Living Earth is pragmatic; not campaigning

Solutions cannot be learned from a textbook. They cannot be prescribed from the top down. Each situation is different, each is unique and each requires its own individual approach.

We work with all sectors of society to build and nurture an environment, which enables people to develop effective solutions to environmental concerns.

Rather than imposing solutions, Living Earth helps to develop people's knowledge, skills and abilities in response to their needs.

The Living Earth Foundation UK is at the heart of a growing network of organisations around the world. This staff team of over 60 people in more than 8 countries works in a co-operative and supportive way to maximise their impact.

The network is currently made up of five fully independent, locally managed organisations: Fundación Tierra Viva (in Venezuela), Living Earth Nigeria Foundation, Living Earth Uganda, Fondation Camerounaise de la Terre Vivante (in Cameroon) and Living Earth Ghana.

Many of the challenges society now faces are of a global nature. The Living Earth Foundation believes that they will be most effectively addressed by understanding different views and perspectives, sharing ideas across cultures and learning from each other to develop a locally appropriate response.
