In adopting the name of “Pangea”, the Foundation seeks to highlight an image: the unity of all lands. This is the cultural ideal that animates this project, in hopes of a future when all nations are part of a universal human nation, without discrimination, without aggravating differences, yet bringing out cultural differences that can be harmonized in a common ideal.
As geological science demonstrates, the continents on our planet moved apart over time, and it was in that separation that the ethnic groups, cultures and nations were formed.
Nevertheless, contact today between diverse peoples is increasing. Thanks to the cultural impetus of science, technology, art, and economy, the Earth is becoming a global entity - this time in a cultural, rather than in a geographic, sense.
The Pangea Foundation wants to contribute its efforts as a cultural entity toward the development of the arts, science and culture, fostering interchange for a wider and better understanding among peoples.
Pangea was established in the year 2000, with the purpose of fostering understanding, appreciation and tolerance among peoples. This is espcially important at this time when significant migratorymovements are producing cultural clashes - clashes which might be avoided through the spread of tolerance, non-violence and cooperation among cultures.
