“We are one Earth Family on one planet , healthy in our diversity and interconnectedness. The planet’s health and our health is non separable (…)
We can be linked world wide through the spread of disease like the corona virus when we invade the homes of other species, manipulate plants and animals for commercial profits and greed , and spread monocultures. Or we can be connected through health and well being for all by protecting diversity of ecosystems and protecting the biodiversity, integrity , self organization (autopoieisis ) of all living beings , including humans.”
