ICGC’s mission, according to their website, is to “visually represent how, with equal rights and opportunities for everyone, we can create a transformed world.” The organization was founded in 2007 by Etta Jackson.

The 501(c)(3) non-profit is using a geographic information system (GIS) to create a “Millennium Earth”—a visual representation of the world that displays each country’s agricultural, economic, educational, infrastructure, medical, and other imperative needs.

From there, ICGC “will coordinate with country representatives within the United Nations, International Organizations, Senior Members, and citizens of, first, the Least Developed Countries, and then Developing Countries in consultation to engage in realistic, accurate and tangible solutions to the countries’ needs.”

ICGC’s Millennium Earth Project seeks to address the United Nations’ Millennium Development and Sustainable Development Goals, and the GIS application is currently being developed by a team of volunteers and interns. The non-profit is in Special Consultative Status with the United Nations’ Economic and Social Council.

At the Spring Cocktail Soirée, ICGC board members, staff, and youth department members educated guests on the organization’s work, the overwhelming need for such an innovative program, and the Millennium Earth Project’s methodology.
