‘What kind of society is it that would not place the Childeren’s Fire at the very center of all its institutions of power?’,
is a question posed in a profound talk given by founder and CEO of Embercombe, Tim Macartney on the role of our collective as well as individual choices. He shares a timeless message on the human condition and the way we lead our society. Until we place the childeren’s fire at the very center, we will continue to see the destruction of our earth. But is this gloomy?
As he himself says: ‘I don’t think so. It is just a call to the brave and it speaks to each single one of you. And it speaks to me.’

▶ Pale Blue dot
by Carl Sagan
'Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives.'
As an acknowledged scientist and prolific writer on astronomy and astrophysics, Sagan gives an eye opening as well as a humbling view on the ‘Pale Blue Dot’ – a beautiful narration about the planet we all inhabit.
