Who we are

Vision

In the developing world, empowered communities are meeting their needs and improving their living standards without Government band-aid policies or foreign aid. The best practices of such communities and their social technologies contribute to implement sustainability worldwide. Sustainable Pangea is an international cooperation tool, non-governmental, designed to enhance sustainable development. It serves local communities, social entrepreneurs, public bodies and civil society organisations.

Objectives

– Map the best practices that fulfil the sustainability criteria, identify their contributions to society and collect information on social technologies and popular know-how used in their application

– Give visibility to social entrepreneurs and local communities leading sustainable initiatives, facilitating cooperation amongst them

– Establish a dynamic platform for reproducing best practices and transferring social technologies

– Raise awareness of the importance of sustainability and promote it globally

– By the end of 2012, to make all the information available in English, Spanish, Portuguese and French

Long-term goals

– Cover all the continents

– Strengthen international cooperation links

– Create an insightful and quality-controlled pool of social ideas, technologies and projects, acting as a bridge between social entrepreneurs and potential investors or donors

– Involve Universities, research centres, NGOs and public organisations (national and supranational) to promote best practices and sustainability in the developing world
