We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

Bring your friends to make history

Click here to access article by Eduardo from People's Climate.
So exciting — thousands are joining events around the globe to make the People’s Climate Mobilisation a historic climate moment!

Just so you know: right now there are events registered in more than 130 countries which will be joined by many others like you — people from all backgrounds and cultures, holding a common ask for world leaders gathering in New York for the United Nations Climate Summit: it’s time for Actions, Not Words.

Climate change is affecting all of us in many disastrous ways, no matter who or where we are. And pushing heads of state to be serious on climate is not something that just some of us must do — to make our voices really really loud on September 21, we’ll need everyone, everywhere to take action.
See a trailer of a major film regarding climate destabilization just released online a few days ago that is related to this major global event. Then view the whole 52:26m film online here.
