Whether you believe or disagree with the current debates on climate change and environmental degradation, put aside some of your doubts and judgements and read about some of the innovative and creative ways that problems are being addressed.

It is no longer possible to deny that our planet has become steadily and increasingly toxic, and that we are harming it at our own peril.  It has become essential  for us to stop our wasteful and polluting ways that are damaging our ecosystem, and placing the future and  survival of mankind and all life on this planet at risk.

I think that we can all accept,  whether you are an adversary or proponent of the highly politicized phrase “climate change,” the solutions we need to implement for humanity’s long-term survival are obvious, necessary and beneficial for everyone that desires a future in a healthy and “liveable” world.

There are four major areas that can unite everyone, and getting caught up in any debate is unnecessary.

  • We need to use methods in agriculture that regenerate the soil —  not deplete it
  • Protect the water resources of lakes, rivers, oceans and aquifers
  • Reduce waste and use recycling wherever possible
  • Seek and perfect non-destructive and renewable energy sources such as wind and solar energy

The blog will feature articles on new creative initiatives that deal with these four areas, and the mission of the Green House website is devoted to organizing exhibitions that highlight the problems and feature creative ways to improve these four areas

The Website is created by The Humanities Exchange.  Founded in 1981, The Humanities Exchange is devoted to  encouraging understanding and mutual respect among cultures around the world through international exchange and the development and touring of  museum exhibitions.

The Humanities Exchange is a non-profit organization that assists a worldwide audience of museums, art centers, universities, libraries, corporations, foundations and other cultural organizations. The fields of interest include the visual arts, history, science — all of the humanities disciplines.

The Humanities Exchange’s mission is to advise and work with public and private institutions and individuals in Europe, North America and Asia, and to act as a liaison in the coordination of high quality exhibitions for tour to non-profit cultural and educational institutions.

This Green House website will be devoted to an exploration of creative solutions in all fields for the preservation of the environment.
