smallMatters Institute acts within a single ideological imperative:
To evolve as a species, human beings must get better at serving each other.
Therefore, smallMatters Institute is dedicated to identifying and sharing examples of excellence in four areas:
1) Social betterment; 2) Sustainable development; 3) Education; and, 4) Environmental stewardship.
Together, we can change millions of lives by reinventing the human experience. Our desired outcome is to demonstrate that people lead healthier and happier lives when they use their talents and intellect in creative ways to benefit self, family, country, and humanity.
Whilst the 21st Century promises extraordinary technical advances that can improve the quality of life for millions of people, America is at a major crossroads in defining how to best share these opportunities. We intellectually acknowledge that America does not exist in a vacuum and that we must be aware of how other countries or social cultures think and act. Nonetheless, we firmly believe that the best way to contribute to the global community is to improve the way we treat each other and work together right here at home – to lead – creatively, by example.
