The earth has been here long before humans were and will be here long into the future, with or without us. However new choices for our future are emerging as humanity has hit an incredible milestone – our population is now at a size where we have the power to influence things at the planetary scale!* The question now becomes what are we using this power for: Creating a world that can nurture us long into the future? – Or a future where we’ve caused a catastrophic failure of the earth’s ability (or desire) to sustain us?

In this appropriately end-of-year Sip Session, Ripi Singh, PhD a global advocate for the proliferation of sustainable business practices and Brent Robertson, generator of humanity centered organizations will lead an exercise designed to give us all a better understanding of our planetary effect and elucidate new ways we can contribute to the wellbeing of the only home we know – Planet Earth.
