United States Association of the Club of Rome (USA\COR)
is one of the National
Associations of the Club of Rome and supports the
vision and approach of the international Club
of Rome, a futurist, nonpartisan organization which
has been working to catalyze new policy initiatives and
generate concern for future generations since its
founding in 1968 by the late Aurelio Peccei.

Peccei coined the term "Global Problematique" to
describe these complex intertwined issues and problems.
Mission is to encourage both thinking and action toward
a sustainable earth. In so doing, we recognize that all
phenomena and problems are interrelated. Based upon
research, investigation, experience, and innovation
from within our group as well as from around the world,
we will present findings to leaders, governments, civil
society, and the general public in hopes of creating paradigm
shifts that will promote altering actions and policies toward
the planet as well as sustainability of life on earth.
In our individual work, lives and writings, we enact
these insights into a better future for the human race.
