Citizen Solution

"It's time to move from the incremental to the transformational" ~ Prof. Desta Mebratu Belay
November 2021


We will always be plagued by the truth that we had time to act in a planned, incremental way but we chose not to do it. With the limited success (read failure) of COP1 thru 26 we now know that we must move past planned, incremental change and into an era of moving quickly, acting decisively, and following the correct path.

“Ask for forgiveness, not permission.”
