The Earth Sustaining Sciences Institute® (ESSI) has over the last 20-years reviewed and developed multiple cropping methodologies. The purpose of this is to continually discover the most desired cultivation ideals and the development of sustaining systems and process to facilitate continual improvement of soil, plant and associated ecologies. ESSI philosophy on a broad scale is the development and advancement of ecosocietally sustainable science based micro to macro cropping utilising the now fully proven and integrated ESSI SymECulture® Purely Natural, Inspired Intuitive Cultivation Methodology® (SymECulture®) to full practical realisation centred upon biologically and geochemically managed purely organic soils and cultivation mediums producing high-yield, high-value results in delivering crops more simple, with less water and labour with greatly improved economics. ESSI is now able to advance their centrus scientific and practical SymECulture® cultivation knowledge releasing dissemination to the greater community. ESSI focus is upon intergenerational, ecosocietal shared success advancement. As a rule most who can diversify from gossip oriented opinions and belief patterns and improve practical over technical curiosity and delivery of science based practical solutions will assist in the advancing of such methodology; contributing to forward thinking laterally enhancing discussions and practices delivering the advancement of intergenerationally sound, ecosocietally serving scientifically and sensibility proven methodologies.
Improving the efficiency of nitrogen (N) uptake through the SymECulture® all-natural localised bio-management and its utilisation in plants is showing increased response, robustness and volume in crop yields while reducing NPK fertilization and, subsequently, environmental pollution. Within most plants, N is transported primarily as amino acids. The simple cost effective SymECulture® enhancement of the growing and management system delivered results that, showed that independent of the N nutrition, the plants developed seeds and produce more biomass and higher seed and crop. They also showed significantly increased N use efficiency in N-deficient as well as in N-rich soils and, impressively, no additional N to produce as the crop and seeds as control plants.
ESSI is now able to advance their centrus scientific/practical growing knowledge of their SymECulture-Purely Natural, Inspired Intuitive Cultivation Methodology® releasing dissemination of this knowledge to the greater community through The Earth Sustaining Sciences Institute-Verde Tech Group collaboration . ESSI focus is upon intergenerational, ecosocietal shared success advancement. As a rule most who can diversify from gossip oriented opinions and belief patterns and improve practical over technical curiosity and delivery of science based practical solutions will assist in the advancing of such methodology; contributing to forward thinking laterally enhancing discussions and practices delivering the advancement of intergenerationally sound, ecosocietally serving scientifically and sensibility proven methodologies.
The ESSI designed and developed the SymECulture-Purely Natural, Inspired Intuitive Cultivation Methodology® , which in 2019 at the Tilligerry Research and Education Farm, was proven as a bonafide world-first polyculture cropping, soil nutrition and hydration management process through the application and use of tailored fully organic local biota invigorated, amino acid advancing growing mediums, seamlessly symbiotically coupled with multiple plant biostimulation variables. The methodology is primarily anchored by matured tailored organic compost complexes, natural geochemical soil stabilisation processes, and fully organic local biota bionutrient enrichment and minimal risk natural biological management processes.
The growing mediums are be broken down into 5 groups:
- Matured tailored naturally organic compost and growing medium enrichment complexes,
- Seed starting complexes,
- Seedling advancing and transplanting complexes,
- Matured structured soil enrichment complexes,
- New garden cultivation medium development and disturbed and denutrified bed enhancement complexes.
The process requires all compostable materials to be higher in carbon than nitrogen; the realised fundamental to transposing healthy matured tailored bionutrified organic compost complexes is to naturally rich and vibrant biologically nutrifying and hydrating solutions. This is to maintain a working balance between all elements including carbon, nitrogen and multiple biological columns to develop complex symbiotic biological manifolds that enhance ecologies within the rhizosphere.
Distinguishing natural biostimulants from artificial or chemical crop advancement inputs was what triggered ESSI Symbiotic Bionutrification Methodology®, which activates soil and plant biology delivering sustainable, highly-productive advancements. The natural minimal-risk soil and crop biostimulants differ from commercial fertilisers, regardless of the presence of nutrients in the products. They also differ from other crop protection products by acting on the plant’s vigour while supporting direct actions against pests and disease. Natural crop biostimulation complement crop nutrition, crop advancement, harvest improvement and ecological synergies. The soil and crop biostimulants activate natural processes to benefit nutrient uptake, nutrient efficiency, abiotic stress tolerance and crop quality. The ESSI SymECulture-Purely Natural, Inspired Intuitive Cultivation Methodology® develops farm management improvements based on practiced innovation and knowledge for the development of ecosocietally prosperous bio-based economies. Sustainable growth promotes a continually improving resources efficient, greener competitive economy while comprehensive growth fosters improved business operation, advancing employment, productivity and expansion potentials delivering local, regional and national cohesion. The SymECulture-Purely Natural, Inspired Intuitive Cultivation Methodology® improvement in nutrient uptake efficiency induces superior quality and yield, facilitating nutrient assimilation, translocation and use increasing plant tolerance to, and recovery from, abiotic stresses. Enhancing the quality attributes of produce, including carbon and cellulose content, colour, and sustainability advancing fruit seeding renders greater efficiency in water use and the enhancing soil fertility by fostering complementary microorganisms supported growing ecologies.

SHARED SUCCESS IN AGRICULTURE
GROWING A SOCIETAL PERMACULTURE ECONOMY - THE 3-STEP (3-S) PROGRESSION
When Small Scale Subsistence Farming is enhanced and advances to Commercially Focused Small Scale Intensive Farming, progressing to combinations delivering minimal change for maximum benefit risk managed Commercially Focused Cooperative Large-Scale Intensive Farming, a shared success Permaculture economy will quickly boom.
The knowledge that underpins agricultural improvement must be a cooperative combination of historic and current natural, cultural and scientifically stable practical over technical design, development and sharing. There is growing recognition that what people know through learning and discovery must be coupled with historic and contemporary simply applied multi-disciplinary sciences to advance positive improvements in ecosocietal behaviour and functional agricultural outcomes. What Bill Mollison created in Permaculture is a synergy of permanent agriculture and permanent culture developing and supporting robust economies; therefore, an intergenerational dynamic ecosocietal system.
The impacts of positive achievable enlightened agricultural knowledge, advanced through minimal change for maximum improvements must integrate historic, current and envisioned methodologies in the advancement of solutions. All are equally imperative ingredients in a culturally supportive holistic, vertically integrated perspective on agricultural growth; analysing and continually improving the symbiotic connections governing knowledge enrichment, sharing, and embracing by farmers and stakeholders alike.
The transfer of knowledge and skills must meet the immediate needs of those it is intended to assist in moving towards a reinvigoration of a market-driven agricultural production economy influenced by proposition that functional, grass roots positive change is the single most powerful catalyst of agricultural growth in growing an ecosocietal Permaculture economy.

THOUGHTS AND OPINIONS
"THE GREATEST HUMAN ACHIEVEMENT IS NOT ITS ARTISTIC, SCIENTIFIC OR TECHNICAL WORK, BUT RECOGNITION OF ITS OWN DYSFUNCTION."
