Description: Interactive Dialogue of the General Assembly on Harmony With Nature

This Dialogue further offers an alternative to current anthropocentric thinking and practice which assumes the relationship among the economic, social and environmental well-being is a trade-off relationship – that one can have more of one only by sacrificing some of the others. The prevalent anthropocentric global economic and social system has led to the degradation of many ecosystems due to soil erosion, desertification, climate change, loss of biodiversity, and ocean acidification, among others. The global system is further characterized by serious distributive injustices, with many of the impacts hitting the most vulnerable populations the hardest.

The time has come to realize that the damaged inflicted by unsustainable economic activity as well as by violence and conflict on our fellow humans including poverty and other deep social inequalities, and to the Earth are inextricably linked and cannot be overcome independently of each other.
