ISF2020: Vandana Shiva & David Suzuki: The Virus is a Wake-up Call
Legendary environmental warriors Vandana Shiva and David Suzuki, come together in this rare conversation across continents. Both are past winners of the ‘Right Livelihood Prize’ often referred to as the ‘alternative Nobel’, and have had enormous local and global impact through their work.

Now, in the middle of a global pandemic, they invite us to consider the opportunity we have to change our ways of being as a species, and how we must truly be “all in this together”.

Partially fits ASIF topic "Lessons from COVID-19".

Vandana Shiva: "We need to regulate Big Money, Big Oil, Big Ag, Big Pharma, Big Tech, Big Finance", by Charlie Smith on May 23rd, 2020.

"After the pandemic, the media must focus on climate breakdown the way it's focusing on the coronavirus: all day every day.

The fact that the media ignored it for decades and then chose to report "both sides" contributed to humanity's complete lack of action."

Dissident Circles Too Often Become Another Nerdy Hobby Group
It’s important to hold an acute awareness of why you got into this stuff in the first place. Whatever your individual ideological position, you got into this because you want to actually change things; to change the world, to cause a movement away from humanity’s unhealthy patterns and toward health. It’s not about petty vendettas against opposing factions or subfactions or individuals who don’t see things exactly the same way you do. And your energy expenditure should reflect this.
This thing is about changing the world, and changing you. That’s it. If you’re not actually, concretely doing one of those two things in any given moment while engaging in dissident circles, you’re just participating in another nerdy hobby group, with about as much consequence.

Biodiversity Week (May 18-22) • Online
Over Biodiversity Week (May 18-22), we in the Global Youth Biodiversity Network will flood the digital landscape with global conversations, calls to action, empowering videos, exciting activities and video teach-ins about the vital links between biodiversity and climate change, traditional knowledge, health, food security, and culture.

Through this week of action, the Biodiversity Week will create awareness about the building blocks of nature and ecosystems, drive initiatives big and small, give youth across the globe a collaborative platform, and demand bold action for people and nature.

The week will lead up to the International Day for Biological Diversity where all the themes from the week will come together, highlighting our relationship with Biodiversity and with Nature.

"The International Day for Biological Diversity (IDB) takes place every year on May 22. It is the United Nations-sanctioned international day for promoting awareness around biodiversity issues."

Pope Francis | General Audience | 2020-04-22
Because of our selfishness we have failed in our responsibility to be guardians and stewards of the earth. “We need only take a frank look at the facts to see that our common home is falling into serious disrepair” (ibid., 61). We have polluted it, we have despoiled it, endangering our very lives. For this reason, various international and local movements have sprung up in order to appeal to our consciences. I deeply appreciate these initiatives; still it will be necessary for our children to take to the streets to teach us the obvious: we have no future if we destroy the very environment that sustains us.
How can we restore a harmonious relationship with the earth and with the rest of humanity?
We need a new way of looking at our common home. For this is not a storehouse of resources for us to exploit.
We are aware of the importance of cooperation as an international community for the protection of our common home. I urge those in positions of leadership to guide the preparations for two important international Conferences: COP15 on Biodiversity in Kunming, China, and COP26 on Climate Change in Glasgow, United Kingdom. These two meetings are of great importance.

Anyway we will check every one of you every 3 days from now on.

"She owes the state $256,000, which she is expected to pay, even though the fines were only accrued on the condition that they might coerce her to speak."

Just For This Moment
We could sit here all day
talking about how the news man is always lying
or how both parties are functionally the same
or how the Bastards toil endlessly to hide the truth from us
or how we know better than all those foolish brainwashed sheep
who are just trying to survive another day on this earth.

We could sit here all day doing that.

just for this one moment,
we could look inward
and be honest with ourselves.

nanning, boring as repetition is but we have to refresh memory sometime:  Arctic Café 2019-09-18 UNCCD COP14.

Planet is here to support us, this is a platform upon which we live and this platform has to be ideal for life.
When I say life - all life, you cannot make it in such a way that this works only for human beings not others.
Every creature has to live, they are far more important for maintaining the balance in this planet than human beings,
Without human beings the planet will do very well, so all life here has a life of its own, they are not here to serve us.

These are the things that need to get across to the humanity. Thank you very much.
