The United States Association
for the Club of Rome (USA\COR) is one of the National Associations of the
Club of Rome and supports the vision and approach of the
international Club of Rome,
a futurist, nonpartisan organization which has been working to
catalyze new policy initiatives and generate concern for future
generations since its founding in 1968 by the late Aurelio Peccei.
The Club of Rome seeks to promote understanding of the
interdependent global system in which we all live. It also seeks to
bring that understanding to the attention of policy makers and the
public at large.
It is the view of The Club of Rome that the major problems facing
us are of such complexity and so intertwined, that traditional
institutions and policies are no longer able to cope with them.
Furthermore, the gravity and urgency of these problems is not fully
understood. Peccei coined the term "Global Problematique" to
describe these complex intertwined issues and problems.
Mission is to encourage both thinking and action toward a
sustainable earth. In so doing, we recognize that all phenomena and
problems are interrelated. Based upon research, investigation,
experience, and innovation from within our group as well as from
around the world, we will present findings to leaders, governments,
civil society, and the general public in hopes of creating paradigm
shifts that will promote altering actions and policies toward the
planet as well as sustainability of life on earth. In our individual
work, lives and writings, we enact these insights into a better
future for the human race.
What we believe
believe in the power of ideas.
believe that the communication of ideas related to global issues
should precede setting policy, and that policy should precede

believe humanity can change to achieve sustainable natural and
believe the well-being of present and future generations depends on
the vision of concerned citizens and on their understanding of the
underlying causes of ecological and societal problems.
believe in being a catalyst for research and action on prospects for
our future survival.
encourage the publications by our members concerned with the Global

and institutions that will support life with sufficiency, equity,
and dignity for our children.
