Theme and Description: This globe shows the earth as a representation of the brain. The land areas are covered with concepts, ideas, and programs deemed as solutions to the environmental problems of our earth.

We must cherish and respect our planet by inhabiting it intelligently. Human intelligence is the most powerful tool we have to create a world we can all live in. We must use our brain, our intelligence, as a worldwide problem-solving force without self-interest, ego, political, ethnic, class, or economic issues.