Positive ecological, economic, societal growth, encompassing practice, arts, language, lore and law.
Societal mutualism is paramount in developing and maintaining intergenerationally endorsed advancements in industry, government and community while reducing unnecessary erosion of ecology, economics and culture. The long-term objective is to improve the prosperity and cultural stability of the world’s growing population in a sustainable framework of improving equilibrium in the Earth's biosphere, discussed as the single ecosystem comprising the Earth and all living organisms. Eco-Societally Prosperous activities are synonymous with Sustainable: Sustainability may not necessarily be synonymous with Eco-Societal Prosperity.
The validity and value of the eco-societal prosperity approach (philosophy and practice) is both in the imprint and the resulting positive legacies.
The philosophy of eco-societal prosperity prescribes ecological, economic and societal harmony or equilibrium, embodying synergy of thought and design, to support existing natural systems alongside the development and implementation of beneficial societal advancements. The philosophy promotes mutually beneficial cooperative over competitive systems, intending positive biosphere-outcomes.
The practice of eco-societal prosperity prescribes ecological, economic and societal harmony or equilibrium, through the managing of the systems’ needs, symbiotically provisioned by the systems', with minimal pollutant waste.
The implementation of eco-societal prosperity practice, merely relies upon the prescription and application of sound, ethical principles in governance, business and humanistic consideration.
It is really so simple!
If you read that word whilst sitting in a comfortable room in a developed nation, the chances are high that you also associated it with a raft of negative connotation; pollution, disturbance, noise, unsightly, unnecessary. The list is as long and varied as the diversity of people in your community.
If however, you read that word whilst sitting in a developing nation, the chances are far higher that you associated it in the first instance with a different set of concepts; jobs, growth, prosperity, income, hope. Like the myriad of personal experiences though, this is by no means universal.
Nevertheless, the developed nations are increasingly pathologizing mining and the mining industry. This is illustrated by regulators in many nations acting to make it increasingly difficult for mines to commence or operate, by governments implementing special taxes on mining which are not levied upon other activities, or by imposing bonds and conditions of operation which verge upon the unreasonable and which are not imposed upon other forms of enterprise. In Australia there is more land converted to hotel car parks than there is converted to mines, but no government requires the publican to post a multi-million dollar bond to return their car park to a natural state in advance of construction.
Although regulation of mining, environmental responsibility and oversight of environmental conduct is clearly necessary, the pathologizing of mining, fostering the view that mining is in some way ‘bad’ and should be eschewed in favour of ‘nicer’ industries, is not sane, not productive, not rational, and not beneficial to a nation or humanity as a whole. We know that humans have been mining in some form for over 40,000 years. We began by extracting industrial minerals such as ochres to use as colouring agents at sites found in Africa and Australia, and moved on to tool stones, clays and eventually metals. Archaeologists have concluded that Neanderthals in Europe also mined tool stone. Mining is an activity of advanced hominid culture, not just an affectation of modern man. Thus mining and its products are central to human culture and society.
There are more humans on the earth now than at any other time. The global population is estimated to have reached 7.5 billion this year. Without the products of mining a substantial percentage of these people would die. Let’s be clear; we’re not saying that inhabitants of Europe would suffer the loss of their smart phones, or Americans would be denied the chance to buy a Tesla: Without mining supported agriculture, medicine, energy, and materials technology, the global population must collapse. This means mass suffering and mass death. Humanity is utterly dependent on mining.
So, rather than pulling some popular votes by mouthing ‘green’ ideology to comfortable urbanites in developed nations and imposing punitive conditions and taxes on mining companies, rather than pointing at any one of the lamentably plentiful localised environmental disasters caused by any given mine, what should society be doing? And we say society because the problems are rooted across the whole society of individuals, not just its governance which merely manifests the symptom. What should we do? We should be encouraging efficient mining. We should be applying our technologies and our minds to ensure mining progresses and becomes increasingly viable in terms of culture, society, economy and environment. All four of these critical aspects must be made to work, or we die.
At the levels of individual, community, culture, society, nation and planet, that is what ESS aim to do.
The Earth Sustaining Sciences Group design and deliver intergenerationally viable environmentally sustainable all-natural solutions for the mining, resources and agricultural industries, equally understanding the requisites and methodologies for functional advancement in business, culturally endorsed societal serving enterprise and environmental and ecological advancement. The culmination of 25+ years of research and development has delivered unprecedented solutions and processes which required world travels and demonstrations to allow those who could not grasp the functions of the SABR process to see the deliverables first hand. Those currently reportable are shown in the SABR section of the Biotechnology page of the ESS website.
We are the developers of the Symbiotic Aquatic BioReactor process (SABR), the world’s only proven all-natural, economically, environmentally viable solution for process affected 0-14 pH water and soil remediation and rehabilitation that additionally provides cost effective organic fertigation. The process solves previously thought untreatable contamination issues, allowing their conversion into viable alternatives. SABR is effective in remediating to usability, areas affected by metals, metalloids and pH imbalances resulting from mining, processing, agriculture and natural events. Our agricultural advancement systems yield extremely effective, all-natural, low risk, growth enhancement tuneable and scalable for most soils, crops and climes. We are also in the advanced stages of delivering an all-natural, low cost, SABR based complete desalination process (SABR-BODS).
We understand that one of the greatest business risks to the future of mining is the evolution of environmental guidelines forced upon governments and the private sector by contemporary society. The greater population in now realising with rapidly expanding understanding of and commitment to actioning the realisation that many governments deliver lamentable laws and governance which disregard respect, rights and recognition of the land, environment and affected parties, and continue to place accountability for eco-societal degradation at the feet of the mining, industrial and agriculture entities. Conversely, mining, industrial and agriculture entities, expertly return the accountability firmly to the feet of the governments that deliver lamentable laws and governance, thereby maintaining the periphrastic cycle. The continuing claim is that effective management, remediation and rehabilitation of mining and industrial activities is not cost effective, although most, when promoting the mining and industrial activity for approval, claim it is, and will be carried out. The SABR process has successfully proven in every challenge attended globally that such effective management, remediation and rehabilitation is now cost effective and intergenerationally deliverable by local persons and groups, when trained and supported through the ESS Institute.
The Earth Sustaining Sciences Institute
The Institute focuses on practical over technical systems solutions implementation through process provision supported by societally based, direct, culturally endorsed learning and training, which can be immediately adapted across multiple need communities.
SENSIBLE TECHNICAL EDUCATION IN APPLIED NATURAL SCIENCES AND SHARED SUCCESS
The Institute has a unique learning system, allowing all to participate at their own level. The economic prosperity of communities affected by extractive practices and other industry can be simply, rapidly, viably intergenerationally boosted by business and employment empowerment in the sustainable management of the environment and ecology. The chance to work at home, on-country, in-country in practical, focussed technically astute functions. Such programmes deliver the remediation of effluents, the rehabilitation of disturbed lands and the solving of growing issues surrounding, readily available clean water and arable lands.
