Sector 9: Infrastructure & Resources

The Infrastructure & Resources Sector focuses on urban, suburban, and rural landscapes, homescapes, facilities, and byways. This Sector develops our neighborhoods and builds our homes, incorporating novel ideas like “tiny houses.” This Sector also designs and maintains the “Commons,” the open and public space we all enjoy. From an holistic standpoint, architects and engineers of the New World now consider the five classic elements during their design process: solar (fire); hydro (water); wind (air); geothermal (earth); and the needs/realities of the surrounding environment, including green, recycled, and affordable materials (spirit).

Sep 11, 2017 to Sep 21, 2017 11 Days of Global Unity

When you get right down to it, as a human race we have what it takes to transform our world. We have the will, the intelligence, the resources, the heart and the leaders to address and heal the areas of our planet that need it most...

There are brilliant changemakers all over the globe making meaningful progress on critical issues — the environment, health, human rights, women’s issues, economic justice and peace, to name a few.

So what’s keeping us from achieving global transformation?

The fragmentation of changemakers around the world — like environmentalists, human rights advocates and healthcare workers, each working in their own silos.

We’re being called to work in collaboration and partnership like never before, to create the comprehensive changes we need... for a world that works for all.

The 11 Days of Global Unity summit, taking place September 11-21, bridges these gaps by connecting and promoting agents for change who are working within each of the identified “themes” — such as Environment, Health, Human Rights and Peace — to create a comprehensive blueprint for global transformation.

11 Days of Global Unity, produced by The Shift Network in partnership with We, The World, has become a worldwide platform, linking changemakers and their awareness and action campaigns to an inspiring global movement for the promotion of peace, justice, sustainability and transformation.
