Girlpeace is the first micronational environmental organisation which is more than a mere fund-raising vehicle for another Official World organisation (i.e. an organisation which operates within, and with the approval of, governments which are members of the United Nations). Girlpeace is also the first micronational environmental organisation with an original mission statement of its own.
Research in the past had already shown that the Fourth World agricultural model which is very popular today, i.e. based on heavily-regulated certified organic farming, is unsustainable. The only real solution to the problem of industrial agriculture is that a lot more people have to grow food, both for sale and at home. There simply aren't enough farmers to have a small, local, organic farm everywhere. The solution to the problem of industrial agriculture is thus Fifth World agriculture, which is do-it-yourself (DIY) agriculture where the producer(s) and the consumer(s) are the same person(s).
News of the UK government's proposal to turn the Chagos Archipelago into a protected area, however, and the backing of the decision by several environmental and science bodies, showed that not only Fourth World agriculture is unsustainable, but also Fourth World environmentalism. Fourth World environmentalism is the kind that piggybacks on governments and intergovernmental organisations just like the most despicable bank, corporation, or protected interest group; the kind that turns weekend fishermen into people who now ridiculously need a licence for a hobby, a licence which is also a tax in disguise which supports criminal organisations such as the United Nations; the kind which place the rights of professional environmentalists ahead of the human rights of indigenous peoples like Chagossians, who will now be required a permit for subsistence fishing, all while destructive commercial fishing goes on in places like the Galápagos Islands, and right inside the so-called "nature reserves".
The idea that Fourth World environmentalism also needs to be replaced by Fifth World, or DIY environmentalism, which is decent, apolitical, sensitive to the natural environment, and also sensitive to the needs of people who already live in harmony with the natural environment, signaled the birth of micronational environmentalism at least as a realistic and unique concept. This, in turn, lead to the birth of the Girlpeace organisation on 4 April 2010.
Girlpeace is a non-profit organisation registered with the Micronational Professional Registry (MPR), and incorporated in the United Micronations Multi-Oceanic Archipelago (UMMOA).
