Hey.. Lets Build an

Do we have the collective will to put healing the ozone layer at the forefront, to educate ourselves, educate others, to check products on sale locally, to question local business and industries as to their use of these chemicals, to enact local restrictive legislation as needed, to demand national restrictive legislation and compliance from industry and the military; to demand the necessary aid for Third World countries to get their CFCs, HCFCs and halon under control?

What is Global Governance?

Organizations and information focused on the creation of worldwide methods and structures of governance and problem normalization and harmonization (not necessarily government) to tackle the urgent problems facing the globe, be they poverty, environmental degradation, economic policy, food, human rights violations and so on. Topics include United Nations, Globalization issues and Human Rights. Global Governance includes NGO's Non Governmental Organizations, Civil Society, and Third World countries. Other areas include globalization and its effects, positive and negative, social justice and multinational corporations, as well as anti globalization and non-governmental organizations. Plus the effects of globalization, economic globalization and global issues. Topics may include arms race, militarism, civil society, policy harmonization, third world debt and more.

We desperately need to recognize that we are the guests not the masters of nature and adopt a new paradigm for development, based on the costs and benefits to all people, and bound by the limits of nature herself rather than the limits of technology and consumerism."

"Mikhail Gorbachev
Chairman of the Board,
Green Cross International"

The Future of our Home Planet is in Our Hands Right Now. We are in the Time of the Deciding Moment. With a New Cooperative Effort the Brilliant Global Society Lies...Just Ahead !

The Future has Never Existed but is all we have left... Realizing a better world--a new higher reality--involves understanding
and actualizing concepts and practices which reflect the timeless perennial wisdoms. That which is lasting, wisdom, beauty and the universal truths of natural science and higher philosophy.
These perennial truths and practices define our higher human nature, right human relations and right relations between human beings and the natural world.

The Great Work We are about the Great Work. We all have our particular work--some of us are teachers, some of us are healers, some of us in various professions, some of us are farming. We have a variety of occupations. But beside the particular work we do and the particular lives we lead, we have a Great Work that everyone is involved in and no one is exempt from. That is the work of moving on from a terminal Cenozoic to an emerging Ecozoic Era in the story of the
planet Earth...; which is the Great Work. - Thomas Berry

Center for the Story of the Universe

As opposed to just forging ahead in ideologies that do not serve the whole of life and humanity on this small fragile delicate planet we are all totally dependent on for our support. It appears that global society is beginning to seriously consider the structural changes in our civilization that are being recommended by environmental, social, economic, political and spiritual experts that is based on life long assessment and observations. -State of Our Planet -

An ethical approach to globalization can mean nothing less than a rights-based approach to development.

Now.. Does Anyone Really Know What Time it is..the end of the old world or the beginning of a new world..

The World is at the Crossroads We are at a critical juncture in history, a "decision-window" where we face both the danger of global collapse and the opportunity of worldwide renewal. We have, at most, 7 years to head off unsustainable trends that would lead to a "tipping point" beyond which there is no turning back. By 2012 we either evolve to a safer, more sustainable world, or the social, economic, and ecological systems that frame our life will break down.

We are in the Time of the Deciding Moment
Civilization has made a lot of progress in the last 100 years.
We are just now beginning to see that our institutional, economic, energy, environmental and social support systems are not in the best shape to handle the pressures that unregulated and uncharted development has on the systems we all count on every day. The current structures of global and regional civilization currently do not have the experience, mechanisms and structures in place to efficiently handle, prepare and confront the increasingly complex ecological, political, social, cultural and economic problems of current and future global challenges and scenarios. Reality is now hitting the planet and human civilization very hard. The misconceptions of our institutional, economic, environmental and social policy processes are becoming increasingly very clear to everyone. The good news is that millions of people, institutions, celebrities, societies and many leaders are beginning to engage a new world cooperative view. This is based on the communities of life and humanity, a commitment to the collective development of reason and civilization and an open process of communication and dialog. A world view that the web of life and the environmental ecosystems must be protected under global governance as the foundation of global development is emerging. We have spent the last 100 years building global hierarchies for a handful of institutions and people. Through this process we have reached the current point of global civilization very quickly. We now must spend the next 20 years organizing network communities of civilization, reason, ingenuity and sharing to create a sustainable future for all of humanity and restore the ecological web of life. This web site is about bringing to you the visionary leaders and groups who have the models and the answers to bring forth solutions to the next stage of a more functional cooperative sustainable civilization. Welcome

"The whole of my life has been about getting further and further upstream, so that I'm ahead of the power curve, as it were. And the highest upstream that I can figure out how to get is in designing new cultural DNA and splicing it into cultural codes, as well as identifying malfunctioning "DNA strands," such as GNP, which generate pathological patterns in the body politic. This activity has the biggest multiplier in terms of shifting the system towards sustainability." ...Hazel Henderson

“In order to change something, don’t struggle to change the existing model. Create a new and better model, and make the old one obsolete.” ...Buckminster Fuller.

Our comments on Times Poll Is the environment doomed.
Based on the results of this poll most people feel the environment is doomed. This is why it is so vital and important you connect to the right information like Time's Report and from the experts like Lester Brown and his book Eco-Economy and Elisabet Sahtouris, Living Systems work on how DNA can reorganize very quickly given the support systems to do so. This not only includes the living systems DNA but the DNA of society or the reasoning and processing systems of society. The solutions are possible and emerging and can emerge very quickly as all of humanity begins to come together.

"Some day, after we have mastered the winds, the waves, the tides, and gravity, . . . we shall harness . . . the energies of Love. Then, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered... Fire."
~Pierre Teilhard de Chardin ~

The Geopolitics of post 1945 continue to dominate the governance structures of key institutions, even at this point well into the post-colonial era. We need to concede that many of these public institutions appear to be operating under rules and logic models that are not in keeping with the realities that citizens confront around the world today.

"An economic system cannot exist without an ecological system: the ecological system being the principal system, from which the economic system is derived."
From the Book:

An interesting question to ask!

What is the First Economy
of Our Wonderful Planet Earth?

"A human being is part of the whole called by us the Universe. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest --a kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures, and the whole of nature in its beauty."
-- Albert Einstein

"If we want to solve a problem that we have never solved before, we must leave the door to the unknown ajar. We are at the very beginning of time for the human race."
Richard Feynman - American theoretical physicist
