How do we get our friends to take their heads out of the sand?
On the one hand we have mostly good,comfortable lives where we have more than enough – on the other, there are disasters around the world taking place almost daily, and on an unprecedented scale.
So we can balance our lives by enjoying what is good whilst embracing the bad. That is, dedicating some of your life to tackling some aspects of the “bad”.
The main thing though, is we need to convince all those in our lives to get on the case. No particular way…What ever presses their buttons.
Whether it’s a protest organisation, a lobbying group, being one of thousands signing a petition, just doing something to help is making the difference.
We are showing our collective power and it is starting to shift us away from the selfish, destructive short-term future that those in “authority” seem to cling on to.
We know that is going to impact on ourselves and future generations and most of us are only too aware that we cannot continue to be part of a system that depletes our resources at a faster rate than they can be created.
