The PTN Alliance includes these inspiring individuals and organizations:
Center for Emergent Diplomacy: http://www.emergentdiplomacy.org/
The Center for Emergent Diplomacy is an action research network of social innovators who facilitate the space for new ideas and potential solutions to emerge. We apply the self-organizing power of Complexity Science to resilient and collaborative networks that address global climate change, increased inequality, corrupt governance systems and endless war. In spring 2018, the Center will host the EMERGE.NOW, https://www.e-mergenow.org/
Northern ICE: http://www.northernicenwt.org/
Northern Integrated Cultures with the Environment (Northern ICE) is a non-profit organization established in 2010 by Sahtu Dene Elder Be’sha Blondin to give a voice to the Elders, particularly those who are the keepers of the environmental and spiritual knowledge. Their initiatives are unique as they aim towards the integration of the spirit of the environment into the current ways society approaches the stewardship of Mother Earth. Be’sha Blondin was a delegate and presenter at the 2015 Parliament of the World’s Religions.
Global Center for Indigenous Leadership and Lifeways: http://gcill.org/
GCILL is a platform for education and informing people about indigenous ways of knowing, wisdom for modern times and spirituality that raises human consciousness and harmonious relationship with Mother Earth. Having had a traditional upbringing, Ilarion Merculieff, founder of GCILL, has been, and continues to be, a strong voice and activist calling for the meaningful application of this traditional knowledge and wisdom obtained from elders in Alaska and throughout the world to the resolution of modern day challenges
Brian Rembrandt, founder of WatchThinkVote: http://watchthinkvote.com/about.html
Brian’s mission at WatchThinkVote compliments everything Pull Together Now is engaged in. He is dedicated to helping people everywhere solve problems by finding consensus points within complex issues. Brian has developed exclusive interactive communication technology, WatchThinkVote (WTV), which allows people anywhere, in any language, to register and measure their opinions on anything, in real time. WTV replaces costly random polling and surveys. Finally, everyone can instantly cast their vote and measure the results about everything from current events and politics to issues and surveys. Online, from mobile devices and/or computers, participants engage through interactive stories which break down complex issues into understandable chunks of information, click through decision trees and discover the consensus points where dialogue begins and bickering ends. It is the most inclusive, accurate and economically efficient data-driven consensus technology available today, and can be customized for use by issue for individuals, institutions, government, organizations and business.
Center for Earth Ethics: http://www.centerforearthethics.org/
The Center for Earth Ethics (CEE) regards our ecological crisis as the consequences of a deeper malady: the dominant economic development agenda that results in the exploitation of people and nature for short-term financial gain. We cultivate the public consciousness needed to make changes in policy and culture that will establish a new paradigm based on the sustained well-being of all people and our planet. This change in consciousness is grounded in respect for nature, scientific understanding and concern for the most vulnerable people, communities and ecosystems. Mindahi Crescencio Bastida Munoz and Geraldine Patrick Encina are scholars in residence at CEE and work closely with PTN partners on environmental and indigenous cultural topics.
Parliament of the World’s Religions: https://www.parliamentofreligions.org/

American Indian Institute: http://twocircles.org/
The American Indian Institute recognizes traditional Indian wisdom as an endangered human resource that is relevant to today’s world and that holds keys to our common survival. Looking seven generations into the future, we see a world in which the values and traditions of indigenous peoples are respected for the wisdom they hold for the Earth and all its peoples. We pursue this vision by supporting the Traditional Circle of Indian Elders and Youth as it teaches, motivates, and celebrates traditional Indian peoples today.
