Global warming, peak oil, deforestation...

We are not going to change our downward trajectory by recycling our cans, setting a personal example, or even by being activists. A clean break is required, something utterly independent of the existing status quo.

It is going to start with the young generation if it is going to happen at all.

I want to share with you word of a unique gap year program that just got launched: Trailblazers Training Program www.worldtrailblazers.net .  It is a yearlong intensive gap program for people ages 17, 18, training the young adults to become global leaders expressly primed to tackle the planetary issues that plaguing our world. It is a genuine and deliberate attempt to change our collective trajectory and pull us away from an ecological and economic brink.

If you know anyone at that age or anyone who might be interested, please, share this link.

Wow it looks fantastic - my neice worked on a conservative project with i-to-i in Ecuador on here gap year (this one here - http://www.i-to-i.com/volunteer-projects/amazon-rainforest-preservation.html?utm_source=gapyear_com-profile&utm_medium=affiliate&utm_campaign=tpp_gapyear_com_itoi_consrainpreservation) and I thought that was fantastic. However, it doesn't look quite as inense or comprehensive as the trail blazers one. If only there were more of these!

The Trailblazers video seems to be gone, but I'll check out the website.  But it looks like there is a video on vimeo that is on their site.
