We urgently need to make compassion a clear, luminous and dynamic force in our polarized world. Rooted in a principled determination to transcend selfishness, compassion can break down political, dogmatic, ideological and religious boundaries.

It is the path to enlightenment, and indispensable to the creation of a just economy and a peaceful global community.  – Charter for Compassion

#WEMATCH As Water Beings on a Water Planet

In 2020 we were honored to work with the MLK Manifesting the Dream for the Children and Youth Theme for WE, The World. The #WEMatch campaign was set up to promote, raise consciousness and support  our individual uniqueness, our acceptance of each other and our unity. 

In 2021 WE will launch the #WEMatch campaign in partnership again with International Children’s Month and shift our focus slightly to the thing we all share, Water. 

#WEMatch : As Water Beings on a Water Planet. 

2021 is also launching a World Water Law Campaign.

Interweaving Dr. Emoto’s Teachings, Water Stories with Grandmother Cross bear, and a social media campaign to promote #WEMatch we will support our social media communities to be active members in promoting inclusion, and healthy water, both as people and as a planet. 

ME TO WE GAME

  1. Invite our global community into circle (or the room post covid)
  2. Hands over heart utilizing Dr. Emoto’s teaching of cultivating as much joy as possible by remembering great times in our lives and filing ourselves up with joy.
  3. Let’s say to ourselves: I love me
  4. Remove hands from heart and extend out to the world (COVID Practicality) out to the left and out to the right ( post pandemic hand on person to the left’s shoulder hand on person to the right’s shoulder.)
  5. Gift your love through your left arm and hand out into your environment and through your right arm and hand out to your environment. Imagine you are placing your hand on your neighbors shoulder to the left and to the right of you.  (Post COVID left hand on the shoulder of the person next to you, right hand on the shoulder of the person next to you.
  6. Say I love WE
  7. Bring your hands back into your personal space and place left  hand  on your right shoulder and right hand on your left shoulder and say I love Me. 
  8. This is how we move from ME to WE: Co creating a world and world movement that works for all. 

Interweaving International Children’s Month Rainbow Circles

Building off of the pre covid understanding of circle work, and moving into COVID practicalities, WE and ICM will host a weekly “live” online series of circle work.

Other Action Steps

Volunteer and take action in your own life for peace, sustainability and transformation in a variety of ways, such as:

    • Save electricity by plugging appliances into a power strip and turning them off completely when not in use, including your computer.
    • Stop paper bank statements and pay your bills online or via mobile.
    • Share, don’t just like. If you see an interesting social media post about women’s rights or climate change, share it so folks in your network see it too.
    • Speak up! Ask your local and national authorities to engage in initiatives that don’t harm people or the planet. You can also voice your support for the Paris Agreement and ask your Local or State government to pass a Resolution in support of it if it hasn’t yet.
    • Turn off the lights. Your TV or computer screen provides a cosy glow, so turn off other lights if you don’t need them.
    • Report online bullies. If you notice harassment on a message board or in a chat room, flag that person.
    • Stay informed. Follow your local news and stay in touch with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals online or on social media at @GlobalGoalsUN.
    • Talk about your actions to achieve the 17 Global Goals by using the hashtag #globalgoals on social networks.
    • In addition to the above, offset your remaining carbon emissions! You can calculate your carbon footprint and purchase climate credits from Climate Neutral Now. In this way, you help reduce global emissions faster!
