The Center for Planetary Culture is a not-for-profit educational organization dedicated to a few fundamental propositions: that a transformation of global beliefs and practices is necessary for a sustainable and just society; that this transformation requires a meeting of indigenous and postmodern world views; that future development must mesh with ecological design.
The Center for Planetary Culture intends, through issue briefs, research papers, video productions, public talks, and social media, to define and explain what a new planetary culture entails. It will seek to rally support for this vision among cultural influencers and the public, and to stimulate vital debate on the future of technology, spirituality, and social change, along with other aspects of the transformation facing us today.
The organization will function as a new hybrid between a traditional think tank and a media destination site. We seek to attract collaborators across disciplines who are practicing a solutions-based approach to the ecological, economic, and political issues that face our global society. By creating a hub for transformational culture, we aim to inspire a new type of planetary citizenship that will re-define our relationships to one another and our environment.
