Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

FOUNDATION EARTH is a national, non-profit, public interest advocacy organization founded in 2011. Our mission is to bring an earth-centered “True Cost Economy" into reality. Our focus includes: economic models, technology, biospheric education, and earth jurisprudence. We call for a rethink of society from the ground up. We envision more self-reliant communities embedded in a continental network of bioregional economies. Time is not on our side.

The strategy is to examine the dimensions of a deeply resilient economy, arguing for it, and providing advisory services to social movements concerning systems change. In fact, calling for a rethink of society from the ground up is a strategy. The response strategy requires more self-reliant communities embedded in a continental network of bioregional economies. Time is not on our side. A rapid shift from an industrial society that ignores nature's carrying capacity limits and irresponsibly pollutes (cheater economics) to a True Cost Economy is the strategy.
.

Our organizational capabilities are limited from inception to 2016. We are seeking a collaborative approach and a joint fundraising effort of $100 million to be spent over seven years. That will radically increase our capabilities, but hasn't been realized to date.
