Message from the President
The beginning of the new millennium finds the Earth at a crossroads. On one side we see a big spender consumer society. One where continuous growth threatens the destruction of the natural resources that sustain human activities.
On the other hand, we find efforts to reverse this destructive process and introduce practices to ensure the well-being of the earth for future generations.
SHARE International is at the forefront of this latter movement. We promote the understanding for the needs of sustainable living styles. Unlike organizations that are trying to protect the environment without regard to humanities continued influence, the goals of sustainable development are to work with local groups and individuals to protect the environment on which they depend.
By promoting awareness, creating alternatives, encouraging social and ethical responsibility, along with education, technical, and scientific support, we can create a new paradigm for the future that will work toward protecting the environment on which we all depend.
