COP28, Dubai


COP28: something we can all do today to create a better world

If this moment in time comes to embody the maxim, it’s darkest before the dawn, as I believe it will, then it will be humanity’s inner light that will rise to illuminate the dawn skies.

“As consciousness about caring for ourselves, each other and the planet becomes more prevalent, there is an opportunity for humanity to drive change from the inside out,” Tammy Scarlett says, as we speak at COP28 in Dubai. Tammy is the executive director of UNIFY, a global nonprofit that is reaching over 100 million people a month with this message.

UNIFY holds the Guinness record for the largest global synchronised meditation for world peace and has millions of organic and active followers on social media engaging in “global action campaigns to move humanity forward”.

Asked for her #COPHalfFull sense of optimism about the future, she said: “I think there can be a realistic optimism. It’s part of how we work on goal setting, we see something that isn’t actualised yet and we move ourselves forward; by visualising it and believing it first, which could also be considered optimism, as the realistic path is not yet seen.”

She adds: “COP might be imperfect, messy, but in that way it’s also a representative of humanity: we are imperfect and messy.”
