Stand up for earth

There is no Planet B

Daniel-K-Swan-Drawing-Street-Chalk-Art-I

A few years ago, I was drawing baby leopards on the streets of London, hoping to inspire passers by to look beyond the world and think about nature.

 

The simple truth is that the world of today needs to change, or else we will face the consequences of letting it continue as it is.

 

Most of the people I meet know the world is both unjust and destructive, but few realise just how unsustainable it now is or that

 we have a limited time to change it.

The unsustainable world destroys the life of the Earth, so a few make money.

Natural ecosystems are now nearing collapse, and we are losing hundreds of species every single day. Why are we still accepting this?

 

The whole problem is the corporate driven economic and government system. Unless we stand together and change this, it will soon be too late.

To protect nature we need to unite.

To evolve as loving people,

and be freed by truth;

We are all one.

There are a lot of problems in the world,

all of which come from ignorance to the truth.

I know we can create a better shared reality together,

but the time is running out for us to collectively transform.

 

If you can hear this message, please read on.

There is a better way to live here,

both individually and as one people collectively.

 

After speaking with thousands of people over several years

creating street art,

I have learned that there are

many other people

who feel like this.

Like those people, I want humanity and Nature to thrive. My dream is for a world where animals, like the Leopard, are safe and secure beside many other species and happy, healthy people live in harmony with nature.

One Human Tribe

Daniel Swan Leopard Painting Street Traf

For most of human history human beings have lived tribally.

We worked together in harmony with the nature and people around us for many thousands upon thousands of years. There was no system of control, nor any private ownership or debt. There was no industry of war, no refugee crisis, no famine in Yemen, no homelessness or mass media.

People lived freely, in many tribes, all across the Earth.  

Relatively recently centralised systems of power emerged worldwide.

This is not normal and has never ended well.

Never, in all of human history.

It always brings us pain.

It's time to wake up from that and return as free people to nature.

We can come together as a single tribe again,

One great human tribe. Beyond all systems and centralisation.

One Tribe regenerating nature to let humanity, animals & ecosystems thrive.

It has been our reality before; It can become our way once more.

Save Our Planet Smaller NEw.jpg

You may have seen children stand up together in the streets to protest,

millions worldwide, but are you aware of what they're standing for? 

The image below is just one example of what they are protesting to end.

To save this planet from ecological destruction, where many thousands of lifeforms are killed. Corporations do this, threatening all life on Earth today;

Just to make more money. We have to stop it; soon.

Mining smaller.jpg

This is what our children are against. Entire ecosystems destroyed for money.

While brave children have been trying to save a whole planet, 

Many adults are working for the systems that destroy it. 

They are asking us to act now; How will you answer?

Will you just let this happen without a fight?

Living souls will not simply watch.

The animals & Earth need us to stand up.

I am going to stand with them. 

I hope you will too.

Ancient Native Elders

Street Artist Native American Painting M

Native American people lived in harmony with nature. Their tribes were sustainable and naturally balanced with local ecology. They lived peacefully across the Americas for many thousands of years, hardly leaving a trace of their presence since it was beautifully natural. 

Spoke of One Loving Tribe

Greed and blindness are causing ecological breakdown; 

Indifference to this injustice is what continually allows it.

Daniel Swan Street Art in London Trafalg

Due to both wilful ignorance and mass media that divides us, Many human beings have forgotten the truth; we are all ultimately one tribe.

We can choose to live in harmony with nature again.

 

All those who love belong to one eternal tribe. It is time for that one loving tribe to awaken and act. 

Regardless of how hard it is.

Coming Together

Street Art Tribal Portrait by Daniel K S

With Shared Perception

We all have a different way of seeing things. We all have a different experience of life. What we share in common is the planet we all depend upon.

Some can see as pure being, consciousness and awareness.

The inner light of life, beyond all conceptual ideas of the mind.

Beyond all sensations of space and time, the experiential dimensions of our body, exists our spiritual self.

 

Spiritually We are all connected.

We are one.

A Creative Living Universe

Though many dimensions may seem to divide us today, we are still one.

However you believe the universe came into being, it is all one. Everything that is, ever was or will be, all of space and all of time, came from one source.

Though the universe expanded from what physics calls the "singularity", 

it is all ultimately still one. We, yourself and I, are one.

When you realise this, it changes everything.

The Universal Truth of Love

Huge-3D-Chalk-and-Pastel-Art-Mural-Portr

The universal truth of love, oneness and unity is a foundational principle

by which I try to live my life. This leads me to care for all nature and humanity.

 

Many today are discovering the life giving spirit within, and a growing awareness is calling us all into harmony; The spirit of all truth, peace & love.

Protect Mother Nature

Enlightenment Street Art by Daniel Swan

The world is hurting mother nature so a few can take money from many.

How is it possible that a few destroy Earth only to sell it back to us?

Many species are now highly endangered, like Amur Leopard's for example;

of which there are less than one hundred remaining.

We can change this reality, but it requires a global awakening.

