Our Vision and MissionOur vision is a just and sustainable world. We work to reduce enivornmental degradation and economic injustice through education and social enterprises.
Our HistoryWorld Centric was founded in 2004 to raise awareness of large scale humanitarian and environmental issues and how our pursuit of a good life was severely degrading the planet’s ecosystems and at the same time creating vast inequalities where 2.5 billion people live on less than $2/day, without access to basic necessities of such as adequate food, water, health care, education, housing, sanitation etc. We started by hosting award winning documentaries and speakers on environmental, social, human rights and peace issues, offered courses on sustainability, simple living and globalization and started to work on a Conscious Living guide. In order to be a self-sustaining organization, without requesting donations or grants, World Centric began selling Fair Trade products and compostable products in beginning of 2005. World Centric continued to host films, speakers and offer courses alongside selling of products and registered as a taxable California Non-Profit Corporation in September 2005, with the intention of filing for a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) status in 2006. However, by summer of 2006, a majority of World Centric's time and resources were going towards managing the organically growing sales of Fair Trade products and compostable products.
