Danny Glover

Speaking about the importance of everyone's participation in creating the future

 

"By leadership of the whole, I mean participation on a far greater level than we every imagined ... That leadership has to be focused on some very radical ideas that only we as 21st Century people can talk about: making sure people have a livelihood, making sure people receive a living wage, making sure the environment, the Mother Earth, is embraced and cherished and not destroyed. Making sure people are healthy in what they eat, making sure we hold people and corporations accountable for the damage they do not only to our environment but to our institutions. This requires an enormous level of participation of the whole. I believe that the majority of the people on the planet aspire to these goals and all of us are going to have to participate in our own rescue."  - Danny Glover, actor and UNDP Goodwill Ambassador
