Human history and natural history can no longer be separated – human health and the health of the planet go together. We are currently experiencing the results of the climate crisis and its destructive potential. This is of particular relevance for younger generations as they will inherit the political and economic systems that are now being reshaped in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Sood states, “The foundation of We The Planet is to create a movement where we as humans must go beyond, ‘We The People’, and focus on something that is larger than ourselves.”
The We The Planet global campaign was launched in 2019 with H.E. Thomas Remengesau Jr., President of Palau, whose country is facing grave consequences due to climate change. Every year we dump over 30 billion tons of carbon into the atmosphere destroying, polluting and poisoning the planet on a massive scale threatening the very foundation we depend on for survival and wellbeing.
We The Planet has been championed by global leaders and icons who challenge all of us to reimagine a better approach to planet, people, peace, prosperity and partnership to protect all life on the planet, and safeguard cities and nations from the negative effects of climate change.
We The Planet will be launching global virtual events throughout the remainder of this year to raise money for first line responders and support global climate change initiatives, including championing Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus’ book A World of Three Zeros, the summit’s official featured book. Information about upcoming events will be posted to the website: https://www.wetheplanet.io/
