All the signs point to an urgent need for a change in collective consciousness. All attempts to transform systems and structures will fail, unless they are animated by a new spirit. This involves a shift from disconnected selfishness to co-responsibility as world-citizens and cooperation for the benefit of the global community. It involves the development of a global awareness encompassing more than global trade and cash flows. It involves the integration of global compassion and assuming global co-responsibility, so that humanity may live in a spirit of mutual cooperation on and with this planet.
