Better World

It seems a bit pretentious, "better world," and what that means looks different for everybody, but I've created this niche on These World to explore the people, practices, and ideas that may help sustain health on personal and planetary levels.

Because in essence, what I mean by "better" is "healthier."

I believe we all have the right to clean air and water, and that preserving ecosystems is an essential part of sustaining these necessities. I also believe in food systems that offer people nutritious food without polluting the environment. And finally, I believe we have a right to live in a culture that promotes equality and tolerance in the full meaning of each word. 

Those are my beliefs guiding how I envision a better world. Needless to say, I'm always open for conversation about my views expressed in these posts. I encourage it, because a better world also includes, for me, a better understanding of one another.
