WAAS partnerd with GlobalMindED, Foundation for Climate Restoration (F4CR), and The Alliance Center to co-produce a series of webinars during the Earth Day week of April 20-24 focusing on the urgent need for climate restoration and dynamic global leadership for social transformation.

The GlobalMindED 2020 Webinar Series was featured on the Zoom platform Monday through Friday on April 20-24 at 8AM PST, 11AM EST, 5PM CET.

GlobalMindED is an innovation network of inclusive leaders committed to closing the equity gap by creating a capable, diverse talent pipeline across industries and sectors nationally and globally through education, entrepreneurship, employment and economic mobility. The mission of F4CR is to catalyze action to build full capacity by 2030 to restore the climate by 2050. The Alliance Center is a network of non-profit organizations, for-profit businesses, government gencies, academic institutions and community members to collaboratively create sustainability-focused solutions.

The pandemic has revealed our individual and collective vulnerabilities and interdependencies and requires coordinated global action now. This program will examine ways to respond to the new socio-economic conditions and the planetary momentum for change induced by the COVID-19 pandemic, focusing on preparedness for transformative change toward a new social, economic and political paradigm. Leadership is needed at all levels to transform the growing disunity into global solidarity based on complementary topdown and bottom-up initiatives. Eminent leaders of international organizations and initiatives partnering with WAAS will discuss the psycho-social, cultural, economic and political impact of the pandemic that made the world stop but gave the planet a moment to breathe and the new leadership needed to take us to the new paradigm of human development aligned with natural laws and planetary boundaries.

The Fellows and their respective organizations and networks were invited to join the positive global momentum building up in the midst of the crisis and to mark the Earth Day with WAAS and our valued partners. We invite you to watch the videos in the exploration of globally minded system for ecological economies, regenerative cultures and new social architecture.
