How to Build Global Community Poster

This lovely poster offers an abundance of ideas that foster global cooperation amongst the peoples of the world. Perfect for home, classroom or office. The full text is as follows:

Think of no one as "them" • Don’t confuse your comfort with your safety • Talk to strangers • Imagine other cultures through their poetry and novels • Listen to music you don't understand • Dance to it • Act locally• Notice the workings of power and privilege in your culture • Question consumption • Know how your lettuce and coffee are grown: wake up and smell the exploitation • Look for fair trade and union labels • help build economies from the bottom up • Acquire few needs • Learn a second (or third) language • Visit people, places and cultures -- not tourist attractions • Learn people's history • Re-define progress • Know physical and political geography • Play games from other cultures • Watch films with subtitles • Know your heritage • Honor everyone's holidays • Look at the moon and imagine someone else, somewhere else, looking at it too • Read the UN's Universal Declaration of Human Rights • Understand the global economy in terms of people, land and water • Know where your bank banks • Never believe you have a right to anyone else's resources • Refuse to wear corporate logos: defy corporate domination • Question military/corporate connections • Don't confuse money with wealth, or time with money • Have a pen/email pal • Honor indigenous cultures • Judge governance by how well it meets all people's needs • Be skeptical about what you read • Eat adventurously • Enjoy vegetables, beans and grains in your diet • Choose curiosity over certainty • know where your water comes from and where your wastes go • Pledge allegiance to the earth: question nationalism • Think South, Central and North -- there are many Americans • Assume that many others share your dreams • Know that no one is silent though many are not heard • Work to change this
