The Conscious World exists as a collaborative response to the terrifying disasters facing people, animals, and the planet we live on. Community members contribute knowledge and empathy to the task of building holistic, collaborative solutions based in solidarity between people who care about out the interconnected world we live in.
Perspective and specialized expertise are shared from those with relevant experience--whether that be from life, studies/research, work, or community involvement. Feature articles, photography, art, performance, and poetry comment on local, national, and international events contrast the perspectives of activists and experts with an avoidance of click-bait, fear-mongering sensationalism. The goal is to not give more attention (and power) to ignorance than to the responses given by those who truly care about protecting and enriching life for sentient beings on this planet.
