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. However, we still have a last chance to survive and to preserve the world for ourselves and our descendants. We can do this by stopping conflicts and becoming sincere humanity.
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.
Man is the crown of the Universe, created in the image and likeness of the highest perfection, to be commanded by Mother Nature. However, now another definition of man is more popular - an aggressive parasite that has flooded this beautiful planet. Both statements are indisputable and have already spawned quite a few scientifically grounded concepts, populist theories, and even programs of urgent measures and concrete actions.

It is mortally dangerous for the Earth to expand this privileged section the world’s population...
It is an impossible task for any single state to try and save the Earth for future generations alone. Over the recent decades, the existing international associations have not been effective in this domain either. All too often their activity has caused criticism for discrediting objective integration processes, among other things. The United Nations Organization, to which 193 governments have delegated their representatives, clearly needs serious modernization. Independent experts, while noting 70 years of UN contribution to maintaining the world order on the planet, highlight serious shortcomings in the organization’s work.
Finally, the year 2018 is going to end. Last few months have been very eventful. Lots of Planetary Concerns which have been highlighted in our portal www.planetaryproject.com have been discussed in the G-20 summit and the COP24 in Poland recently in December this year. This year’s G-20 meeting was important because it preceded the COP24 climate change conference taking place in Katowice, Poland from 3 December, at which the “Work Program” or rule book of the 2015 Paris Agreement – when practically all countries signed up to a pledge to ensure global temperatures do not rise by more than 2 degrees before the end of this century – is expected to be agreed.
