To tackle the Climate & Ecological Emergency we need to fundamentally change the way we live. But that really is a change for the better, in so many ways.
The way we have been living has been harming us as a species, just as much as its been harming our planet and the other animals and plants that we share it with.
Many of us have become lonely, are suffering from mental health issues, are over weight, unfit or suffering from breathing disorders. Many others still don’t have enough to eat, safe drinking water, a secure place to live, access to medical care and basic human rights.
Whilst some of us continue to consume too much even to our own detriment, many others still don’t have the basics.
A vastly unequal world is not a safe world for anyone – and whilst we have been fixated on ever-lasting economic growth our world has become more and more unequal, more volatile and less secure for every one of us – no matter what we have in the bank.
We can’t tackle the climate & ecological crisis as individuals – but together we are society – and as society we can do this by choosing to live more kindly and more sustainably. Here’s a few ideas for how to do just that.
Reduce, reuse & refill
Turn down the tap on new
Make your money matter
Get renewables if you can
Make space for nature
We are what we eat – so how happy are you about that?
In a Climate & Ecological Emergency one of the most important things we can do as an individual is to eat sustainably and kindly – but what that means is controversial and has been polarised into a black and white debate between veganism on the one side and eat what you want /support our farmers on the other. What is needed is a much more subtle and thoughtful approach than the media likes to portray. So here are our thoughts on what it means to eat sustainably and kindly.
