About Geoversity

Our Vision

A world where humans fully embrace our unity with nature.
 

Our Mission

Creating conservation communities and empowering biocultural leaders committed to renewing and growing our unity with nature.

Geoversity is Nature’s University. Our main campus is the Mamoní Valley Preserve,  a 4,800-hectare (12,000 acres) rainforest conservancy located in one of the top biodiversity hotspots in the world, less than a two-hour drive from Panama City, Panama

Geoversity leads a growing ecosystem of individuals and organizations united in the mission of biocultural renewal. Our programs are grounded in the hard day-to-day work of watershed conservation and the fight to avert global ecological collapse, always in team with local communities, indigenous authorities, and youth activists. We offer immersive learning experiences, guided by applied science, natural design, and indigenous wisdom, for emerging and accomplished biocultural leaders.

Join us on a journey of intellectual and personal discovery, benefiting from three decades of experience empowering biocultural leaders.

Centro Mamoní in 2003 compared to how it looks in 2021

My young crew, first time out on the open sea, had the boat pointed in the right direction and the sails trimmed to perfection—all pleased with our speed through the water. However, when prompted to check our instruments, they were startled to see that we were in fact moving backwards.
Experiencing that we all operate within larger systems—like ocean currents—makes us appreciate the imperative of seeing and thinking systemically. Our best efforts at changing the world, especially human behavior, will otherwise have no positive effect.
