Hello CCSD Community
Everyone has been impacted in some way by the current Covid-19 pandemic. You are not alone in your struggles. Together we can move through this and come out on the other side stronger and more connected than ever. There will be many challenges and bumps (probably more like mountains) to get over. As a collective of conscious leaders and citizens of the world, we will persevere. We always have. We will again.

The COVID-19 pandemic is a global crisis whose full impact is not yet known and it has already shifted our day-to-day lives and the way we do business. However, it is in crisis that the human spirit can be at its best in creativity, care, and resilience. People are stepping up to support those in need. Conscious businesses are working hard to try to mitigate impact and serve their stakeholders.
We want to focus on these heroic stories of the human spirit delivering its best through creativity, care and resilience.
We invite you to tell us your stories to inspire hope and share conscious practices with others!
