The Common Agenda
Progress towards a future described by these Generational Goals — safe and healthy people; vibrant communities; green jobs and a green economy; restored and protected ecosystems; shared responsibility for environmental justice; a world at peace — depends on action in the near term by all of us in our personal and professional lives.
Turning the vision in this Common Agenda into a reality requires innovation, bold action and focus at international, national, state, and local levels. The 12 priority actions described here will not by themselves achieve the Generational Goals. Instead, they are concrete steps that together will begin to accomplish changes on the scale required for reversing environmental destruction and the burden of human disease.
