The Key to Integral Sustainability
Static PreviewKen Wilber dis­cuss­es some of the ob­sta­cles the world faces in bring­ing any sort of re­al change to our cur­rent eco­log­i­cal cri­sis. The para­dox is that it takes a fair­ly so­phis­ti­cat­ed per­spec­tive to per­ceive the prob­lem—and the more in­clu­sive per­spec­tives be­come, the few­er peo­ple there are in­hab­it­ing them. Some green ap­proach­es to sus­tain­abil­i­ty might in­sist that all we need to do is to sim­ply re­spect the "Great Web of Life," but how can we when the vast ma­jor­i­ty of peo­ple can't even per­ceive it? As our en­vi­ron­men­tal prob­lems are in­deed glob­al in scale, re­quir­ing a glob­al re­sponse, which in turn re­quires tru­ly glob­al per­spec­tives, how can we be­gin lead­ing more peo­ple to­ward be­com­ing part of the so­lu­tion? In this di­a­logue, Ken gives us some sug­ges­tions.

Seven Serious Jokes About Climate Change by Marcus Brigstocke
Static Preview
Performance by comedian Marcus Brigstocke. Climate change is no laughing matter, but when all else fails, perhaps it's time to take humour a bit more seriously? Humour has long been a powerful tool in the social-change arsenal, but is it powerful enough to help us break through the static on this colossal issue? Is 'laughing-it-off' just about evasion, or is it the key to transforming public perspective at scale, in time?


With the climate clock ticking we witness a seemingly endless cycle of public talks, journalistic comment pieces and debates on old turf, mostly reinforcing what we already know and fear.
