Strategies 

achieved by implementing three dynamic areas:

Mercy for Earth seeks to increase public awareness, educate and mobilize the community by understanding environmental issues through research, the media and educational programs.

 Environmental Education is facing new challenges. Despite significant achievements, from institutional agencies and others, it must be strengthened and project its expansion, thereby eliminating the slow bureaucratic aspects, creating new strategies of action, further opening of the social agencies and pursuing broader international commitments. Deepening in Environmental Education is the surest path to planetary transformation and survival of the human race.

 We know that the formal incorporation of Environmental Education, as a basic and compulsory as a subject (such as mathematics) in all levels of education will contribute greatly to the development of future generations. Thus, the formation of "Environmental Educators" specifically prepared to deepen the comprehensive training of children and youth, and with a multidisciplinary focus on environmental and human matters (body-soul-spirit-environment) will forge new generations of individuals, more respectful and committed to the environment. 




Eliminate or minimize the bureaucracy and excessive "institutionalization of the Plan", to optimize the use of resources in specific and direct actions.


  • Integrate social and environmental organizations in cooperation projects for the implementation of the actions that enable the fulfillment of the objectives.
  • Coordinate with existing institutions, outreach programs, collaboration and coordination.
  • Prioritizing actions in disadvantaged regions through international cooperation mechanisms.
