These deeply moving videos give a kaleidoscopic view from our greatest visionaries reconciling nature, culture and spirit in a revolution from the heart of nature. Restoring the Earth, our communities and our human wholeness requires a rediscovery of Earth-honoring reverence in our ethical and religious worldviews: our interdependence with the web of life, each other and the cosmos. It’s a change of heart inspired by wonder, reverence and gratitude.

    The End of Sustainability | Paul Hawken

    The End of Sustainability | Paul Hawken

    Social entrepreneur and author Paul Hawken challenges the conflicting duality between the profit-driven world of business and media and a world that ensures the commons to support all life for future generations. “The sustainability movement, without forsaking its understanding of living systems, resources, conservation, and biology, must move from a resource flow model of saving the Earth to a model based on human rights, the rights to food, the rights to livelihood, the rights to culture and community, and the right of self-sufficiency.”

    This speech was given at the 2002 Bioneers National Conference.
