One planet, 7 billion people: are we at an inflection point?
At a time of growing instability and uncertainty, with crisis flash-points increasing around the world, it is clearer that than ever that our current trajectory — the way that seven billion of us are relating to each other and to our planet — is not sustainable. The major institutions of our current world order — governments, UN, corporations, global alliances, etc. — have so far been unable to change that trajectory.
What comes next? Is human civilization at an evolutionary inflection point? What can we do to make a difference?
The good news: we are hard-wired for love, kindness, compassion, and generosity
Modern neuroscience is confirming what the world’s religious and spiritual traditions have known for centuries: that these emotions are among our most powerful motivators and key to our survival as a species — past and future. Empowered by these motivations as well as the newest Internet technologies, ordinary people everywhere are waking up to a calling to compassionate service, forming communities, linking up around the world, and taking action to support positive change by serving others. And although the individual actions may be humble, the cumulative effect is big, growing and unstoppable.
