Our strategic plan focuses on the release
of human potential to galvanize
a proactive culture for global wellbeing
We are united with our partners through a common bond of unrequited commitment to spearhead the challenging effort necessary to foster paradigmatic shifts in thinking, thinking that focuses primarily on the acquisition of moral and spiritual capacity in human development. This approach, we believe, is necessary if the objectives set forth by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in its Millennium Development Goals (MDG) are to be achieved.

- Moral High Ground
Prallagon was established to encourage the release of human potential with focused intent on promoting a proactive culture of moral leadership. Such leadership serves as both beacon and haven for an anxious humanity, endorses human entitlement, fosters rule of law, sanctions justice in all undertakings, and introduces ethical performance criteria into systems of governance. It is leadership with integrity, one that exercises forbearance, remains incorruptible, exhibits moral courage, retains capacity for personal sacrifice, and remains committed to the challenge.
Mandate for Justice
We work in cooperation with our partners to promote global wellbeing by strengthening efforts to achieve social and economic sustainability and establish an ecologically friendly environment. This is accomplished by introducing ethical performance criteria into systems of governance; a criterion that improves administrative and managerial responsibility, heightens moral leadership capability, negates nefarious activity, and encourages the pursuit of justice in all undertakings.
Those moral and spiritual principles that form the core of Prallagon activities and that of its trilateral respondent provide the impetus for building partnerships to assist in accomplishing development objectives. This is in line with stated requirements and guidelines expressed in Agenda 21, the document defined as “a comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United Nations System, Governments, and Major Groups in every area in which human [footprints] impacts the environment”.
Leadership requires associated administrative and managerial skills to confront current global situations that demand effective strategies to address myriad crises. The world is faced with environmental degradation, global warming, desertification, HIV/AIDS, failed states, unbridled corruption, social decline, moral bankruptcy, excess materialism, military conflicts, spiritual stagnation, armed aggression, and a host of others too numerous to mention. The world stagnates for lack of effective and durable leadership to deal with this onslaught. Solutions being promoted are often prone to failure, or at best achieve limited results because they fail to directly address the root cause of problems being experienced. Faced with declining resources and political uncertainties often global in scale, many efforts remain unsupported as a mixture of special interests and partisan divides compete for the spoils. Some of the best efforts to correct disparities are often marginalized because they were viewed as being too radical, or harboring a subversive nature, considered non-expedient, or simply not ‘circumstance appropriate’. Good ideas based on 'lessons learned' are often neglected while problems exponentially spiral out of control. Every thoughtful and caring individual remains dumbfounded by the lack of human will to address these concerns in forthright manner to effectively resolve these problems.
Apathetic behavior bordering criminal insanity continues to lay waste to the natural environment. Social stability is tenuous at best, and human initiative has been dampened. This weakening of human will to deal effectively with crises must no longer be tolerated, nor denying that these self-induced and perpetuating circumstances are directly attributable to an insatiable desire for excessive material consumption, and blatant disregard for protecting the very essence which nurtures and sustains life on this planet.
The tendency to rely solely on advancing technologies to solve our problems without proper consideration for human compassion and justice is taking fallaciousness to the extreme. If human relationships were as advanced as present-day technologies such problems would hardly exist, and certainty not at current levels and magnitudes. To maintain 14th Century thinking in this wonderfully advanced age is unconscionable, and to continue to backslide into social degradation that is characteristic of bygone ages is not only reckless and incomprehensible. It is now apparent that moral and spiritual persuasiveness must take precedence in human affairs.
We focus first on the individual from within human diversity, particularly those that explicitly embrace learning, to assist them in systematic planning, and ways to design and establish viable development frameworks. Such effort must encompass administrative, cultural, indigenous, religious, ethnic, geographic and gender viewpoints, to the extent applicable, and will require the synthesis of a wide variety of views. It involves looking at life from the perspective of habitat dwellers, rather than placing reliance on programs prepared and delivered by external sources. People have a right to be involved in the planning process that will affect their future.
Moral High Ground
Achieving moral high ground must become paramount in strategic planning, policy debates, process and procedures for implementing development programs. It requires exhaustive executive, administrative and managerial expertise that is directed toward dedicated leadership. To fashion moral imperatives and adhere to spiritual values in order to achieve social responsibility across broad spectrums of society, irrespective of cross-border divides, is a challenge of extreme importance and leaves little doubt as to the magnitude of effort required for such an undertaking. We must turn our attention to the grassroots, the mass of humanity, this richly diversified and enabling resource to plan, build alliances, and establish partnerships to combat the enormity of global challenges affecting the generality of humankind.
