As time ticks on, the gaps meant to be filled by the SDGs widen, wreaking complex and long-term havoc on our global society with inequality and climate disaster multiplying day by day. As above, so below, as without, so within—deaths of despair are on the rise in the developed world with suicide, alcohol, and drug-related deaths at historic highs. The insidious and deep trauma of mass economic inequality and environmental pollution debilitate our collective mental health and well-being. We believe these problems are symptoms. The root causes disconnect us from our self, from others, and nature, making the collaboration, courage, and commitment needed to bring about the SDGs difficult if not impossible.
