We are an international alliance of environmental non-profits under the banner of the Lawrence Anthony Earth Organization. We are independent, non-political, and open to people from all walks of life, all creeds, all religions, all people of good will who want to make the world a better place by re-creating a healthy, aesthetic planet.
We believe, that all life is interconnected—interdependent. That all life has a right to clean water, to clean air, to clean soil. That Earth is our home — our responsibility. That the problems caused by humanity can be solved by humanity and only humanity. We believe that finding real solutions requires real science not opinions. That raising awareness means spreading knowledge, not fear. We believe that mankind’s greatest resource is mankind itself. We can create a world where all life can survive–a world, where all life can thrive. It is finally within our power to save—to protect—to restore our home, our future.
Solving the world’s environmental challenges can only be fully accomplished when a Cooperative Ecology approach is truly understood and applied worldwide. This system of thinking and logic related to mankind’s relationship with the natural world underlies all workable environmental solutions and is the philosophy upon which we operate.
All life does best when it works together with other life. Humanity plus Nature has the power to protect, preserve and restore.
When environmental groups, government regulators, industry and communities are in opposition with clashing viewpoints and purposes, we are seldom able to arrive at ideal solutions or sound reasoning that will benefit the greatest number of lives involved. When life goes out of balance, conflicts ensue; people and other life forms suffer.
As industry, governments, communities and individuals adopt a CoEco way of thinking and working, everyone lives a better life.
CoEco also means that when people work in alignment with natural laws things go right, technology makes sense, everything works well and there are no conflicting technologies or chemistry.
Teaching and implementing Cooperative Ecology is critical to ensuring our science and technology constructively evolves, that industry practices and public policy support all life and that any negative impacts are quickly corrected.
In order to leave our children and succeeding generations a world where humanity and nature can live in harmony, every one of us in this generation, must do everything possible to make this a reality.
