Our mission remains the same: we serve the people who are transforming the world. We are a team of researchers, teachers, students, activists, scholars, writers, social entrepreneurs, artists, and volunteers committed to the restoration of the earth and the healing of human culture. We do two things: we describe pathways of change in books and research reports, and we create tools for connecting the individuals, information, and organizations that create change.

WiserEarth has been the core program of NCI for the last 4 years. In order to avoid confusion, we decided it was best to rename it WiserEarth! Please join us at




One of the best descriptions of the global zeitgeist, the spirit that we think defines the transition the world is undergoing was best expressed by author and scholar Richard Tarnas: “It is perhaps not too much to say that, in the first decade of the new millennium, humanity has entered into a condition that is in some sense more globally united and interconnected, more sensitized to the experiences and suffering of others, in certain respects more spiritually awakened, more conscious of alternative future possibilities and ideals, more capable of collective healing and compassion, and, aided by technological advances in communication media, more able to think, feel, and respond together in a spiritually evolved manner to the world’s swiftly changing realities than has ever before been possible.”