Firstly, the communities must be enabled through sensibly delivered multilevel learning in the applied sciences of the deliverable solutions, inclusive of interrelated immediate practical delivery.
The Institute, (ESSI System) has solutions pathways for community eco-societal prosperity, the driving precursor to individual and community empowerment. The realisation of eco-societal sustainability is achieved through ESSI in-house systems, processes and programmes, structured on the Shared Success Series.
The Shared Success Series, which educates in Societal Interaction, Business Practice, Management of Change, Dynamics Application, and Ecology, enables rapid, measurable, practical solutions through the application of sensible levels (applied as multilevel common learning packages, catering for all abilities) of technical understanding. Specifics of the programme include the all-natural SABR process development and implementation, advancing to the specific ecological supportive specialist systems, environmental agriculture and organic polyculture permaculture.
The system delivers substantiated abilities of communities to grow as self-determined, governance embracing, generators of immediate and intergenerationally sustainable, economic and societal prosperity. Essentially, this opens opportunities, through like-minded community, government and private industry Shared Success, focussed upon mutually beneficial solutions.
PRACTICAL LEARNING IN FUNCTIONAL DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION
- Practical learning utilising sensible theoretical understanding, permits greater applications abilities. The immediate benefits of practical learning are immediately realised outcomes. The ESSI System promotes the ability for those in the learning space to rapidly, simultaneously implement and experience both technical and practical benefits. The importance of practical over technical is that each in the learning space immediately enters the solutions space through synergistic participation.
- Design, simply offers opportunity to consider various forms. To simply enter into the design process without considering the ability to achieve beneficial viability delivers little. Functional design, delivers viable, practically beneficial outcomes. It focuses upon mutually beneficial associations to deliver successful solutions to given circumstances.
- Successful implementation therefore must integrate sensible technical and achievable practical components to achieve seamlessly delivered beneficial outcomes.
Environmental Agriculture and Organic Polyculture Permaculture
- Environmental Agriculture is the regeneration of species in a manner that encourages mutual beneficial use between society and environment. Timber species such as Pawlonia are beneficial in the applicable situations for soil and water remediation, shelter belts, bee and bird attraction, high protein stock fodder and regenerable, rapidly realised commercial timber. Environmental Agriculture is the first stage in the agricultural regeneration of disturbed lands.
- Organic for discussion, refers to all-natural solutions and practices.
- Polyculture is the practice of utilising diversity of beneficial species to develop a range of outcomes. One benefit of Organic Polyculture is all-natural symbiosis, assisting the management of productive systems. Another, is the ability to achieve increased yields through multiple different species harvests. Permaculture, is application of beneficial interactions that deliver permanent agriculture, allowing for continuing, resilient, diverse growing systems to work in unison with the local ecology and greater environment.
The model can be applied to deliver empowering beneficial solutions in any community in any location
We live in One-Time; we all have a shelf-life, with empowerment, the biosphere that sustains us will endure
We need to see the Past, Present and Future as One-Time; the Past affects the Present, the Present affects the Future. Societally, we are powerful influencers of the current and future position. It is a priority to make One-Time decisions that positively improve All-Time outcomes giving greater consideration to our biosphere which provides for all life.
One-Time positive-creative energies, focused in shared success are achievable in all we do. As we all look to society as a single One-Time collective, we will empower ecosocietal (mutually beneficial ecological, economic, and societal) solutions delivery. We need to consider that true sustainability, is only achieved through ecosocietally sustainable practices that enhance ecosocietal empowerment.
Ecosocietal (One-Time - All Time) empowerment, therefore, is more than engagement or participation. It implies synergy, shared responsibility and mutually beneficial positive action for improvement. A process of re-defining energies focus to achieve a greater good. It recognises that as some people are empowered, others will positively share and constructively engage and participate.
The complexities of local and global dimensions add to the process of ecosocietal empowerment. In today’s world, the local and global are inextricably linked. Action on one positively influences and impacts on the other. Ecosocietal empowerment recognises and strategically acts upon inter-relationships ensuring solutions are focussed upon both local and global levels, with the local application delivering the greatest immediate effect, leading to global improvement opportunities.
To think One-Time; One-Time Sister, One-Time Brother, One-Place Everywhere; sets One-Time as the very fabric that binds us in the expanse of All-Time. Therefore, One-Time, is universal. Now is the Time that is charged with the energy for current and future solutions. The only way forward is as One, in One-Time!
Embracing and Advancing Knowledge and Wisdom.
It is about Respect, Rights and Recognition
In the emerging global knowledge economy, a country’s ability to build and mobilise knowledge capital, is equally essential for sustainable development, as the availability of physical and financial capital. (World Bank, 1997)
In mainstream society, there appears to be a growing global realisation of spirituality in many forms, perhaps a tiring of a perceived spiritual limbo. Is there a growing realisation that overindulgence is placing society in peril? Is humanity beginning to collectively awaken to the indigenous model of ‘all we need is just enough, some to serve, some to share, some to spare? Sustainable harvest! A sustainable approach long before sustainability was even coined. In 1987 (Current understanding of the often-interchangeable terms sustainability and sustainable development can be traced to the United Nation’s Brundtland Commission Report of 1987.)
The roots of indigenous knowledge, formed in the natural systems by which groups thrived as integral influencers encompass the skills, experiences and insights necessary to maintain or improve lives in a time when awareness and sincerity signified more than rhetoric.
Indigenous knowledge focussed on participation in a single biosphere must be included in contemporary decision making, brought forward and applied in the modern context. Indigenous knowledge and practice evolved through gradually changing environments has passed through generations, closely interwoven with strong, intrinsic cultural values.
The immediate and long-term continuance of ecosystems through improved management of humanity’s pressures, necessitates a similar societal integrity and strength. Government and corporate control over societal needs and desires, fuelled by ignorance and arrogance which exacerbates incompetence, is at a tipping point. This incompetence intensifies society’s need for positive solutions involvement. Practical systems support, through a focus upon the Earth and atmosphere as a single biosphere will allow minimal change for maximum benefit, acting locally with global effect.
It is time for society to share common direction in effective seamless solutions. We need a shift of energy from rhetoric to regeneration and revitalisation through reciprocity.
To foster such requires the advancement to ‘Greed Free Agreements’. It is time we practiced what is preached as an industrialised society. Corporate Social Responsibility is perhaps one of the most widely used modern oxymoron, when put in this context.
To quote Bill Mollison: If we become extinct because of factors beyond our control, then we can at least die with pride in ourselves, but to create a mess in which we perish by our own inaction makes nonsense of our claims to consciousness and morality.
Indigenous knowledge and practice has value and relevance to all peoples and projects. True reconciliation; racial, environmental and spiritual, evolves through societal awareness and acceptance.
