We Are The Hummingbirds
“There comes a time when humanity is called to shift to a new level of consciousness . . . that time is now.” - Wangari Maathai
We are "hummingbirds" at The Aegis Institute, inspired by Wangari Maathai's own life-long inspiration from "the story of the hummingbird," a story she often told as the encapsulation of her own mission to make the world a better place.
