One Earth Collaborative
is a project of Open Spirit
The One Earth Collaborative is alive, but still in formation. You can learn all about it at www.oneearth.today, and find programs already listed.
Every living thing, human or not, depends upon the Earth. We all share this planet and cannot live without it, physically or spiritually. The Earth cries out to us to connect more deeply to the natural world and to each other. As a community, it is up to us to take responsibility for the planet onto which we were born.
The One Earth Collaborative is seeks to nurture human relationships with the Earth and its inhabitants. It is intended to be a communal endeavor, with the engagement and support of many institutions and individuals. Broadly, its goals include:
