Creating Better Stories To Inspire Real Change
Colin Beavan (aka "No Impact Man") shares his thoughts on how to best engage citizens in discussions about climate change.
In 2006, I became increasingly concerned both about climate change and the military action taken by the United States to secure its access to oil supplies in the Middle East.
As a journalist and author, I wanted to find a way to make the case for a lower reliance on fossil fuels and other natural resources to the American and European publics.
However, I did not believe a typical political discourse would not do the trick. There had been many of such books already written that attempted such a discourse.
