When we live for the dreams of Kindom of those around us, we live life as a gift because we live for (dedicate our lives to) their dream of freedom, truth, peace, joy, abundance, etc, just as they live for our Kindom dreams too. This is true co-creation (cooperation) with no attack on the uniqueness of each of us.

Campaign against Climate Change The Campaign against Climate Change brings people together to push for the urgent and resolute action we need to prevent the catastrophic destabilisation of global climate. Philosophy Here in the UK the CCC directed its campaigning efforts for many years against the Bush administration in the US because it was the biggest block on any kind of progress towards such an agreement. At the same time we recognise that the UK is amongst the world's richer and longest-industrialised countries whose high-consuming lifestyles and consequent high current and historical emissions of carbon dioxide are the major cause of climate change which will impact hardest and most immediately on the world's poorest and most vulnerable communities. History The Campaign against Climate Change essentially started with a demonstration in reaction to Bush's rejection of the Kyoto treaty - a definitive event in environmental politics - in Spring 2001.
