Reaching critical mass

Posted February 20th, 2014 in Blog, Featured Comments Off on Reaching critical mass

We are reaching a point of critical tension where something has to give. The world is facing challenges as vast as any faced before in our history. The reality of change and the resistance to change is now fraught with tension and threat. The burgeoning grassroots movements rising up in defense of “place,” of home, of eco-communities, of the Earth, is the human’s ecological response to crisis. It is also the place where hope is burgeoning, creating along the way the kind of work that can remake the world.

A true ecological movement must reflect the way nature works – decentralized, non-hierarchical, nurtured and fed from the roots, biologically and culturally diverse

I want to talk about the work in which we are engaged. I want to talk about what an ecological movement is and must be. I want to raise some issues for our reflection…While a lot of attention goes to the national campaigns with lots of media attention, a lot of the real organizing and basis for changing this culture is happening at these local levels. We need to do more to empower these efforts, make them visible, offer solidarity, enter into conversation (humbly, not as outside experts or leaders), help develop the interconnections that build a real movement, and allow space for these expressions to, well, be expressed! The real leaders are there at the grassroots where they go door to door, neighbor to neighbor, to their church communities and town halls, and get upset and inspired to defend life in the places where they live.
