At one time it was the elders that were respected and listened to for their wisdom. Their life experience allows them to view and understand life in ways that younger people cannot.
This group of worldwide elders comprised of international leaders like Jimmy Carter, Desmond Tutu, Ela Bhatt, and Mary Robinson. All leaders in human rights with a focus to create a peaceful world using their global experiences as planetary elders.
This video shows a recent meeting in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil where they met with concerned youth of this rapidly developing country. The young people they met insisted that this growth must be sustainable – not only in terms of environmental impact of development, but also its social impact.
Watch this video and visit their website – support our global elders (http://www.theelders.org) who are here to share and use their wisdom to help our planet:
We are grateful for The Elders,
