Planetary Emergency

        Agenda 2022

How we can save the Planet and Live in Peace & Harmony

The benefits of development are not shared equitably and the gap between rich and poor is widening.
Injustice, poverty, ignorance, and violent conflict are widespread and the cause of great suffering.
The dominant patterns of production and consumption are causing environmental devastation, the depletion of resources, and a massive extinction of species.
We must realize that when basic needs have been met, human development is primarily about being more, not having more.
We must join together to bring forth a sustainable global society founded on respect for nature, universal human rights, economic justice, and a culture of peace.
Everyone shares responsibility for the present and future well-being of the human family and the larger living world.
  1. Respect Earth and life in all its diversity
  2. Care for the community of life with understanding, compassion, and love.
  3.  Build democratic societies that are just, participatory, sustainable, and peaceful.
  4.  Ensure that communities at all levels guarantee human rights and fundamental freedoms
  5. Promote social and economic justice, enabling all to achieve a secure and meaningful livelihood that is ecologically responsible.
  6. Protect and restore the integrity of Earth's ecological systems, with special concern for biological diversity and the natural processes that sustain life.
  7. Adopt patterns of production, consumption, and reproduction that safeguard Earth's regenerative capacities, human rights, and community well-being.
  8. Reduce, reuse, and recycle the materials used in production and consumption systems, and ensure that residual waste can be assimilated by ecological systems.
  9. Use renewable energy sources
  10. Try to build a brighter future, think about FUTURE GENERATIONS
  11. Ensure universal access to health care
  12. Support international scientific and technical cooperation on sustainability, with special attention to the needs of developing nations.
  13. Recognize and preserve the traditional knowledge and spiritual wisdom in all cultures that contribute to environmental protection and human well-being.
  14. Ensure that information of vital importance to human health and environmental protection, including genetic information, remains available in the public domain.
  15. Eradicate poverty as an ethical, social, and environmental imperative.
  16. Promote a culture of tolerance, nonviolence, and peace. Encourage and support mutual understanding, solidarity, and cooperation among all peoples and within and among nations.
  17. We must build a sustainable global community  we must Connect all the caring people
  18. Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.  Albert Einstein
  19. Let ours be a time remembered for the awakening of a new reverence for life, the firm resolve to achieve sustainability, the quickening of the struggle for justice and peace, and the joyful celebration of life. 

We must BE the CHANGE we want to see in the World!

Together We Build A Brighter Future

    It's all up to us. Our choice. This is a good list. I hope each person can choose at least one item as their own goal for a month, then choose another for the next month....
