WHAT IS PANGEISM?

Pangeism is a philosophical movement that was developed in the 21st century as a consequence of the global climate, ecological, sanitary, political, ethical, social and economic crisis. It aims for the «peaceful sustainability of humanity on Earth» based on certain values such as global fraternity and ecosystem health. Pangeism is not a religion; it refers to a manifestation of intent, a philosophy of life that shows a specific individual and collective search. That is why pangeists, followers of pangeism, tend to introduce themselves as such in order to show through the symbolism of the term «everything they would like to improve concerning their personal and shared present» and «the goal they are working towards».

Pangeism is based on three fundamental principles: «to take care of land, water, air and biodiversity that inhabits our planet», «to take care of people» and «to share on an equal basis». Also, it establishes some minimum common and individual goals, acting as guidelines for its followers.

This movement boosts a global declaration of unity inspired by the collective paradigm of sustainability: a new cosmopolitan, fair and ecosystem-based identity whose construction is plural and free of personalism, and which is also based on common goals rather than differences.

1. To take care of land, water, air and biodiversity that inhabits our planet
2. To take care of people
3. To share on an equal basis

COMMON GOALS

Everybody has the right to join any school of thought but cannot force others to do so. Opinions and beliefs do not grant privileges to individuals nor do they inflict punishments. Everybody is free to courageously exercise their rights to freedom of thought and expression within the limits of respect and consideration for others.
3. Promote pluralism because there is more than one way to do things right.

BEHIND THE TERM

The term «Pangaea» was coined in 1912 by German geophysicist Alfred Wegner who developed the theory of continental drift. This term is derived from the Greek words pan (παν-, πάν, «all» or «as a whole») and gea (gaea in Latin, γαῖα in Geek, a derived form of the Indo-European term γῆ, «earth»); as a consequence, «Pangaea» means «all the Earth» because it denotes the prehistoric times when almost all the landmasses on Earth were grouped together in a supercontinent.

If continents were together million years ago, pangeists aim for humanity to look itself as a huge, united and interconnected society, «a citizen of the world», who recognizes the rights and duties of all human beings and species living in the biosphere. Consequently, the term «Pangaea» was used as the main root in pangeism: they say «pan-gaea», «everyone is Earth», because humanity is one with it.

In addition, the term pangeist is often used to refer to «individuals who aim for a better world and work daily towards the common good».
