“In the final analysis, our most common link is that we all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children’s future. And we are all mortal.” John F. Kennedy
Our world is incredibly complex, dominated by fear and increasingly polarized.
What if it were dominated by inquiry, compassion and understanding instead?
What if we committed to working together and helping each other to embrace that complexity? We could break down the barriers and build bridges of hope for a New Tomorrow.
By signing the pledge you add your voice to a culture shift that will gain momentum as more people commit to striving for these values: Honesty, Transparency, Integrity, Humility, Inquiry.
Your commitment will testify that you are part of a global community that strives to foster compassion through a deeper understanding of each other and the world around us.
Do you yearn for a new tomorrow?
If your future is threatened by War, A Pandemic, The Climate Crisis, Automation, Political Polarization, Eroding Civil Liberties, Income Disparity, Misinformation, or Economic Collapse, you are not helpless.
Together we can shape that world…
…because what happens tomorrow is determined by the choices we make today. Together we can co-create a new culture of engagement. And it all starts with a pledge to help create safe spaces for that engagement in your everyday world.
Ready or not, the future is coming at an ever accelerating pace. For better or worse the multiple challenges of our time will shape the world we hand off to our children.
* We know that you are already doing a lot to help your community, supporting an important cause, or championing engagement on vital issues. That’s fantastic!
This pledge is not meant to compete with or replace any of that. Instead it is meant to create a common framework or world view that supports all these activities. If we dedicate ourselves to working together and creating safe spaces where we can explore the complexity of the challenges we face, we may just be able to overcome them.
By signing the pledge you are an inspiration to others. You help build the momentum for a public shift in how we individually and collectively view and interact with the world around us. A public pledge demonstrates your commitment to this shift. You are leading by example. We are all leaders and we are all followers.
All you need to do is sign it, and then strive to live by it.
