One Earth Action

Forms and Opportunities for Engaged Practice

There is a way to be a human being
that causes all life to thrive.

— Woman Stands Shining (Pat McCabe)

No small part of our challenge is the pervasive poverty of agency. How often do we hear, including from ourselves, “but I’m just one person”? Yet both Dharma and sociology disagree. Our words and actions matter so much and indeed they are all we have.

While we won’t be “saving” this Earth, our opportunity is to meaningfully respond. We can action that is deeply rooted, skillful, strategic, unattached to specific outcomes. We can speak in ways that actually help.
