Greco's not for profit centre is Community Information Resource Center, a networking hub and information source dedicated to building a better world. We work at all levels from local to global, sharing important information, connecting people, and catalyzing the development of healthy self-reliant communities. We believe that the world is presently undergoing a metamorphic change and that every one of us has a role to play in creating peace, harmony, and an abundant, dignified life for all. As the new millennium dawns, we find our institutions and way of life in a state of crisis and ready for transformation. This is a time in which we need to rethink, reorganize, and restructure. What shall we carry over with us into the new world, and what should we leave behind? What are the foundation principles upon which we should build new organizations and institutions? How will these be projected into everyday practice and relationships?
