Thinking Green together will be the new norm. 08. reshape our whole educational system to train the general public. 09. tap the creativity of local communities through public forums and collaborations. 10. act as a resource for their graduates who will coordinate the environmental campaigns. 11. slice the Gordian Knot of political gridlock in and among the world’s capitols. 12. regenerate the ideology of democracy throughout the world to mitigate the inequalities that govern our lives today.
