"Think globally, act locally." -- Rene Dubos, former advisor to the United Nations

Dubos is quoted from remarks he made in 1972 to the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment. Dubos suggested that ecological consciousness should begin at home. He believed that there needed to be a creation of a World Order in which "natural and social units maintain or recapture their identity, yet interplay with each other through a rich system of communications." (Eblen and Eblen, 1994, p. 702)
