The Great Transition

The ecosystem and civilization are unraveling in this decade. As the power of Nature becomes more evident, so does the call for the citizens of wealthy nations to make profound lifestyle changes.
Our adolescence is over. Maturity must come, either by choice, or through sorrow and grief as societies and living systems collapse in the decade ahead. #ClimateChange is upon us.

The future holds great challenges, pushing us to recognize the value of community, and a new paradigm in which consuming is no longer the basis of society. Instead, as citizens of a resilient, living universe, on a planet with limited resources, we must choose to respect and care for the Earth, our only home. #VoluntarySimplicity, as proposed decades ago by #DuaneElgin, is now essential for survival.
