Global Earth Repair Summit

The Global Earth Repair Foundation is committed to spreading the knowledge of ecosystem restoration to manage the climate and heal the planet. Across the Earth, at the hands of thousands of nonprofit organisations and millions of people, habitats and biomass are being created and restored to health and resilience. We are aiding this movement through hosting conferences, workshops and classes, as well as producing educational content to spread the word to as many people as possible. By collaborating with some of the strongest voices in international ecosystem restoration and permaculture, we can deliver you and others the knowledge and practical skills needed to retain water, increase plant cover, green barren lands and restore the ecological functions of our landscapes.

David Suzuki’s Endorsement

Back in the Nineties, Earth Repair was managing a large 11 acre property which was created to demonstrate soil production through hygienic, aerobic no-dig composting, and growing permaculture-style organic food-forests in Hazelbrook, Blue Mountains.

Here is where the Earth Repair Charter Global Solution Strategy was conceived. It as become a highly refined guide to a safer, saner, healthier and happier future for all humanity.

When the Charter was developing, many endorsements from notable individuals and organisations were provided. We were thrilled to receive the following from Dr David Suzuki. See list under the Charter for other endorsements that reveal the true value of this global solution strategy.

Mind-Vitamin Thought-Seeds as Street Art

Mind-Vitamin Thought-Seeds brighten dull spots with continuously radiating inspiration.

These could be adopted by towns and cities everywhere in any language and with potential to become a unique Blue Mountains export industry.

Download 56 Mind-Vitamins

The action was implemented as part of ‘Art Street’ just prior to the 2013 Blue Mountains Winter Magic Festival in Katoomba. The goal was to brighten dull-spots and appropriate empty spaces around the town, with colourful laminated placards of meaningful wise quotes.

The quotes were selected from community submissions and from sages through the ages. They are brief reminders of self-evident truths, practical knowledge and useful wisdom; clear, simple and easy for most people to understand. The quest is to share a wealth of universal wisdom to inspire beneficial outcomes for the many local people and tourists who visit this spectacular Blue Mountains City of Katoomba.

The purpose of Mind-Vitamin quotes is to help uplift moods, enhance optimism, increase positive mental health, eliminate anxiety, depression and pessimistic thinking, and help enable feelings of greater peace and happiness.

Places where Mind-Vitamin Thought-Seeds would be usefully displayed are on: public walls; railway stations; homes; schools; hospitals, factories, and community, youth, aged care and neighbourhood centres. If used in juvenile and refugee detention centres and adult correctional facilities, they would probably have a lasting beneficial impact on everyone who absorbs them.

The Mind Vitamin placards are artistically presented and laser printed on size A3 card, laminated and cleverly affixed up high and out of reach but still easily visible to passers by. They are simple and inexpensive to produce and put up. They are also easy to remove and/or replace by affixing the new art over the old. They radiate thought-provoking inspiration 24 hours a day 365 days a year.

A goal is for the Blue Mountains to set a precedent and motivate other towns and cities to emulate the example of this action. Translated into each language, Mind Vitamins could be brightening dull spots in cities and towns throughout the world.

Mind-Vitamin Thought-Seeds have the potential to enhance the overall graffiti image. It is a unique community advancement initiative beginning in this great Blue Mountains ‘City of the Arts’ amidst a glorious World Heritage National Park.

For the 2014 Blue Mountains Winter Magic Festival, 42 new Mind-Vitamin Thought-Seed placards were put up and many positive responses have already been reported. There are a number of people who are prepared to give testimonials in support of this innovative project at the time when we seek endorsement and sponsorship from the Blue Mountains City Council, local business owners, organisations and the community.

Suggestions for quotes or offers of support for this proposal, please contact Franklin Scarf on 0408 267 195 or franklin@earthrepair.net

PLAN FOR PEACE

Part of the plan is to motivate the creation of Multi-Faith Now-Age Learning Centres in all appropriate places throughout the world. These will help educate people to co-exist in harmony as one family, sharing the Earth as a common home.  Ideally, the essence of the knowledge will be in the conscious awareness of each individual person, dedicated to optimistic thinking and Now as the latest best time for all humanity. 

You are invited to participate in this Plan For Peace to help honour the countless numbers of people throughout time who have unjustly died at the hands of aggressors; particularly those who continue to suffer human rights abuses today.

