Great societies are defined by their members’ relationship to the environment – how we treat each other, how we leave things (better than we found them), and how food, waste, and water are handled – are the foundational components of our own experiences and the incredible experiences we are able to create and share with others.
We must learn to balance human needs with the needs of the natural world, and view sustainability as more than an environmental gesture. Burning Man can be a testing ground for innovation that will change the world, and we can take the opportunity redefine our needs, nurture positive behaviors, and collaborate on alternative infrastructures. Each of us is a steward, a leader and an example for how to live consciously and create abundance. On this journey towards a sustainable future, Burning Man culture is a channel to spread regenerative practices and encourage mindful engagement with the wider world.
