We promote the belief that everyone deserves to live on a healthy planet, in peace and prosperity, using sustainability, compassion and respect as our guiding principles.
In support of this belief Global Patriot will engage in the following activities:
- Generate awareness of the many issues that prevent this belief from manifesting
- Honor those individuals, NGOs & non-profits who are dedicated to positive change
- Work with individuals, NGOs & non-profits to raise funds in support of their causes
- Sponsor new programs, campaigns and initiatives which seek to improve our planet
- Identify ways in which individuals can change their lifestyle to support sustainability
- Participate in conferences, events, and discussions that support these basic principles
- Utilize social and traditional media to support these goals and ideals within all cultures
- Encourage business & government leaders to incorporate socially responsible practices
Every business needs a mission statement, and properly written, it succinctly defines the reason that business began in the first place.
While Global Patriot is a movement, as opposed to a business venture, defining this reason for being is still an important part of the process.
The passion to create Global Patriot came from an examination of world events and an honest look at the current state of humanity. It’s based on the belief that we can only solve problems if we act as one family.
Those Less Fortunate
Life is often complex and multi-faceted, yet in the end we all strive to live our life filled with joy and happiness, surrounded by friends and family while appreciating the profound beauty and grandeur that nature has to offer.
Most of us are very fortunate in this regard, living a relatively safe, secure and happy life, but many in our global family are far less fortunate. Although mankind has matured over the centuries, the fact remains that our planet finds itself under environmental siege and millions of its citizens still lead lives trapped in abject poverty and suffering due to injustice, inequality, oppression, and lacking education or opportunity.
These facts are evident to us on a daily basis, as warfare continues to ravage civilian populations, ethnic and religious groups are discriminated against, basic human rights violated, and the planet’s ecosystems are thrown out of balance by unrelenting pollution.
Despite our grand economic, social and scientific achievements, many people still die of disease, starvation and warfare as we blindly squander our natural resources.
But does it have to remain this way? Are we so addicted to our lifestyle that we cannot change?
Or is there a solution to this dire situation…can we discover a way in which we the people can somehow change things for the better, can alter our habits and live in a way that respects the planet?
Returning to the mission statement, the fundamental reason for creating the Global Patriot movement was to address the need for a change in consciousness – a consciousness that embraces the entire planet in a holistic fashion while recognizing that we are all connected – and not just humanity, but all living creatures, as well as the air, water, and soil.
Everything we do affects everything there is.
While this post was intended to make a statement about the Global Patriot movement, it is also designed to be a starting point in a serious conversation, a conversation that includes you.
