Sustainability: You Matter More Than You Think

Global peace and sustainability seem like distant dreams right now, but what if we are underestimating our individual and collective capacities for social change? Climate change, biodiversity loss, and increasing inequity, polarization and conflict call for us to think and act differently, and to open our minds to new ways of being and doing. In this talk, I use the concepts and ideas from quantum social science as a starting point to explore the relationship between individual change, collective change, and systems change. Quantum social change describes a conscious, nonlinear, and nonlocal approach to transformations that is grounded in our inherent oneness, and it recognizes that we are entangled through language, meaning, and shared contexts. Aligned with integral understandings of human potential, the talk will emphasize why we matter more than we think, not just in theory, but in practice.
