El Lugar (The Place) is where desires and possibilities can be created for a different world.El Lugar Foundation
There is a growing awareness on the planet that something needs to change if we as a species are to survive. Every day we hear alarming news about climate change threatening our food supply and irreparably damaging the ecosystems of the planet. Environmental organizations are fighting corporations to stop global deforestation, pollution, depletion of water sources and the destruction of natural habitats through man-made disasters like oil spills and nuclear accidents. Closer to home we have commercial farmers destroying soil health by using GMO seeds and chemical sprays to achieve higher crop yields yet this mass produced food is now less and less nutritious for our bodies.
So why do we continue on this path when it is not really working for us?
We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.Albert Einstein
