The12 Declaration

There is no doubt that we are now in a state of global

emergency. This unprecedented worldwide crisis is a
symptomof a muchdeeperproblem- the currentstate of our
consciousness:howwe thinkaboutourselvesandour world.
We have the urgent need, and now the opportunity, for a
complete rethink: to reconsider our values and priorities, to
understand our interconnectedness and to begin a new
direction- livingin harmonywith natureandeachother.

TheCrisisAndThe Opportunity
Every person, community, and society in the world is already, or will
soon be, affected by the crisis, through climate change, economic
breakdown, ecosystem collapse, population pressure, food and water
shortages, resource depletion, nuclear and other threats. If we
continue on our present unsustainable path, by mid-century the Earth
could become largely uninhabitable for human and countless other
forms of life. However, total system-collapse could occur much
sooner caused by eco-catastrophes or escalating wars triggered by
religious, geopolitical or resource conflicts.
These threats are real. The underlying causes of the present global
crisis have been building momentum for decades and could soon
become irreversible. Estimates of when the point of no return will be
reached have been reduced from the end of the century, to mid-
century, to the next twenty years, and recently to the next five to ten
The window of opportunity for pulling out of the current crisis and
breaking through to a peaceful and sustainable world may be no
more than a few years from now. This timeline coincides with the
many forecasts and prophecies that speak of the ending of the
current cycle of human life on this planet, and the possible dawning of
a new consciousness by the end of the year 2012.
Today, forward-thinking groups and individuals all over the world are
addressing the many opportunities presented at this critical time.
Designs for sustainable systems, structures and technologies are
being developed and implemented in all sectors, at all levels and in
every society. This global awakening is a hopeful sign of the vitality of
the human spirit and our ability to respond to the dangers we now
face with insight and creativity.
The totality of our current efforts does not yet match the scope, scale
and urgency of the necessary transformation. But if we collaborate
and act with vision, foresight and commitment we can lay the
foundations of a global community that is both peaceful and
sustainable. We may then ensure our survival and wellbeing, as well
as that of future generations. While the window of time is still open,
our top priority, as global citizens, is to accelerate our evolutionary
shift to a planetary consciousness and, together, lay the foundations
for a peaceful, just and sustainable world.

An UrgentCall
We accordingly issue this urgent call to all the peoples of the world to
deepen our awareness of both the dangers and the opportunities of
the global crisis. We declare our firm commitment to work together to
bring about a timely and positive WorldShift, for the survival and
wellbeing of all the peoples of the human community and the
flourishing of all life on Earth.
