This Earth Day, Shumei is endorsing ONE PLANET, ONE HEALTH: Making Peace with the Earth, a new initiative being launched by our partner, Navdanya International. This initiative has formed a planetary coalition with a call to action for individuals and organizations across the globe to work in harmony with each other for the health and wellbeing of all living beings on the planet. More than 500 individuals and organizations from across the globe have signed on to support. ONE PLANET, ONE HEALTH makes a clear connection between the current global health pandemic and the climate emergency we are facing.
As communities around the world recognize this 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, it is a crucial moment for all of humanity to reassess their relationship with Mother Earth and make peace with her. Shumei encourages and promotes this through the practice of Natural Agriculture by recognizing the interconnectedness of the entire ecosystem, including our relationship with Nature, ourselves and our community. Making peace with the Earth encourages us to acknowledge that we are part of Nature and we are not separate. One of the ways to cultivate this connection and relationship is to find the beauty in our environment and one another.
During the COVID-19 shutdowns and uncertainty, many people have noted the healing effects of Nature. This Earth Day is an opportunity for us to apologize to Mother Earth for the harm we have done and to recommit caring for the Earth. There are a number of actions to help sow the seeds of new community of care and peace. Click here to learn more and support ONE PLANET, ONE HEALTH.
