Share The World’s Resources (STWR) have published a book version of the ground-breaking text by Mohammed Mesbahi, which proposes a ‘people’s strategy for world transformation’ based on a massive mobilisation of civil society to end hunger and life-threatening poverty as an overriding international priority.
The following interview with STWR’s founder, Mohammed Mesbahi, examines both the contemporary political and profounder spiritual implications of sharing the world’s resources in relation to the escalating climate emergency.
A new report by leading sustainability experts has reaffirmed the case for a paradigm shift from industrial agriculture to diversified agroecological systems – fundamental to which is a call for redistributing power back into the hands of those who feed the world.
As part of STWR’s ‘global call for sharing’ campaign, we are periodically highlighting the growing public debate on the need for wealth, power and resources to be shared more equitably both within countries and internationally.
Unlike many politicians and business leaders, children as young as seven are quick to recognise that the principle of sharing holds the key to addressing pressing global issues such as poverty and inequality – and that governments should put these concerns at the very top of their agendas.
