Local Earth Agreement

{Health & Ecologic Sustainability}


I pledge this agreement to myself, community and Planet. __________________  (signature)

Agreement:  A world-view and personal actions grounded in principles of optimal health and ecologic sustainability.  Health in relationship to self, others and Earth.

Health – Using the term ‘health’ in context of a lifestyle that simultaneously supports optimal personal health, and health in relation to the planet as a whole.  Health in relationship to thoughts, words, actions, feelings, physical body, emotional body, self expression, fulfilment and spirit.

  • Earth/All Beings/Environment/Ecosystem:  Living with an understanding that everything on Earth (and Universe) is connected.  Living in a way that my thoughts, words, actions and lifestyle support the optimal health of the planet as a whole.
  • Local Community/Relationship/Communication:  Practicing a healthy balance of self reliance and interdependence.  Celebrating unity and diversity.  Living in a way that my thoughts, words, actions and lifestyle support the optimal health of my community as a whole.
  • Self/Individual:  Placing myself in an environment that supports my most optimal personal health.  Living in a way that my thoughts, words, actions and lifestyle support the optimal health of myself as a whole being.

Ecologic Sustainability – The intention of living a lifestyle that is harmonious, connected and regenerative to the surrounding natural environment and ecosystem.  Using permaculture to design and implement the most efficient and environmentally sustainable living practices possible.

Local & Global Community –  Thoughts and actions focused on creating healthy and resilient local community.  A simple philosophy rooted in the belief that everything on Earth (and Universe) is connected.  Working together with both local and global community in order to sustain a thriving planet.  Living in a conscious, healthy and sustainable local manner as an effective way to support the health of the global community.  Working together to create a fulfilling, just and sustainable human presence on this planet.

Integration with the Local Earth Alliance & Community Resilience Program
Treekaya is an organization that supports ecologic community development.  The organization is currently establishing a Local Earth Alliance that is used to connect community groups, organizations, individuals, intentional communities and ecovillages with a like-minded vision and purpose.  The vision includes grassroots community education, research, empowerment, organizing, engagement and action in support of creating sustainable, healthy, happy and resilient local communities.  The  Community Resilience Program promotes and hosts frequent social gatherings including study groups, planning meetings, workshops, classes, film nights and community potlucks.  (The network is currently in development and has hubs forming in San Diego County, Colorado, Montana, Oregon, Costa Rica and Haiti – if you are located somewhere not on this list and would like to collaborate in this vision please contact us!)

…In Harmony with People and Planet!
