What is One Minute for Earth?
ONE MINUTE FOR EARTH is an idea that invites us all to give a moment of silent reflection for our Earth and our common future, with the added understanding that by focusing on the highest and most positive outcomes to humanity’s most pressing challenges, we can create the future of our dreams.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
This initiative is an open invitation to everyone who feels concerned about the state and health of our world and wants to do something about it.
Whether you’re a school teacher who’d like to give your students the space to envision a better world, an Executive Director of an NGO who’s looking to deepen their team’s focus on the urgent issues at hand, a delegate at an international meeting where the fate of fellow human beings or other species are decided, an environmentalist or community organizer preparing a public action, or just a person who knows the earth’s in trouble and wants to do something, anything to help save it, the fact is that we’re all in this together, and together, we can help create the vision that will consciously build the world we want.
There is 1 Earth, 1 Future, 1 Fate. And there is 1 Human Race who, through imagination, envisioning and focus, has created the world we presently live in. 1 MINUTE 4 EARTH believes that, using these same creative tools, we have the intrinsic ability to heal our Earth and build a sustainable, peaceful and equitable future.
Our vision is to unite everyone, regardless of position or status, in focusing our thoughts, intentions and actions on the highest and most positive outcomes for our planet, particularly during specific important events. Otherwise, this can be done as a daily practice where, for instance, every day at 10 a.m. we pause and give a minute to envision the world we want. This sets the stage for every decision that’s made during the day. It connects our mind to our heart so that they work together. It connects us to the Earth and to everything on it. And most of all, it shows us the potential we have – you have – in creating the peaceful, equitable, healthy Earth we all want.
