180 Forward is a plea. A hope. A blog. An experiment. An outlet. And hopefully, a Movement
The concept is simple: We cannot go back. Only forward. But we must do so with a new ecological paradigm. An ecological paradigm which places our global worldview as integrated with the natural world. We are not separate from the ecology which surrounds us. We are part of it in every way and must act like it or, lets face it, we might not be here much longer.
I would love for 180 forward to expand to include anyone who wants a voice. Please contribute. Write an article and send it to me. I’ll post it. Send me videos, music, pictures. Or just comment on what’s here. So, if you like this concept, hop on board.
And, Yes, although the concept for 180 Forward has been roasting for years, the name is partially inspired by the movie 180South. If you haven’t seen it yet, you need to. Check out the trailer here. Or full movie here.
This is a simple beginning for 180 Forward. We’ll see what it evolves into.
