The environment, after all, is where we all meet, where we all have a mutual interest. It is one thing that all of us share. It is not only a mirror of ourselves, but a focusing lens on what we can become” — Lady Bird Johnson, First Lady of the United States (1963–69)

Brighten our futures through our cultural forces, joyful communities & singular resolve

Our future depends on being able to cooperate and collaborate. Understanding and empowering culture, nature and our shared humanity will enable people to repair our home through action. We have an unprecedented opportunity now to end our culture wars, neglect and complacency and join together to help save the planet. We all need to realize that climate change, nature and inequality are borderless. We can take this opportunity to recognize that we need to restore and protect our shared ground, home and provide security for all living things. Taking action on climate change will provide a shared purpose and help us come together to repair our home. Leaving division helps reach peaceful agreements. We can become a better world by virally cultivating compassion and empathy in our culture. Step up and act by becoming part of courageous teams that establish our teamwork and solidarity.

Communities and their nature, cultures and shared senses of purpose unite us. With committed unity and singular resolve, we can scale up planet repair in an engaging, entertaining and experiential way. Joy, appreciation and love can be created through culture, art, communities and changing our behavior to untrash our planet. How we divert our attention, energy and actions can either help us or harm us on our mission for planet repair. This mission, through each one of our journeys, will enable us to learn how to love and respect our relationship with earth and Mother Nature. By taking action and helping to repair the planet, we can see the results of the mosaic full of positive contributions toward healing our world. By bringing us together with commonalities and a shared sense of purpose, we can joyfully achieve our collective mission for a healthy planet and people.

Natural forces within us are the true healers of disease” — Hippocrates (460–370 BC)
