Andrew is the convener of Inspiring Transition, an educational movement to inspire mainstream commitment to transitioning to what he calls a "life-sustaining society".
In May, we are hosting two Zoom meetings to explore how we can catalyse commitment to transformative change.
This is what Andrew has to say about the first event:
You may be concerned about current disastrous environmental trends. Always the question arises: But what can I do?The events are stand-alone. You can take part in one, without necessarily taking part in the other but ideally you should register and participate in both.
As individuals on our own we have little influence on the great course of things. However, aligned towards a common overarching goal we can be hugely influential. In this conversation we will explore how to stimulate on a mass scale the thinking that will get us on track to evolve a society that operates within planetary boundaries, and promotes the well-being of humans and other life forms.
We are not starting from scratch, in this first event I will introduce a simple model for enabling ordinary people to think usefully about systemic change.
The problem to be solved – how to evolve a healthy culture – is massive. There is enormous scope for innovation, and I am interested in your ideas. At the same time, hearteningly, there are a multitude of positive initiatives already underway, and we have huge resources.
This is part of a larger movement to catalyse mainstream commitment to doing everything required turn things around and transition to a life-affirming culture.
