OHIAS' mission is to educate and empower people everywhere to live responsibly, just and sustainable as our natural world requires. We believe and many will agree sustainable communities are the foundation stones and life blood of a sustainable planet.
Question of our day.
Are we not obligated knowing all we know about ourselves and our natural world to live responsibly, just and sustainable as our natural world requires.
OHIAS Believes ...
While OHIAS has many beliefs a few drive our mission and work, they include: universal respect, value, work and community.
RESPECT — Our world lacks a common respect for our living and finite planet. This is demonstrated by people, communities and nations when finite life-sustaining capacity of our planet is compromised for short term interests and benefits. This lack of common respect for our planet is so out of step with our natural world it bends minds and thinking so much it causes many to act out irresponsibly.

COMMUNITY — Our Communities are the foundation stones of a sustainable planet. To right the wrongs of past and present we need to make our communities more central to our lives and as sustainable as humanly possible.
WORK is essential for well being and is as important as wholesome food, rest, and relaxation.
No one should be denied the opportunity to perform wholesome community work.
Work is good for what ails us today (people and community).
Wholesome community work has been too long under appreciated and valued.
There is more than enough work to do in our communities and finite world if we all learned to live and work more naturally and responsibly (sustainably) like nature requires.
SUSTAINABLE CONSUMPTION, REUSE and RECYCLING are central to our healthy, sustainability and future. Our finite natural world is dependent upon sustainable consumption and REUSE and recycling to maintain its very delicate cycle of life.

VALUE — Much of the natural capital locally and around the world is under rated and valued and represents significant loss in terms of our community's health, sustainability, efficiency, economy, jobs, business, and more. What's missing is consideration for a material's finite contribution to a sustainable community and planet.

Our natural world requires us all to live within the boundaries of our finite living planet. If we don't learn to or want to we will certainly continue to destroy its delicate life-sustaining fiber.
This is why OHIAS believes our health is at stake. Our
natural world is all about repeating life cycles, sustainable life cycles, and is why we believe our communities and economies needs to be more circular like nature.
