NEW MOVEMENT FOR SURVIVAL
Reasoned persuasion on the basis of scientific evidence is not enough to result in effective change of individuals or governments.
Other motives and values drive them, and have to be brought to the surface of awareness for re-evaluation, in order for behavioural change to be sustainable.
The predominent Western ideology of economic growth, consumerism and exploitation of human and natural resources, is the main driver of behaviour causing both climate change and all the other current threats to survival.
The New Movement for Survival proposes an alternative, all-inclusive global ideology aimed to ‘Value Life Itself Above All Else’.
The Movement will appeal to those already persuaded and then snowball out to draw in as many other people as possible, and so reach a critical mass of influence on both individuals and governments, working in coalition with all likeminded groups.

... AND BACKGROUND ARGUMENTS
are also on the web-site link, along with the origin of the New Movement.
I pledge to Value Life Itself above everything else, including individual self-interest, and to adjust my lifestyle in order to do so, as well as to take collective action in order to uphold this value.
