ABOUT THE PLANET AND THE COLORS OF THE LOGO
The Planet of the Logo symbolizes the ONLY home we have, as there is NO PLANET B.
GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP – WITH ONE shared GLOBAL RESPONSIBILITY for our PLANET
United For a Sustainable Future for all and Peace!
ABOUT THE COLORS OF THE LOGO
GREEN symbolizes the wish for an intact nature and a sustainable future for all, while the BLUE stands for clean air and fresh water supply, which are some of the most critical challenges of the 21st century.
ABOUT THE BUTTERFLY ON THE PLANET:
It symbolizes the transformation of the butterfly through the stages of metamorphosis:
Egg, Larva (caterpillar), Pupa (chrysalis) and then Adult Butterfly
We see these changes as analogous to the 4 development steps “waves” of society from hunter-gatherer to agricultural, industrial revolution and then to the new information age. As well it can be seen as a comparison to existing economic systems: socialism, communism, and capitalism. We hope to learn from their failures and pursue a more balanced new world order.
Through countless hours of exchange and debate with top intellectuals, and thought leaders, worldwide in various fields, we have reached the conclusion that we as the people can only overcome the global challenges of the 21st century by a fundamental change in our way of thinking and collective consciousness.
The Butterfly on the Earth of the Logo is also A Symbol of the Fragile Eco-Systems of our World, showing the fragility of Humanity, but also mankind’s ability to metamorphose into something better and more sustainable for the planet. This is something we must do to ensure our own survival and it must come from within, much like the butterfly breaking free of its cocoon and learning to fly of its own accord.
All Changes have to come within all of us, analog to the butterfly metamorphoses. The butterfly needs to break the cocoon by itself, if it is done by outside forces then the butterfly was not able to develop the own muscles while breaking through the cocoon to fly .. he would die crippled!
It is very much analogous with the idea that we must make fundamental changes in our human consciousness within ourselves and act accordingly to ensure a sustainable future for generations to come.
