The words “One World Renaissance” refer to our absolute human need to create a renaissance for the 21st Century. The ways that we have been living during the modern era, and the ways we have organized our world, are a failure. This failure was underlined by two gigantic world wars during the 20th century as well as the threat of total nuclear holocaust that emerged during the 1950s and has been with us ever since.
This same failure of how we have been living and organizing our world is now doubly underlined by the emerging climate crisis in which our world is literally disintegrating all around us with massive, unprecedented flooding, wildfires, super-storms, droughts, melting of the ice caps, and general disruption of Holocene era stability. Today, we are not only clearly in the Anthropocene. Human actions and institutions have clearly created the climate crisis but do not appear capable of addressing that crisis.
Addressing that crisis will require total change, fundamental transformation of both our ways of living and in our dominant global institutions. This website, in all its dimensions, is about these fundamental moral, spiritual, and institutional transformations. If you wish to do so, you can find out here much about what we need to be doing and where we need to be going. We need a truly fundamental renaissance, and it must be global. It must embrace the entire world.

Here you will also find a great deal of information about my lifetime work as a philosopher, educator, traveler, peace activist, and leader of the Earth Federation Movement. Many of my articles are found on the blog section, photos of international travel in the Photo Galleries section, and much information about the World Constitution and Parliament Association (WCPA), the Earth Federation Institute (EFI), the Provisional World Parliament (PWP), and the World Parliament University (WPU) under these tabs. My eleven books are also featured on this website. Take your time, reflect thoughtfully on what you find, and from it perhaps glean how you can become, in your own way, a world citizen working on behalf of the future of humanity and our precious planet Earth.
