Community Sustainability Working Group (CoSWoG)

Mandate: The elucidation and scientific investigation of practical concepts for achieving Peace and Sustainability within various types of (human) communities (habitats). Currently, there area few sub-projects that have been put forward by various people at various times, each of which has been spearheading different sub-project ideas.
