unify summit youth ambassadorAs a Youth Ambassador for Native Children’s Survival, a nonprofit that focuses on raising awareness around issues facing Mother Earth, Ta’Kaiya Blaney has presented UN meetings and countless conferences across the globe.

At 13 years old, Ta’Kaiya is community action hero and a passionate advocate for better qualities of living in Indigenous First Nations territories and ending oppression, racism and corruption.

“My name is Ta’Kaiya. I feel that as humans, as participants and beings that walk upon this earth, it is our responsibility to help the earth. We all need to take steps towards a clean and healthy future regarding animals, humans, plants, and the various ecosystems. Our earth is our home. Over the past four years, I’ve been an advocate for providing better qualities of living in Indigenous First Nations territories, and ending the oppression, racism, and corruption we face from our government and within our community.

I’ve spoke at UN meeting across the globe, including The TUNZA UN children and youth conference on the environment in Bandung Indonesia, and the Rio+20 UN conference on the environment in Rio de Janeiro. I advocate to change not only the human condition, but also in the condition of our planet. In my culture it’s a fact, and an understanding of life, that everything is connected, and we were put on this earth to be stewards and caretakers of the environment. In my culture, it’s a teaching to do more than connect the dots, to see the picture as a whole. I feel that advocating and speaking at mere conferences isn’t enough. Actions speak louder than words.”

hhA world renown spiritual master and yoga, H.H. Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji is the spiritual head of one of India’s largest spiritual institutions, the Parmarth Niketan Ashram in Rishikesh India. Sarawatiji has also co-founded several humanitarian and environmental organizations, such as Ganga Action Parivar, to protect the Ganga river and the Divine Shakti Foundation, to support and empower impoverished women and children.

H.H. Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji’s motto in life is, “In the Service of God and humanity.” Touched by the hand of God at the tender age of eight, Pujya Swamiji left His home to live a life devoted to God and humanity, spending His youth in silence, meditation and austerities high in the Himalayas.

At the age of seventeen, after nine years of unbroken, intense sadhana, He returned from the forest—under the orders of His guru—and obtained an academic education to parallel His spiritual one. Pujya Swamiji has master’s degrees in Sanskrit and Philosophy as well as fluency in many languages.

Nature based philosopher Daniel Vitalis seeks to help people around the world to ReWild themselves: to reconnect to their “wild” and uncultivated side, and live a healthier and more self sufficient life. Founder of SurThrival and ReWild Yourself Magazine, Vitalis helps people around the world awaken to the part in themselves that is free, independent, and wild.

I believe that in your heart resides the vigorous spirit of something wilder, something stronger, and something more brilliant than you have ever imagined. At the heart of each of your cells resides the ancient record of your DNA. It reaches back through the ages connecting you to each and every one of your ancestors, and to the wildness that existed in our species before the degenerative processes of domestication took hold.

Awakening that wildness is what fuels my passion for the work that I do! It’s why I have created this website and why I’m encouraging you to “ReWild Yourself!”.

robbinsFor the past 30 years, bestselling author, activist and humanitarian John Robbins has helped change how people think about health, environmentalism, and animal welfare in North America and across the globe. His life’s work, including his famous book Diet for a new America and his nonprofit EarthSave, are focused on co-creating a healthier, kinder, and more sustainable world.

The only son of the founder of the Baskin-Robbins ice cream empire, John Robbins was groomed to follow in his father’s footsteps, but chose to walk away from Baskin-Robbins and the immense wealth it represented to “…pursue the deeper American Dream…the dream of a society at peace with its conscience because it respects and lives in harmony with all life forms. A dream of a society that is truly healthy, practicing a wise and compassionate stewardship of a balanced ecosystem.”
