Vancouver Greenest City update and the Eco Cities of the World.
We are all blessed to live in the wonderful city of Vancouver. More and more of us are driving less, biking more visiting community gardens and connecting with our local communities. Cities don't grow just by themselves they happen by design, community development and planning. The Vancouver Greenest City 2020 is a bold initiative that will address Vancouver's environmental challenges, making Vancouver one of the greenest cities in the world by 2020. Around the world we see a growth in models of Eco Cities and Sustainable Cities growing everywhere as more and more of us are living in cities world wide. Vancouver Green City Action Plan.

l point is that the collapse is not just the fall and failure of the systems of society but a collapse of consciousness the death of our cultural egoistic identity can be a Spiritual opening for us, an opportunity to cast off our egocentric ways of living and to redesign our world views and local and international systems beyond business as usual thinking. www.CarolynBaker.net (https://carolynbaker.net)

“The world we have designed and made is a result of our level of thinking, thus far what we have created has in itself created problems that we cannot solve at the same level of thinking and consciousness which has created the problems and issues.

We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humankind is to survive.”
...Albert Einstein

It's now 2016 the end of an Age and the Leap into a New Era. These are not times for the faint of heart. Our world and culture are undergoing the most significant shift in consciousness, crisis and new paradigms that may have ever occurred in our known world history. Each week or so we will be gathering to discuss and share together how we can awaken and help each other our local communities and our world to embrace the positive solutions to the world shift..there is more going on you can tap into, then you can possibly imagine.

Building a world of local and global oneness and community maybe the most important work of our time.
