Be Inspired By What Others Are Doing
Exciting things are happening all around the world. Some have to do with protecting the environment, some are about how people are breaking down barriers and connecting with each other, and then there is the world of innovation.
Below I’ve categorized the primary issues with which the people of the world are struggling, from cleaning up the ocean, to making healthy food and clean water available to more people. See if there’s something that inspires you to want to get involved, or to create a way of helping in your community. Every little bit helps and with your efforts, you will inspire others.

People Helping People
This is the first category not because people are the most important, but because the more we help uplift our brothers and sisters with whom we share this planet, the more they will be able to help others. Click Here for People Helping People Blog Posts
Cleaning the Oceans
Not that many years ago I thought the ocean was too vast to be destroyed. But with plastics, nuclear waste, and over-fishing, healing the ocean cannot be put off any longer. See what is being done to help this precious piece of the puzzle of life on planet Earth. Click Here for Cleaning the Ocean Blog Posts
Clean Water For All
Over 600 million people around the world do not have access to clean water. Disease from dirty water kills more people than all violence, including war. 3 million children die each year from starvation. We now have the technology to feed the world, but infrastructure and water availability must first be resolved. See what is being done to help solve these two interconnect world problems.

Feeding the World
The world’s economic system is why there is poverty. Poverty causes more deaths than all other violence, including war. Not having access to enough food, or not having food that leads to good health results in millions of people starving to death, or dying from disease. With today’s technology, it is possible to feed everyone on the planet with good, healthy food. Here I will share what people are doing to help feed the world.
Our forests are essential to life because trees are a significant source of oxygen. Forest also absorb carbon dioxide, which helps clean the air. Forests are home to many species and as their habitats are destroyed, many species are on the verge of, or have already become extinct. When I was in elementary school I remember the teacher using a large pyramid to teach us about the balance of nature. In this age of corporate super-greed, that balance is reaching a tipping point. Re-foresting everywhere possible is an important step in healing the planet. Click Here for Replanting Forests blog posts
Many of the world problems are being solved by new innovation. Some are in the early stages and will need funding to supply them where they are needed. Some are in production and need funding. As people are exposed to these ideas, new possibilities are ignited. Maybe you will get an idea by seeing what others are doing. Click Here for Problem Solving Technology blog posts
Repairing the Environment
There is so much to do to repair our precious planet that it can sometimes feel overwhelming. But if each of us does even small things every day, we can turn the tide on what has been happening over the past two centuries. This section is for all those things that don’t quite fit in the other, more specific categories. If you come across something you think should be posted on EE, please feel free to send it to me via the Contact link above.
Housing is an issue for many people around the world. Some live in slums because they live in over-crowded cities. Others have sub-standard homes because of lack of money and materials. Many are homeless as they sleep next to abandoned buildings that could easily be converted into dwellings. Depending on the weather conditions and available materials, each area of the world has different requirements. Be inspired by all the ways housing issues are being addressed.

Climate change is real. It is possible that we are moving into a natural heating cycle, which has happened throughout the history of our planet. But it is clear that human activity is responsible for the speed with which our planet is warming. The consequences of this warming is more frequent and severe weather, raising of sea level as ice melts, and loss of wildlife habitat. We must do everyone in our power to stop the heating of our planet.
The world’s monetary system grew out of very different times. Money matters in that our current socioeconomic system is the cause of poverty, stress, ill health, and the destruction of our ecosystems. I will post items that here shed light on why the monetary system has kept society stunted and how we can move forward into a globally sustainable future that allows everyone to live with dignity.
Watch Peter Joseph Explain the Wealth Illusion
The typical media outlets are all slanted toward the interests of the corporations that own them in order to brainwash you. One of the goals in that brainwashing is to create division between groups of people, and between countries. Most, if not all, problems on this planet are because of various types of division. There’s lots of money to be made from this division, the biggest money-maker being war. Read Are You Brainwashed to understand more.
As I come across websites that offer news that is slanted toward connection and healing the planet, I will posted on the Slanted News page.
