Dear Gaia, our Earth.

We want to thank you for showing us the way.

Now the emergency on planet Earth is here and no one can ignore your calling.

What if we are too late? How should we choose to live out our last 12 years?

We need to shift from an individual state to a state of unity – from ‘me’ to ‘we’.

Please show us the way.

We choose Life.

We choose Unity.

We choose Reforestation.

We choose Restoration.

We choose You.

We choose Us.

We commit to raising our consciousness by being mindful and in tune with your needs.

We choose to be in service to all people and all things for all time.

We commit to stop supporting businesses and political agendas that abuse you.

You can help to address deforestation by supporting the World Land Trust, and help to seed change by supporting TreeSisters in its drive to reforest the tropics.

Reduce the impact of the products you buy by using the Giki app as your sustainable shopping companion.

There is space to plant 1.2 trillion trees – we understand we must use it.

We are deeply sorry for putting ourselves before you.

We regret supporting those who care about nothing but themselves.

Most of all we’re sorry that we didn’t act sooner.

From today we commit to living in co-creation and harmony with you and all nature.

We hope we have enough time to fix this together.

In deepest gratitude,

Us
