With an unprecedented crisis comes great responsibility and opportunity.
The planet and humanity are facing climate breakdown, ecosystem and biodiversity loss, and other earth system stresses coupled with social and economic inequity and inequality. Underpinning these compounding crises is a dominant worldview of our separation from nature and each other, which has enabled oppressive ideologies and political systems and destructive perpetual growth economics within a finite biosphere. We recognize that we operate within this context, at times benefiting from it, while also experiencing collective loss.
There is an opportunity for the human community to come together, recognize our shared responsibility and interdependence, and imagine and co-create a just transition to a better future. One that is ecologically regenerative, honours and promotes biological, human, and cultural diversity and thriving, upholds equity, justice, and peace, and reintegrates all of humanity into a symbiotic community with nature.
