The only thing blocking the transition out of the carbon age is investment not technology. No further technological advances need occur, although many will. We have the ability to do this right now. It is a question of will and intent.

As "pregnant" wise elders we create songs and strategies that "deliver" a healthier universe. The only thing blocking the transition out of the carbon age is investment not technology. No further technological advances need occur, although many will. We have the ability to do this right now. It is a question of will and intent.
Grannies all over the world are devoted to making a difference in this world of ours. We work for peace, social and economic justice and protection of this earth we call home. No small matter. Grannies are courageous elders who care passionately about the future of our global children and grandchild and all species living on Mother Earth.
We believe that singing helps to keep peoples spirits alive and makes clear to others why they are standing up against what is happening in their world and that they are not alone.
"Dare to declare who you are. It is not far from the shores of silence to the boundaries of speech. The path is not long, but the way is deep. You must not only walk there, you must be prepared to leap."
