Historically, the Earth Community Organization (ECO) was called The Global Community organization. The name was changed during the August 2000 Global Dialogue. Thereafter, we used both names as meaning the same organization. The Global Community means the Earth Community Organization and vice versa. Global Community WebNet Ltd. has operated its business under the name of the Global Community for several years and is still doing now.
The Global Community organization was first discussed in a report on
global changes published in 1990 by Germain Dufour. The report contained 450
policies (workable sound solutions) on sustainable development, and was
presented to the United Nations, the Government of Canada, the provincial
government of Alberta and several non-profit
organizations and scientists.
Although there is a need to find a home for the Earth Community Organization, and also although the organization was not registered legally in any country so far, the organization exists and has a membership, organizes worldwide conferences, and has an active Global Community Assessment Centre (GCAC). At the moment the organization is handling several research and development projects one very important project being the research and development of the Global Community model.
