Of late, I have found myself wanting to write about a certain class of thing. About the ways in which the world isn't the place I want it to be; about the ways in which individuals can act to change that. Right now I'm spending a lot of time thinking about environmental issues and climate change, but that broadens out very quickly, into considering the structural problems which have led us to the difficult and dangerous situation we are in today, and where we might want to be instead.
This blog is a space for practical tips: on cycling, and gardening, and reducing your own impact on the planet. It's a space for thinking about the issues: what is the deal with carbon trading? It's a space for thinking and talking about structural alternatives: how do we as a society make decisions, act collectively, talk to one another, and how else (how better) might these things be done? It's time to empower ourselves, through knowledge and skills, to create the changes we want to see in the world.
