Our programming is structured around the four elements, each representing one of our planet’s building blocks. To these, we add a fifth component, Heart, which binds the four elements together. Without social impact and the contribution of diverse individuals, the elements will fail to achieve balance. Only when we work together toward our shared goals can we make progress toward a brighter future for the planet and all of its communities.

It has become increasingly important to adjust current practices altering natural ecosystems so that ecological communities and humans can continue to flourish in harmony.

Heat is an essential factor in supporting life. The sun provides the planet with a natural source of energy, while human beings have continued to utilize the planet’s resources to produce their own. Aspects of climate change, from wildfires to global warming, have continued to pose ever-increasing risks to natural ecosystems and human communities.

Polluted air reminds us to invest in cleaner energy and sustainable practices to address increasing levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Tackling such a large issue involves working together to change our current emissions habits and directing attention toward developing the tools and resources that will enable us to maintain those cleaner habits in the future.

At the heart of sustainable development is the need to focus on environmental equity. This crucial focus ensures that every individual, in present and future communities, has access to a clean and healthy lifestyle. Along with the technological innovation, each individual’s contribution to this collective effort will shape the move toward greater sustainability.