I ‘Worimi’ – ‘We Woreemi’
We saw the sails come to these pristine waters and temperate shores, the cedars fall, our hopes erode, the sharks die, you call us ‘Worimi’,
We saw the swamps red with our peoples’ blood and landscapes raped to profit the few, things our hearts and minds dwell in sadness upon,
All this after we welcomed you, taught you, followed you and believed in you,
We could teach you again, except our souls die in the tresses of tape, you tell us steers our ways,
Our promises stolen, our fears true,
When will our land understand the brutality of your foolishness, greed and deceptions,
Take our souls, we dare you to try, take our land, but not in our eyes,
We are a proud people, with our dreaming, we ‘Woreemi’ will always be free.
See the video presentation Worimi Woman on the ESS website home page/videos
The Macaw Conundrum; loss of habitats and species through misplaced trust & hope.
Trust, is believing an entity will deliver as promised.
Hope, is Some-One Else, Some-Where Else, Some-Other Time
With the climate change debate, whatever one’s position, which all are welcome to as individuals; once again we saw the need to go forward to the 1960’s in marches of the masses! Another ardent public plea by learned and societally passionate peoples, turning to the streets because the plethora of modern communication techniques continually fail to get the message across to those, who pledged to listen, yet lack open eyes and ears. To involve ourselves in the advancement of democratic eco-societal sustainable development is to ensure we have a voice in our societal responsibility and destiny. We must question the continued lesser consideration of humanity’s thus-far greatest global discussion. The demands that consenting society be reliant on someone else's less sustainable system, is surely in itself intergenerationally unsustainable. We are at a point in evolution where we have the ability to ensure all species and generations to follow, continue to prosper in the biosphere we call Earth, to which we all have an obligation. We have a global situation where commercially oriented models allow the nominated few, with often little-more qualification than popular pomposity, to deliver accumulation and exacerbation of problems without sound, accountable societally beneficial perspective.
Society is unfortunately coerced to continually endure those whose arrogance exacerbates their own incompetence?
The combined intellect of global societies, capable of conceiving the most complex and critical of solutions is dwarfed by self-levied entitlement. Will it come down to the conundrum of “The Last Macaw”, perched in the dwindling remnants of the last rainforest, staring out at distant clouds of vapours it does not understand?
When the last tree has been cut down, the last fish caught, the last river poisoned, only then will we realise that one cannot eat money. Native American saying
It is up to society as a whole to advance the continual emphasising of problems into practical participative solutions. We actually have among us the essential ingredients and the resources to accomplish eco-societal sustainability. With the appropriate attitude, the will to implement essential principles, and the adherence to, and guidance of, practised ethics, eco-societal solutions are achievable realities. Natural biogenic solutions that support ecologies, facilitating sustainable growth can be progressively applied through simple multidisciplinary science.
It is imperative that progression encompasses a philosophy of cooperation, working with nature and society, employing thoughtful observation and practice to guide resulting positive outcomes. As a species, we tend to continually make financially focussed change ahead of just respect for environmental and societal consequences. There is an imbalance in the way we view economic/commercial and ecological/societal value, based on hope, reliant that Some-One Else will do it. Perhaps this is the reason so many governments are left holding the bag for so many delinquent and profit depleted resources projects across the globe.
It is time for unhindered sensible solutions discussion and delivery.
Society is too intelligent to ignore growing global issues. Even if the self-levied few are not!
Eco-societal sustainability advancement through the employment of thoughtful observation and practice in ethically governed models is an achievable reality. The Earth Sustaining Sciences Group focuses energies on immediately implementable practical over technical learning and all-natural low-risk solutions design and delivery.
Earth Sustaining Sciences focuses on a Shared Success model.
Earth Sustaining Sciences Proprietary Limited Delivers World-First Viable and Sustainable Alumina Waste “Red Mud” Solutions.
The by-product of the Bayer process bauxite refining, Red Mud, is extremely caustic, and historically has been difficult and expensive to treat with traditional technologies. Earth Sustaining Sciences has delivered what is understood to be the first known financially and environmentally viable and sustainable red mud waste management process. Earth Sustaining Sciences and the Earth Sustaining Sciences Institute has demonstrated their SABR process ability to immediately ameliorate the red mud issue delivering all-natural neutralisation and rehabilitation advancement.
Neutralising Red Mud
Four-years of work has culminated in a proven solution, consisting of multiple SABR process, single and multiple cell bio-reactors delivering effective, minimal risk, practical remediation.
Solutions delivering multiple biological manifold reaction patterns have been consistently identified in effective all-natural, localised microbial column systems. Data derived from initial single cell reactor stages was used to construct a multi-stage, multiple-biological manifold system which was continuously fed a 50/50 combination of red mud and caustic processing effluent. The SABR process successfully treated the caustic effluent on every occasion reducing the pH from 13+ pH to 6+ pH with the ability to balance at a desired neutral associated level, at a flow rate many times higher than design optimum utilised in a full-scale system; thus, demonstrating robustness of process and resistance to all tested operational and potential accidental flow rate fluctuations and contaminant exacerbations.
The effect of degrees of neutralisation and societal gain
If red mud is systematically, all-naturally neutralised utilising the ESS SABR process, the commodity no longer remains a long-term risk, becoming available for secondary utilisation as a commercial and environmental asset. A progressive function of the SABR process is enhanced all-natural biological solutions liquors utilisation in flushing red mud stockpiles and tailings dams, in a continuing stepped remediation process. The progress of the partially treated effluents through the mass and into secondary SABR systems improves the precipitation of contaminants, continually reducing insitu risk while passively remediating the issues. It should be noted that at 7pH most alkali soluble metals are removed from the effluent however, should some metal species remain in solution the SABR process tuning can drop the pH well into the acid range, bio-stripping metals before return the liquor to neutral allowing environmentally stable water release.
Furthermore, it is important to realise that the effective process requires minimal pumping and no chemical dosing. The process is self-sustaining, low cost, low energy, self-stabilising and requires minimal servicing. The process has also delivered successful solutions for Phosphogypsum stockpile remediation.
PEQ - Practiced Ethics Quotient
Ethics are widely uttered, yet what is the measurement of practiced ethics?
Surely those in governance that deliver lamentable laws which disregard respect, rights and recognition of the environment and affected parties, deserve question. Just as individuals who constantly claim highly ethical presence yet demonstrate contempt for greed free agreements.
The three-primary personal ethics a person identifies with, surely considered the very substance of humanity in respect to everyday life and dealings with people, environment and circumstance, may simply be:
- Respect, Rights and Recognition,
- Positive functional participation, and
- Shared Success in all endeavours.
The modern world has a more complicated position on ethics than older societies. This complexity is perhaps due to our expanded understanding of the natural world. Talk of how ethical one is, without practicing ethics is surely unethical, as acting without practiced ethics promotes self-serving agendas. With practiced ethics, modern society has a greater focus for, and realisation of, common benefit.
To quote Bill Mollison; “It has become evident that unity in people comes from a common adherence to a set of ethical principles, each of us perhaps going our own way, at our own pace and within the limits of our resources, yet all leading to the same goals, which in our case is that of a living, complex, and sustainable earth. Those who agree on such ethics, philosophies, and goals form a global nation.” How do current global ethics hold up to societal scrutiny of Shared Success in People, Planet and Prosperity?
