Climate change, the pandemic, and our human-centric lifestyles, are exacerbating poverty, social inequities, world hunger, and ecosystem collapse. Climate refugees, losses in biodiversity and wildlife habitat all continue to mount. According to the U.N. Agency, World Food Programme, as of November 2021, 45 million people in 43 countries are on the verge of famine, up from 27 million two years ago. For many of us, regardless of where we live, access to clean air, water, food, soil, and shelter are not guaranteed. It is as sobering a time as it is one of great promise and potentiality.
