Escuela Futuro Verde offers a program that embraces the environment and the diverse cultural and linguistic population in the southern Nicoya Peninsula of Costa Rica. In the 2013 school year, EFV counted among its student community children representing an astounding 18 countries.
The Green Wave Sustainable Living Project (aka the Green Wave House or Casa de Ola Verde) is an on-going living research, demonstration, and education center for modern ecological living. Open to the public by appointment and once a month on Saturdays, our green development center is projected to open by Winter of 2016 and serve the greater Southern Pacific-side of the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica. Casa del la Ola Verde will be a living example of harmonious living for both Costa Rican residents and travelers providing visual, educational inspiration, hands on activities, and an holistic array of workshops including conscious living, permaculture, yoga, meditation, dance, art, and compassion.
Wild Sun Rescue Center is a Costa Rican non-profit association, located in the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica right on the border of the Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve. The main purpose of the rescue center is the conservation and rehabilitation of Wildlife in the southern Nicoya Peninsula. In addition to sanctuary services we offer environmental education at our center through workshops for our local community.
Green Wave acts as the green consulting service for the Electronic Music Alliance. EMA provides awareness for the generative economy paradigm, sustainability awareness to the electronic dance music community.
IRC raises money to fund projects of water, hygiene and sanitation worldwide. IRC believes the same opportunity of access to drinkable water and a decent bathroom should be given to rural communities, schools and orphanages, as ravers have at every rave festival.
Millions of students across the United States are attending school districts with no Music & Art programs. Music from a Bottle raises money through the collection of recyclables to fund Music & Art programs in schools & after-school programs. Music from a Bottle is the Electronic Music Alliance and Green Wave preferred partner for festival recycling services.
Safer Raving by Amy Raves is a harm reduction organization for the festival circuit. Safer Raving keeps festival goers safe through survival education and services such as PLURR Patrol which actively scans festival grounds for patrons that may need assistance.

CHARTER FOR COMPASSION
No one has ever become poor from giving.
Call to action upon all men and women to restore compassion to the centre of morality and religion ~ to return to the ancient principle that any interpretation of scripture that breeds violence, hatred or disdain is illegitimate ~ to ensure that youth are given accurate and respectful information about other traditions, religions and cultures ~ to encourage a positive appreciation of cultural and religious diversity ~ to cultivate an informed empathy with the suffering of all human beings—even those regarded as enemies.
