wheel of interconnected circles
An initiative of Stanford University,
bringing the best science to civil society.

The Millennium Alliance for Humanity and the Biosphere (MAHB, pronounced “mob”) is a meeting place for global civil society — citizens concerned with the interconnections among the greatest threats to human well-being: this is the human predicament.

The MAHB provides information about this global challenge, solicits new voices, offers opportunities for members to form working groups and discussion fora, and interact with a diverse community committed to ameliorating the threats to humanity.

The MAHB mission is twofold:

  • Foster, fuel and inspire a global dialogue on the threat of collapse and how interconnected biogeophysical and socio-economic systems contribute to, and are affected by, the existential threats facing humanity
  • Develop and implement strategies for shifting human cultures and institutions towards practices that promote a future in which people can live peaceful and productive lives.
