Econation’s purpose is to provide information and learning opportunities which will guide and help people to build lives of well-being and a sustainable future for people and planet.
The ‘eco’ in Econation stands for planet and ‘nation’ stands for all people.
We are a social, not-for-profit organisation that focuses on what is good for both people and planet.
Vision and purpose
The key to human well-being as well as environmental well-being is for people to reduce their ecological footprint below the biocapacity of the earth. For over ten years Econation has pointed to the ways people can reduce their ecological footprint. We stress that reducing your footprint does not mean deprivation, on the contrary, by changing our focus from consumption and material wealth to those things that truly provide well-being we will all be better off. Those things are intrinsic satisfactions like relationships, meaningful pursuits and self-fulfilment.
Econation’s vision is one where everyone is united to sustain our natural and social systems, for the good of people and the planet. A world in which people leave it as good as they found it – if not better.
Econation’s role in this vision is to provide information and learning opportunities which will guide and help people to build lives of well-being and provide a sustainable future for people and planet. The knowledge we provide is relevant and useful for individuals, families, businesses and organisations of all sorts.
Our intention is:
- to make all information practical, simple and clear
- to focus on causes rather than symptoms
- to be unbiased and independent
- to provide information that is not highly technical or academic
- to provide resources for schools
- to value feedback
- to practice what we preach
- to have fun
