Global Dimension

Think Global Act Local. Worth thinking about the consequences of our actions. Often hard to know what is best. "Live simply that others may simply live" perhaps. Reducing our consumption and greed for more and more stuff might throw the world into a recession, but doing nothing about trying to rebalance the way we live with the rest of the earth will probably prove fatal for much of humanity. There is a growing movement, but how can we control Globalisation and use it as a force for preservation rather than our extinction. Resurgence is full of hopeful energy.

As before look at the help and support in the National Framework. Here are a few more links.
