electronic media linked communication network of participating experts,
members, students, contributors, & Other involved parties.
It will therefore

increasing population and the accelerating drain on natural resources
that is reaching crisis proportions.

Exchange holds that this noble philosophy applies not only to wealthy
persons but to all people. Our existence on this planet can be given
purpose through our efforts to make it a better place. It is, in
fact, our universal obligation to contribute or give something back
to our world. Whether it is in the form of labor, ingenuity, financial
contribution, guidance, leadership or influence, sharing for the
benefit of the planet is an ideal not just to praise silently, but
to achieve, with long lasting benefits for our future generations
This has led
to establishing The University Exchange (UE) to play a role in assuring
significant technological breakthroughs will be developed and utilized
for the common good. A loosely associated group comprised of dedicated
individuals of various nationalities & technical backgrounds has
evolved over the last 20 years to address & focus on these issues.

natural resources, and complex biological balance. Ideals supported
by The Exchange are held by millions of people, who as individuals,
may not be in positions to apply sufficient pressure to produce
change. The ideal of The Exchange is to bring about change by coordinated
effort and force on a grand scale.
