Our Historic Moment

Purpose, Planet, And Places to Intervene

by David Jaber

How do we create the world that works for all?

What do we understand that means?

And how do politicians, business leaders and non-profits best work together on this front?

Our Historic Moment articulates the vision for our activity across the globe and dives into a rich exploration of the root causes that block us from achieving our vision. Whether simply inertia, lack of information reaching the right people, or other factors, pitfalls abound. Real paths forward to avoid the pitfalls are available to us, but our time to act is now. In fact, it is critical that we do so.

Whether looking to science, religion or other sources, we have wisdom that we can draw on in this quest. Moving forward has real implications for:

  • political leaders
  • business managers
  • policy makers
  • ecology advocates
  • those working for social justice

Those in these roles have a real opportunity to maintain what's working as well as drive positive change.

Critical to this work is understanding the best leverage points for intervention, so we are as effective as we can possibly be. Without understanding those leverage points, our efforts can be wasted. With vision defined, leverage points clear and mindset properly attuned, our actions naturally flow from there. All can contribute toward the many solutions that are articulated here, and even more importantly, define their own solutions using the Our Historic Moment framework.

At 100 pages, Our Historic Moment is a manageable read to help you see the path forward.

No matter whether you're new to tackling solutions for your community, country and planet; feel frustrated by the state of affairs, but are not seeing how to proceed; or already consider yourself an actively engaged change agent, welcome.
