global steward defined:
A 'global steward' is someone who embraces their connection with all forms of life and consciously opts for a lifestyle that sustains not just the present, but also future generations. This concept transcends traditional stewardship—it's about the mindful intention of living in harmony with nature, rather than exerting control over it. It's a commitment to living responsibly and compassionately, recognizing that our choices impact the entire web of life.
This involves reimagining and redesigning our infrastructure, products and services to be in sync with how nature operates so that our planet can heal:
Nature runs on sunlight.
Nature uses only the energy it needs.
Nature fits form to function.
Nature recycles everything.
Nature rewards cooperation.
Nature banks on diversity.
Nature demands local expertise.
Nature curbs excesses from within.
Nature taps the power of limits.
The Buddhist recitation below offers compassionate guidance for creating a sustainable way of living:
May everyone be happy and safe, and may all hearts be filled with joy.
May all beings live in security and in peace — beings who are frail or strong, tall or short, big or small, invisible or
visible, near or faraway, already born, or yet to be born. May all of them dwell in perfect tranquillity.
Let no one do harm to anyone. Let no one put the life of anyone in danger. Let no one, out of anger or ill will, wish anyone any harm.
Let's join hands in our collective effort to protect and restore the Earth!
