It’s been quite a year.
We saw an awful lot of great things happen; and some things we’d rather not dwell on.
But we can have faith.
There are millions of tireless, selfless folks the world round aspiring to bring more sustainability into their lives and into the world.
Be it the ClimateKids, the amazing people at NGOs like the World Wildlife Fund or Greenpeace, families that faithfully practice the three Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle), Green Party members and their political allies in and out of government, agro-ecological farmers, Extinction Rebels (go XR), folks at the United Nations, and millions more, each making a difference in their own ways, both large and small.
In them and with them, we can see light, we can see hope, we can see love.
And where we can see this, where we see love, we can imagine and make a brighter future.
With these thoughts in mind, we invited a few friends of The Sustainable Century to record their thoughts and ideas on ways to celebrate a more and sustainable festive season.
I hope you enjoy the podcast, and that no matter who you are, where you live, you can spread the word of love and peace all around. Its as Alice Korngold says in the podcast: we are all sustainability leaders; we only need choose to be one and it will be so!
May the coming years be our best years ever.
May the gods great and small bless us all.
