WHY HOME FOR HUMANITY?:

"The journey of our time is the journey of education and action toward a just, humane, sustainable, and peaceful world. Only through transformative environmental education do we have hope of such a future. One Home Journey provides such hope. Its foundation for success is a focus on Earth literacy and the strength of its decentralized partnerships for co-learning.

I am honored to journey in spirit with this imaginative and joyous initiative."
