This week I weigh in on Black Lives Matter, connect it to the climate and sustainability crises, and explain why I’m joining Extinction Rebellion’s next Rebel Wave from June 12-21. A big shout-out to Osita Nwanevu’s excellent February essay “End the GOP” in The New Republic and thanks to everyone who joined the workshop series “Stories from the Future” that I’m facilitating with Dylan Harris as part of ACUD MACHT NEU’s Collective Practices program. Check out the stream of the first workshop while it’s on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/watch/live/?v=861674787724449.
Welcome to “This Situation”! I talk about my time in Tino Sehgal’s fascinating installation/performance piece at Gropius Bau this past month, and how it felt to be an often lone voice on climate action. Then I get real about this podcast and promise to get back to my intended focus on positive visions of the future and degrowth.
