Three Pillars for Compassionate Citizens adapted from

"A Fearless Heart" by Thupten Jinpa, Phd

At the core of everything we do is a very simple belief: we are a part of this world; and so, we must learn to live together with reverence for self, other, and nature.

 

By employing an inclusive, holistic perspective that combines experiential learning, natural wildlife research, and conservation action into our personal development and education projects, our Prime Earth Learning Framework empowers youth to become compassionate and responsible global leaders and citizens who understand that everyone is connected to each other and to all living creatures on earth.

People, governments, corporations, and educators around the world are beginning to recognize the dire need for a healthy planet with happy people.
We've got the tools to ensure youth are prepared to build bright futures!
