It is all too easy to get bogged down into negative perspectives based on current politics and its manifest failings. In its recent newsletter, World Goodwill shows that there is actually much to celebrate and be positive about that is happening across the world today. It highlights the work of ten organisations that are wresting with necessary changes to the global mindset:
- Together First – making the best ideas for global governance a reality.
- World Future Council – sustainable policy solutions worldwide for a sustainable, just and peaceful future.
- National Peace Academy – preparing individuals and institutions with knowledge and skills to take actions to make our world a better, more peaceful place.
- UNHCR Nansen Refugee Award – ending statelessness.
- Global Alliance for Ministries and Infrastructures for Peace – worldwide community supporting the development of ministries and other infrastructures for peace
- The Long Now Foundation – making long-term thinking more common, fostering responsibility in the framework of the next 10,000 years.
- Local Futures – working to renew ecological, social and spiritual well-being by promoting a systemic shift towards economic localization.
- The Hague Center for Global Governance, Innovation & Emergence – helping align necessary resources for the current human and planetary transition from separation and polarisation, towards coherence and complementarity.
- Business Plan for Peace – aiming to generate a groundswell of people who believe that a world without war is possible.
- Emerge – an independent, non-profit media platform highlighting the initiatives, individuals and ways of thinking that are sowing the seeds of a new civilisation.
It is possible that a transformation of the global zeitgeist is indeed in progress. These organisations represent rays of the light showing the way forward through the dark, materialistic and egotistic times many fellow citizens are currently living through.
