The search for meaning is powerfulThe international Awakening the Dreamer movement is, like Transition, an organized approach to allowing communities to re-invent themselves in an energy-efficient, planet-protecting, and sustainable manner of living.  Emphais is placed on spiritual and emotional change as well, and this is particular to the Awakening the Dreamer effort. will be following up on a regular basis with more observations on this important topic.  From the Web site:


This is arguably the biggest story of our age; how tens of millions of people in millions of organisations around the world are recognizing that our current ways are dysfunctional. They are seeing sustainable, peaceful and just alternatives and standing up for their visions.  In many cases this means standing up to governments, corporations or the peer pressure that seeks to perpetuate our present worldview.

The movement embraces the work for human rights, for the protection of our environment, for access to education, healthcare, housing and even food and water. In another language these are: environmental sustainability, spiritual fulfillment and social justice.

About author/contributor Member: PT (David Alexander) PT (David Alexander)
   Web site:

Member: PT (David Alexander) In 2006 I started building the Web site to raise awareness of environmental issues, but I have been in the software field since 1978, working primarily on healthcare-related and not-for-profit organizations, but also for some general commercial companies. I have also long been a supporter of environmental causes.

I am an enthusiastic Tai Chi Chuan practitioner and teacher. This helps balance my brain after sitting at a screen for hours at a time, and lends some balance to life.

In early 2006 global warming and other environmental and energy challenges, as well as escalating wars in numerous locations, became central to my understanding of issues that our whole planet faces, and I wanted to do something with my skills to spread awareness and understanding of environment and energy issues, as well as discuss better philosophies of living, for greater satisfaction beyond consumerism.
