The objectives of the Save the Earth Foundation include:
? To fund environmental research projects
? To provide factual and educational information to the public about issues relating to the environment
? To raise the level of environmental consciousness
The Save the Earth Foundation functions as a non-profit public benefit corporation dedicated to the expansion of environmental awareness in our society. As an organization committed to raising public environmental consciousness by supporting scientific research and educational programs, we are optimistic that our work will have a very positive impact on the efforts currently under way to solve our earth's problems.
The Save the Earth Foundation embraces overall objectives which include: enhancing the quality of our global environment for the benefit of all people and promoting a better understanding of the effects our society has on the long term health of our planet.
The Save the Earth Foundation's research endeavors center on the selection and funding of environmentally beneficial programs within our institutions of higher education. In order to achieve our objectives we are committed to the continued support of vital research programs including: Seminars and Workshops to coordinate and concentrate the research potential of associated campuses: Such as those held in 1989 at UC Davis to merge the efforts of all nine University of California campuses and their affiliated national laboratories.
Research focusing on the consequences of global warming through large scale modeling: Like the investigation under way at Duke University in their unique Phytotron Project. Efforts to evaluate the current state of our planet's atmosphere: Similar to the endeavors of scientists within the Climate Center at Columbia University. Studies centering on the psychological ramifications of our deteriorating environment: Analogous to the research currently underway at UCLA's Center for the Study of the Environment and Society where their efforts focus on interactions between the environment and social processes. With the support of people from all walks of life we are confident that the Foundation's efforts will help to reverse the environmental deterioration of our planet.
Thank you for your concern with regards to our planet's future.
In the early 1970's I began to realize the developing trends of mankind were resulting in the poisoning of our earth. Late in 1972, my thoughts centered around motivating other people to help stop this destruction. My vision soon became focused on Save the Earth, "a message to help create a higher level of environmental consciousness among people."Motivated by the awareness that the "Have a Nice Day" smile face of the 60's could bring a positive element into our daily lives, I knew that environmental artwork together with a meaningful message could become a positive influence on our earth's future.
In 1986 I was very excited about the positive affect of adding a colorful rainbow to our Save the Earth message.In 1988, after 16 years of working with "earth" art and the vital message of "Save The Earth" the funds to establish the environmental research foundation that I had always envisioned were finally available.The foundation's first environmental grant in 1989 co-sponsored a series of three workshops on global climate change at the University of California at Davis.
Since 1989, with the ongoing support of concerned individuals the Save the Earth Foundation has granted research funding to numerous colleges and universities. As people continue to embrace our colorful artwork and the "Save the Earth" message we plan to continue funding vital research in an effort to slow and ultimately reverse the deterioration of our planet earth.Today more than ever we must acknowledge the fact that a great many environmental violations of the past continue to haunt us in the present. Our support of research in the physical sciences will continue to find solutions to these numerous man-made problems of the past and present.
Moreover, we feel that our support of research at UCLA in the social sciences will undoubtedly lead us to better understand how we can change our attitudes towards our environment and thus insure a healthy future for our planet. The goal to raise the environmental awareness of all people is key to making lasting changes to help our environment. Please join me and others like yourself and spread the word .......
