EVOLUTIONARY ROUND TABLE AT THE UNITED NATIONS
Gregg Braden and Bruce Lipton address “Creating Resilience in a Time of Extremes” at event hosted by the UN Interagency Task Force on Engaging with FBOs for Development and the Interagency Framework Team on Preventive Action
The Evolutionary Leaders followed up on their June gathering at the United Nations with an Evolutionary Round Table on October 29, 2013.
Bruce Lipton and Gregg Braden are both distinguished scientists, best-selling authors and Evolutionary Leaders. They joined with esteemed members of the United Nations community to offer new perspectives on science and society that can radically shift our approach to the challenges facing our world today.
Gay Rosenblum-Kumar hosted the event as part of a series of “brown bag lunches” by the Interagency Framework Team on Preventive Action on innovative approaches to issues facing UN staff members in their work at headquarters and around the world. Azza Karam, Senior Advisor on Culture at the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and chair of the UN Inter-Agency Task Force on Faith-Based Organization partners on the MDGs and development, facilitated a dialogue with members of the UN community from various departments and agencies, including UNDP, UNEP, UN DESA, and the Office of the Secretary-General, along with NGOs and media.
Gregg addressed creating resilience to prepare us for the unprecedented change that lies ahead. The reality of climate change will necessitate learning to adapt to new norms, letting go of old beliefs to shape a new way of life for a world that has yet to unfold. The technologies required are already available – for energy, food production, etc. Gregg offered examples of local communities around the world that are leading the way.
Bruce stated that we are literally transforming into a new species at this time. He noted that the United Nations brings people together in projects to share new ways of behavior. But we must learn how to rewrite the limiting beliefs that have been passed on for hundreds of years so that the new ways can flourish. We can create a brilliant, dazzling world for us to live in, a world of heaven on Earth.
Look for future Evolutionary Round Tables at the United Nations and other places of influence.

Sustainable Development – What Are Your Priorities?
The Evolutionary Leaders circle invites YOU to get involved in choosing the priorities to be addressed over the coming years by participating in the MY World global survey for citizens led by the United Nations and partners.
MY World asks individuals which six of sixteen issues they think would make the most difference to their lives. The issues, which have been determined from the priorities expressed by poor people in research and polling, cover the Millennium Development Goals, plus sustainability, security, governance and transparency.
From now until 2015, people of all ages, genders, and backgrounds in as many countries as possible will take part in MY World. Results will be shared with the Secretary General and global leaders as they prepare the next development agenda in the run-up to 2015.
