The children are our future is not only a popular refrain, it’s the literal truth. All our choices today determine the future we leave to the youngest among us, and those yet to come. The Iroquois Nation believed that each action should be judged by it’s effect on the seventh subsequent generation. Today we seem more inclined to borrow the prosperity of the future and leave behind nothing but an IOU.

The Net Positive path demands that we reconnect with our obligation to the younger generations alive today as well as those yet to come. To do this, we must first endeavor to understand their concerns and needs and then do our part to leave behind a world able to support not only their lives but also their dreams.

The Next Generation speaks here in the hopes that someone is still listening.
