Building Foundation for a Loving and Peaceful World.  This report of the second day describes the panel of highly qualified individuals that considered “Caring for our planet: A new way of being”.  The audience was asked to reflect: How might our ‘duty of care’ and a growing collective consciousness change decision-making processes in ways that express more love and foster compassion for the planet?

IMG 0380 reducedThe first solar powered bus in the UK has been launched in Brighton. One of our contacts sponsored this project through the Big Lemon company and he had the chance to name it Om Shanti (means "I am peace").  When it was launched our friend spoke and shared what its name means.  The name was much appreciated. The bus is bright yellow so will most definitely be noticed.
