We recognize our deep embeddedness in and dependence on earth and functioning ecosystems.
We know that the 'externalities of capitalism' include the destruction of future generations to live well.... these costs being paid in perpetuity for how far past the ecosystem's productive capacity we consume.
We are concerned about catastrophic earth destruction, including the stability of our climate. Yet most people can more easily see the annihilation of the planet far more readily than visualizing the end of capitalism. We desperately need change from within our own minds! Decolonization and discussions about that are welcome.
What is the alternative to Death Culture with its biocidal infrastructure and how do we get there?
This is our STARTING POINT!
what is Sustainability?
These criteria were defined by a collaboration of Swedish Scientists and codified into:
"In a Sustainable Society, nature is not subjected to systematically increasing:
*concentrations of substances extracted from the earth's crust
*concentrations of substances produced by society
*degradation by physical means
*and people are not subject to conditions that systematically undermine their capacity to meet their needs."
