A Change of Priorities

Interviewed in the current Rex newsletter, Annette Gellert of Women's Environmental Leadership Network proposes that the will to change, the momentum needed to solve the world's most intransigent problems, proceeds from a set of priorities very different from those that currently prevail.

"We need to consider our children’s health and quality of life first, with our personal interest and financial rewards second, which is the reverse of the current situation," she says. "We must consider how to take care of each other and benefit future generations, not just focus on quarterly profits."

If you look at the world with those priorities, how do your choices change? What issues become most urgent? Share your thoughts here.

Steveie Ray... you can get more involved by contacting the non-profits mentioned in these articles to ask how you can assist based on your skills. Non-profits are always in need of volunteers, people with various technical and business skills, and of course money.
