Sanford Hinden spent 23 years working for UN agencies and has never quit thinking of about how to solve the world’s biggest problems.
He says, “I work every day to Save Planet Earth from biospheric collapse, nuclear war, and waste of funds on militarization and surveillance through communication to leaders, and I create organizations, programs and projects that help people, families and communities be creative, communicative and sustainable.”
Recently, Sanford and I caught up for a conversation about his ideas. You can watch them on the video above.
He is working to bring his vision to reality. He says, “Having 45 years of experience in nonprofits for global change, I know the importance of gathering the right people for a long-term effort. I am collaborating with global educator and filmmaker Nara Bateson, global educator and entrepreneur Joy Case, GreenHearted environmental educator Julie D. Johnston, and global systems educator Alexander Laszlo on Commonwealth for Earth & Humanity. Each has a network of thought leaders and persons of influence.”
He adds, “As a child, I loved animals and nature. I would visit the Bronx Zoo often, and the United Nations as a teenager and young adult. I have helped many organizations and had great mentors like Dr. Robert Muller of the UN, and Fr. Thomas Berry, best known for his work with The New Story. I have many proposals and programs for a better world cataloged on my website, freely available for anyone to use. You can see them here.”
