Earth Rites-Purpose  
Earth Rights Institute  
Statement of Purpose: Earth Rights Institute is dedicated to securing the democratic human right to the earth via local-to-global land value taxation and ground rent policies. Profiteering and speculation in land and natural resources has now been clearly identified as the root cause of the mal-distribution of wealth that plagues market economies. The correction lies with earth trustee policies which affirm that the earth is the common heritage of all. Earth Rights Institute associates have considerable expertise in the implementation of fiscal and public finance policies based on the earth trustee ethic. Variously known as 'geonomics,' 'ground rent collection,' 'land value recapture,' or 'land value taxation', this policy approach shifts the taxation base away from individually created wealth (labor and productive capital) and onto the land and resource base. The earth's common wealth in this way can support the needs of the community as a whole and/or be distributed as earthshare dividends directly to individuals. 

Seven Nobel prize winners and many other notables have endorsed this equitable, efficient approach to land and natural resource allocation and conservation. Various emerging movements throughout the globe now strongly recommend this policy. The United Nations Action Agenda for Habitat II urges its implementation under the Ensuring Access to Land heading in Section B (56). 

Earth Rights Institute can assist you and your community through all stages of the implementation of this policy approach, beginning with the initial education and advocacy process, through the political groundwork that may be required to obtain enabling legislation, into land assessments, establishing accurate land cadastres, and the structuring of specific fiscal instruments that will secure the collection of ground rents for the benefit of all.

Earth Site - John McConnel  
Purpose of Earth Site 
The reason for EarthSite is to get attention for the following Earth Day idea -- and  encourage earth trusteeship: "All individuals and institutions have a mutual responsibility to now act as Trustees of Earth, seeking the choices in ecology, economics and ethics that will eliminate pollution, poverty and violence, foster peaceful progress, awaken the wonder of life, and realize the best potential for the  future of the human adventure." 
Earth Site encourages everyone visiting their site to sign up as an Earth Trustee. This means that you support the preservation of our planet through environmentally sound policies, and that individuals acting in concert can help save the Earth. This Earth Trustee Registry will be placed on the Earth Site and will  enable you and others with Internet access to locate your name and know that it will be in the Memory Disk of the Star of Hope Satellite when it is launched.
