I’m glad to be a part of Global Chorus: A 365-Person Anthology of Worldwide Concern and Enduring Hope.
I’ve just received the following message from the Editor of Global Chorus, Todd MacLean; “This piece will help to provide some great general insight on this [networked governance] important social evolutionary development. So, again, thank you so very much for this submission for Global Chorus, Matthew, and it is my pleasure to now add it to the Global Chorus manuscript.”
I’m pleased to be in the company of well known people such as environmentalists David Suzuki, Paul Hawken and Jane Goodall; scientists such as Stephen Hawking and Edward O. Wilson; celebrities such as Robert Redford, Oprah Winfrey, and Bono; humanitarians such as Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu; political figures such as Mikhail Gorbachev, Prince Charles and Elizabeth May; writers like Dave Eggers and Eric Schlosser; and spiritual leaders like The Dalai Lama, Eckhart Tolle, and Thich Nhat Hanh.
About the Project
Today we are confronting the greatest challenge ever faced by a group of beings in the 4 billion year history of this planet: how to ensure not only the survival of the human race but the preservation of the rest of life on Earth.
Little by little, we have broadened our understanding of humanity’s role in determining the fate of the planet and its species. But this awareness hasn’t clearly translated into collective action. We have yet to bring together into one boundary-crossing book the visionaries of our times, our brightest minds, our most influential leaders, our most passionate voices. And now more than ever we need to hear their counsel on the future of the planet.
