Can we envisage for ourselves a future based not on exploiting nature but instead recognizing that nature has inherent rights to exist, thrive, and flourish? How different would our human societies, economies, and structures of law look as part of a connected, earth-centered community? And, how do we get there?
These questions will be explored in our newest Reality Tour with Dr. Vandana Shiva -- Sacred Seeding and Rights of Nature. The origins of life itself begin with the Seed. In each is contained the secrets to living in harmony with the rest of species. Join Dr. Shiva and our Community Rights director, Shannon Biggs on a Reality Tour of a lifetime to India from November 1-11, 2012.
As Dr. Shiva states, “Our highest duty is to maintain the living systems of the Earth that support our life. Earth citizenship needs Earth-centered cultures, Earth-based democracy, and Earth-centered economies.” Watch her personal invite and sign up today.
All of our Reality Tours highlight models of sustainability that currently exist around the world, and what we can learn from and share with our counterparts abroad.
Be inspired by one of our other delegations that explore sustainable solutions:
- Our Eco Cuba Exchange delegations for professionals focus on the various forms of sustainable development including such themes as permaculture farming, eco-tourism, renewable energy, conservation, sustainable building models and much more.
- Our Fair Harvest tours to the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and Palestine examine the importance of Fair Trade certification and production for farmers.
And this just in! Join Global Exchange and the Center for Cuban Studies this summer on a trip to Cuba to explore the Greening of Cuba. From August 7-14 2012 anyone can join this people-to-people licensed educational trip. Find out more.
By traveling to one of our forty destinations and seeing the models working on the ground, you will form a better understanding of how these models are functioning for a better and healthier world.
