Without a healthy earth, everything ends. And because it’s our only one, we seriously need to change our whole thinking. Coming from an era of individualism and capitalism, we need to be far more aware of the impact our decisions have on planet earth. This flag reminds us constantly we need to be thinking of the earth first.
The Blue Dot aims to be a unifying, non-political symbol of hope, for everyone who feels connected to this beautiful planet. For everyone who wants to help raising awareness and protect her in these transformative times.
There are many ways to act in tough times. The idea behind the flag is that we all need something to hold on to for support. Something that makes us realize we are not the only one with worries about the future. That we are in on this together. And that can help us to show we care. And act.
At the same time such a symbol also helps with bundling all of our own efforts. And when we join forces by waving this flag, it becomes greater than the sum of its parts. A growing stream of awareness will help to convince others to change their behaviour or rethink their acts and their effects on the wellbeing of this planet.
