The Biosensitive Futures project is based on our conviction that the survival of civilisation and the wellbeing of humankind in the future will depend on a wave of new understanding spreading across the dominant cultures of the world, leading to profound changes in the way human societies operate. By new understanding we mean understanding the story of life on Earth and how humankind fits into this story. We call this biounderstanding.
The project aims to contribute to necessary social change by spreading biounderstanding and encouraging informed discussion and debate about how best to achieve an effective transition to a society that is truly in tune with, sensitive to and respectful of the processes of life. We call this a biosensitive society.
