For me, necessity.
I don’t see that I have a future if we don’t take immediate action. The status quo is ridden with a whole host of converging crises: climate change, disease and economic inequality, to name a few. The world as we know it was not built to last, so we need to think of ways to innovate the status quo.
I think that when I post things, or when other young people post things about the necessity for transformation, we are brushed off by current leaders as “idealistic.” But it is not idealistic to imagine a sustainable future and what it looks like. It is necessary.
What are your thoughts?
