Global Community

A global shift in awareness has been progressing more rapidly over the past decade or so.  You may have noticed the increase in social initiatives taking us away from the pursuit of personal gain and material pleasure towards the understanding we are in fact one global community.

There are a wide range of groups around the world who contribute to this realization of interdependence, harmony and collaboration, each with their own perspectives, expertise and terminology. We've adopted the term Unity Consciousness (from the Ubuntu Contribution movement) as an overall description for this heightened awareness.

Much the same as how 50 trillion cells work in harmony for their host (your body) to stay alive, we are 7 billion people who must work in harmony if we hope for our host (planet Earth) to stay alive. Fortunately, the world is already in a collaborative way, it's just a few loud mouth attention getters who are lagging behind creating the impression the old model is still viable.

Here are some wonderful established organisations and movements around the world which Activate Vernon has been very fortunate to study and learn from their success. Click their logos for more information...
