One World Lights


  • Global citizens supporting a course change for humanity by supporting each other.

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.


We at One World Lights (OWL) are one of these communities
A community of global citizens — people who seek the well-being of all people and all life on our planet — committed to supporting a course change for humanity by supporting each other.

Our mission:
Wisdom circles around the world, both local and virtual,
 linked up over the Internet into communities of communities,
 where people come together to share
 wisdom, inspiration, support, resources — to contribute to global momentum for a positive, evolutionary human course change.


Our community:
A growing circle of global citizens and social activists, and their communities, all over the world.

Our vision:
An abundant, healthy, just, peaceful, sustainable world — one world for all of us.

Building Bridges Across the Hills

Paula Green, Ph.D. — psychologist, peace educator, facilitator, and mentor in the field of intergroup relations and conflict resolution — is co-creator, together with other residents of her hometown of Leverett MA, of Hands Across the Hills, a cultural exchange/dialogue between people in western Massachusetts and coal country in Kentucky.

After the 2016 presidential election, as the U.S. descended into a state of greater polaritzation, distrust, and animosity among Americans based on their political affiliation, Paula felt moved to increase her focus on restoring relations between Americans across the divides.

As they’ve discovered a sister community across the political divide, in another part of the U.S., where people are ready to join with them, Paula and her neighbors in Leverett are literally reaching out their Hands Across the Hills. Through this program, Paula now consults with and mentors other communities that hope to bridge divides in their own cities or elsewhere in the country.


Their partners in Letcher County, KY have come together under the auspices of the Letcher County Culture Hub, a network of community-led organizations that work together to build a culture and economy where people own what they make. Ben Fink, lead organizer for the group in Kentucky, also organizes projects for Appalshop, the Appalachian arts and culture institution that was recently featured on the PBS Hews Hour.



You can learn more about Paula, Ben, and their communities, at Hands Across the Hills.


Please join us for a conversation with Paula Green about Hands Across the Hills, the lessons for the U.S. and other countries and cultures that are experiencing conflict and divides — and how ordinary people everywhere can build bridges by reaching out to each other.

Sunday, April 29, 2018, 9:00 – 10:30 AM Pacific Time.
You can find your corresponding local time at Time and Date.
To join us for the videoconference, please RSVP now!
We’ll get back to you with the details.
