Earth Restoration Corps "main OBJECTIVE is to conduct and facilitate action-based learning, in partnership with local and international organizations, leading to productive and meaningful work in environmentally sustainable development. The learning is also a transformational process of character development by re-connecting with nature’s laws and drawing on people’s respective ethical, cultural, and spiritual traditions. On this foundation of moral regeneration, young adults will acquire the knowledge, motivation, and practical skills for productive work opportunities that in part incorporate the creative application of earth restoration techniques, including appropriate and energy renewable technologies." [1]

"The Earth Restoration Corps (ERC) was formally established as a non-profit corporation in 1999 and obtained tax-exempt 501(c)3 status from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service in 2000. But before its formal establishment, the ERC’s history spanned decades of preparation and activities – first-hand experience, reflection, spiritually grounded activism and advocacy, launching projects, networking – by its visionary founder and president, Hanne M. Strong of Denmark." [2]
