Our relationship with nature has become increasingly unsustainable. Recent events have demonstrated this, including the COVID pandemic, devastating fires in Australia, Siberia and Brazil, and floods in India and the UK. We need to reset our relationship with nature so we can build a world in which both people and nature can thrive. To do this we need to come together across the world, regardless of our backgrounds and circumstances, as fellow humans who share the same planet. We all need to raise our voices so that people in power hear us and change the policies. We need to take action as individuals and groups to change the way we live.
We built this platform so that people have a place to say how they feel, and what they will change in their lives. This will help individuals to register their commitment to change. If enough of us come together and raise our voices, we can all use this platform to show decision-makers that change must come. Together with other similar initiatives, we can build an unstoppable momentum towards creating a planet that works for both nature and people.
This website is the initiative of a group of people who work in environmental conservation. We did this in a personal capacity, and the costs are being met by us personally. No organisation is behind this initiative.
