Making Positive Contributions To Our Picture of Humanity

At HPI our mission is to create opportunities for people to learn and share about responsible living, human value before gender, race, ethnicity or nationality, and sustainability before immediacy. To do this, we take people on experience trips, host meaningful retreats and create compelling educational media. While we recognize the reality of what shapes our differences, we prefer to focus on the factor that makes us all similar, the “human factor.” Although circumstances may shape us differently, merely being human makes us similar enough that, with intentional work, we are capable of living beyond our barriers. With purposeful action we can penetrate those things that separate us.

Nothing can make more sustainable change than that which comes from a shift in personal perceptions, not only of ourselves but also of our relationships to others around us. This perception of the human factor and our reliance on one another must be personal, relational and realized through individual interactions.
