While we are encouraged when governments and companies make advancements toward a sustainable and equitable world, in our hearts we believe it is the power of individuals that makes a real difference.
- We wish to make change personal.
- We are realists.
- Our focus is on creating programs which support people’s desires to contribute to a better world in combination with an economic value.
Because, let’s face it, we all make decisions based not just on emotion but also on economics. We believe it is time to teach our systems how to link economy to social and environmental responsibility. Let’s call it economics with a conscience.
We are proud geeks.
(We own light sabers. Need we say more?)
So we created a mission statement:
We at paleBLUEdot believe in the immense power of individuals to make positive change in the world and lead lives of global integrity. We strive to inspire and empower by increasing awareness and creating opportunities for personal engagement.