I want to inspire and accelerate positive evolution on Earth,

this is why I create and draw all over the streets.

Quite a few beautiful people notice this,

they care for nature & its beauty.

They too want nature protected,

 

If we all join together,

We can make a huge difference.

We can save many endangered species,

like the Amur Leopard, just by joining together as one.

The Leopard is absolute Beauty.

 Leopards are among the most powerful, intelligent and stunning creatures on Earth. They embody natural beauty.

To watch a Leopard move through the forest is an unforgettable gift.

Nothing I have seen in nature moves with such grace.

The Leopard is absolute beauty.

We only find those that wish to be found

Leopard Study Web.jpg

The leopard is master of stealth. We only find those that wish to be found. 

Adorned with grace,

poise, balance and power, the moment you see one all time

becomes still. 

A great being like a Leopard  demands respect and admiration. 

The Moment You See ONE All Time becomes Still

Perfect Balance

Before you ever find a Leopard you will be studied and watched.

A Leopard sees you before you ever notice them.

 They reveal themselves only by choice.

Leopard Tree Small.jpg

I have never seen anything move with such elegance and power.

As I knelt to take this photograph I was in awe of the

beauty before me. The Leopard is a perfect living artwork in so many ways; I see divinity in their form, spirit and movement.

 

Immediately after I took the shot he turned

and launched himself 30 foot up into a tree.

Such raw, effortless, incredible motion. I was astounded to see how powerful this Leopard was. A true honour to witness.

 

I have never seen anything move with such elegance and power.

An Honour to Witness

The Leopard is one of

nature's great forms.

 

It is a blessing to simply be near to one.

When looking at these beings I see creation's perfection.

I am sure they can feel my complete admiration.

 

Behind their beautiful eyes

is a raw living spirit. 

 

The leopard is truly a miracle.

Almost Completely Gone

Despite being perfectly designed the beautiful Leopard is endangered.

Some species, like Amur Leopard's, are now almost completely gone.

Fight Against Manmade Extinction

There are people fighting valiantly to protect these species, like Shatrunjay Pratap Singh, who dedicated his life to protecting Indian Wildlife and even stopped government sanctioned mining from destroying one of the

last thriving Leopard habitats on Earth.

Another amazing human being, Jadav Payeng, started planting trees along the river when he was just 16 years old. By continually planting over 35 years they have now grown into a 1360 acre forrest teeming with wildlife;

including Elephants, Deer and Tigers.

These are the fruits of just a few dedicated lives.

Imagine if millions of people decided themselves to walk the same way.

We could save all of Nature.

Some beautiful souls do incredible things against great odds for the preservation of Mother Nature, but they are heavily outnumbered by corporate money and its servants. We need so many more to stand up for Earth now and join the fight against destruction. By raising awareness and getting involved ourselves, we can all come together to save life on this planet today and for future generations.

"Over half of all animal species are now in decline."

In the past few decades, habitat destruction and poaching has caused Leopard populations to dramatically decrease  - by over 80%.

 

Because of human activity many animals are endangered. 

 

Over half of animal species are now in decline.

Many species on Earth are

now facing extinction.

This is all caused by corporate enabled actions -

A hidden, for profit, manmade extinction

Save Nature for Future Generations

When those who care for these animals work together as one they can have an enormous impact, such as increasing tiger populations due to conservation efforts in India, or the beginning of the first ever snow leopard conservation project in the country last year. These excellent projects are still very limited and in need of increased public support to succeed.

Save Nature for Future Generations

All the big cats of India are under threat due to fragmented forests and rapidly disappearing habitat chopped down in the name of unsustainable development.

We need to start protecting not only the remaining natural animal habitat but also working to replant and repopulate it - work which will take global support. 

Huge Conservation Success

One of the greatest recent success stories for conservation was the creation of the major 650,000 acre "Land of the Leopard" National Park in Russia, which covers

60% of all the highly endangered Amur Leopards' natural habitat.

 

Only through major increased awareness can we truly save endangered species.

We can still protect nature from destructive & unsustainable systems.

"Be magnificent as the leopard, fight to win."

- Rumi

Only 70 Left

The Amur Leopard is one of the most endangered species on Earth.

 

It is believed that there are just 70 of

these beautiful beings left living wild.

70.

 

Only 70 wild Amur Leopards.

How can this happen unnoticed?

Because those who harm earth have great influence over mass media.

They do not allow stories like this to be broadcast through mass media. and continually manipulate people with unconscious content or

fear based media:

all misdirection.

Forestry, unsustainable agriculture, Chemical Use and Mining are the most destructive industries of all to the habitat of animals

like the Leopard.

 

Because of unsustainable industry there are now so few safe spaces for animals left that we are completely losing hundreds of species 

every day. 

Because of massive ignorance, corporate greed and irresponsible

 humans, 67% of all animal species on planet Earth are now in decline.

Protecting Keystone Species

Certain species in an ecosystem have a tremendous impact upon the others in a local, or even global, ecology.

