“If you close your eyes and think about the future, what do you feel? If you imagine the planet and all the life that we cohabit with 20 years from now, what do you see? Take a moment. I don’t know about you, but I feel pretty scared and overwhelmed as I sit here with a tight knot in my stomach. And I know that this is how many people feel. I also know that many don’t need to look to the future to feel terrified – their present is terrifying enough. Among those who desire change, despair is currently endemic.
As we scroll through our news and social media feeds, we are bombarded with narratives of polarisation and philosophies of hatred and fear. We then face the very stark realities of burgeoning social injustice, racism and an escalating climate and ecological crisis. Within this context, people all over the world – especially those who have the privilege of climate breakdown being presented as a future threat – are suffering from what some call ‘climate anxiety’ and others ‘pre-traumatic stress disorder’. This is arguably a natural response, considering the dangerous situation we are in.
But the future is unwritten and the past provides us with countless histories of cultures that have rapidly transformed for the better. It’s important for us to remember that all the solutions we need to address the climate and ecological crisis already exist. Future generations will look back at this moment and marvel at how we knew so much, in such excruciating detail, but were unable to take significant action to address the root causes. “
