“Empowering individuals, communities, and organizations to make Earthwise choices”
Earthwise Aware (EwA) focuses on fostering ecological literacy and advancing the practice of an informed, ethical and compassionate attitude with respect to Nature habitats and animals (wild or in captivity).
At 7.6 billion humans and counting, the way we live, the choices that we make daily, the actions that we take and not, including our silences, echo in our immediate environment and everywhere else on Earth. At EwA, we choose to be aware and make an ecological difference. Nature Conservation for us is a way of living. We care and it shows!
EwA reconciles attitude, science & behavior, and gets us back in synch with Ecological reality.
Our objective is to facilitate the development and adoption of an enduring attitude of ecological respect & belonging, paired with a resilient eco-centered behavior.
Our tools? We offer a wide range of guides, etiquettes, and nature experiences for the engagement of the public and professionals with our immediate environment, Nature habitats, and wildlife.
EwA is multi-disciplinary and integrative. We bridge knowledge and ethics gaps between Wildlife and outdoors enthusiasts, conservation experts, ecological researchers and volunteers, wildlife welfare scientists, and Nature. We make the work of scientists and conservationists accessible & actionable. We inform; we guide; we engage; we connect. We enable individual, organizational and societal changes.
Our work and ecological principles are based upon a Systems Thinking approach and Ethics that benefit directly nature conservation, supporting individuals and organizations to better integrate within our environment and act with the survivability and preservation of integral ecosystems in mind.
Our impact is an informed & responsible form of environmental engagement —one that makes a difference in a World which needs that we redefine our relationship with Nature.
The EwA community is growing. Be trendy & join us in making an ecological difference!
“Altogether ecologically & ethically engaged everywhere–all the time”
Our vision is that of a world where we are ecologically and ethically active wherever we are, whatever we do and whoever we are —a tourist, a visitor, a conservation or ecology scientist, expert or leader, a volunteer, or simply an eco-minded citizen.
These 3 traits are our guiding principles in our application (and promotion) of ethics, where:
▹ Knowledge refers when possible to science-evidence based knowledge (data & facts…), and also includes traditional and local ecological knowledge (also known as TEK and LEK).
▹ Humility and Empathy are key ingredients in the process contributing to fairness and caring, objectivity and honesty.
The EwA attitude happens to also reflect our core values because they act simultaneously as individual motivators that we all share, as well as they compel us to follow a particular course of action.
