The 21st century presents considerable planetary challenges for mankind as far as the management of living beings, waters, and lands are concerned. Since these things concern all of us, we cannot put the entire responsibility of deciding which path to follow on scientists and politicians alone.
Thousands of books, articles, films, and internet sources are currently available. Paradoxically, intellectual production has never been so - abundantly one-sided. It is difficult to find well-adapted responses: we lack the devices for disseminating remarkably diverse human experiences, and we need to improve the quality of our collective thinking..
AGTER, an association comprised of persons and organizations on different continents, proposes to contribute by
Disseminating the largest number of quality informative documents in order to facilitate the creation of alternative policies for the management of land, water, and natural resources. AGTER will develop a document database, and its prototype will be on-line shortly.
Constructing permanent spaces for discussion and reflection among different peoples and cultures with the goal of animating this process and reinvigorating our collective thinking
