Human growth has strained the Earth’s resources, but as Johan Rockstrom reminds us, our advances also give us the science to recognize this and change behavior. His research has found nine “planetary boundaries” that can guide us in protecting our planet’s many overlapping ecosystems.
As you watch this TEDtalk, be mindful of:
- the need to wake up and stay awake
- the need to think for myself AND engage with others who are doing the same, within the larger context of a Living Planet
- the need to become The One… to act rather than philosophize; rather than wait for action to be taken elsewhere. To stop.. and notice what touches my life… and what mindful choices am I making about what touches my life.
It is happening, now. It is moving at a pace that we can no longer help but notice. The greatest extension of decentralization is to return to Self and from there, create a new reality.
