People deserve a say in decisions that affect their lives and every person has the capacity to make a meaningful contribution, regardless of the circumstances. We can bring about a more sustainable and just future, but only through openness, inclusivity and collaborative creativity. Each of us should strive every day to bring peace, joy, love and light into all our relationships and activities.
