The Earth Viability Center

The Earth Viability Center, Inc. is a not-for-profit 501(C)3-tax-exempt corporation registered in Virginia, USA.

Vision

The Earth Viability Center supports the integration and dissemination of the best available scientific knowledge on the Earth’s Life Support System (ELSS). The Center supports development of the best means of informing the general public about the long-term viability of the ELSS and the (mainly) human activities threatening the long-term viability of the ELSS.

Mission

Earth Viability’s initial research program is focused on Viability Indices, i.e. key indicators which show how the actual state of the Earth Life Support System compares to a healthy state, i.e. the viability of the ELSS. To the extent possible this will be done for scales ranging from the global to the local.

It is expected that, from time to time, Earth Viability will have other related research programs.
