As we reflect on the uprisings of Race in 2020, the Hunger Pandemic going on NOW across Africa underscores the overall vulnerability to Climate Change & COVID (economic system).

Given the accelerating rate of climate and other ecological changes in motion, and understanding the current status of vulnerable populations, many are coming to grips with the idea that there will not be a return to 'normal' post-COVID in our time.
  • In this time of uncertainty for our human civilization, as we find ourselves speeding into Year Zero of the 6th Mass Extinction, how must humanity prepare and adapt to the exponential changes in-store?
  • What can our human family learn from genocides and refugees to defend human dignity?
  • With the failure of the status quo to prevent war, what must happen for social justice, wellbeing, and food security as a foundation for building peace?
Inviting in leaders from post-genocide Rwanda, Cambodia, and leading environmental health experts from Sudan (via interview), we will explore the relationship between Human Security/ Conflict/ Resources (scarcity and disparity).
