Creating the future we need will present many challenges and opportunities. But success will depend on grounding our actions in the shifts necessary to promote and achieve change that is life affirming and that does so in ways that foster shared prosperity for all, and leads to sustainable practices that maintain and protect the biosphere.
This section seeks to illuminate the values, practices, policies and institutional responses that move us toward creating the world we share together. It seeks to build a sense of momentum about the possibilities for change and to instill hope and confidence that the capacity exists within us to fundamentally alter our current path.
More precisely, that our current world can and must make the choices necessary to ensure that everyone can thrive, and to do so in ways that are aligned with both the basic needs and human dreams that inspire and motivate us to act in community and in ways that promote the common good and shared prosperity. Further that the necessary actions and commitments must occur at all levels of organization – household, community, region, and the planet.
