Earth Citizens Organization (ECO), a nonprofit organization, promotes mindful living, natural health, and sustainability. ECO provides classes, workshops and community activities to serve these values and develop leaders to make a difference in their communities.
ECO stands for Earth Citizens Organization. The name denotes that we are all citizens of the Earth, and share the responsibility, as its stewards, for the well-being and continuity of our planet and all of the life forms on it. Since its establishment, ECO has been committed to developing leaders who make a difference in their lives and communities in the spirit of Earth Citizenship.
Like many other movements, the seed of the Earth Citizen Movement was planted by one person, when he started teaching exercise at a public park in South Korea 30 years ago. Ilchi Lee, believing that hope for a better world lies in awakening the greatness in human nature, has dedicated his life to helping people harness their potential to create positive changes in their lives and communities. Inspired by the teaching and example of Ilchi Lee, ECO encourages people to take back the strengths of humanity such as natural health and empathy, and use the strengths to restore communities with its power to care.
Our goal is building a network of more than 100 million people (or 1% of World Population) around the globe by 2020 who CARE about the planet and take action to make their community safer, healthier and more sustainable. To achieve this goal, ECO develops ECO Learning Centers, organizes chapters, collaborate with other organizations and provides education to create leaders around the world.
