When it comes to the environment, there are some people who understand the need for conservation and others that won’t until they have a personal reason why they need to. Then there are those who are really not sure what to do because they just don’t get it. In the book, Beautiful and Abundant, Building The World That We Want, author, Bryan Welch points out that “we are the only species that can conceptualize its own impact on its habitat” and actually do something about it.

The big question remains, how exactly do we achieve this? Do we need to go back to living in a cave in order to evolve as human beings? (Of course not!) We need to do things smarter, conserve the existing resources that we have while we figure out how to use available untapped resources as we work towards cleaning up the mess we have created as a species.

Bryan Welch offers a great deal of food for thought with his suggestion that we should envision the world we want to live in as a successful existence before we begin to take the necessary steps in order to create it. The key thus lies within our attitude. We need to begin with a shift in our focus. If we had a positive attitude and thought about the possibilities, we could achieve so much more. However, with so much of the planet at war, how can people with different belief systems, cultures and backgrounds work together to achieve this? How can businesses find the balance between profitability and conscientious business practices? Can we actually create an abundant world that is truly sustainable? How can we even fathom being able to create enough food for a rapidly growing population while we are running out of resources?

In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer will speak to Bryan Welch to discuss his best-selling book and how we can all work together to achieve sustainability. Stay tuned!
