In 2020 Biodiversity for a Livable Climate will join the world in celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day. Yet here we are, still facing exponential decay of the life support systems necessary for continued human presence on this planet.
Our most powerful institutions – governments and corporations – are not facing this crisis squarely.
On the other hand, thousands of independent organizations and millions of individuals worldwide are restoring living processes in their local areas while connecting with each other to create global change. This is the spontaneous, non-governmental movement that environmentalist and author Paul Hawken has called “blessed unrest”.
We will present a conference named after a 2007 book by Hawken: Blessed Unrest: How the Largest Social Movement in History Is Restoring Grace, Justice, and Beauty to the World. He describes how this movement “came into being and why nobody saw it coming.”
