The Global Regeneration Corps is emerging as a Unifying Call to Action
As the climate shifts state, so must the global progressive movement. The millions of organizations that have worked tirelessly but essentially independently for a more equitable world must come together in an unprecedented strategic formation that draws all their strengths together at this critical hour. Only radical collaboration among those who understand the gravity of Code Red for Humanity and are willing to act collaboratively will suffice to save us.
In this spirit, the Global Regeneration Corps is emerging from hundreds of organizations as a Call to Action to people of goodwill everywhere to come together. It is a unifying ethos to galvanize all citizens and organizations who are willing to face the Code Red emergency and rise to the climate challenge. The GRC does not belong to any organization. The GRC belongs to everyone as a global alliance, a global brand, united by a common purpose and a common commitment to collaborative regenerative action.
This common purpose will enable organizations everywhere to unite and work together under the following Principles:
Regeneration is the only option to revert Code Red and key to our survival
The only antidote to extinction is regeneration. It is no longer possible to be sustainable with a broken environment. Humanity must be proactively regenerative. The challenge is not just to survive but to thrive. Regeneration means “rebirth.” A key pathway of opportunity towards Regeneration lies with Doughnut and Regenerative Economics which places ecological systems and constraints as the framework for human thriving. Regeneration recognises that we are Nature and must now actively regenerate the world by aligning human activity with planetary systems and processes. Alignment with Nature is therefore the key to human survival and is at the heart of Regeneration. Our task at this hour is to align our human energy with Nature so that we create a web of regeneration around the world.
All Generations must come together with youth in the lead
The GRC is an invitation for people of all ages and walks of life to come together and address our Code Red situation through regenerative action with a special focus on empowering our youth to take action and leadership. We must all work together to co-create and implement youth led solutions because only an empowered youth can lead us to a regenerative future. Youth understand the gravity of our climate emergency and are ready to lead. We just need to support them with the tools and resources they need to lead our work together. Regenerating the world must become the source of right livelihood for the emerging generations, which means they must be resourced to do what now needs to be done. Nothing less than this will suffice to save us.
