Planetary Citizens

Planetary Citizens

Vision:

A truly empowered egalitarian, humanitys-_team-150x150 purely democratic and caring community, at  all levels, managing the essential  infrastructure for sustainable living and development of future technologies. A community that truly presents collaborative solutions for any and all dysfunctional systems that have ruled humanity to date, resulting in the demonstration of harmony among people and planet.

Challenge:

How do we create value in the 21st Century? How do we create bridges for a holistic systems approach to planetary administration and merge diversity effectively? Whether we fear or welcome it, there is a ‘new world order’ that is emerging. How do we, as planetary citizens, make sure that the momentum takes us toward living as ONE – one people, one planet, one time?

It all seems to make perfect sense when we realize that there are enough resources to feed, clothe, house and provide health care for everyone. We’ve placed the economics of war over human life, though, and that mindset has to change soon or we’ll self-destruct. Even with those supposedly working for ‘good’… are they more interested in sharing or selling you something?

The truly confusing piece of information is that we spend more money on corporate and military functions than, if redirected, would provide more than enough funds to feed, clothe, house and care for everyone. Of course those are statistics, but what if they are true?

Donald Keys, speech writer for U Thant in the 60s, coined the phrase Planetary Citizen on the way to creating The New World Alliance.

From Donald Keys circa 1982… “To cross over the threshold and enter into a world of new and exciting promise requires us to fulfill the tasks immediately before us: first, to become aware; second, to accept responsibility for the human situation; third, to acquire skills; and fourth, to act wisely and well, consciously and continuously on behalf of… a better future for humanity.”

The drive for transparency provides a compelling opportunity to self-organize as a Planetary Society and to explore a common desire; harmony among people and planet as a goal for planetary citizens. We’ve reached a time where possibily can become reality.

Defining a timeline
is less important than education and understanding; making sense common allows better resource management in the shared responsibility, shared benefits and shared values.

From Dr. Edgar Mitchell, sixth man on the moon…”No man I know of has gone to the moon that has not been affected in some way that is similar. It is what I prefer to call instant global consciousness. Each man comes back with a feeling he is no longer only an American citizen; he is a planetary citizen. He doesn’t like the way things are and he wants to improve them. It is a universal feeling among the astronauts.”

Consideration and compassion grow as we each embrace the challenge to change personally, professionally and politically. Chaos to order is a natural pattern, each fractal naturally resolving into the whole, a holistic system by design. Unresolved unspoken and unfulilled expectations, our natural desire to merge with something greater, offers the structural tension to move us forward toward positive change.

PlanetaryCitizens.net’s mission is to create, expose and nurture positive change in the world. We hope to give you pertinent information and relevant facts in the process. Donald Keys, speech writer for U Thant in the 60s, coined the phrase Planetary Citizen on the way to creating the historical New World Alliance, now apparently defunct.

The Occupy Movement, a global announcement of dissatisfaction in leadership and a call for change, could be seen as a call for planetary citizens. Numerous groups and organizations are adopting the 12-sector model, illustrated here, as a means toward self-organization. …and indeed, “What Would Google Do?” is worth consideration. Of course, one of the original harbingers of the need for change was the 1992 World Scientists’ Warning to Humanity.
