…the narrative of personal responsibility around climate change has been destructive – it makes us turn inward and focus on ourselves as the cause of the problem, and lets those who are actually responsible…off the hook. I don’t think we should feel individually guilty for climate change, but I think we should all feel collectively responsible for building a better world.
In this fight for climate justice 350Brookyn’s collective work focuses on the necessary structural changes to our energy systems. However, we encourage and honor individual work that strives to implement good practices into one’s everyday life – big or small – for the well-being of our planet and all of its inhabitants. We recognize our relationship with nature as being a part of it, not in opposition nor in authority. As the natural world flourishes, so do human beings – as the natural world is exploited, disrespected and poisoned, so are human beings.
Here we offer resources to help guide people to live respectfully on Earth, lowering individual carbon footprint and sustaining the webs of life for generations to come.
