A Change of Priorities

Share

Interviewed in the current Rex newsletter, Annette Gellert of Women’s Environmental Leadership Network proposes that the will to change, the momentum needed to solve the world’s most intransigent problems, proceeds from a set of priorities very different from those that currently prevail.

“We need to consider our children’s health and quality of life first, with our personal interest and financial rewards second, which is the reverse of the current situation,” she says. “We must consider how to take care of each other and benefit future generations, not just focus on quarterly profits.”

If you look at the world with those priorities, how do your choices change? What issues become most urgent? Share your thoughts here.
