Man has been endowed with reason, with the power to create, so that he can add to what he's been given. But up to now he hasn't been a creator, only a destroyer. Forests keep disappearing, rivers dry up, wild life's become extinct, the climate's ruined and the land grows poorer and uglier every day. Anton Chekhov 1897

At the core of any civilization is a human culture whose drive to create, produce and celebrate its existence shapes the community and its institutions. It harnesses the environment and energy to sustain its economic growth, nurturing in turn the community identity. A thriving culture builds upon its institutional bonds, finding expression through its economic model, philosophy, art and spirituality. Sustainable economic growth and the resulting social harmony are the driving force behind innovation and progress. For as long as a culture nurtures the roots of its institutions and remains a wise guardian of its environment --- it evolves, and thrives. When institutional bonds are weakened or severed, it descends into chaos.

Our mission is to create a platform for the fusion of ideas, identifying catalysts for progress within a sustainable social and economic model. We are formulating a Promethean methodology that challenges conventional silos of knowledge in order to establish a new matrix of thinking. Promethean methodology charts the multidisciplinary transformative path to progress, and then sets out the vision that a society can rally around. To a Promethean soul, to think is to act.

What are the critical challenges today? Why are the Gods of Status Quo holding societies back, and how to escape their stifling embrace? We are challenging some firmly established ideas on the history of human progress and the role environment played in its economic manifestations. We do not believe that the abstract concepts of liberalization and reforms, divorced from the demands of the environment and the sustainable economic growth, will generate the transformative energy that makes societies evolve and thrive. The core concept of the Promethean methodology is based on a catalyst, the amber that will spark a dynamic interaction among the conflicting and complimentary demands of ecology, energy, technology, sustainable urban infrastructure, sustainable economy, modern culture and its institutions.
As the barriers to change crack, progress is born.