Measurement of Practical Ethics is Worthy of Thought!
The Power of Beneficial Change
Fear is often the manifestation of misrepresented truth. Once the truth is known beneficial change occurs.
Eco-societal empowerment stimulates opportunity for shared success through the achievement of beneficial change.
Triggers for beneficial change are the realisation of need and ability. Systems’ change is bought about by change in people and circumstance. Functional design through thoughtful observation is a catalyst for beneficial change. Pattern understanding in design and application results in increased beneficial outcomes, i.e. the quality and quantity of yield.
Sensible and sensitive minimum change for maximum benefit leads to optimal reciprocating utilisation of energy, and resources and empowers sustainable advancement. The rehabilitation of disturbed environments into sustainable land and water use can be delivered through natural biological solutions and the utilisation of polyculture Permaculture initiatives. By applying the principle of scalable, intensive diverse management through incremental beneficial change, improvements outweigh effort. A shift in mindset, to focus upon unilaterally viable solutions that deliver necessary change.
For example, in many areas, artisanal mining has become environmentally and societally destructive. If the pattern continues, the ongoing destruction of arable lands will cripple current and future community food production. The solution that benefits all is to design artisanal mining practices in cooperation with rehabilitation practices to account for simplicity in management of the disturbed lands and waters into readily sustainable environmental polyculture, inclusive of intergenerationally prosperous food and industrial agriculture for both local and wider commercial benefit; driven by the mindset shift.
Earth Sustaining Sciences multidisciplinary science application to agriculture (polyculture Permaculture) allows for exponential progression which appropriately synthesises various disciplines to reach rapidly deliverable eco-societally sound solutions to both simple and complex situations. In this case, the multidisciplinary science application refers to the research and knowledge determined set of flexible activities that synergistically transform the environment for the societal serving production of animals and plants. The technically achieved solutions are simply applied utilising techniques comprising the continuation and enhancement of naturally occurring biological processes focusing upon minimum change for maximum benefit including research and development of:
- Production techniques, (land use, companion cropping, fertigation),
- Improving productivity, quantity and quality with appropriate natural change,
- Minimising the effects of pests on crop, animal and natural production systems,
- Cooperatively maximising environmental and crop health and vitality,
- Transformation of primary products value adding into single stage processes,
- Prevention and correction of adverse environmental effects (soil degradation,
- excess water use, over fertilisation, waste management and energy consumption),
- Balanced theoretical/practical crop production and ecology modelling,
- Effective use of the various sciences relating to agricultural resources and the environment, i.e. soil science, agro-climatology, biology of crops and animals (crop science, animal science and their included sciences, ruminant nutrition, animal welfare), economics, rural sociology and agricultural engineering,
- Balance between terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems through interface enhancement of both upstream and downstream outcomes.
We must replace rhetoric that continually highlights issues, with committed, actual, solutions delivery.
It is time to walk the talk!
The only ethical decision is to take responsibility for our own existence and that of the generations to follow.
Achieving practical solutions through shared success is a priority for holistic intergenerational advancement. Simplicity is the key. The constant rhetoric regarding the bigger picture, (the talk), globally distracts from opportunities for the resolution of other immediately solvable widespread high-impact issues, (the walk) and thwarts high value, localised eco-societal beneficial outcomes.
Governments that deliver lamentable laws and governance which disregard respect, rights and recognition of the land, environment and affected parties, continue to place accountability for eco-societal degradation at the feet of the mining, industrial and agricultural entities. Mining, industrial and agricultural entities, expertly return the accountability firmly to the feet of the governments that deliver lamentable laws and governance, maintaining the periphrastic cycle. Relying upon Hope; (some-one else, some-where else, some-other time), seldom if ever delivers the ever-necessary solutions.
The need to focus attention on eco-societal solutions utilising all-natural bioremediation and environmental agriculture (Polyculture Permaculture) is imperative. Especially, in environments, predominantly highly degraded through resources extraction, processing and monoculture agriculture activities, regardless of the applied methodologies historically followed and claimed to be societally appropriate.
Biosphere serving solutions, delivered by enhanced naturally occurring processes, rapidly revitalise disturbed environments.
SABR system for treating process affected water and soil
Complex chemistries often result in a system where conditions appropriate to strip one class of contaminants is conducive to stabilisation of others in solution. SABR allows serial reactor implementation using different sets of bio-cells, such that consecutive manifolds can control all contaminants. SABR can rapidly, naturally and cost effectively treat acidic and alkaline process affected water and soil, (0-14 pH) reducing metals, metalloids and other contaminants to a standard that allows their safe use, disposal on site, or discharge off site with negligible risk, within compliance requirements. SABR is simply and quickly implemented. Initial tailoring of the approach is through wet chemistry, and small scale on-site pilot reactors to determine site specific bio-tuning and demonstrate the ability of a full-scale system. The bio-tuning process allows optimisation of the SABR system to site specific donor geology, commodity beneficiation processes, water chemistry and climate. Following more than twenty years of development and field proving, SABR has demonstrated effectiveness in waters associated with coal mines, gold mines, platinum mines, iron mines, phosphate refinery effluents, phosphogypsum effluents, acid refinery effluents, poly-mineral, rare earth element and radiogenic element bearing effluents, power station effluents, fly ash effluents, agriculture, and coal, gold, phosphate and iron tailings facilities. In all cases, SABR enabled remediation of the disturbed ecology and rapid re-invigoration of riverine, riparian, lacustrine, wetland, littoral and soil systems.
Environmental Agriculture Solutions in COMMERCIAL polyculture agriculture and polyculture permaculture food cropping
Earth Sustaining Sciences is a uniquely positioned solutions group that sees environmental and agricultural management as an all-encompassing philosophy. We believe agricultural solutions are achieved by utilising cost effective appropriate approaches, employing all-natural applications, managing resources and delivering intergenerational societal advancement. Industrially, environmental solutions mean delivering projects of enduring value for all stakeholders, supporting, protecting and enhancing natural resources, industrial development, biodiversity and human capital development. Our agricultural solutions practitioners are an integral part of the Earth Sustaining Sciences global team as specialists in assessment, analysis, design, sciences, economics and management.
Environmentally Sustainable Solutions are always achievable through holistic integrated approaches.
Transition, succession and niches in space and time
Transition commences at a point where a change is determined necessary. At this point we have an equi-potential realisation; from any event, any number of events can and will happen. These triggers may be natural, industrial or societal or a combination of any, and predominantly are.
In designed secession, the interface between natural and man-made occurrences are synergistically employed and advanced. Holistically oriented sets of stepped solutions are applied to achieve desired outcomes. In the situation where lands and waters are contaminated by systems-effecting substances, industrial agriculture commences with commercial outcome designed phyto-transpirational crops to further progressively reduce toxic elements in preparation for human and stock relevant commodities. This allows intergenerationally advancing solutions, driven by risk reduced income achievement. The importance is to achieve the output of one system being the input to the next.
