What’s Important?

Global Mindshift, through its website, www.conversationweek.org asked people to submit what we consider the ten most important questions of our time.  One of the facilitators in Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream symposiums had some of her questions selected (I’m also a facilitator:  www.awakeningthedreamer.org)
 I don’t think there’s much to say other than, ‘Here they are”
•         How can we best prepare our children for the future?
•         What does sustainability look like to you? How do we get there? 
•         How do humans need to adapt to survive the changes predicted for this century?
•         How do we shift from “Me” to “We” on both the local and global levels?
•         How can you, as Gandhi said, be the change that you want to see in the world?
•         What kind of economic structures can best support a shift to sustainable living?
•         How should we re-invent the political process so that people feel that they have a voice?
•         What kind of leadership does the world need now?
•          How can we balance our personal needs with the most pressing needs of our community and the larger world?
•          What can we do to reduce or eliminate violence in the world?
Responses came in from 39 countries – from Uganda to Mexico to Singapore to Serbia to India to the US – making Global Conversation Week 2008 truly global.
No.  There is something else to say:  What are your answers?  How can you get your friends to read and answer for themselves?
