In which I open with a call for the need of being a joiner, then share two examples of obstacles to progress regarding ecology; oversold techno fixes and patriarchal attitudes. Then a piece about the different kinds of hope followed by two examples of cities taking (painfully) incremental but worthy actions. I end with a follow up about flying with the agenda of the movement for degrowth of flying, and a case for small farmers to form coops instead of selling by themselves at popup markets; Joining is liberating vs ‘being your own boss’. which is just self harm if you ask me.
