In our latest podcast, the lovely Lily Myers and I (co-creators of The Shapes We Make) discuss our desire to come at environmental activism from a place of joy and juiciness. We could only skim the surface of this complicated issue in our thirty-minute long podcast but we are so very excited to continue the conversation.
NOTE: We talk a lot in this podcast about micromovements. We KNOW that what we need in the face of drastic climate change is a revolution—in how we approach energy, the economy, development. But we strongly believe that radical change and small steps can—and must—coexist. People are motivated to act by diverse catalysts. We need to start wherever we can, however we can.
For more on this idea, read our essay (inspired by Joanna Macy's powerful tome on working through environmental despair) on the power of micromovements. And be sure to give our podcast a listen and to let us know your thoughts—we deeply value your perspective!
