“Start by doing what is necessary, then do what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”

– Francis of Assisi

Assisi, Umbria Italy, home of Francis and sustainable living

Humankind is under attack, not from our “Mother Earth” but from our own resistance to change. To shift the equation in the short-term we must reach out to people and organizations with the will and insight to advocate for action from our leaders while undertaking projects that contribute to human wellbeing. This was and is the embodiment of Francis of Assisi.

“Today, more than ever before, life must be characterized by a sense of Universal responsibility, not only nation to nation and human to human, but also human to other forms of life.” – Dalai Lama
