledge that human society depends on the ecological resources of the planet, and must ensure the integrity of ecosystems and preserve biodiversity and the resilience of life supporting systems.

b) Social Justice
 We assert that all citizens should get access to justice and their rights must be protected. There is need to ensure that all citizens have full opportunities for personal and social development.

 We declare that there is no social justice without environmental justice, and no environmental justice without social justice.
