|Your Green Dream for 2012 and beyond|
Gaia Education has joined the exciting UN lead campaign Green Dreams Around the World, created to give voice to the dreams of thousands of individuals as a contribution to the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, Rio+20, taking place in June 2012 in Rio de Janeiro.
From the very beginning of the first Earth Summit in 1992, people realised that sustainable development could not be achieved by governments alone. Now more than ever the urgent sustainability agenda requires the active participation of all sectors of society and all types of people and communities of interest.
The Green Dream campaign is rooted in the power of our dreams to invoke a future that is worth creating, a sustainable future that draws forth the deepest potentials of all citizens of the world.
Green Dreams were first recorded during the Son Rul-lan EDE, followed by the GENOA meeting at Wongsanit Ashram, and now spreading with Isabela in Brazil, Rafa in Mallorca, Gjohn in Orissa, Penelope in Philippines, Paola in Thailand and many other dream catchers around the world. Dreams of 20 seconds to 1 minute are recorded with smartphones or cameras, clustered in one of 14 thematic areas and then uploaded to YouTube and www.green-dream.co.uk. The intersection of green dreams in these virtual galleries is converging in networks of people who share the same vision of the future. These networks possess a strong potential for transformation because they are powered by a 100% positive charge.
Green Dreams can be a vision of tomorrow’s reality, created by the power of imagining a sustainable world. Your green dream can be about yourself, your community, your village, town, city, neighbourhood or country. It can be related to the food you eat, transport you use, energy you consume, available education, housing, arts, etc, etc. Your green dream can be about the future of life on this planet, a zero waste society, growing opportunities for low-carbon jobs or creative, local responses to global challenges. And green dreams can extend beyond the ecological world: you can dream of living in more just world, of more leisure options for the elderly or true contentment for young people…
Whatever your dream is, it’s your dream and the possibilities are infinite! Share the Future you Want
