Let’s have faith in reality and humanity, not the tired hopes of modernity

“With the environmental crisis, it’s too late for humanity to get an A-grade. It might even be too late to pass. However, to try to do as best we can, while not ruining our lives in the process, makes sense to many of us. We don’t give up because we won’t get an A-grade or because we might not even pass. We keep trying because it feels right to do so. But the way we will keep trying doesn’t mean ruining our life, or that of others, in the meantime.” – Professor Jem Bendell

Using framing to unlock change

Research into the science of framing and how it can help us to be heard and understood. When we change the story and how we tell it, we can change the world. [Fran mentioned this in Storytell.] #framing #conversations #facilitation #scicomm #climate

The Work That Reconnects

Interesting for my facilitation work, work with groups, and in helping people think about climate and environmental disruption. The Work that Reconnects helps people discover and experience their innate connections with each other and the self-healing powers of the web of life, transforming despair and overwhelm into inspired, collaborative action.
