Read the sections below to learn about how each of us can make a difference.
Beyond our surface differences, we're all the same.
We all want to be loved. We all want to be respected. We all want to be a part of something bigger than ourselves.
If we can learn to celebrate those similarities rather than fight over our differences

What connects us is far more important than what separates us.
The world is an incredible place, if we choose to see it.
The beauty of nature is only matched by its fragility. So get out there and experience the wonders of our incredible planet, but also remember that we have a responsibility to ensure that future generations will be equally wowed.
We all share one planet; we must be the best stewards we can.
Reality often trumps dreams. We tell ourselves 'one day' we'll go after our passions. Years later, we still tell ourselves the same thing.
Your reality is only going to change if you change it. Ask yourself two simple questions: What do you love to do? Why aren't you doing it?
It might just be time to turn 'one day' into 'Day One'.
Take Your Seat is the ongoing journey of a director's chair, connecting us all to each other, to our planet, and to our best selves.
