Welcome to Global Forward: Thoughtful Reflections from an Ecocentric Perspective. This blog offers discussions on social norms and social action and change specifically around climate and environmental issues. I encourage you to read, contemplate, and thoughtfully partake in the conversation. The journey of 1000 miles starts with a few humble first steps! I aspire for this to be a place of inspirations, ideas, solutions-sharing, reflections-sharing, and lens on critical action in practice. We are only as strong and motivated as the ideas and stories we share, and the connections and collaborations we are able to form. For real and sustained climate action and environmental solutions we need collaboration and collective awareness from all corners of the globe and sectors of society. If you see something you like, share it. If you are confused, question it. If you know of a way to do it better, explain it. Together we become more than the sum of our parts…..Welcome to the community!
