If you want to take environmental action but don't know how then this is the paper for you. Learn the different ways you can help the world around you.
Let this sink in. If we can do it, you can too!
Each project on its own doesn’t seem to make a difference. And in truth, no project on its own CAN make a difference. But TOGETHER we can achieve great things. Look carefully at the planetary boundaries we have crossed in the image above and you will notice that 85% of the harm is related to industrial agriculture. The way we grow our food involves poisoning the land; having it run off into rivers, lakes, and oceans; while displacing or destroying vital ecosystems; all the while making people less healthy as the quality of food declines.
Imagine if all of the ecological farming techniques that have been developed over the last 50 years were to somehow spread worldwide and become the dominant mode of food production. This alone would go a long way towards avoiding the worst of climate change while buffering hundreds of millions (if not billions) of people from starvation and the violence that quickly follows when people no longer have stable food supplies.
But this is only scratching the surface of what can — indeed must — be done. A great deal is also known about how to create “circular” economies based on regenerative economic principles. Holistic and systemic understandings now exist for how human societies can organize themselves such that sustainability, health, and resilience “pop out” as emergent properties due to their interactions.
One way to regenerate our planet is to first regenerate the local ecosystems of local places. Then we measure our progress toward national targets of health and resilience as we coordinate across regions to move toward planetary health outcomes. Sounds easy in principle, but this is really going to be hard. In fact it is probably the most difficult thing humans have ever done!
Onward, fellow humans.
