One World One People

We Can Do It

Together We Can Do It

With well over 6 billion people on our beautiful blue planet, shared with an estimated 30 million species, there are thousands of languages and a myriad of different cultures, religions and belief systems. Despite our many differences, we all share one planet Earth. What happens to one of us can also happen to all of us. Therefore, we should always treat one another with respect and kindness. The benefit of working together as one team on Earth is that the possibilities for our human race become greater.

Although there are many challenges confronting humanity today, there is more than enough space, food, water and resources to ensure everyone can live in health and happiness. The real challenge is learning to live more sustainably within the carrying capacity of our planet, as well as, better appreciating the need for all life to co-exist and live in harmony.

Become An Agent For Change

So, where do we start on this adventure towards a greater Earth? The answer is, YOU! We all look to heroes in times of need; we hope they can swoop in and save the day. The truth is, all heros are normal people like you and I. Heroes simply want what’s best for the people and life around them and are prepared to do everything they can to make a difference. You can make a difference by becoming an Agent for Change and discovering the hero inside yourself. Ask yourself the question. “What can I do to improve my life and that of the planet?” Remember, big changes start small, from within your heart and mind. Once your mind is made up, there is no stopping the power of self belief and dedication.

So what have we learned in this journey of Earth’s Cool? We now know that if we want to live more sustainably, then we need to better appreciate the areas of energy, water, shelter, food, utilities and wellbeing. It all starts with a list as you go about your home seeing what you have and what you dont. Speak to your family and friends about reducing your impact on the planet. Join local groups and learn from others. Before you know it, you’ll be teaching people yourself on how they can become an Agent for Change. You may not feel like a hero yet, but you can be sure that there are many young people on our planet who are counting on heroes like you to take a stand and take action for our awesome living Earth. So, come on! ONE WORLD ONE PEOPLE.

The Hero Within

How to get started in the GREEN revolution.

Set yourself ONE goal at a time to help maintain energy and focus. Write down your goals. Find inspiration. What makes you feel good? Anticipate great outcomes. Share your ideas and goals with friends and family. Get others involved and gain their support and interest. Stick to it, persevere, look at the positives and always be kind to yourself. Remember, you are a champion for taking action and a great inspiration to future generations.

Think Positive Be Cool

Success is the outcome of thinking, visualizing,planning and taking action. The mind is where it all starts. Before you can go out and change the world you have to change the way you think and act. Remember, we all share similar needs and wants in life, whether you’re from Australia, China or Germany, whether you believe in Judaism,Buddhism or Christianity, whether you speak a different language, eat vegetarian or like your eggs sunny side up. The point is, there is one planet Earth, one human race and we must work as one if we truly want to see a sustainable future come to be. So think positive, be cool and together we can take on the challenges that will ensure our future generations have much to smile about.
