How do you live your life so you’re part of the solution to a sustainable future, not part of the problem?
Our home is a solitary one, isolated by the watery darkness of space. We have no way to evacuate people to relieve rising world population. Nor can we import resources to avoid the decimation of habitat we depend upon for future survival. The window is narrowing for humanity to find a way to live within the Earth’s capacity to regenerate its natural capital (just one generation, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), a daunting task given the scale and complexity of the issues involved.
But what if the solutions are hidden in plain view? What if the key to global sustainability is under our noses, available to learn from and assimilate into our lives right now?
Following a pioneering circumnavigation of the globe using only human power, a 13-year journey that required self-sufficiency aboard a 26-foot pedal-powered boat crossing the world’s oceans, explorer Jason Lewis will lead a series of expeditions to similar Micro Earths—small, isolated societies that have learned to not only survive but thrive within the constraints of a closed system.
We will unearth timeless knowledge and share it online using a variety of distribution platforms and strategic partnerships. This universal wisdom will centre around 7 principles for a sustainable future.
