Climate change, the threat of the imminent depletion of resources, natural and political cataclysms, wars, and the world economic crisis all lead to the conclusion that we are on the brink of catastrophe.

The Planetary Project is a scientific theory and a practical programme of creating a new economic base for a polycentric world in which every country can take its place in the global division of labour and achieve a satisfactory level of life.
We propose a new world design based on a planetary code. This code is universal: it allows cultural diversity and unity in the way humans treat the planet.
It is possible to save the world only if we unite and start taking the right decisions based on reason, spirituality and compromise. If we do not begin this journey right now, it will soon become too late to do it.
