Thanks Tathra! The problem with fear-based approaches, which dominate modern day media and politics, is that while they might galvanise a few people into action, for the majority of us it breeds cynicism, apathy or hopelessness. And those emotions don’t lead to solutions.
We should be planning for a future in which things get better. The more people start believing we can create a better society, the sooner we can start taking action. Optimism is the best way to create engagement and creativity. And it’s backed up by the facts :)
