“We have to transform ourselves out of this crisis.” ~ Erik Solheim

“Over 150 years the only pathway for human development has been at the cost of the environment. Let us learn. Let us not bounce back to the un-resilient, vulnerable, pre-crisis situation we had.” ~ Johan Rockstrom

“We have been confronted brutally with our vulnerability and our common destiny. Man cannot exclude itself from Nature.” ~ Nicolas Hulot

“Mankind has been living in harmony with nature for millennia. What removes harmony is greed. Earth has enough for everyone’s need not for everyone’s greed.
We have to focus on this inner phenomenon. Develop inner peace and resilience since the well-being of individuals and planet are interlinked.” ~ Gurudev
