What?

(...common goals...)

Rethink!

Trapped within the institutional framework of commodity exchange, every reformist attempt to mitigate or adapt to ongoing planetary changes such as global warming, ocean acidification, deforestation, freshwater depletion, and species extinction, is doomed to fail.

.....

Unite!

What is to be done can only be done together. Indeed, nothing should deter us from building new bonds of solidarity, from uniting our struggles for planetary sustainability.

.....

Replace!

(...reimagining the struggle...)

How do we break the ideological hegemony of capitalism?

What can replace the unequal exchange mechanisms of capitalism?

How do we turn global supply chains into planetary solidarity chains?

Why is the neighborhood perspective essential to sustainable human development?

How is radical democracy and radical creativity related to human needs?

Poem: Nowhere

The lawns are burning, the houses are burning, and the asphalt roads are melting; nowhere to hide, nowhere to go; an unsustainable society is disappearing before our eyes; the crows are singing a famous song.

Poem: Leaves

Still falling, covering the ground; already organic matter, already digested by worms; teaching us to love, keeping us alive.
