There is growing recognition that the long-term sustainability of human society on planet Earth is going to require transformation of many human institutions and behaviors. Eligea is based on the simple but powerful premise that any such transformation will need infrastructure to support and sustain it. The world’s existing communication, transportation and energy systems are so familiar and pervasive that it is easy to overlook the fact that they have no stability or growth without massive supporting infrastructures. Transformation to a more sustainable and ethically responsible society requires building a comparable infrastructure.
Eligea’s mission is to make major contributions to the development of this Transformation Infrastructure and to facilitate the participation of individuals, groups, businesses and government agencies in its emergence. We will accomplish this by designing and implementing digital interfaces, new media, processes and relationships based on the values of sustainability, social and ecological responsibility.