Optimistic Nowist Thinking consists of applying the most practical knowledge and useful wisdom from every religion, faith and philosophical ideology, towards the creation of a safer, saner, healthier, happier and more loving world for everyone.

Nowists are people who are dedicated to the optimistic way, enjoying the latest moments as their best time knowing that even better is yet to come. Optimistic Nowist Thinkers aspire to always look on the positive side of life with an attitude of gratitude. They’re confident about turning difficulties into opportunities and transforming problems into solutions.

The World Unity and Peace emblem contains icons and symbols representing most of the diverse beliefs that have influenced humanity throughout history. This emblem is designed to motivate achievement of inner and world peace for enjoyment by everybody and to prompt unity and co-operation between all religions, faiths, ideologies, philosophies, schools of thought, peoples and nations.

The icons embraced within the emblem collectively represent the ideological beliefs of the majority of the world’s peoples. From the top they include in clockwise order: Australian Aboriginal; Indigenous American and Canadian; Polynesian; Tribal African; Rastafarian; Communism; Socialism; Paganism; Science; Bahai; Sufism; Islam; Christianity; Judaism; Egyptian; Taoism; Hinduism; Sikhism; Mayans; Shintoism; Buddhism; and Zororastrianism. 

Now is the best time for each one of us to recognise and respect ourselves and every other person as a unique, original, unrepeatable, valuable and important citizen of Earth and member of an awesome human family. We all are sovereign-born and free and equal in dignity and human rights. We share this beautiful world with billions of other kindred spirits and aspire to attain and maintain inner and world peace.

One purpose of this initiative is to create a World Unity and Peace web site containing authentic, succinct and concise summaries of the history and essential precepts of each ideology. 

People are invited to participate and selections of practical knowledge and useful wisdom from every culture will then be included in a Now-Age book with accompanying mind-vitamin thought-seed poster-cards of self-evident truths for wide circulation and open display. 

Selections can be read at community gatherings of Churches, Houses of Worship, Mosques, Shrines, Synagogues and Temples throughout the world.

It is proposed that elected leaders from each group participate in researching and developing the very best descriptive summaries of each school of thought, for inclusion in the website and book, towards helping all to realise their inner-peace, transcend differences with all others, peacefully co-exist and fully enjoy healthy, happy and loving lives. The poster-cards, well-placed, will continuously radiate an inspirational and educational influence 24/7.

The Council for World Unity and Peace proposal has been created in response to an Earth Repair Charter directive which states: “Encourage all religions, faiths, nations and peoples to co-exist in harmony as one family sharing the Earth as our common home”.  

The one-page global-vision Charter has been produced to promote implementation of a long-term world-wide action plan for a future free from wars, and humanity united in peace. The Charter presents succinct, practical, self-evident and achievable solutions.  The Charter can be seen at earthrepair.net

To effectively enhance the future for everyone, only one generation needs to be positively influenced to think and act more wisely to help improve the world for all.

Most recognise that inner peace and world peace are interrelated. Peace on Earth depends on the level of peace within each individual. Peace can be found in the Here and the Now within every single one of us as a hidden splendor, nearer than hands and feet and closer than breathing. It simply waits there to be realised and experienced.

The proposed World Unity and Peace website, Wisdom Book and posters, are to provide a positive and optimistic approach to enable better understanding between different beliefs. Nowwww is recognised as the common uniting element. The quest is to reveal useful wisdom and valuable knowledge to enable each person to experience continuous and increasing peaceful happiness.

Included in the productions will be the astronomical perspective and humanity’s position in the infinite universe. It is to cover outer and inner space and awareness of infinity and eternity consciousness, past, present and future.

Now more than ever, let’s all do everything we can to help peace grow in the world. Think peace. Talk peace. Love peace. Eat for peace. Resolve conflicts for peace. Walk for peace. Smile for peace. Enjoy inner peace and vision world peace.  Make and wear Peace Now badges or T-shirts. Write letters and sign petitions for a Ministry or Department for Peace in every country. Make and display White flags or placards for peace. Help grow food forests for peace. In silence or audibly, regularly sing, chant or think ‘peace nowwww’  for an instant mood-elevating experience.

Please share and network this information with your local State and Federal Members of Parliament, religious and community leaders, social and mainstream media and with family and friends. 

Help lobby governments everywhere to support this plan as a worthy priority. Media’s participation is encouraged to publicise this plan as priority news.
