Are you waiting for someone else to solve the world's problems? Or praying for our leaders to use a magic wand to make it all better? Or could it be that somewhere inside of you the answer is waiting to be awakened and activated? Our live video conference calls will be unlike anything else you have attended. They are designed as a conversation between the speaker, moderator Konda Mason (social entrepreneur and Pachamama Alliance ally), and you.
The Pachamama Alliance is moving in a bold direction. Our community is awake, and hungry for the next step. As we continue to answer the call of the Achuar to change the dream of the modern world, The Pachamama Alliance community is requesting a deeper engagement with the issues of our time. We are now being called to provide more information and tools that lead to solutions-based thinking and decisive actions.
We're looking for a different conversation that goes beyond the superficial introduction of the issue. So we asked people to prepare for a deeper conversation by reading the material in advance, ready to jump into a robust conversation that begins where the material left off.
The opportunity is here.
The invitation is now.
