What can I do to act on climate & social change? First job is knowledge (2023 edition)

Welcome to year four of everything I’m reading, watching and listening to in regard to the multiple planetary crises’ we face (the polycrisis), as well as articles on important social issues, because how societies function is fundamental if we want to have a stable environment for human flourishing.

All information is presented without opinion, even the stuff I completely disagree with, because we MUST be open to looking at all angles if we want to understand these vastly complex issues.

As always, this is a labour of love, but it aligns with an important message I share all the time – it is time to pay attention to the information that matters, and what is going on in our world matters.

The shiny stuff (political scandals, celebrity nonsense, and more) in the long run, does not matter. We must turn away from the distractions, but it’s hard when those who “design” the distractions are very VERY good at it.

The challenge with facing up to the multiple crises’ is it’s impossible not to sink into eco-anxiety or despair. Please do check out my blog Multiple resources for eco-anxiety from institutions to books to videos and pass it on to anyone you know who is suffering. I will continue to update it as I find more information.

This blog is updated every week (or so) with the information I am reading, watching and listening to. If you need a place for reference material, check back regularly. If you need information to fight arguments, check back regularly. I don’t read or watch everything, of course, but this is what I do ingest and it’s comprehensive.

If you’re interested in older news (and six months is old when it comes to the climate, because it’s all escalating so quickly now), here is the full year for 2022, the full year for 2021, and the full year for 2020. If you want to keep up to date on the broader news, you can check my Weekend Reads, which I publish every Saturday.

Join the fight, we need you! It’s time for #OneBillion people imperfectly changing and radically reducing our impact on earth.



Here it is

Before you dig deeper, if there is one video to watch, I recommend this. Understanding our shared history and our minds, is one of the greatest challenges we have on our hands, as well as the greatest opportunity. Communicating with clarity on these issues is vital. I know no one wants to spend any time on anything these days, but this is three and a half hours that will make you think, reflect, and hopefully, arm you with you really incredibly useful ideas too.

If you didn’t have an opportunity to watch it live, I recommend the last Climate Courage of the year, with Dr. David Ko, Richard Busellato and SirCollins Manyasi. There is so much knowledge and insight here, which is so valuable for all of us to understand. If we can grasp the scale of the challenges we face, we can work out how to overcome.

Beautiful work from my friend Andrew Psarianos of Picture Perfect Productions. There are so many amazing people in this world, who need their stories told! Can you tell stories about the amazing people changing our world?

Meet Irum Fawad, a true power-woman, who is relentless in driving changes in Pakistan, for women, for young people, and for broader society. She is a lady with swagger, and I love a lady with swagger.

Cop28 failure

Timothy Ndgewa is the African representative of Rethinking Choices, and he’s working relentlessly to contribute to change across the continent.

SirCollins Manyasi is working to support grassroots women’s organisations in Kenya – very inspiring.

Representation matters, and when it comes to the fight for our future, women and minority groups must have a seat at every table where decisions are being made. If we miss the wisdom of more than half of humanity, we will not get our next steps right!
