|CWR Presents: : Hope for Humanity: Seeds of planetary transformation
Itís hard to maintain hope for the future of our civilization in the face of the flood of bad news in the media. But without hope, there is no hope.
It has been estimated that over a million organizations worldwide are working to change hearts and minds, create global networks of connection, develop and model alternatives, and take political action. In this seminar, I will give a brief overview of this global groundswell of action that promises to reach a tipping point of planetary transformation within the foreseeable future.
Hearts and minds are being changed by new media, social networking, education and personal transformation. Alternatives are being developed by building community locally and globally, creating alternative forms of settlement, adapting existing towns to climate change and post-peak oil, creating new economic and financial systems, increasing local food production and distribution, promoting new lifestyles, and developing green technologies. Meanwhile, grassroots political action is gaining traction through new approaches to campaigning powered by the web.
Malcolm is Author of "The Science of Oneness" A worldview for the twenty-first century, and co-author with Christine Connelly of Hope for Humanity: How understanding and healing trauma could solve the planetary crisis.
