Transitioning to a New Year

January 5, 2015

2014 provided some significant global events and momentum for positive change that we can build on in the new year.  Some of these include:

Sustaining emergent movements: 2014 included protest movements in Hong Kong , the U.S.  and in Peru around climate change negotiations. A new year will challenge us all to sustain the momentum towards justice, nurturing and extending our communities.

#post-2015: After much build up, 2015 marks the transition from the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Certain concepts are universal and timeless:  One of the inspirational people who passed away in 2014 was Maya Angelou  Among her many thought provoking quotes: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

What are you taking from 2014 as you transition to 2015? Here’s to the energy of a new year!