These species are known as "keystone" species.

The loss of habitat or keystone species can cause

sudden collapse of entire ecosystems

The loss of trees or keystone species can cause sudden collapse of entire ecosystems. Particularly when these species, like Leopard's, keep human beings off the land. For nature to recover

we must protect keystone species and their habitat.

For nature to recover we must protect keystone species

Unsustainable Industry Destroys this Planet

"Every year about 18 million hectares of forest –

67% of all animal species on planet Earth are now in decline.

Guardian Small Website.jpg

We still have time to save these beautiful animals, but it is now or never.

We either stand up for Earth, nature and all lifeforms; or we fail them.

 

It is that simple.


Standing for and protecting Earth

means standing up to and replacing unsustainable agriculture and industry. 

Choose to Save Nature

We do not have to be a part of this destruction.

We can choose instead to create and support alternatives to it.

We can simply choose to save nature, protect Earth and become sustainable.

Enough of destruction. We can choose to regenerate.

 

Let us make this choice now.

Taking the Bridge S.jpg

We either stand up for our future,

nature and all life on Earth; or we accept mass extinction

The moment captured above is one of my most treasured of memories.

To go before these young warriors onto London's Lambeth bridge was one of many peaceful actions that have raised awareness through civil disobedience.

 

Thanks to simple actions like this, where we stand up for Earth,

today almost everyone has heard of the "climate emergency".

Some are even now aware that we face ecological collapse. 

This is all thanks to visible protests and grass roots activism. 

If it were not for such actions the world would be much less conscious.

I am asking all who care now to join together for regeneration.

We need to use our energy to start healing the Earth.

No more supporting the destructive systems.

Ecologically Regenerative Food Forests.

There are many incredible ways we can accelerate nature's healing, one of the most effective ways is through ecologically regenerative food forests. This means the creation of food producing, natural ecosystems which provide resources for communities as well as habitat for birds, insects and many animals

 

By creating these regenerative food forests and growing our own food, sharing resources as a community and reducing consumption of products that harm Earth,

we can collectively create a much better world. We could create

resilient and sustainable communities both locally and

globally, that inspire and inform other people

on how to protect our children's futures;

Free food, free energy, free shelter.

All of this is possible and more:

Free people. 

One Tribe.

One Planet.

One chance.

The planet is in trouble, but there is still time to change; 

If caring people come together, we can create something amazing.

Growing  nutritious food within safe, natural, regenerative forest habitat.

One Tribe S.jpg

Come Out and Be Separate

By coming out of and being separate from broken systems,

forming communities, sharing talents, skills and resources, we can act now

together responsibly and sustainably to protect nature & create a much better world.​​

Create a Much Better World Together

Forming sustainable, responsible, compassionate communities living in harmony with nature is the simplest and most enjoyable way to protect our children's futures and all life on Earth. For most of human history this is how the great human tribes lived. It is only relatively

recently that so many allowed systems to separate us from nature.

We can regenerate thriving natural ecosystems worldwide

Planting Ecological Food Forests

By creating ecologically balanced natural food forests, we can both regenerate habitat, capture carbon,  prevent soil erosion, protect ecology and produce nutritious food - supporting and supported by a natural sustainable thriving human community.

 

Planting of trees for carbon sequestration is the most effective means of mitigating climate change. Planting food and creating shelter can also free people from the worst of poverty.

  

Let's plant lots of food forests, to regenerate nature and feed humanityWorldwide!

By Sharing Resources we Live Sustainably and Save Nature

A New Earth

RESTORING THE EARTH

We should be living alongside thriving natural ecosystems. Human beings are designed to cultivate Earth's great garden, not to destroy it. To do this we need to choose a life in harmony, not opposition, with the natural ecological regeneration of nature.

Too often illegal logging destroys habitat that was supposed to be protected. Without a local population of human guardians much illegal destruction goes unchallenged.

 

Ecologically sustainable, conscious communities formed within and around natural habitats for the purpose of ecological restoration are the most sustainable way of protecting endangered species.

Through regenerative communities we can

restore and extend former habitats to protect and reintroduce endangered animals. Communal ecological regeneration projects can more closely monitor and protect the natural ecosystems upon which nature depends while providing a pathway for humanity and the world to return to a truly sustainable, natural and ancient way of living.

A Sustainable Community Project.jpg

Art to Save Earth

The goal of this project is to prepare a space for those who care for each other and nature.

This space will provide workshops and facilities to free others from the world while

sharing regenerative collaborative culture in a place to recover and transform.

If you would like to support this project into reality I am using all profits from Art Sales to create the first spaces (we are forming the first community now, so get in touch if you feel called).   Thereafter each site will support others to form and grow organically as one united

community, working freely together for humanity and nature worldwide.

On top of this all of my fine art directly funds carbon sequestration through several supported tree planting projects in key animal habitats.

 

Art, collaboration and loving, conscious creation can truly save nature.

Protecting Earth is the Way, the truth and the life.