Collectively, we have at our service, the advantage of niches in space and time, which assist placement and scheduling to produce progressive maximum benefit.
Empowerment – The Key to Solutions
When empowerment is abilitY-building through initiative prompting information sharing decisions, beneficial solutions result.
Eco-societal empowerment, nurtured through skills improvement, motivation, and access to resources enables a widening of perspectives in opportunities and the realisation of desired positive outcomes. A process that positively defines important issues, fostering achievable solutions development and application, advances through sensible multi-dimensional societal involvement.
Hence, Eco-societal empowerment can focus upon and addresses the socio-cultural balance of ecology and the effectors, the political and economic determinants, with the promotion of abilities in invaluable, realised, rapid solutions delivery. The local and the global are intrinsically connected, one can inspire and effect the other. Eco-societal empowerment recognises and acts advantageously upon relationships aiming to ensure shared success at local levels that can directly, positively affect global well being. Cooperative shared-success participatory approaches through discussion encouraging information transfer, increasing knowledge and awareness, results in positive critical thinking advancement and beneficial management of change.
To quote the Kenan Institute for Ethics:
“Environmental justice is the principle that all people should have equal protection from environmental harms and equal access to environmental benefits. Yet, communities often struggle to achieve environmental equity as they engage in efforts to build more sustainable communities. Projects that incorporate environmental equity into the planning process, implementation procedures, and targeted outcomes may be able to avoid community disruption and displacement and increase the overall quality life and wellbeing for community members.”
Information is only a potential resource, until acted upon. The Earth Sustaining Sciences Institute model delivers shared-success through multidisciplinary practical over technical learning; the simple application of developed management, information and all-natural biotechnology combined with the design science of Bill Mollison, the “father of Permaculture.”
The principle of stability according to Mollison, states, “it is not the number of diverse elements in a design that leads to stability, it is the number of beneficial connections between these components.” It is the synergy of diversity and stability that empowers sustainability.
Viable, Achievable, Sensible solutions are our combined societal responsibility.
It is sometimes enough to catch a glimpse of natural science, and be able to simply, prosperously apply it.
The true awareness of sustainable environments through societally applied solutions is universally permeating.
Evolutionary biologist Ernst Mayr, wrote that Darwin’s theory of evolution “caused a greater upheaval in man’s thinking than any other scientific advance since the rebirth of science in the Renaissance.”
The observation of nature, the works of man, society and practical life, form the college in which the true education of contemporary society is simply and truthfully advanced.
Eco-societal solutions to the majority of the planet’s environmental dilemmas are simple!
The current and future need for the remediation and rehabilitation of disturbed and polluted lands and waters will continue to coincide with the need for increased natural food and energy production. The solution is to simultaneously resolve both dilemmas using symbiotic regenerative practice managed by the application of multi-disciplinary science in beneficial functional design.
It is sometimes enough to catch a glimpse of natural science, and be able to simply, prosperously apply it. The outcomes of every great science conquest eventually becomes public property. Professional scientists endure long periods of research and hypothesis, obliged to struggle in the midst of error and falsehood; but when the truth is gained at length, often in spite of them, it eventually shines forth clear and simple in all its ability. If appropriately supported, all are able to understand applied environmental and societal sciences, as if always known, with minimal effort quickly achieving maximum benefit. It is a truth which now and henceforward forms a part of the universal inheritance.
The true awareness of sustainable environments through societally applied solutions is universally permeating. We are long past the outmoded rhetoric highlighting the planet’s problems, by those who leave change to Hope; someone else, somewhere else, some other time. The focus has grown with the ability to deliver solutions. Talk affecting tens of millions is cheap; yet solutions are cheaper and of greater value. Holistic practical solutions delivery will achieve simple, effective eco-societal advancements.
The question is thus simplified, for it is so much nearer to its solution. Increasingly, the speech of governments, economists and traders is being taken up by positive evolutionary ecological, environmental and societal solutions revolutionists? The law of the strongest will not always necessarily benefit commerce. In fact, in nature, often, it is the butterfly-effect that is the demise of the predator. Realisation of global environmental and allied societal solidarity is rapidly increasing. The deliverables of science are permeating all levels and the truth is becoming common property, commanding an evolving priority in community, industry and government, eco-societal solutions delivery.
It is Really So Simple!
It Is Really So Simple!
History DISPLAYS ruins of civilisations demonstrating, without A form of sustainable agriculture, SOCIETAL stability IS rISKED.
The current need for the remediation and rehabilitation of disturbed and polluted lands and waters coincides with the need for increased natural food and energy production. The solution is to simultaneously resolve both dilemmas using symbiotic regenerative practice managed by the application of multi-disciplinary science in beneficial design. Earth Sustaining Sciences (ESS) has a pragmatic approach to agricultural science as a broad multidisciplinary field of biology; one that encompasses natural, economic and social sciences in the understanding and practice of sustainable systems. The ESS multidisciplinary science application to agriculture (polyculture Permaculture) draws appropriately from various disciplines to reach rapidly deliverable eco-societally sound solutions to situations ranging from the simple to the complex. The multidisciplinary science application refers to the research and knowledge determined set of flexible activities that sustainably transform the environment for the societal serving production of animals and plants. The simply applied solutions focusing upon minimum change for maximum benefit promote continuation and enhancement of naturally occurring biological processes. The sustainable balance between terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems is achieved by collectively enhancing both upstream and downstream outcomes through all-natural symbiotic polyculture management and tailored processes.

Eco-societal reforms need to centre upon:
Economic, environmental and societal Viability
The economic management of the environment, the rehabilitation of disturbed lands, primarily those disturbed through resources exploitation and agriculture and the growing issues surrounding, sustained clean water resources and the allied societal issues are endemic risks to intergenerational prosperity. Earth Sustaining Sciences have economic, impartial solutions to such risks including methodologies for eco-societal prosperity (economic, ecological and societal prosperity), ‘pathways frameworks’ for projects of national value through environmental management and community economic advancement. The frameworks are the driving precursors to eco-societal sustainability through achievable economic solutions to mining and resources exploitation legacies through domestic and commercial environmental agriculture. The mentored and coached programmes support the creation of opportunities for significant reductions in reliance on government resources, through the ability of self-determined community to growth. The primary requisite is governance grounded belief in people, practice and prosperity. The desired outcome is the delivery of culturally endorsed nationally unified economic self-determination through remediation and management of poor quality water, soils and environments to deliver sustainable management that provides commercial permaculture with a view to local community businesses being the primary beneficiaries of the generated prosperity. Earth Sustaining Sciences petitions that in company with communities, government, global financial associations and private industry, the effective delivery of multilateral prosperity motivating ‘principal solutions pathways’ that provide mutually desired outcomes is readily achievable. The time for technical studies is over; it is the time for economic, practical solutions delivery.
