Description

Boomerang for Earth Conservation (BEC) is a French non-profit organization founded in 2010. The term "Boomerang" refers to an Australian Aboriginal tool that, after being thrown, travels in an elliptical path and returns to its point of origin. The verb "to boomerang", derived from this Aboriginal tool, means an action that returns unexpectedly to its originator. Quoting Newton, this is like saying that "To all action there is an equal and opposite reaction." Applied to mankind and Earth conservation, this means that if we treat the Earth well, the Earth will nourish and sustain us in turn.

Based on this principle, BEC was created to implement and support small, local, ethical, community-based conservation projects worldwide because:

  • We think that change is needed.
  • Change can come from the ground.
  • All small actions are important.
  • We can all contribute to a more sustainable world.
  • We think that we can no longer wait.
  • We still have a chance.
  • Now is the time to change.

Join us in this adventure for a better planet!!

"Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect." ~Chief Seattle, 1855
