Terraforming (”Earth‐shaping”) is a term from astronomy, defining the theoretical process of deliberately modifying the atmosphere, temperature or topography of a new planet, to make it habitable by humans.
But before we start changing other planets, we believe that it is our World that needs to be “terraformed” first, making it a better place, with more empathy and love, with genuine respect for human rights, equality and freedom.
We are trying to give our small contribution to that kind of "terraforming" of our World.
