The Voices 4 Mother Earth gathering led by wisdom keepers from around the world – Indigenous elders, scientists, farmers, youth and more – took place in parallel of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change 21st  Conference of the Parties (UNFCCC COP-21) from 6-11 December in Millemont, France, and now call for unified action to ensure that the next seven generations have a world in which they can live.

This unique gathering was dedicated to the sharing of ancient wisdom, natural laws and supporting technology to unfold a clear, unified and unprecedented new paradigm for humankind. Providing the direction and practice to restore and live well in balance with Mother Earth as well as calling for participation on a planetary scale.

“It is clear that we are now at the eve of a planetary breaking point, a point of no return. When such a shift occurs, systems shut down with catastrophic consequences and there will be nothing human beings can do to reverse this. It is evident that Indigenous Peoples are a vital part of the solution to restore our sacred relationship with our rapidly changing ecology. Eighty percent of our last pristine nature has been cared for and protected by generations of Indigenous peoples’ knowledge, experience and wisdom always with a strong spiritual connection to Mother Earth.”

Through the gathering, wisdom keepers have recognized that with practical earth knowledge, experience and local community efforts we can take life back into our own hands by co-creating a better world with new initiatives.
