One world, one natural order, one humanity.
Because until we realise the connected-ness of the planet we will not feel a responsibility for our actions and life-style.
In the words attributed to the native American Chief Seattle :
“Whatever befalls the earth befalls the children of the earth .
The air is precious, for each of us share the same breath.
This we know, the earth does not belong to us, we belong to the earth.
This we know, all things are connected, like the blood which unites one family.
We did not weave the web of life; we are merely a strand in it,
Whatever we do to the web we do to ourselves.”
What follows in our 'Humanifesto' is about making those connections, and recognising not only their interdependence, but more importantly the fact that we have a responsibility - a 'duty of care'.
