One of the best things we can do as changemakers, along with studying topics like policy and history, education and economics, is to study ourselves and the inner life of others who realized impact. The more we know ourselves, the more mindfully we can interact with the world and each other and the more consciously and powerfully we can make change.
To be engaged, empowered and impactful citizens of a world with climate change, we must tend to our capacity for joy. Joy, even in the face of the very hard truths about our world today. Joy especially in the face of those truths. From joy comes our celebration of all that is good about this world and all that is possible. Joy informs our vision for a better world. And it is that celebration that inspires creative, solutions-focused action grounded in love.