Earth Sustaining Science’s approach to intergenerational serving solution can be immediately adapted across multiple communities. The five prime initiatives for eco-societal solutions and sustainable intergenerational economic prosperity advancement (SIEPA) developments are a combination of locally and regionally operated, nationally governed, standout projects that can culminate in local, regional and international commodities trading.
- Long-term Rapid Results Eco-Societal Environmental Rehabilitation,
- Sustainable Commercial and Environmental Agriculture Projects,
- Sustainable High Value Bio Mass Projects delivering substantial employment.
Immediate national agenda supporting local solutions Achievement
It is important to recognise that there is no quick fix to overcoming the greater issues and the associated plight of communities, however there is a functional and economically achievable one. It will take some time, investment and a transparent commitment from all parties to work together to deliver rapidly visible, lasting improvements. Earth Sustaining Sciences suggests the development of a modified model for remote education and training participation and employment services being linked to environmental and agricultural remediation and rehabilitation.
Earth Sustaining Sciences has a history of successful corporate and community level delivery of functional solutions aligned to government, industry and community. Systems are developed through research and global, practical implementation experience and community and industry knowledge, support and understanding.
The SABR process has the ability to treat all levels of acid mine drainage (AMD), extreme alkaline process drainage, and other metals and organic reagent contaminated waters and soils. SABR allows reduction of unwanted, sub-compliant water volumes utilising tailored bioreactors to correct pH issues at all levels (0 -14 pH) and remove metals, metalloids and other contaminants; decreasing contamination of water, soil and the environment, thus reducing risk. SABR is scalable to any required size and throughput using open systems. In situations where space is at a premium or contaminants may be especially hazardous, SABR can be implemented in closed systems. Complex chemistries often result in a system where conditions appropriate to strip one class of contaminants are conducive to stabilisation of others in solution. SABR allows serial reactor implementation using different sets of bio-cells, such that consecutive manifolds can control all contaminants. SABR can rapidly, naturally and cost effectively treat AMD/ARD and process waters to a standard that allows their safe use or disposal on site, or discharge off site with negligible risk and within compliance requirements. SABR is quick to implement and quick to bring online. Initial tailoring of the approach is conducted through wet chemistry, followed by pilot reactors to determine a site-specific bio-tuning and demonstrate that the results the full-scale system will deliver.

Growing Importance Naturally
Plant bio stimulants contain substance(s) or micro-organisms whose function when applied to plants or the rhizosphere is to stimulate natural processes to enhance/benefit nutrient uptake, nutrient efficiency, tolerance to abiotic stress, and crop quality. Natural bio stimulants are a critical ingredient in sustainability and can dramatically reduce the use of ecologically oppressing chemical enhancement and fertilisation.
BioGrow is a phyto-nutrient accelerating growth system for crops and rehabilitation plantings, including dry or water-soak plantings. The system is also a permeable, soils and particulates binder and stabiliser and can be applied at concentration and saturation rates tailored to the receiving medium and plant requirements. The solution binds the soil assisting in erosion and dehydration reduction/prevention, allowing permeation through the bound surface, maintaining the light seal when dry. BioGrow can be blended with BioSeal and BioSeal Light to further manage surfaces, evaporation, dust and areas as required. BioGrow improves the growth of crops and rehabilitation plantings, in dry to water soak plantings.
Earth Sustaining Sciences believes that to achieve positive change within industry and communities, a decisive meaningful, prosperity positive national and community centric mindset is imperative. One that is community focussed to apply the necessary changes to improve circumstances for present and future success, while equally maintaining national and community values. Communication leading to accurate understanding is necessary to align attitudes with positive mindsets. Intrinsic motivation is the strongest positive support mechanism that is most often in the first instance, prompted and driven by extrinsic strategies, allowing it to be coached to success.
Earth Sustaining Sciences has a clear, proven track record of building the System - Mindset - Management models that embrace practices necessary for programmes to prosper. Actioning joint ownership of prosperity delivering projects, providing positive tripartite outcomes through balanced community, government and industry inputs and receipts is the path to transparent, accountable shared success. This transparent, accountable tripartite approach strengthens family and community engagement, improves the capacity to respond to government, community and industry initiatives and enable all to achieve improving-decisions and prosperity.
Sensibility - simple, necessary, practical implementation
Earth Sustaining Sciences has an established ‘seven pillar approach’ to intergenerational economic prosperity that is firmly believed to synchronise with the ‘three primary imperatives’ of communities.
Respect must be mutual, it must be earned and it must be honoured
The position of the continued delivery of funds, simply because there appears to be a need, a programme or policy dictates, must be reviewed. Communities must be encouraged to be self-reliant, self-determined and to embrace strong transparently partnered involvement in solutions. This system permits and promotes the effective delivery of a model, which encourages understanding, while delivering the combined knowledge that the commitment to, and the enabling of, future prosperity rest with community. Community issues need to be resolved by community, with appropriate provision and understanding that they can and will be suitably supported in combined approaches to develop and deliver intergenerationally sound solutions.
We all have the right to be respected, heard, considered and recognised
These rights must be honoured and parallel. Rights carry responsibility, a fact not always considered, accepted, understood or appreciated. There is little difference between individual and community rights. In a democratic model, they are delivered by individuals and community as much as government. The act of an individual seriously affects community rights and the act of community can seriously effect governmental rights just as acts of community can seriously restrict or enhance individual positions. There are no excuses for the denial of rights, regardless of social standing, age, gender, political or cultural/religious disposition.
Recognition is a positive acknowledgement usually earned through the demonstration of worthy character
A return to culturally astute community focus as a driver of commercial prosperity; Practice, Arts, Language, Lore and Law, will develop true recognition for the identification of those in the community with deserved cultural and practical abilities. True community governance (guided by nation governance) must be returned to communities (in consultation with government) to allow the knowledge holders and bonafide leaders from country to arbitrate in community councils, and with the government under government advice, not constant legal challenge over financial rights through perceived relationships or claims.
Earth Sustaining Sciences has a two part seven pillar approach to intergenerational eco-societal prosperity:
- Community engagement,
- Participation recognition and accredited education and training,
- Local project ownership, business development and employment,
- Progressive community development,
- Health and medical advancement,
- Societal sports and recreation participation, and
- Land, housing, agriculture and infrastructure advancements.
Earth Sustaining Sciences ‘seven pillar dual approach’ to intergenerational economic prosperity synchronises with intergenerational community directions, initiatives and deliverables. Earth Sustaining Sciences will demonstrate that a tripartite approach will deliver locally led economic prosperity that will drive community initiative incentivised, sustainable solutions.
- Projects of national value appropriated through national governance,
- Eco-societal balance between, government, industry and community,
- Transparent systems and practical services delivery,
- Meaningful education and training,
- Culturally endorsed community engagement,
- Local, regional and national employment and business development,
- National governance in intergenerational community support and development.
The delivery is easily and rapidly implementable in shared success models, enabling industry, government and community to jointly deliver achievable reality in economic, environmental and societal solutions that deliver national values, home grown intergenerational prosperity.
