We can’t afford war, we never could

Are you ready to go to war? Are you ready to send your children or grandchildren to war?


Then we must rise up and make sure our leaders know the escalating violence across our world cannot continue – we must have peace.

There is more war and conflict today than prior to World War Two. We are on the cusp of devastation.

Our leaders must pursue diplomacy, apply wisdom, and exhibit the strongest desire for peace. For those filled with battle lust, they must lose their power today.

We can’t afford war, we never could.

War today will guarantee the end of human civilisation. It will accelerate the breakdown of our natural world and send all of us into chaos.

We are already close to destroying the stability and resilience of the earth system, war will ensure we cross that line permanently.

We cannot afford war, we never could.

Do not be silent. Stand up and demand your leaders fight for peace.

If war continues to escalate – which experts predict it will – there is no chance humanity can overcome the multiple crisis’ we face – none.

The cost of war is too high

Fight for peace.

Fight for a living future for all life on this planet, yours included.

We’re close to the edge now, and it’s up to all of us to stop the madness. Don’t be silent.

I don’t want to send my children to war, do you?

War must end.

Humanity must rise.

We must do all we can to ensure peace.



Uncommon Courage, an invitation

Uncommon Courage is an invitation to be your courageous best self every day. It’s also an antidote to the overwhelm, fear, and rage rolling around the world. But it’s more than a book; it’s an invitation to join an inclusive community that wants to better understand humanities challenges – both global and personal – in order to take courageous action and create a better world for everyone. If Covid19 gave us the time and space to reflect, Uncommon Courage gives us the nudge we need to create lasting change.
