Dear Trans4mers, Friends and Colleagues of TRANS4M!
Humanity’s skies are heavily clouded. We are moving through dramatic times.The COVID crisis, a reflection of the environmental and socio-economic mega-crisis of our time, has made the social gulfs on the planet visible for everyone. But it also brought us a higher level of human solidarity, and a shared understanding that we are all part of a larger Earth family that we need to collectively care for.
The brutal murder of George Floyd evoked a rise of global civil society against racism, colonialism and the patent injustices in our world, and a demand for systems transformation on a local and global level. It seems clear that we are, as humanity, on a crossroads. We must work together, ever more committed, ever more connected, to build a regenerative future for all life on Earth, or we might literally run out of future.
TRANS4M is responding to this call. The Art and Science of Integral Transformation, that we have developed over so many years, is proving to be an invaluable vehicle to transform our deeply divided world into a World that’s a true Home for Humanity.
While increasing our efforts, and expanding our reach, we are also converging forces to strengthen Home for Humanity, both as our global home campus in France, and as a guiding vision for all our collaborative work for planetary wellbeing. Please stay tuned, as in the forthcoming weeks and months we shall be sharing with you a few surprises and strategic evolutions.
As an immediate next step we invite you to join us for the following three online events:
For now, do travel with us through the programmes and activities presented in our newsletter, featuring highlights of our work in recent months. As we celebrate this Summer Solstice, which marks TRANS4M's 14th birthday, we look forward to continue this shared journey of integral transformation together with you all into this new era of systemic transition.
Feel free to share this newsletter with your friends and colleagues, and do let us know your reflections and feedback.
With heartfelt and trans4mative greetings.
