The Upshift Movement

People at the Leading Edge

NOW is the time to change the world—now as we emerge from the crises triggered by an aggressive virus, an aggressive political leader, and the irresponsible ravaging of the ecology of the planet. These are crises that shake the world, and they open the way to a new world. ( Dr. Ervin Laszlo )

The Upshift Movement

Now we can build a new world. The challenge is to make the new world a better world. To help humankind mobilize its powers to meet this epochal challenge is the objective and the mission of THE UPSHIFT MOVEMENT.

THE CALL TO WISER LIVING ON PLANET EARTH

The Upshift Movement is a better-world-promoting initiative launched by Ervin Laszlo and the Laszlo Institute of New Paradigm Research. We invite you to join the Movement and to join the cause for a better world by pledging your commitment to wiser living on our home planet.

What is the Upshift Movement?

The Upshift Movement is a grass-roots based international and intercultural movement dedicated to building a better world.

Why you should join the movement?

As a conscious member of the human community, you are intellectually and morally disposed to find more peaceful and sustainable ways of living on this planet.

About The Upshift Movement

An important insight is dawning. Crisis is not only danger; it is also opportunity. At the present time, it is the opportunity to shift to a different world. The challenge is to make that world better than the world we now have. We must mobilize our powers of insight and determination to respond to this challenge. The fundamental objective and historic mission of the Upshift Movement is to create the critical mass that makes our emerging from the depth of the crisis the first step toward a better world: the beginning of a true and lasting upshift of humanity.

The Upshift Movement is a grass-roots based international and intercultural initiative launched by Ervin Laszlo and the Laszlo Institute. The operative principle of the Movement is that a better world is built when people seek wiser ways to live and to act—and when the wiser ways they seek are not prescribed by an external authority but come from their own heart and inspiration. The Upshift Movement invites awakened and responsible people to discover and embrace the wiser ways you and I and all people in the human family can live on this planet.

JOIN THE MOVEMENT

The Upshift Movement aspires to bring together the kind of group of dedicated people anthropologist Margaret Mead had in mind when she said ‘Never to doubt the power of a small group of people to change the world’. The Upshift Movement invites you, a conscious and responsible member of the human community, to be an active part of that group.

The Upshift Movement is a shared enterprise of the human community at this critical juncture of its history. It is a cooperation-based undertaking of conscious and ethical people and not the privileged domain or intellectual property of any individual or group of individuals.

By joining the Upshift Movement you can play your part in helping to create a more peaceful, humane, and sustainable world.

HOW CAN I JOIN?

Joining is simple and yet informative and important. Sign up with your name, email and country. Add a short — a few paragraph or even a one-page — message in which you outline your own idea of wiser living. What kind of living is wise for people to adopt today? The basic elements of such living are evident: it is peaceful and sustainable, it does not create rifts and conflict among people, and it does not damage nature. What is wiser living, then, in positive terms?

Do you believe in the importance of adopting wiser living in today’s world, and can you pledge your commitment to follow it? Your thoughts regarding the nature of wiser living and your commitment to it can qualify you to join the Upshift Movement as a full and active Member.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I JOIN?

We will review your response to our Call: the ideas and projects for wiser living to which you pledge commitment. We will bring you together with people with similar or complementary ideas and commitments. (Should we need further information, we will come back to you with our questions.)

When we have established the nature and validity of your ideas and projects, we will enter your name in the appropriate category and confirm your membership in the Movement. To welcome you to the Movement, we will send you an informative e-booklet with our compliments. These steps will enable us to live up to the Movement’s mandate by forming groups of committed people who can and intend to pursue collaborative projects aimed at furthering effective initiatives of local or global upshift.
