What if a new project could nurture, develop, launch and distribute artistic creations that could reach people profoundly — breaking through the expectation that we will continue business as usual?
A daily message by a high-profile leader or celebrity, hosted by one organization, promoted by hundreds on their websites and through social media.
A day when high-level leaders describe their personal awakenings and concerns, and pledge actions at their companies and organizations to plan for the next 50 years, not the next few quarters or years.
Interview longtime advocates whose activism in some way involves climate. Ask them: “Given all you’ve lived through and all you know, what sustains and motivates you to keep at it?” Start with high-profile leaders; post video and print interviews; invite anyone to submit their entries. Curate the result; produce anthologies, ebooks, etc. (First step: reaching out to interviewers.)
Create a 21st Century Book & Movie to Mobilize the World. A non-fiction graphic novel about the fossil fuel industry — a film noir-style chronicle of infamy. A complement to current campaigns promoting divestment.
A customizable flyer directed at people who are active in other causes, explaining why climate change isn’t “just one more issue,” and including links to key organizations and starting points.
