This Dot Earth article caught my eye. I love the ambition of having us humans think of ourselves as interdependent on all life on Earth – and that the now living have a responsibility towards future generations. This sounds fairly obvious, but one could say we have long way to go…
So, when I in the same article found out about The World Future Council I checked their web site and discovered:
A. I've successfully avoided hearing about this organization for 5 years
B. This is a massively and ambitious and important and totally awesome initiative
C. It was founded by activist Swede Jakob von Uexküll, a man I admire very much
I'll definitely be following the work of WFC and hope they are very very successful. They have already inspired me to more strongly do what I can to move things in the directions they are advocating.
