Humanity is at a crossroads. With dangerous and misguided technologies we have plundered the Earth for the enrichment of the few, leaving a legacy of environmental degradation and destruction and threatening the very existence of human life on this planet. In our spiritually disconnected and short-sighted way we are destroying the Earth, the very source and sustainer of life. It is time to turn away from the “extraction mentality” that makes the earth into a mere commodity to be exploited. It is time to come back to a simple, sustainable way of living rooted in respect for the Earth and the deep interconnectedness of all life.

The Walk for Earth and Life is a call to consciousness, a strong refusal of the logic that gave rise to the ongoing crisis in Fukushima, to the horrors of climate change, and the poisoning of our water resources by fracking. All are welcome to join us for any amount of time.
