Imagine that the future of the planet depended on you alone and there were 7.6 billion others who lived just like you. You have in your hand 10 seeds that you can plant to help cultivate the caring Commons. What 10 simple actions would you choose to take to invest your energy in building a culture of stewardship?
The goal: to generate momentum towards shaping a new collective story where caring for people and the planet is the main story we choose to tell. Let's find out what can happen when we tap into one of the most unexplored renewable sources of energy on the planet: Purposeful human energy seeking to realize its potential.
We all know there’s a lot to be done! It can feel absolutely overwhelming at times. That’s why we need to pull together on this. Instead of feeling powerless, we can plant seeds to tell a story of stewardship, of love and caring.
Share the project with your people, because working together, the results can be exponential.
Be intentional. Do it for 10 days because we need a sense of urgency and a lot can be done in 10 days! And then keep planting more seeds. Invest more and more energy in building the Caring Commons. Generate fresh energy in your own life by taking back your power and investing it in a higher value system that can hold us all, where you will help spread things of intangible value like joy, love and cooperation.
Why: Because everything is at stake. And everybody wins.
Who: Everyone who embraces the challenge.
Where: Wouldn't it be great if this spread all around the world? The United States consumes the most, wastes the most and pollutes the most; it seems like a good place to start.
1. Take the Opportunities for Impact Assessment. It walks you through all the things you might do on a typical day, so you can see all the opportunities you have to make a difference.
2. Read the list of Opportunities for Impact and choose the things that will generate the most energy in your life.
3. We are mapping this project to see where it spreads. Send us your name and zip code and we'll get you on the map.
4. Share your story click here! Inspire others with your insights and actions.
Example: if it is the way you consume: Only buy what you love. Pay attention to the supply chain you are supporting with every purchase. Be conscious of where your energy is going, what you are supporting. Are you supporting local small businesses who are helping to improve your community?
We don't need all of us, we need enough of us to get the momentum going.
Before you start, take it seriously. Allow yourself to have the full experience. Invest your best energy and have fun!
