Uniting for Action Mission
Organizing diverse sectors of society to accomplish the large-scale, collective actions required to effectively address the current and future challenges in our communities and in our world.
To accomplish this, we have to do three things:
- Find the people that resonate
- Organize ourselves and pool our resources
- Take large-scale collective actions that create results
Our Silver Lining
The formation of Uniting for Action was inspired by the announcement of the United States’ withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord. It was the straw that broke the camel’s back.
Uniting for Action is the materialization of what many of us have been thinking, and feeling, and working on for a very long time.
It’s the great blessing, or silver lining, of the storm clouds that are currently enveloping our society, that more and more people are getting upset enough to be willing to take action to create something different.
We clearly don’t lack enthusiasm and passion within our society right now, and yet it has not been enough to stop the spread of human, civil, and environmental injustices that are literally killing us.
As an engineer, I believe we’re missing a sufficiently organized system to align and direct all of our dispersed energies into coordinated, collective actions on the necessary scale to produce the tangible results that we urgently want and need.
Uniting for Action has been created to help get everyone on the same page with the systems and the strategies that we need to effectively address our greatest local and global challenges.
I printed and distributed this post card as I launched Energetic Planet 10 years ago, in 2008. Uniting for Action is championing the same exact message today.
