Our planet has a real friend in Jon Symes. With clarity, grace and passion he gives us the guidance as to what to do now to heal and evolve our world.

The world is calling forth the greatest human talents and attributes from this generation in this time of extraordinary crisis and threat. We need to respond, as to previous crises, with ingenuity, determination and resolve. There is, however, an additional dimension of response required today, because we can’t solve the complex and interlinked issues that we face with the level of thinking that created them.

The problems we face are rooted in the way we live and the way we think, so these are what must change. A higher level of thinking will usher in a new way of living, in which the full depth of our humanity is enshrined and where there is no concept of exploiting other people or damaging our home, Planet Earth. We need every ounce of our ingenuity, determination and resolve right now, all motivated by a love for the world we can build rather than fear of the alternative.

This book shows how we are all co-creators of our own destiny. This simple truth is now inescapable. The aim of the book is to spread the understanding of this reality and help us to see that we each have the ability to respond to the world situation, that response-ability rests with us.

I would be very surprised if this beautifully designed Handbook didn’t inform you, provoke you, and motivate you to do your bit for a better world.
