The arrogance and immorality of this system has killed hundreds of millions, and left the rest in utter destruction, sickness and pain. Our bad actions, and inactions to prevent such happenings, have pushed our survival to near extinction. Now, as the world’s natural resources are depleted and there is a worldwide food and energy scarcity, and climate change has turned into unprecedented natural disasters very soon making planet Earth uninhabitable; change is no longer an option for discussion – but a necessity for immediate action. The Red Alarm is sounding loud as we have almost reached the point of no return to reverse climate change and mass extinction of animals and ecosystems, to save and secure current and future survival.
The situation is very real! The situation is very urgent!
The many health, societal and environmental crises that stand before us are man-made. They are the outcome of human practice and business. This implies the control is in our hands. All we need is to change the way we practice our lives: from over-production and mass-consumption, to a sustainable and holistic model that fits with our human nature and natural planet.
The new era of civilization is upon us – of abundance, equality, wellbeing and happiness for every one of us, no matter the place you live in. An era of joy, green forests and clear blue oceans, instead of today's anxiety over one’s existence, clear cut woods, killed ecosystems, polluted air and plastic-filled dead seas. […]

Health is a personal interest, a subjective cause that's participated. Health is made up by factors that interconnect every single issue; such as food and agriculture, socioeconomic system and leisure time and stress, energy and politics, environment and ecosystem diversity.
Person-centered: self-leadership, self-governance (self-regulation and control is key for a mature and ordered society).
Health is made up by dietary and lifestyle factors, i.e. life factors.
Self-Governed Health = Self-Governed Life
The Next Life System: EcoSystema
Regenerative Whole Systems Design: Life-Centered
Reorganizing and Restructuring to Meet Everyone’s Basic Needs: Health
Educating, Empowering, Liberating the Individual: Individuality
