Fostering a viable and hopeful future for our planet

Wellbeing of the Earth

For us to flourish, the earth must also flourish. We cannot flourish as healthy humans on a toxic planet. 

We are deeply interconnected with the Earth and the web of life. The Earth is the primary and humans are derivative. There is no such thing as a human community without an earth community. 

A hopeful future depends on our developing a mutually beneficial relationship and rapport with the natural world.
