PANDO ONTOLOGY FOR ECOLIBRIUM
2
By "ecolibrium," we mean a basic orientation for the Earth and society. We are inspired by "integral ecology" as used by Pope Francis in Laudato Si', which largely also describes the orientation that Episcopal Presiding Bishop Michael Curry defines under the framework of "Care of Creation," and references a framework that encompasses what John Cobb means by "ecological civilization." We have developed this ontology in order to provide a structure for organizing resources and best practices, to see both the forest and trees of concern; and to provide a systematic way of thinking about the implementation of goals and related assessment strategies. The ontology is designed to encompass the landscape of sustainability concerns, even if some will choose to emphasize certain categories over others.

4
POSITIONINGVisionWe are aiming to support a statement of vision rather than any specific political program.
5
ResourcesWe assume we are living on a finite planet with finite resources, as opposed to a planet of never-ending plenty, and that living within planetary means, and scaling back, is a necessity that must be immediately addressed rather than postponed while we continue growth-oriented policies.
6
SolutionsWe assume that technology, properly employed, can sometimes be extremely useful in creating workarouind solutions, but that it is inadequate for dealing with some of the most fundamental problems we face.
7
Time horizonWe assume that civilizational-sized changes must be implemented immediately, across the world and at all levels of society, in order to stem the catestrophic effects on the horizon.
