Pull Together Now (PTN) catalyzes the well-being of all Peoples through transboundary collaboration. PTN programs transcend religious, social, ethnic and political barriers to accelerate the emergence of a civil society, in harmony with Mother Earth.
"In these prophetic times, where human beings are pushing the Earth Mother’s life support systems to the brink, it is imperative to do whatever is possible to elevate human consciousness. We must heal separation from self, from other and Mother Earth. This separation is the root cause for all the human dysfunctions that are destroying Mother Earth and ourselves.”
BELIEFS AND VALUES are reflected in the Earth Charter:
The mission of the Earth Charter Initiative is to promote the transition to sustainable ways of living and a global society founded on a shared ethical framework that includes respect and care for the community of life, ecological integrity, universal human rights, respect for diversity, economic justice, democracy, and a culture of peace.” www.earthcharterinaction.org
Mindful of our shared humanity, PTN nurtures alliances and fosters trust and collaboration through public forums, special events, and innovative projects. Place to place, face to face, we are forging practical, resilient paradigms for ourselves and future generations. Together we answer this call to action from the Indigenous Peoples of the World, narrated by Chief Oren R. Lyons, Faithkeeper -Turtle Clan, Onondaga Nation, Haudenosaunee:
Dr. Steve Running, Climate Scientist and co-recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize 2007, “…it is clear that now the most important activities are grassroots efforts like Pull Together Now to organize the public, and teach the politicians that the majority of us want new leadership and policy on energy and the climate.”
