What is an NGO? NGOs are non-profit organizations which originated from the United Nations (UN), many of which work with the UN in a consultative status and are listed on their UN website. NGOs range from private foundations, professional organizations, non-profits groups such as environmental groups, and even businesses that have created foundations. These NGOs actively influence laws, regulations, and policies to promote Agenda 21 goals. Agenda 21 uses environmentalism as the tool, or reason, to justify everything they are implementing under the guise of sustainable development (SD). Other non-profits not recognized by the UN usually have the same goals but NGOs are recognized throughout Agenda 21 as the key to implementing Agenda 21 goals.
The UN also uses professional organizations to indoctrinate Americans to promote Agenda 21 goals. The American Planning Association (APA) is one example. Members of this organization are city planners, Americans who are part of city and county governments. Their job is to help cities with planning for growth, transportation, housing, land use, and basically design cities. Through this professional organization American planners are unknowingly indoctrinated into designing UN human settlements which force high density and "equal" housing, ban cars to force the use of mass transportation, biking, and walking, creating open space around cities that prohibit growth, all for the goal of resource control.
One non-profit promoting Agenda 21 goals to create human settlements is the Urban Land Institute (ULI). APA and ULI promote multi-family housing (just another name for small apartments or duplexes), mixed-use which means all services, employment, schools, and living space are within walking or biking distance, placement of urban sprawl boundaries to prevent further growth outside of current city boundaries, and mass transportation which will eliminate all need for private vehicles. The ULI meets with local officials to indoctrinate them on the look of future cities. Unfortunately, these officials don't always understand the hidden agenda by the UN or the connection.
To help understand how embedded NGOs are locally here is one example. For those of you who use United Water you might be surprised to learn it is closely works with recognized UN NGOs. United Water "partners" with UN NGO American Water Works Association (AWWA) and UN NGO Water Environment Federation (WEF). Here is the United Water site listing these NGOs.
Here is the United Water CEO letter of support for UN goals.
Link to look at these NGOs on the UN website. Type American Water Works Association and then Water Environment Federation in the search box.
If you look over the United Water website it lists "sustainable development" under environment. This is synonymous with Agenda 21. All of their programs are part of Agenda 21 including indoctrinating you to conserve water, reduce waste, and recycle among other things.
What is wrong with sustainable development, isn't it a good thing? Yes, caring for our world is important but the hidden agenda is the real danger.
