...

Unite!

What is to be done can only be done together. Indeed, nothing should deter us from building new bonds of solidarity, from uniting our struggles for planetary sustainability.

...

Replace!

(...system change...)

How do we break the ideological hegemony of capitalism?

What can replace the unequal exchange mechanisms of capitalism?

How do we turn global supply chains into planetary solidarity chains?

Why is the neighborhood perspective essential to sustainable human development?

How is radical democracy and radical creativity related to human needs?
