Detailed Information:
Short History: In the early 1980s, because he was deeply concerned with the threat of nuclear war, Bill Pfeiffer began traveling to the Soviet Union to "meet the enemy." There he met many wonderful people working against tremendous odds on various environmental issues. At that time, he began to explore ways to effectively help his then soviet colleagues. In 1985 Pfeiffer founded The Sacred Earth Network (SEN). Fundraising through the Network, Mr. Pfeiffer began supplying activists with computers and modems. Since then, SEN has paid a major role in the creation of a computer network of environmentalists spanning over 100 cities in 14 of the 15 former Soviet republics. Today, we maintain offices in Petersham, Massachusetts and Moscow, Russia. Reason for the formation of SEN: SEN members believe that humanity must quickly restructure its relationship with the Earth.

We have recently published the third edition of our e-mail directory titled: "Eurasian Environmental Electronic Users: A Comprehensive Directory," available through our Petersham office;
