Why Listen to the Earth?

This movement, hosted by the NGO Listening Inspires, is inspired by the realisation that to restore the health of our planet, we need to be guided not only by our heads and scientific knowledge, but also by our hearts and the greater consciousness that animates all life. We also need to draw from the power that comes from minds and hearts connecting with one another for a common purpose in a spirit of love and compassion. 

The change we need to see requires policies to be energized by environmental activism and guided by the consciousness of our inter-connectedness with the Earth. It is time to bring the three together.
