Mark Moore, Earthville’s Founder

Mark MooreMark Moore, the Executive Director of the Earthville Network, is an eco-social entrepreneur, experiential educator, consultant, writer-editor, composer-producer, designer, natural builder, and meditation retreat facilitator. He is editor and coauthor of To Create the World That Ought to Be: Memoirs of a Radical Educator, published in 2023.

Founder of the Earthville Network in the USA and cofounder of the Dharmalaya Institute for Compassionate Living in India, he has been launching and nurturing altruistic and creative projects around the world since 1997.

A common thread uniting his diverse activities is putting compassion into action through joyful service.

Mark’s main focus since 2010 has been developing immersive, contemplative service-learning programs integrating sustainability with inner development, catalyzing the empowerment of warm-hearted changemakers.

One of Mark’s greatest passions — both in his own projects and as a consultant — is the art and craft of compassionate cultural container-building. That is, the design, establishment and refinement of purpose-driven communities, organizations, and environments that embody the values and qualities they seek to promote. He draws on both traditional wisdom and fresh creativity to leverage the power of insightfully sculpted organizational cultures to bring out the best in the humans that comprise them and manifest more impactful and harmonious results.

Mark is a trustee of the Ronald E. Moore Foundation and serves on several other boards and advisory groups. He also serves as a meditation retreat facilitator and mentor for Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche’s Tergar Learning Community, and has volunteered for myriad educational and charitable projects worldwide since 1987.

He loves nature, travel, music, and fair-trade vegan chocolate.
