The Environment and Individual Responsibility

I was watching Incredible Journeys with Simon Reeve on the BBC recently and saw yet another indicator of the desperate state of our climate, as Simon told of the spontaneous outpouring of concern by indigenous peoples at how their environment t was changing for the worse and becoming more unpredictable.

Many of us have come to realise that if government the world over aren’t moving quickly enough to address the very real issues our natural world is facing, then it’s down to the people to act.

Bioneers—Revolution from the Heart of Nature (https://bioneers.org), is an innovative nonprofit organisation that highlights breakthrough solutions for restoring people and planet.

In an article on the website, entitled New Pathways for Old Wisdom: Mari Margil on the Rights of Nature, we are reminded of the following:

Everybody starts in that same place of the fundamental sense that something is wrong and something needs to shift. I take great hope and inspiration from that because people are doing something that’s really difficult. People are willing to step outside their comfort zone because they know something terrible is happening to the planet, and we need to do something really dramatic to make change.

I think people should take hope knowing that other regular Joes just like them are doing something, that they can do it too, and that they don’t need to be any kind of professor, expert, or lawyer. Anybody can do this.

I’d encourage you to explore the website, and share whatever knowledge you can with those you are connected with.
