Community Humanity has experienced many designs of what community means. At the present time, it appears the model that has evolved is no longer working. From individual family communities to the larger world community, people are bickering, warring and destroying the earth and their own people. It seems whatever idea we have concerning community; it’s time for a change. Community comes from the word ‘commune’, whose definition is “to talk together intimately,” or “a small group of persons living together and sharing possessions, work, income, etc.”, according to Webster’s American Family Dictionary. Our creativity has opened up the world as our community. International trade and travel, the internet, cell phones and satellites have brought us together in ways we sometimes regret instead of enjoy. Watching war live on a big screen and using cell phones in war strategies is not natural or furthering for our race. The time is right to realize if we don’t work and live as a world community, “sharing possessions, work, income, etc.” there may be no world or people

left. Each of us can choose to figure out how to share on the planet. If we begin with our own lives and what we enjoy doing the most, that is what to share. Cooking, carpentry, computers, chemistry, company, even consciousness…giving something of ourselves builds a sense of community in the hearts of the giver and receiver. That’s what sharing is. Sharing doesn’t mean we lose our power or our ability to own things. When we share, we simply give something to nourish the spirit of another. If we are all one spirit, one unity, including all life anywhere, then why wouldn’t we choose to share everything, moving the entire universe forward with our gifts? In order for the world community we have created to survive, a major shift must take place in each heart of each spirit on the planet. Each of us can choose to be a significant participant in changing the model of community that isn’t working. Share something every day with someone and talk together intimately, in every conversation. We are part of the same world community now.

EARTH TALK

From the Editors of E/The Environmental Magazine

What are some ways environmentalists are using social media to further their causes? - Sam Baskin, Tullahoma, TN Environmental advocates and organizations have embraced the revolution in online networking in no small way to raise awareness about climate change and the need for conservation of wild lands and animals— and to generate support for specific campaigns and the green movement in general. Perhaps the most immediate way social media help the cause is via the mountaintop selfie. For many of us, a trip into the wilderness isn’t complete without a public post to announce our whereabouts. At the University of Vermont, researchers are using geo-tagged photos on social media to study the use and relative popularity of different parks and even specific trails. New tracking capabilities of personal technology also record real time statistics that can be used as a crucial defense of public parks. Social media has also been repurposed for environmental activism in several ways. Advocacy organizations are able to widely disseminate their messages through different social media platforms. By delivering their messages in a short, dynamic format, these groups are able to reach a wide consumer base. However, it’s difficult to assess the long-term engagement resulting from these messages. Nevertheless, larger environmental groups have hundreds of thousands of online fans that drink up every post and call-to-action. For instance, the Sierra Club has some 625,000 “likes” on Facebook and more than 200,000 “followers” on Twitter. A number of environmental campaigns have

used social media to apply key pressure on polluters, including the Greenpeace anti-Arctic drilling campaign. Groups have used disturbing videos and touching images alike to garner large-scale public support. And social media isn’t just for the large, well-heeled groups. Individuals are using social media to similar ends, telling their stories and drumming up sympathy and support. Communities that are suffering particular environmental damages are able to tell their stories on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media platforms, helping to humanize the issues. For example, victims of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill posted about the environmental effects of the accident on Facebook and Twitter. Social media platforms also effectively connect these stories to larger issues through the use of hashtags. This includes a recent movement nationwide to reach Donald Trump through his daughter, Ivanka, whom the President-elect stated he leans on for advice. The #DearIvanka campaign on Twitter allows individuals to raise their concerns about a number of proposed policy changes, including environmental deregulation and nominated officials. One such tweet read “@ IvankaTrump Please work with your father to respect the environment. Our children’s future is at stake. #dearivanka #greenpeace.” “Social media has become an important tool for providing a space and means for the public to participate in influencing or disallowing environmental decisions historically made by governments and corporations that affect us all,” says Public Lab co-founder Shannon Dosemagen. “It has created a way for people to connect local environmental challenges and solutions to larger-scale narratives that will affect us as a global community.”
