What:
Talk
When:
10:20 AM, Friday 4 Jun 2021 EDT (1 hour 15 minutes)
How:
What kind of actions are most effective in shifting cultures and systems at the rate, scale, speed, and depth that is called for today?  With more and more attention on climate activism, it is worth considering the qualities of agency that are most effective at generating change. In this talk, I will consider the relationship between individual change, collective change and systems change and argue for a “fractal” approach to climate activism.
