The Common Home of Humanity proposes an ambitious new global pact for the environment. This proposal's cascading effects could be systemic and will assuredly produce huge impacts on international relations, economics, and open the doors to restoring a well-functioning Earth System. Common Home Conversations is the place to discuss a new social contract between society, economy, and the Earth System.
