The recent report released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is part of an ongoing call for humanity to do all we can for the wellbeing of people, the planet and future generations.
As the powerful quote above (from Yeye Luisah Teish and shared via our friends at Advaya) states: “We are the ancestors of the future and what we do now will have an impact“.
The way we respond now matters. There is so much important work happening already and so much more to be done.
From a wellbeing perspective, some actions we can take include:
- Sign the Wellbeing Economy Petition, pushing the UK government to acknowledge that we cannot have endless growth on a finite planet.
- Connect more with the nature, in and around us. Let’s love and be inspired by the beautiful world we are a part of. See here and here for more on this.
- Buy less, share more – as modelled through our Share Shed – Library of Things and many other similar projects. Let’s move beyond our culture of endless consumption. See here for more on this.
- Last but not least, let’s connect with each other: This is so important, especially as current events can evoke many strong emotions. To help us connect, please sign up to our next online event, and also share what is motivating you to take care of the wellbeing of people + planet: You can find this post on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter – and share your views in the comments. Thank you so much for your care.
We will all continue to do what we can to build wellbeing together, for people and the planet.
