Life Itself is a a community of people seeking a wiser world.
Looking around us we can see that neither our society nor our planet are as well as they should be. Greater wisdom is needed both in diagnosis and in finding cures.
We emphasize wisdom because we believe this is about more than finding a quick-fix in technology or politics — it is about finding something deeper within ourselves and our societies.
