"Harvest Song"

Long ago We were sown Now we're here Hear our song

 

The “Harvest Song” document [78 pages (3.9 MB); Nov-Dec, 2018](http://bit.ly/2Ggo3t4 ) being introduced here is the third Summary Paper from The Community Peacebuilding and Cultural Sustainability (CPCS) Initiative.    

Harvest Song

“…(finding) a value above all price for the smallest events in our daily life.”

Comprehensive, concise, and optimistic--even as it illustrates that the convergence of unprecedented challenges ahead is way beyond “uncharted territory”.  There are many ways we can achieve a convergence of unprecedented solutions.  There is much that can be done to resolve the unprecedented challenges ahead that has not yet been done.  

 

Chapters #1 and #2--Convergence of Unprecedented Challenges However much we may move forward with the technology pieces needed to hold global warming at 1.5oC, there are many other pieces to the unprecedented cultural transformation which we must also achieve--and failure to also reach positive tipping points on the many other pieces may cause us to lose positive traction, and slide downhill into cynicism.

Confidence will be dimmed by a lack of clarity until there is truthful public discourse on the full dimensions of the unprecedented challenges ahead.  Confidence will be built up when people believe that the efforts of everyone working together is a greater force than the challenges they are facing.

To maeann, and others above who have replied with encouragement--thank you. I have posted an update relating to a new paper "Brainstorming 100% Reduction in Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions ASAP Campaign" on July 6, 2019. I have not found a project sponsor for this new proposal (which is a new and necessary recalibration of older papers). Last December (2018) I had major surgery, and at age 63 my physical self is wearing down. It may take me some time to respond to specific requests; however, if the requests have to do with someone who wants to go forward with any part of my work, I will be more inclined to help. World Pulse is a very good platform. That is why I shared my work here. Best Wishes to All.
