A New Story for Climate Change
As wildfires rage in California, as the harmful smoke hangs thick in the Bay area, and as the world prepares to gather in Poland for the United Nations Climate Change Conference, it's more apparent than ever that we need a deeper human response to this existential threat shared by all.
Join members & friends of the Thrive East Bay community for a continued conversation about how we can write a new story about climate change, our role in it, pathways forward, and even engage in a re-consideration of who we even are (Humanity? Political Tribes? Gaia? Nature? the Universe looking back at itself?)
In our last conversation, we unpacked a wide range of perspectives on the climate crisis, and we carefully approached the topic through various modes of knowing (intuitive, linear, data-driven, socio-historical, etc.).
In part two of this conversation, we'll be consolidating our thoughts into a number of coherent new stories. Yes, stories. Often the best way to get closer to the "truth" of something is to look at it from ever more perspectives. We'll be creating a compendium of new stories about our role at this time of climate change, each pointing to a version of truth and pathways for action.
To get the conversation started, please check out this video of Charles Eisentein's talk on "A New Story of Climate Change" and also follow the link to a powerful and well-researched essay by investment strategist Jeremy Grantham titled "The Race of our Lives Revisited."
