Developing Solutions

EARTH Futures identifies, develops, and tests innovative solutions that improve the quality of life and sustainability of rural communities where we work. 


Through strategic alliances with local partners, we implement a holistic process that combines creativity with science and technology. We start with diagnosis, research, exhaustive analysis, and interdisciplinary collaboration to design practical and effective solutions to address the environmental, social, and technological challenges in the community. In addition to solving immediate problems, we work to anticipate and prevent future obstacles with an approach that drives long-term sustainable change for communities and global well-being.

Primary focuses
Sustainable agriculture and natural resource management  
We advance food security and sovereignty, and sustainable management and regeneration of natural resources – water, soil, and biodiversity – through best agricultural practices, resilient farming, and community participation.
Entrepreneurship and job creation
We promote new models and approaches for developing new skills with children, youth, and adults to improve quality of life and strengthen people’s commitment to their communities.
Climate change
We build practical and interactive models to strengthen climate change adaptation, mitigation, and resilience among farmers, youth, and community stakeholders in rural areas.
Inclusion and social equity
PWe foster inclusion and equity for vulnerable populations in rural communities through a comprehensive approach that empowers and develops leadership skills and provides opportunities for community growth with a positive environmental impact.
Technological innovation
We create new models that use precision agriculture, alternative energy, and other technologies along with hands-on approaches to equip farmers with the knowledge and tools they need to improve farm management and sustainable production.
