POE is a community that recognizes All People are Citizens of Earth, All People have a responsibility to Protect the Earth from harm, and All People are Partners of Earth as our relationship is symbiotic.

Community is a public spirit that shares commonalities such as values, customs, identity.

Our community has no borders or specific shape; it forms and morphs organically.

We enhance happiness through individual and collaborative effort toward our subsistence, self-reliance, and resiliency capabilities.

All individuals are invited to take the POE pledge.

By taking the POE Pledge, you become a member of the POE Community.


The POE Pledge

As a Citizen of Earth, I pledge the following:

 

I will respect every person’s individual sovereignty.

 

I will defend myself and my community from threats to well-being.

 

I will treat all living things with kindness and compassion.

 

I will take from the Earth only what I need to survive and flourish.

 

I will share information and knowledge to better the lives of others.

 

I will participate in the stewardship of my environment.

 

I will, during times of hardship, share my overabundance with my community.

 

I will endeavor to evolve through scholarly and experiential learning.

 

I will think for myself.
