When Chilopod first surveyed the Earth, they were appalled by the state of the biosphere. “Humans are destroying this planet,” they thought. But Chilopod was not deterred. They believed in humans and knew we were capable of doing better. Chilopod had come to share their knowledge in hopes that Earthlings would reverse the damage they had done.
A group of humans, small at first but steadily growing, accepted Chilopod’s challenge and committed themselves to make positive change. We believe that together we can heal the Earth and create a better future for all.
You too can join the cause. Start by taking the Chilopod pledge and commit to upholding the following ideals.

Keep learning about best practices.
Shine your magic on the world!
