Vision

• A Sustainable effective Environment and Development Programs in Upper Egypt.

Mission

• To shift the balance of Egyptian policy and practice in favor of environmental justice and sustainability in upper Egypt.

Values

• We believe in sustainable development - meeting the needs of the current generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
• We believe in environmental limits - there are definite limits to what we can take from the natural environment and to the pollution and waste we can dump into the environment.
• Within those limits we believe in fair shares of the available environmental space: in particular we are aware that the impacts of damage to the environment hit the poorest in the community the hardest both at home and overseas.
• We believe in evidence based solutions to environmental problems that make life better for people while protecting the planet for future generations.
• We believe in promoting people's action, individual and collective, local, national and
• international, to tackle the environmental challenges we face.
