About David

I consider myself a Global Citizen rather than a citizen of any particular tribe or nation. As such, I feel that I need to be aware and concerned of global issues as well as provincial issues.

Global problems need Global solutions that will not come from any one sector – business, government, civic, educational or individual. Solutions must come from collaborative efforts beginning with common understandings. It's important to identify these global issues, to analyze them, to understand and appreciate how different international organizations, NGOs, countries, and individuals are addressing these issues.

My goal is to promote Sustainability for businesses, the environment, and people so that our planet and societies will be just as viable (or more so) 50 years from now as they are today. It’s a Wonderful World, and I want to keep it that way.

This website serves to communicate the wisdom and understandings that I have encountered in Sustainability for businesses, the environment, and all people to anyone who wishes to be informed or who is concerned about Sustainability on a Global level.
