The Association aims to spread, disseminate and popularize a culture of conscious and sustainable development, in the social, economic, ethical and cultural areas and supports the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations through concrete actions.
It is proposed to disseminate the principles of a culture that helps to transition into sustainable ways of life for the creation of a global society that includes respect and care for all forms of life, universal human rights, respect for diversity, participatory democracy and exchange among peoples in order to safeguard the cultural heritage. The Association aims to promote the knowledge and experimentation of new teaching methods which take account of a systemic approach that will lead to integration and connections between different forms of knowledge. Activities may be open to children, youth and adults from around the world, because the presence of different nationalities and cultures contributes to the recognition of diversity as a value, reciprocal enrichment and collective resource.
