Global Citizenship and You: Embracing Earth’s Challenge

How do we collectively transform ourselves, our communities, and our civilization to move toward a future of our highest collective possibilities?
Hence, the great work of our time is to carry out the transition from the current period where humans are a destructive presence on the Earth to one where the human presence is mutually beneficial to the planet and the entire community of life – a mutually enhancing human/earth relationship. To do this we need to undergo, at both an individual and collective level, a fundamental transformation – a virtual reinvention of what we consider the role of human beings to be.
