Planet2025 Voices Now Online!
A blog by Steven Lovink, IES Representative, Washington D.C.
26 January 2009
The IES is pleased to announce the launch of Planet2025 Voices, a new blog by its Washington D.C. representative Steven Lovink. We hope it will evolve into a stimulating place for dialogue, reflection, and action. Multiple blog voices will be offering a broad range of perspectives about humanity's windows of opportunity to shape a positive and hopeful future.
Planet2025 Voices complements the weekly news service Planet2025 News; its focus is on the sharing of opinions and ideas about a planet in peril, humanity at the crossroads, the challenges we face, and co-creation of the solutions we require. The blog also features opinion and analysis contributions on the values, norms, rules, and spirit of individual, as well as collective transformation processes that can propel humanity towards a globally sustainable way of life by 2025.
The blog's voices are highly accomplished individuals with stimulating backgrounds and life stories; it makes them uniquely qualified to nurture our thinking, to engage us about future scenarios for the decades ahead, and to show how we as global citizens, citizens of nations, and members of communities and organizations everywhere can prepare and play a positive role in the creation of a life supporting civilization. Guest voices are also highly encouraged to contribute and stimulate broad participation and a diversity of views.
