Everything needs to change to reverse climatic and ecological breakdown. So let’s think big. Richard Priestley presents some ideas about how tens of trillions of pounds/dollars/Euros might be raised and spent globally to maximize human wellbeing and ecological restoration. 20th to 27th September the ‘Schools Strike for Climate’ are planning a week of Global action and asking us adults to participate, and Extinction Rebellion are planning something big for October. Richard would love feedback on the ideas he’ll be presenting, and to hear what local groups are planning for the Autumn, and how we can collaborate to achieve maximum effect.
