Vision: A world that values the diversity of all life and provides for its sustainability by living in harmony with nature and spirit.
Mission: To create a community in which we work to expand our consciousness by living in the question: How does one live sustainably in harmony with nature and spirit? This will enable us to be of service, share our experiences, and link with similar local and global efforts.

2. Centre for Leadership for Women, an Australian organization:
Vision: To empower women to believe in their own unique leadership qualities.
Mission: To be a virtual Centre for Leadership for women that empowers women to recognise and develop their own leadership potential in a work, community or personal context by
