About this project

Our blue planet is in serious danger. This is no longer denied by politicians and scientists. However the cause is still ignored: greed is the driving force in the worldwide economic system. This system is responsible for injustice, exploitation and ecological destruction. Increasing profits is the only criterion in the design of society and the environment. The disastrous consequences are undeniable: mass unemployment, the ruin of public healthcare, the education system and pensions, poverty, miserable living conditions and homelessness, egoism, crime and ruthlessness, armament production and wars, climate change and environmental collapse.

A different and more just world is possible if we move towards environmentally friendly and human economic,- and society-models beyond profit maximisation. To achieve this there has to be social movement, corporate- and globalisation criticism bringing ethics and economics together from the roots up. For the benefit of ecology and society ethic principles have to prevail economic considerations. Saving the planet will only be successful if purely profit-oriented economy collapses and ethical principals are embedded instead.
