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.
People, COMMUNITY and Planet
Our communities are the bedrock of a sustainable people and planet.
OHIAS believes communities are the bedrock of a sustainable planet.
Global consumption now stands around 1.5 times our sustainable capacity and is expected to grow even more over the next 30 years. Population and consumption are both on a raise and its likely we will see global consumption at 2 or more times in this same time period. While there are a number of things that are influencing this growth beyond population and consumption the raise of global products and markets are making local economies less important and significant. This is not good for our nature world, our communities or us, its terribly unhealthy.
OHIAS believes a great need exists today to reinvent community. OHIAS is hopeful that its first community benefit project (MARIN Community Benefit Cooperative) will become part of this reinvention.
More is planned for this subject and we will make it a priority to include all in our community.
