Non-Profit Charitable Organization founded in 1994
Promoting Sustainable Ideals
The Ecology Crossroads Cooperative Foundation is a non-profit charitable organization founded and established in the United States in 1994 by David J. Wright of Kentucky to foster the ideals of protecting the environment under the United Nations Sustainable Development Agenda of 1992, called Declaration of Rio (also known as Earth Summit or Agenda 21).
Between the years 1994 and 2000 the organization distributed 10 million trees in the United States free of charge to people to promote urban forestry and to reduce global warming in a number of programs oriented towards the environment and urban reforestation.
In 2001 Ecology Crossroads was closed after ceasing business with the distribution of free trees in a legal settlement with the National Arbor Day Foundation; then in 2014 the organization was reinstated by the founder's son, Nicholas Wright, along with other members for the 20th Anniversary of the founding of the organization.
During its 25th anniversary in 2019, Ecology Crossroads began restating its Articles of Organization under a reformation process and named new officers and appointed new Board of Trustees for 2020-2024 through an affiliate organization, Globcal International, which was created in 2009 to operate in the international theater as an unincorporated non-state decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) and a cooperative international non-governmental organization (CiNGO). Globcal International based online (web based) in the social media was formed under the ideals and authority of Ecology Crossroads despite being defunct in Kentucky at the time.
On January 21st, 2020. the Ecology Crossroads Cooperative Foundation, Inc. was officially reinstated with the Secretary of State Michael G. Adams at the State Capitol. Subsequently on January 30th, the organization adopted the two Assumed Name Corporations 'Globcal International' and 'Kentucky Colonels International' to treat them as independent, but affiliated, sub-organizations and commissions of Ecology Crossroads.
Our affiliate Globcal International began in 2009 and in 2013 was reformed as a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO), a cooperative international non-governmental organization (CiNGO), and international civil society organization (iCSO) registered with the United Nations made-up of individuals practicing as professional goodwill ambassadors and civil rights advocates who together formed a non-state, international foundation pending official recognition in the offshore jurisdiction of Belize where the organization is establishing an embassy. The organization through its individual ambassadors has developed interesting diplomatic relationships around the world based on global citizenship and international cooperation efforts.
Globcal International is now properly domiciled in the United States as an Assumed Name Corporation in Kentucky and is chartered as a commission of Ecology Crossroads as of January 30, 2020. The organization operates a number of foundations offshore and internationally including the Global Citizenship Register in Sweden, the Goodwill Ambassador Foundation in Belize, the Belize International Foundation, the Ekobius International Foundation in Venezuela, the Piaroa International Foundation and Dearuhua Cacao. The foundations are operated by the organization's goodwill ambassadors, nonstate advocates and volunteers. Several of these foundation initiatives are registered with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals Agenda.
Kentucky Colonels International
Kentucky Colonels International is a program originally established by Col. David Wright in 1998 to provide a membership development for Kentucky Colonels that want to be better recognized as Kentucky's Goodwill Ambassadors. The unincorporated association was idle from 2002-2005, then reformed online in the social media between 2006-2019 under the guidance of Col. Wright and Globcal International. It was finally set forth as an independent commission of this organization on January 30, 2020, registered in the Commonwealth of Kentucky a an Assumed Name Corporation.
As an independent part of Ecology Crossroads several of our board members have been assigned as commissioners of the organization in formation who are also Kentucky colonels. For more information please see their website and blog or visit their Facebook page.
25th Anniversary (2019)
In 2019 the organization was redefined a new mission and charting a new course with Col. David Wright returning to the helm to continue defending the rights of mother earth and the people that depend on living in a sustainable world.
Col. Wright invited some of the original protagonists, employees and officers involved from 1994-2001 to be included in the reformation of the organization as its new incorporating officers for the Restated and Amended Articles of Incorporation being filed in 2020.
