Every day we hear or read about climate change and environmental degradation. The British newspaper the Guardian has been using terms such as “climate crisis” and “climate emergency” in reporting stories on climate change.
The term “climate crisis” is used here as a shorthand notation for many related issues: pollution, loss of habitat for different species, human population growth, human poverty, global inequalities, political/economic/cultural imperialism, and many other natural and social changes.
In this session, we are not to discuss how all these problems came about, how they develop and how they are interconnected. In other words, we take climate crisis as a given. Instead of spending our time today on the problem(s), let’s talk about our personal solutions. We want to hear and learn from each other:
1. An activity you have adopted in response to the climate crisis;
2. How is this activity related to climate crisis as you see it; and
3. What impact this activity may have on climate crisis or the environment.
Please join us.
