The Institute for Conscious Global Change, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) non-profit NGO organization with Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) in the United Nations. Its primary activity is the Millennium Earth Project (MEP). The Institute's mission is to gather relevant data, in coordination with the OECD, UNESCO, the Inter-Agency and Expert Group on MDGs Indicators led by the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations Secretariat, and other data gathering bodies. Our aim is to design a virtual globe making more visible the needs of each country – the effect will be to highlight the problems of each country in one main center so the solutions can be quickly sought and served. In this way the Institute will present a: "Visual Solution to the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development" showing how we can— fundamentally change the way humanity lives and creates its environment. Organization for Conscious Global Change is dedicated to the goal of eradicating physical, emotional, and mental poverty from our planet through educational and economic means. We believe that the world is one world and its sufferings are one, and the sins of humanity are also one. In truth humanity is one, created equal and have equal rights to the resources and opportunities which must be made available to everyone. To achieve this objective, the organization will co-ordinate and make more visible the needs of each country through the Virtual Global Earth Project. This design will be done in co-ordination with the Inter-Agency and Expert Group on SDG Indicators led by the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations Secretariat – the effect will be to highlight the problems of each country in one main centre so that the solutions can be quickly sought and served.
