“Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.” – Chief Seattle, 1854
An integral part of ECO EDEN’S vision is to provide space, facilities and endowments for local, international and interdisciplinary collaboration in the conceptualization, design and development of innovations in the evolution of just and sustainable living. These will include, but are not limited to: attaining independence from fossil fuels through clean technologies and biomimicry; the preservation of healthy habitat for the world’s flora and fauna, on which our own physical and spiritual well-being also depends; and addressing ongoing concerns with regard to the equality of human rights, including the universal right to clean soil, water and air.
Emphasis will also be placed on connecting and building relationships with others engaged in aligned endeavors worldwide. Ongoing and outreach education (with a strong media component) will be provided to encourage the proliferation of green environments in homes and communities locally and throughout the world.
To be included and woven throughout these endeavors, the visual and performing arts are to be considered integral participants in responding to the challenge and pursuit of creative change.
