So what’s the big deal?
The “Paris Summit” was about the world’s leaders trying to create a plan that would reduce climate change and move the world toward sustainability. With scientists and other experts – even indigenous peoples of the world — they worked sometimes through the night, and actually came to an agreement, signed by almost 200 countries! First time in world history. Then they had to go back to their own country and deal with their own people – figuring out together what has to happen in at every level, from the national, to the municipal, or even to the ‘village’ level, to achieve the goals set in Paris. It’s a slow process.
But sustainability ultimately comes down to us. You and me. We each have to figure out how we, individually, can change our ways to make it happen. We also need to learn how to influence others to do the same. Here is a collection of links you may find interesting in your journey to knowledge and empowerment. To avoid feeling overwhelmed, try checking out a link a week. I wish you a happy holiday and a most enriching 2016.