The first imperative
The participation functional reward system to actively engage all elements of community in a comprehensive projects of national value supportive lifecycle model that demonstrates solutions and encourages involvement based upon the concept that, “Involvement Encourages Understanding.”
The second imperative
To deliver concurrent targeted solutions with all members of community including at risk youth and young adults, while allowing both active and passive involvement from all based upon the concept that, “Understanding Encourages Achievement.”
Eco-Societal Patterns-An Existing Awareness
Patterns in Progress – Application of beneficial influence
Morphic resonance, according to the theory developed by biologist Rupert Sheldrake, is paranormal influence by which a pattern of events or behaviour can facilitate subsequent occurrences of similar patterns; a process whereby self-organising systems inherit a memory from previous similar systems. In its most general formulation, morphic resonance means that the so-called laws of nature are more like habits. The hypothesis of morphic resonance also leads to a radically new interpretation of memory storage in the brain and biological inheritance. Biological inheritance need not be all coded in the genes or epigenetic modifications of the genes; much of it depends on morphic resonance from previous members of the species. Thus, everyone inherits a collective memory from past members of the species, and contributes to the collective memory, affecting other members of the species in the future.
According to scientist, Bill Mollison, the father of Permaculture, if we are to reach an understanding of the basic patterns of natural phenomena, we will have evolved a powerful tool for design, and found a linking science applicable to many disciplines. These forms and processes capitalise productive energies. The final act of the designer, once components have been assembled, is to make a sensible pattern assembly of the whole. Tinkering through the ages, met by moves and countermoves often referred to as evolution, streamline these forms as fluctuations in each environment. It is this patterning that permits elements to flow and function effectively in beneficial relationships.
The delivery of simple, informed solutions to complex challenges is an Achievable Reality.
Utilising a combination of existing patterns and multi-disciplinary science is the way forward.
Some have speculated that the Torus, a recurring pattern found in atoms and galaxies alike, is a universal template for equilibrium and sustainability.
Awareness of existing patterns, frames the future for effective design.
Eco-Societal Prosperity-The Way Forward
Positive societal, environment and industry growth encompassing practice, arts, language, lore and law.
Societal mutualism is paramount in developing and maintaining intergenerationally endorsed advancements in industry, government and community while reducing unnecessary erosion of ecology, economics and culture. The long-term objective is to improve the prosperity and cultural stability of the world’s growing population in a sustainable framework of improving equilibrium in the Earth's biosphere, discussed as the single ecosystem comprising the earth and all living organisms.)
(Earth Sustaining Sciences Foundation 2000)
Earth Sustaining Sciences
The Earth Sustaining Sciences Group creates and delivers eco-societally sustainable solutions that appreciate community, industry and government shared success advancement and eco-societal prosperity across multidimensional societal systems. The focus is forward thinking, partnerships delivering equally intergenerational advantageous solutions.
- Societally sustainable solutions,
- Remediation of the Earth’s environmental challenges,
- Intergenerational resilience.
The Earth Sustaining Sciences Foundation focuses upon Shared Success, embodying Greed Free Agreements.
Sustainable societal solutions, seamlessly delivered through renewables projects to generate immediate and long-term valued employment and transparent intergenerational economic and societal prosperity.
Advancing intergenerational prosperity, preserving culture and values.
Many traditional cultures, exposed to pressures through economics and absorption of global mechanisms, particularly prevalent in adolescents, voraciously soak up the freely available popular media of the developed nations. This most often encourages aspiration to perceived opportunities and entitlement to wealth, leisure and status that accompanies the interpretation of ‘western’ or going ‘global’. The expansion of the interweb to include mobile phones and low cost global internet access are accelerating this process. The unfortunate conundrum is that in many cases, the endemic power of their own culture and the abundance of their own communities is not realised. The Earth Sustaining Sciences Group strongly supports the principal need to impart knowledge, based upon the methodology of practice, arts, language, lore and law; the combination of traditional, cultural and contemporary learning to create and advance opportunities in the realisation of local, regional, national and global potentials. The goal must be intergenerational prosperity advancement that symbiotically bolsters cultures and traditions with which we interact, in a sustainability framework. Trading in culture eroding traditional society in exchange for lands, lifestyles, IP, tech., and trade benefits needs to advance from simply beneficial ‘consideration’ to actual Shared Success, embodying Greed Free Agreements. The Earth Sustaining Sciences Foundation progressively seeks ways to mediate between traditional cultures and the emerging globalisation in such a way that all people develop a greater appreciation for, and value of, their heritage within wider society endorsed methodologies for management of change. This drives the preservation of all elements of cultural integrity, opening judiciously selected opportunities and advantages for appropriate and timely eco-societal advancement. The Earth Sustaining Sciences Group supports the ability to thoughtfully select the elements of globalisation that will benefit a community, whilst imbuing community with an understanding of the changes taking place and the yielded benefits. This promotes the exercising of judicial overseeing of the management of intergenerational change, direction and cultural additions, without fear of undue authoritarian oriented reactions.
Intergenerationally FOCUSED Greed Free Agreements are the basis of intergenerational prosperity.
The economic management of the environment, the rehabilitation of disturbed lands, (primarily those disturbed through mining, forestry and agriculture) and the growing issues surrounding, sustainable clean water resources and allied societal issues are endemic risks to intergenerational prosperity. Earth Sustaining Sciences and the Earth Sustaining Sciences Institute (ESS) have economic, equitable solutions to these risks and in this overview, present their methodologies for eco-societal prosperity (economic, ecological and societal prosperity), which is the driving precursor to individual, family, community and nation empowerment of eco-societal sustainability through industrial legacy solutions and commercial environmental agriculture. This overview introduces Earth Sustaining Science’s ‘pathways framework’ for projects of national value through environmental management and community economic advancement.
The mentored self-management programme supports the creation of opportunities for significant reductions in reliance on government resources, through the ability for communities to grow as self -determined generators of immediate and intergenerationally sustainable societal prosperity. This progresses parallel to the embracing of the country’s ruling political governance, essentially, achieving like-minded, co-beneficial Shared Success between community, government and private industry, grounded in the national governance model regardless of political persuasion.
The outset is belief in people, practice and prosperity beginning in the support of governance. The outcome is the delivery of culturally endorsed nationally united governance in economic self-determination through remediation and management of poor quality water, soils and environments to deliver sustainable management that provides commercial permaculture with a view to local community businesses being beneficiaries of the generated prosperity. Earth Sustaining Sciences demonstrates that in company with communities, government, global financial associations and private industry, the effective delivery of multilaterally prosperity motivating ‘principal solutions pathways’ that provide desired outcomes is readily achievable. The time for technical studies is over; it is the time for economic, practical solutions delivery.
Earth Sustaining Science’s approach to intergenerational economic prosperity can be immediately adapted across multiple communities. The five prime initiatives for Eco-Societal Solutions and sustainable intergenerational economic prosperity advancement (IEPA) developments are a combination of locally and regionally operated, nationally governed standout projects that culminate in local, regional and international commodities trading.
