"Promotion of sustainable development, protection of diverse cultures, promotion of healthy lifestyle for every social class in order to create a liveable and more unified world." (extract from the articles of incorporation)
We aim to promote the conservation of values, of our natural and built environment and to form our society in a sustainable way via our concrete projects, programs, awareness raising and education. To achieve our goals we work together with national and international local governments, civil organizations, educational, health and social institutions, national parks, authorities for the protection of the natural and built environment, business companies, churches and the media.

Until the 19th century we did not have our own national anthem. Catholics and the Reformed Church had their own national anthem.
