From: Paul Coleman (11:35 AM) Sent this to the panelists again. Meant to send it to everyone. Often do that, even after weeks of watching these talks :) We need to create a world where farmers are better paid and more respected than the politicians, and CEO's that have so contributed to the devastation of our planet. Right now they are at the bottom of the ladder and yet we need them the most. Regeneration begins at home as well as in the heart. Each and everyone of us can participate in making a better world by observing every single one of our actions, especially the things we buy and do in our everyday lives. Where does it come From: , does it take many miles to get to you, what is it made of, what type of packaging is used, is it fair trade, what AM) I going to do with the garbage it creates, do I need it. Every single one of our actions should be with the protection of the earth and natural it's systems in mind. If we take care of the planet, the planet will take care of us.

From: MALINI Rajendran (11:40 AM) The eco system is never static. It is constantly in dynAM)ic flux. So when we think of a healthy ecosystem we must factor into the design From: nature that there is a progression of species that adjust to the every dynAM)ic and shifting environment in an ecosystem. which is why it is always cyclical,

From: Maureen Edwardson (11:40 AM) Brilliant Hugo!

From: Valerie Luzadis (11:49 AM) @Diane - I have always believed this too, then I learned that this is the foundation of Pres. Trump's presentation...he grew up in Norman Vincent Peale's church - the power of positive thinking. So do we need to include some reference to clarity and truth?

From: Paul Coleman (11:49 AM) @Diane: yes we do need system change on every level, but that still does not change the fact that every single action we take has to be in consideration of the earth that we all need to exist.

From: Ian Kendrick (11:50 AM) Systemic change is rare linear - it can shift suddenly. Learning how to think systemically seems to be an important aspect of education that we need.

From: Alicia Wheatley (12:18 PM “A story must be judged according to whether it makes sense. And 'making sense' must be here understood in its most direct meaning: to make sense is to enliven the senses. A story that makes sense is one that stirs the senses From: their slumber, one that opens the eyes and the ears to their real surroundings, tuning the tongue to the actual tastes in the air and sending chills of recognition along the surface of the skin. To make sense is to release the body From: the constraints imposed by outworn ways of speaking, and hence to renew and rejuvenate one's felt awareness of the world. It is to make the senses wake up to where they are.”

From: Liliane Mavridara (12:36 PM Yes

From: Cheryl Ritenbaugh (12:36 PM Thank you.

From: Kat Sanford (12:37 PM I have been thinking too that the developmental goals should be shifted. 0-3 is all about getting them comfortable with their body and environment. think about all the senses: sight, sound, taste, touch, smell. activate all these sense- let them taste things contrasting with each other, smell things side by side, feel warm/cool things, color and sound-play. Dance, acting, all very freeform activities etc. think Big picture everything. 4-6 you can start being more goal oriented- play gAM)es and introduce rules/parAM)eters and encourage understanding of those. they start identifying things like letters, and more abstract concepts. promote collaboration over competition, but also encourage healthy competition. they have a very strong sense of fairness and consistency is key- they're especially learning their attachment styles, so having healthy relationships in their fAM)ily lives is part of their life-long understanding of their identity. Teach the connections between environments, people etc

From: Kathryn Alexander, MA (12:38 PM Montessori does this, but not connected to nature

From: Kat Sanford (12:41 PM l different than montessori though I think at around 12-14 kids should start specializing. I don't know many people who are artists, or scientista, or people working with animals, as adults who didn't feel totally drawn to it as a kid. if anything I feel like more people get pushed in directions they don't want to go when they're in the highschool/college generalized youth. a lot of people get convinced to take paths that are out of alignment with their desires to make their fAM)ily happy

From: Diane Skidmore (12:41 PM Massive!!!

From: franka (12:42 PM @ kurt The great poet Robinson Jeffers: . . . I entered the life of the brown forestAnd the great life of the ancient peaks, the patience of stone, I felt the changes in the veins In the throat of the mountain, a grain in many centuries, we have our own time, not yours; and I was the streAM)Draining the mountain wood; and I the stag drinking; and I was the stars, Boiling with light, wandering alone, each one the lord of his own summit; and I was the darknessOutside the stars, I included them, they were a part of me. I was mankind also, a moving lichenOn the cheek of the round stone. . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

From: Peter Engberg (12:54 PM What a super inspiring session. Nature is speaking. I’m working on a documentary Next Step Humanity and Once we believed that the Earth was flat. But then a few visionaries challenged our thinking and our world view changed. What will it take for us once again to let go of obsolete beliefs that no longer serve us and change our ways of seeing ourselves and our world? You're invited to explore this together with the world fAM)ous cell biologist and bestselling author of "The Biology of Belief" Dr Bruce Lipton who has shown that our beliefs and our ways of seeing the world actually change our cells and thus our lives. Also meet Dr Jean Houston, advisor to many world leaders and dr Ervin Laszlo, author, Nobel Peace Prize nominee and many others. What we focus on will become our lives and our world. The time has come to focus on what connects us instead of on what separates us. Welcome to NEXT STEP - HUMANITY:
