It is probable that the next Buddha will not take the form of an individual. The next Buddha may take the form of a community, a community practicing understanding and loving kindness, a community practicing mindful living. This may be the most important thing we can do for the survival of the earth.” —  Thich Nhat Hanh

In the face of escalating social and ecological breakdown, millions of people around the world are calling for a fundamental system change. But we can only change the world we live in by fundamentally changing the rules and becoming responsible and conscious Earth Citizens.

Those who love peace must learn to organize as effectively as those who love war.” — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Codes for a Healthy Earth

Organizing Ourselves as a Species to Replace the System

We can only change the world if we fundamentally change the rules that we live by and become fully responsible and conscious Earth Citizens.

Radical system change, rapid social and ecological regeneration requires fundamentally transforming of how we organize ourselves as a species.

It can only happen if we change all our outdated and dysfunctional social systems change simultaneously: governance, economics, law, media, education, agriculture, everything.

The escalating global crises will not be resolved from within the same system that created the crises. The whole system needs to be replaced by a completely new culture that embraces our true nature as humans – consequently, in one go, globally.

And the solutions already exist.

Let’s Co-create a Healthy New Reality – Rooted in the Ecosystem

Codes for a Healthy Earth offers a foundational whole-system framework to support individuals and groups in working together as ONE HUMANITY across national, cultural and ideological boundaries for radical system transformation.

The Codes are rooted in the ecosystem with the understanding that our personal, collective, and planetary health is interconnected and interdependent.
