mission of PANGEA WORLD
is to harness the wonder of Earth’s evolutionary and ecological fabric to rewrite the geography, diplomacy, and conservation potential of the knowledge economy and set new standards of sustainability at world scale.
The pursuit of this mission integrates PANGEA WORLD's roles as:
Catalyst of “grand science themes” that can only be pursued via studies of multiple sites across the world and are beyond the existing means and logistical support for scientific research;
Architect of a business model that fortifies this endeavor with economic security along a transnational network of legacy investments and legacy estates master-planned to redefine prestige and purpose in world travel; and
Shepherd of this endeavor’s lasting benefit to the environment and humanity.
Key objectives are:
to fashion science-driven valuation of the world’s heritage wonders into an engine of leadership economies and corporate philosophies; and
to conjoin refined hospitality and frontier science to chart the “knowledge infrastructure” for cross-national strategies of sustainable development that both draw strength from and nurture the heritage yielded by Earth’s evolutionary journey.
Pangea World…a global vision to promote science and protect biodiversity as an integral part of the business plan…a global archipelago of interconnected “wonder sites” where the scientific study and preservation of nature are the explicit and formal motivation for linking sustainable economics with science.

The genius of the Pangea concept is that it presents an approach to sustainability that is firmly grounded in a business model that will provide an enduring source of revenue…Pangea World provides a model for combining science and commerce in a way that is sustainable and that meets socially desirable ends.

Pangea World, a wonderful mission…to transform the present foundations of the global economy into a knowledge-based economy…Pangea World and Culture of Peace must work together.
